Other than him working with MF DOOM, has anyone heard his individual works?

He seems like one of the most best best yet also underrated MCs out there. Dwight Spitz, Art for Sale, pretty good LPs. Anyone else?

this board has been around for a while. Him, Flying Lotus, Jneiro Jarel and even Oddisee have all been thoroughly discussed. Please to enjoyment of board searching. Your pleasure happens now with good music for your ear drums!

Dwight Spitz is one of my favorite albums.

All of his albums are good, in my opinion.

And I thought L7 was crazy.

I hope he puts out something new soon. I was waiting for him to collab with Jneiro Jarel. Not sure if they're still planning anything.

I also remember something about him doing a jazz album...?

Count is the man, criminally slept on outside of such areas like the STMB, dude has super dope production and funky flows.

Aside from a few songs here and there I haven't liked much from him since Begborrowsteel, and I've listened to every release. Although that Promises album posted above has some nice production/instrumentals from duke.

Sorry to bump this from the grave but did anyone get the repress of dwight Spitz? I had been looking for that for a long time. It was overpriced but I got it and the cassette version for $20. Very happy.

I was intrigued w/ the vinyl bonus tracks until I saw they were from BBS. I have the og Dwight Spitz vinyl and BBS so I passed. Staying away from the cassette fad...

I don't care about the cassette fad either but I ordered within the first 300 to get it. I don't have a cassette player. Anyway I didn't have the vinyl, Very happy to get that. Count bass d is one of my favorites so I'm trying to get most of what has been pressed.

Tempted to pull the trigger on the Dwight Spitz reissue. Love vinyl editions and all but collecting can sure get expensive. Still money well spent I suppose . . . one could have other, actually damaging, vices.

Edit: Actually met him along w/ Blueprint at Propaganda (a Lake Worth, FL venue) some time in 2014 I believe. Didn't know anything about him other than the DOOM feature prior to the show. He was cool. All more the reason to support the reissue, presumably putting some cash in his pockets.

yeah i got a copy of the original, i remember it took a long time posted up on discogs/ebay to find a decently priced copy a few years ago. More people should know this album so i guess it's a good thing it got repressed. 20 bucks aint bad compared to the usual 60-80 for an original. I've also got Act Your Waist Size, but yeah this is (unfortunately) still his best album, a definite under appreciated classic.

Copped the reissue. Great mastering and pressing. Even bumped the cassette in the car and it sounds awesome. Very happy!

I got the cassette instead of vinyl even though I think $20 is a good price. For some reason I've been getting an itching for old cassette tapes.

The Rapper with the most chords releases his first vocal album in five years. Count Bass D's latest effort, 'Instantly New' is just that - a fresh approach to the sound he's been shaping for the past 2 decades - paired with a distinct presentation.

Embracing his gospel roots, Instantly New showcases the ability of the producer-songwriter to meld r&b, soul, funk & rap to craft hiphop hymns. Consider it modern day folk music for everyone from the pews to the bar stools.

Instantly New is now available for download & will be available on double cassette (w/ instrumentals) via ThrashFlow.com on 3/31.

Always ahead of the curve (even his own) Count Bass D will be on a US tour performing his hits both Instantly New and old from March 18th - May 28th. Come see what the fuss is about!

Instantly New (CountBassD.com, Spring 2016) is the first Count Bass D vocal album since 2011’s Mic & Ike. His latest effort lives up to it’s name with universal lyrics about who he is as a result of what he has been through, seen and learned. All music is played and programmed with no samples. Instantly New is Count with a virtuosity previously unseen by a rap artist.

@bamajoe, I'm about to listen to it.

If you've heard it, out of all of the albums he's done before, what does it sound most like? Thanks

EDIT: LOL, this sounds fairly unique.

listen to 1:43:42-1:44:44

This is from a 2015 interview that is over a year old now. If I understand him correctly he seems to be going in a new/different direction musically.
