image

Finally, Rapper + Poet announce the release date to their new collaboration  II: A Noir Romance, which is October 22nd, 2014. It was announced via Rapper’s Instagram with a shot of the project playing from his phone (which is probably the cover, similar to their first pairing). The wait is coming to an end, and on the 22nd we’ll have an exclusive stream of the project on our site. Stay tuned!

UPDATE (10/20/14): We got an advance listen to II: A Noir Romance, and here’s our first impression of the project.

NEWS: Rapper + Poet Announce Title/Tracklist to New Project

image
After months of previews, we get a title for Rapper + Poet’s new project, which is II: A Noir Romance. In addition to the name, we get the official tracklist (appropriately featuring two tracks), which confirms our suspension of the captions to each preview being song titles. We’re unsure of what to expect from the noir aspect of the project, but it does add context to the initial captions being translated in French. A release date is still yet to be announced, but after this unveiling, something has to be arriving soon.

VIDEO: Rapper + Poet (Preview #3)

image
The abstract previews from Rapper + Poet continue with a new snippet posted via Rapper’s (J. Smith) Instagram. In this clip, a seductive and distorted keyboard flows behind a smoky red visual illuminating the duo’s name. The caption reads, “Tache de sang Chimie”, which is another French translation for Bloodstain Chemistry. It is important to note that this caption shares the title to an older J. Smith song of the same name from his 2006 album, The Black & White Album. We’re convinced these captions are the titles to each preview. However, until an announcement about the release date arrives we’ll just have to wait patiently for more details.

UPDATE (9/24/14): In a post via Poet’s (Whosain?!) Instagram, we get a hint that something is coming from the duo next month!
