Following his debut album with Mello Music Group, Elaquent returns with his sophomore project with the label, Forever Is A Pretty Long Time. Unlike his previous albums, which were mostly instrumental, this record opts to showcase the producerâ€™s collaborative abilities. Inspired by the likes of iconic hip hop producer albums like Hi-Teknology (Hi-Tek) and Welcome 2 Detroit (J Dilla), the new album boasts collaborations with the likes of Oddisee, Blu, Guilty Simpson, Chester Watson, among others.
â€œIâ€™ve always wanted to do this type of record, but it never felt right to do until now. Most of my albums would feature only 1 or 2 collaborations as a change of pace for my mostly instrumental albums, but this time, I really wanted to challenge myself to do something a little different and showcase what I can do with a number of my favorite artists.â€
Expanding versatility is a necessary step to try to make timeless music that will last forever, and as all know, Forever is a Pretty Long Time.
