Today after much anticipation finally DC emcee EARLY releases his brand new album, HIGH NOON. Sometimes you have to leave home, and what your familiar with, to actually find out who you are. EARLY finds himself on that journey when he decides to leave the DMV, and embark on a trip to Hollywood. From the cinematic beginning feel of the self titled track “HIGH NOON”, EARLY quickly lets you know that your in for a chaotic ride. The beat selection is carefully chose to bring you right in the scene. The swank bar lounge vibe on “Silverlake Blues”, to the uplifting feel of “Paid Dues” make you feel as if your right next to EARLY during that moment. EARLY changes his tone while he addresses different people from his past on, “No Place Like Home”. Every track on HIGH NOON is a part of the equation that makes this concept album very memorable.
