Chris Conti landed Thr33 Piece Suit on the front page of The Providence Phoenix today. It’s a good, informative read that also came with the news of “Headnod,” the group’s debut single, now available for free download via SoundCloud:
For those still foreign to the Thr33 Piece Suit collective, it’s the long-awaited and formal gathering of three of RI’s finest — emcees Chachi Carvalho and Swann Notty along with part-time rhymer, full-time beat maestro j.DePina. They’re a dream team of local talent, which makes news of their LP, Brand New Vintage, hitting shelves in April (I’ve heard rumor of CD, digital, and vinyl release) just about the most exciting event in hip-hop since, well, since I first heard the trio back in the days of CNJ.
Be sure to stay tuned in to TECB for more Thr33 Piece Suit coverage. And you can count on a bit of it. I’ve only heard a handful of cuts from the album so far, but I can still assure you that Brand New Vintage will be praised in my year-end wrap-up. (Yes, I’m already thinking that far ahead.)
