    Default anyone heard the new Bilal album?

    this has had so bad promotion it's not even funny but i read somewhere that it's been released. Bilal is one of my favorite modern soul singers, he always kill his guest spots on hip-hop songs (especially his work with Common stands out to me; tracks like "6th Sense", "The People", "Misunderstood", etc.). his debut album from 2001, "1st Born Second", is an amazing album and one of the best soul albums in the 2000s if you ask me - he really proved he's very versatile on there, everything from sugar sweet soul tracks to Dr. Dre produced hip-hop bangers to sing over and experimental songs like the title track. i wonder if his new album is as good tho, it's been 10 years since his debut and i have no clue what producers he's worked with on this one either. any info is appreciated and if you have listened drop a little review please.

    otherwise just use the thread to give Bilal a little appreciation:

    co-sign this, that brother has a unique, very soulful voice, his first album was sick, a lot of classics on there

    i don't get why a lot of neo soul type albums don't be getting the proper promotion they deserve, i think its got to do wit the fact a lot of those artists are on underground independents so they probably don't have a lot of bread for promotion for obvious reasons, its a sad situation all around, but i'll look out for this album, because i didn't even no he dropped a new album either

    here's some other heads i want to hear some albums from thats from the same cloth or i have soulful voices that i would like to hear over neo soul type productions

    "Airtight's Revenge" was dope as hell. Flying Lotus directed the video for "Levels", which is my favorite song on the album. The video is cool too.
