Catch Me On DubCNN

October 21, 2008

Lil Jay of DubCNN Just threw up a lil write up on me, the RFC Mixtape and the upcoming album so head over there to check it out and leave some much appreciated feedback. Like I told ya, we go hard (pause) and the Refreshing is on the way…..

Click Here to peep. The write up is after the jump. Download the tape here.

Long time Dubcnn readers will be familiar with Convinced, one of the most promising new talent on the West Coast. After getting tremendous feedback for his last album “I Do It For The People”, which was made available for free download last year here on Dubcnn [see: Convinced “I Do It For The People” For Free Download], the Los Angeles emcee is back with higher ambitions to make even more noise this time around.

After spending much of 2008 in the studio, Convinced created countless tracks for his new project called “Refreshing”. The name didn’t come out of nowhere, as Convinced has been working hard to bring a fresh new sound to the table. “I never look at it as trying to be different or in a separate category, I look at it as trying to be creative in my own little world” Convinced said about “Refreshing”. “It’s gonna be a classic album, it has that feeling from the golden era of Hip Hop to it. I call this album my Illmatic, because it will bring people back to that essence of when Nas, Redman and Ras Kass first came out.

“Refreshing” is gonna be another project for the fans (and A&R’s), as it’s gonna be available for free download again. Most of the production was handled by his partner J-Trax. “I let my personality go over the music, that’s why me and J-Trax have such an awesome partnership. He comes from every angle with his emotions and lets it out on the music. Convinced said about working with J-Trax. A perfect example of what they cooked up together is the lead single “Miss Memory“, which has been doing well since its release back in January. After having this record on rotation for so long, Dubcnn is happy to announce that the video for “Miss Memory” is (almost) here and it’s being accompanied by the album as they both drop together on October 28th.

To hold you over until it drops, Convinced came up with a little appetizer for his fans: He recently released a mixtape prelude called “The Refreshing Freestyle Countdown” which consists of 21 songs recorded in 21 days. It can be downloaded for free by clicking on the link below. Make sure you stay tuned for both the album and video at the end of the month.

We’ll leave you with a final quote from Convinced: “I want this album to introduce the world to me and I think we accomplished that and I’m definitely excited to see the reaction.” So be sure to hit him up on his MySpace page once you’ve heard the thing.
