Prozack Turner - Not Everybody Sleeps At Night (CD)
Prozack Turner's third solo album, features guest features and production from some of the best in the game including Guilty Simpson, Brother Ali, Casual, Jake One, Boom Bap Project and more.
Prozack Turner of Bay Area, Cali crew, Foreign Legion (Kidnapper Van: Beats To Rock While bike Stealin’) returns with his third solo album, “Not Everybody Sleeps At Night” on Hungerstrike Music. Turner has previously worked with many of the best producers in hip hop, such as Organized Noize, Pete Rock, Jay Dilla, Madlib and The Alchemist. The new album is no different in that aspect. It’s a boom bap, soulful emotional soundscape, with songs that are in tune with the current state of the planet, and the challenges we all face. From songs about police who murder children, gentrification, insomnia, lost love or the violent tendencies of human beings, every song on the album is storytelling over beats. The lyrics are clever (in a Mark Twain sort of way) and mixed with a plethora of samples, live instrumentation and scratching. Recorded in Oakland, California last year, Turner enlists some amazing emcees and producers on this release such as Guilty Simpson (Stones Throw), Brother Ali (Rhymesayers), Casual (Hieroglyphics), Ea-Ski, Jake One (G-Unit/Tuxedo) and Boom Bap Project (Rhymesayers).
The first single/video “Obsession” was produced by multi-instrumentalist, G-Koop (Bad and Bougie, I Got The Keys) was released in June to much positive acclaim, youtube views and feedback. The follow up single featuring Brother Ali, “High Enough” ( also produced by G-Koop) is a provocative, cut and dry response to gentrification, classism and racism, over driving piano and heavy fuzzed out bass. There is a strong “west coast” presence on this album musically. This album is for people who truly enjoy emcees who are honest songwriters and quality, world class beats.
