Former Pharcyde member, Fatlip, is officially releasing his new Torpor album on vinyl. The album, produced by Sccit & Siavash the Grouch, had previously seen a digital & limited edition CD release. The album is highlighted by the controversial Pharcyde reunion track “My Bad”.
Torpor is a state of hibernation, from which the artist is waking up. “It’s always inspiring to work with up-and-coming producers and blend that excitement with an OG’s expertise. Sccit & Siavash are definitely the most determined producers I’ve ever worked with,” says Fatlip. “Get ready for a beast to come outta hibernation,” he added.
The album’s theme is highlighted in the track “Wake Up” featuring RBX, a famed contributor to some of the greatest albums in hip-hop history. The video “Wake Up” also brings light to the sub-theme of the album; the “torpor” in which the city of Los Angeles is in, with regard to the rising homeless situation. Homelessness is at an all-time high due to city politicians contributing to the issue with dirty politics and turning a blind eye.
The latest single from the Torpor album, titled “The Way”, just dropped today (January 26) and features Krayzie Bone & Sccit. Krayzie Bone, of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, previously appeared on the album’s lead single, “Dust In The Wind”, while Sccit, producer of the album, assisted with the previous single “Energy”, which was accompanied by an eclectic music video.
Vinyl copies of Torpor release on February 3rd and are available for pre-order here.
