ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Just when you thought rap music would never regain its integrity, and the essence of the art form was permanently replaced by all that glitters, unrealistic street tales (that manifest into jail time) and fatalities, here lies a beacon of hope. Olskool Ice-Gre, best known as the male half of the Chicago Hip Hop duo Abstract Mindstate, is the light at the end of a dark tunnel that has been labeled Hip Hop. A true emcee since the glory days of his group, this Southside Chi native never abandoned the roots of what made Rap music the most viable genre. Raised in the Englewood community, a section of the city that has earned status as the highest crime rated area in Chicago has yet to influence a line of content in Olskool’s poetry. He chooses to rhyme about hope, relationships, faith and life from a regular guy perspective. His penchant for wordplay, metaphors and double entendre’s transform everyday dialogue into a thought provoking conversation piece. It’s all about the art to Ice-Gre which is why Olskool is the prefix to his name. " I added Olskool to my name years ago. It’s my way of showing respect to the forefathers as well as embracing the term Old School which is the period in Hip Hop that inspires me most." During his college days, the Jackson State Alum co-founded the legendary Southern/Midwest Hip Hop crew The Stewpot Stowaways, which is the foundation to notable individuals in music and fashion such as David Banner (Loud/Universal), Scrap Dirty (Violator Management/Violator All Star DJ’s) and Leo Brown (leocollections.com). Several roles have been played during his tenure in the Rap game but writing and rhyming is a passion he refuses to let die. These days you can find Olskool Ice-Gre spending equal time in Los Angeles and Chicago working on various music related projects. If you’re a person who enjoys honest, truthful, intelligent lyrics over hard hitting soulful beats then Olskool Ice-Gre Tha Gud Dr. can make a house call.

The Gregarious Mixtape by Olskool Ice-Gre
I LOVE THIS CD! Unfortunately I no longer live in Chicago, where I can run out and find music with similar vibes. I love the fact that this artist doesn't rely on profanity/obscene comments or lude depictions of females, to get his point across. The lyrics AND the beat are fabulous and they compliment one another. They afford the listener an opportunity to appreciate both. I recommend the "olskoolers" and the "newskoolers" cop this one - it's a gem!
