After his 2013 mixtape release, ‘Done Thinking‘ (which was hosted by DJ Suss-One), Handles has spent the last few years growing as a person, as an artist, and perfecting his craft & fanbase. Spending a considerable amount of time on the road not only helped give him perspective, it also helped him gain recognition as he opened up for artists such as Skyzoo, Talib Kweli, Rapsody, Joe Budden, Beanie Sigel, Havoc, & EPMD, to name a few.
Handles displays that growth on his new album ‘809060‘, which stands for: ‘Born in the 80’s, Raised in the 90’s, & Taught by the 60’s‘. The idealogy demonstrates Handles background growing up, but also represents a relatable concept album to a generation that were born, raised, & taught from a similar timeline. Handles‘ ‘809060‘ is a thirteen track LP with collaborations from Skyzoo, Kori Nicole, Rone, & more along with stand out productions from OSYM, ArrogantWatcher, T-Rifik, & Maskerade.
Today, Handles shares “Break Records”, which finds him passing the baton back & forth with Skyzoo plus singer Charlie Rae included on hook. Click play and vibe to some great music that’s real, raw, & soulful.
