New music from one of Ann Arbor’s finest, 14KT, off of his upcoming free download project, Nowalataz. The project is a batch of Donuts-inspired beats from 2006 that he will be dropping tomorrow.
As a last minute preview of the project, KT blessed us with the third leak from it, “Cherish.” Below is what he had to say about the track:
“Cherish. I remember I made this one for my bestfriend for her birthday. I was just thinking about how blessed I am to have people in my life that genuinely care about me, hence the title of the joint, Cherish. Craziest thing too is a little after I made this in April, I went to Shoes’ House (A Night @ Northern Lights club). It was packed. Classic night. DJ HouseShoes & Dez were playing Dilla records basically all night and I was on stage standing right behind them RIGHT next to Proof! I got to say whassup to him and tell him I really appreciated him and his music. A little after that, He passed away. Cherish. The next month me & Buff had a show in LA and Karriem Riggins came to it. I was geeked! I little after that show I sent him some beats. This beat was on the CD. A few months later, I was in LA and I got up with him and he gave me a REALLY rough copy of a song he did on it. WHAAT?? lol. He rhymed about how he found his love for jazz music. CRAZY. Maybe one day I can get the final copy and play it for ya’ll.”
And to go along with it, he also threw in the non-album exclusive “The Stylus,” which he said is from the same 2006 batch that the Nowalataz tracks were culled from. 14KT’s debut solo album, The Golden Hour, is out now on MP3 and CD – look out for the self-released vinyl version of the LP coming next month as well.
