Diggin' the Dirt

The Latest Greatest, 2/6/11

Brand new album from West coast O.G Joe Dub's group Contra Band on the way, entitled "Praise Dirt." Contra Band consists of Joe Dub on the rhymes, AC75 (a.k.a Alex75) on the beats, and DJ Marz handling the cuts. No official release date or track list for this yet, but the album is said to feature West coast heavy weights like Hugh EMC, Ellay Khule, Eddie K and even a West Coast Workforce reunion. As if that didn't sound appetizing enough, the awesome cover artwork pictured above was handled by none other than Pedro Bell of Parliament/Funkadelic fame! Joe Dub's been holding it down for years and has rarely disappointed, so I'm really looking forward to this. No official leaks from it yet, but you can listen to a track called "Electronic World" off of a 7" that Contra Band put out last year below. The song features some interesting about the age of Information Technology, and a guest spot from none other than Devin the Dude:
