DJ Rhettmatic & Aloe Blacc are ‘Blaccmatic’

One of our favorite Beat Junkies, DJ Rhettmatic, celebrates his birthday today by gifting us with ‘Circa 2004: Blaccmatic’, a never before released collaborative album with Aloe Blacc.
Circa 2004 - Dirty

This project features a pre-soul singing Aloe Blacc, and fledgling producer, DJ Rhettmatic. Back in 2004, Aloe was a bonafide emcee, barely tapping into his soulful vocal abilities, and Rhettmatic was producing solely for The Visionaries. Intended to be much more than a vaulted album, ‘Blaccmatic’ didn’t get to see the light as both the rapper and DJ moved forward with other projects. Skip ahead over a decade later. After rediscovering the album in the archives, both Rhett and Aloe agreed that it was only right to share this wonderful piece of work with the world.

‘Blaccmatic’ is a moment in the life of two gifted artists at a crossroads in their creative paths. Happy birthday to DJ Rhettmatic, and a big thank you for (finally) sharing this gem!
