Last leak off Mike Dreams’ upcoming album Dreamer’s Poetry, dropping February 8th.
“Hip Hope Anthem (Hello World)” has a small story behind it. I began writing the record in 2008 while attending Soundset in downtown Minneapolis. Dilated Peoples performed “This Way”, one of my favorite records ever. It was a mad inspiring performance and right after that, right there at Soundset, I began writing the lyrics. I finished the record later after connecting with Minneapolis producer Cory Grindberg for the production after I originally heard it on a “Hello Brooklyn” remix he did, from an American Gangster remix album. The guitar solo on the third versewas done by Minnesota’s Mike Fry.
