Stro Elliot has had a hell of a year. Whether it was the multiple Boiler Room sets, the Beats1/Soulection radio show, producing for Phonte and Eric Roberson, working with The Roots on their upcoming album, and performing with the Wu-Tang Clan at The Roots Picnic in NYC, to being featured on the highly acclaimed Hamilton mixtape, smashing Mass Appeal’s Rhythm Roulette, and turning the heads of some of the illest minds in music.
Constantly at Jazzy Jeff’s incredible Playlist Retreat, Stro Elliot had best be on your radar now if he wasn’t already. Stro is not new to this. In fact, some of the beats on this album are damn near 10 years old. And those 10 damn near 10 year old beats kick most of 2016’s contemporary Hip Hop in the ass.
Producing heat for his group The Procussions for years, among others, this album finds Stro taking his sound on the road, literally and figuratively. Today, December 16th marks the release date for Stro Elliot’s debut LP, brought to you by Street Corner Music. It’s been a long time coming. That time is now.
