The second leak from Declaime‘s forthcoming Self Study album,
a raw & to-the-point song entitled, “East Meets West” -
matches Dudley with DMV area & Low Budget Crew representative, Kev Brown
over a spacey, hard-hitting creeper of a beat
from Ms.One herself – Georgia Anne Muldrow.
Succinct & poignant – the track features two verses, no hook -
with both of the MC’s two distinct styles adding the perfect balance to each other.
Packaged along with this new Self Study album,
will be Interplanetary Peace Talks 2012 A.U. -
a full-length documentary on the life of Dudley Perkins -
which features candid footage of Declaime in his earliest stages as an MC,
in the studio w/ Madlib, Lootpack, Oh No, Kan Kick & more,
plus footage of him at home w/ his children
& performing on the road w/ Georgia.
More than ever before, do you get a real glimpse into the man behind the music.
The movie will be available as a DVD accompanying the CD,
but be on the look out for an exclusive online premiere of the documentary
coming on the album’s release date, August 16th.
You can download “East Meets West” below,
as well as catch up on Dudley’s first video from Self Study,
for its first single “Quartz” – which he also co-directed with Georgia.
