Soon after, Term released his solo-debut, Politics As Usual, a project that included a Mount Rushmore like array of producers; DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Large Professor, Havoc, Alchemist, Hi-Tek, Buckwild, Easy Mo Bee & Nottz. Politics As Usual was one of those rare projects which managed to merge the best of both worlds for Hip-Hop fans; meshing classic boom-bap production from a virtual who’s who list of production royalty with Term’s lyricism, swagger and bravado.
Just as in life, in hip-hop everything comes full-circle and while a lot has changed since Termanology released his debut; he’s back with More Politics. Similar to his debut, More Politics again brings together the elite of the elite beatsmiths, as Just Blaze, Q-Tip, Buckwild, Hi-Tek, Nottz, Dame Grease, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and his brother from another mother Statik Selektah all contribute production. Further, Term has also recruited all-star cast of luminaries to round out what promises to be one of 2016’s most diverse projects; Joey Bada$$, Bun B, Styles P, Sheek Louch, Saigon, KXNG Crooked, Bodega Bamz, Westside Gunn, Conway, Your Old Droog & Chris Rivers.
“I am very excited to get back to my original formula of composing an album with nothing but legends behind the boards” Term states. “Even though I have done a bunch of projects with other artists, including collaborative albums with Statik Selektah and Lil Fame of MOP, among others (EP’s and mixtapes), More Politics is my second official album. I’m very proud of it and I can’t wait to see how the fans react to it. One of the most exciting things about working on a new project is connecting with people you haven’t worked with before. In this case that would be Just Blaze, Dame Grease, Q-Tip & J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League; all producers I am a big fan of. Having them on the album is truly a blessing.”
