Fort Ancient Records returns with ‘Convos’ featuring Monty C. Benjamin.
Cincinnatiâ€™s boom-bap beat factory Fort Ancient Records returns with another small-batch release to conclude a prolific 2017 for the label. Their newest EP, First Team (December 29), is highlighted by the single â€œConvosâ€ from fellow Cincinnati native and critically-acclaimed emcee Monty C. Benjamin.
Production on â€œConvosâ€ was done by three of the resident producers of Fort Ancient Records: Homage CVG, Samuel Steezmore, Dren AD and Waldo from Cincinnati. The label specializes in producer-driven thematic releases that have featured numerous Cincinnati-area lyricists in 2017 and has turned many heads with its stunning anthropomorphic graphic art done by Steezmore.
