Less than a year has passed since Massachusetts rapper Termanology dropped his debut album, Politics As Usual, and he is now on the verge of continuing his mixtape series of Hood Politics with volume 6.
Entitled, Time Machine, the next installment in the series is expected to be dropping Sept. 22 through his own label, ST. Records. The actual material of his forthcoming project will lie in between an album and a mixtape which is evident from the artists and producers that will be helping in crafting his latest.
On the production side, the rapper will continue to lace tracks with the sounds of DJ Premier, The Alchemist, Don Cannon, Large Professor, Pete Rock and Statik Selektah. Features will include Sheek Louch, Lil Fame, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5’9, Crooked I and Consequence.
Since the release of his debut album, Termanology has been busy promoting on the road and has been touring heavily. He has opened up for Method Man and Redman on the Still High Tour and had headlined his own European tour in 2009. Touring for Time Machine will be done in Europe from Aug. 20th to Sept. 6 and he will be accompanied by M.O.P., Reks and Statik Selektah. August will also see the rapper headlining at the Hip-Hop kemp festival in the Czech Republic with Method Man, Lady Sovereign Devin The Dude along with many others.
The half-white, half-Puerto Rican rapper has been heavy in the underground scene as well as the mixtape circuit. The Hood Politics series has received critical acclaim and Term has worked with lyricists such as Freeway, Saigon, Cassidy, Papoose, Sheek Louch, Styles P and countless others. He has shown his support to Detroit producer J Dilla when he released the mixtape If Heaven Was A Mile Away as a tribute to the fallen producer. He has also shown appreciation for his state of MA as he released a 15-minute track entitled “Mass-As-A-Nation” featuring a countless amount of rappers from the state that reps the Red Sox, New England Patriots and the Boston Celtics.
