As Rhymefest prepares to unleash his new album, El Che, on June 8th, the MC’s new label, dN|Be Entertainment, has just announced that a limited quantity of red cassettes will be released for the album.
Dubbed the Red Tape, the cassette will feature all 16 tracks from Rhymefest’s long awaited sophomore effort. Motivated by classic LPs from hip-hop’s “golden era,” ‘Fest and his label says that the red cassettes are necessary to bridge the gap between hip-hop’s heyday and El Che.
In addition to the collector’s edition red tape, a transparent, prison-safe cassette will also be released by the label.
Realizing that many revolutionaries are unfortunately locked behind bars, Rhymefest hopes to touch the lives of society’s sometimes forgotten soldiers with El Che. The clear cassettes will feature no screws and are approved for usage by inmates in most prisons.
The Red Tape and the clear prison cassette will be offered exclusively through the interactive website, ElCheTheMovement.com.
Pre-orders for the cassette, CD, and digital versions of the album are currently available on the site.
