Parrish Smith (PMD of EPMD) has been building a solo career for more than 22 years. Three albums, starting with 1994’s ‘Shade Business‘, have shown just what PMD has been able to do on his own, both as an MC & as a producer.
Since 2003’s slept-on ‘The Awakening‘, Parrish has been much more quiet than his partner (Erick Sermon) on the solo tip. This new album brings the groove back to the EPMD sound & Parrish owns his greatness.
The MC talks slick, lays out his accolades, & explains just why his rhymes are ageless. The video single for “Slow Your Roll” gives an early impression on the album, entitled ‘Busine$$ Mentality‘, which will be released on 10.6.2017 via Goon Musick.
