In the immortal words of Rakim, ‘it’s been a long time…’. After nearly 3 years, one of the longest breaks in between projects I’ve ever taken, comes the release of A Memoir Called Noir, the latest self-written and self-produced output from Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice. This time around the beats are a bit darker, and the lyrics are more forthright and honest than usual. Dynamite verbal assists are included from Kazee Queen and BERNICHUS. Thanks to the good homey at Frownland Records, this album (and all of my other albums) are available on every digital streaming/storefront service your little heart could desire, so don’t sleep on the project. For those about to support, we salute you.
