It’s an honor to team up with my brethren and one of the dopest crews in music, The Lessondary, on their new mixtape Never 2ndary. The crew consists of Tanya Morgan (Donwill & Von Pea), Ilyas, Che Grand, Elucid, Jermiside, Brickbeats, Aeon & Rob Cave fka Spec Boogie and is one of the deepest out. Maybe you’ve caught them on each other’s projects over the years or maybe you’ve seen me post something about the crew over the years, but right now, sit back and get familiar with The Lessondary crew before they drop their long-awaited Ahead Of Schedule album on 6/24/16 via HipNott Records.

Our good friend out in Brooklyn and frequent Solution guest, Che Grand, recorded us this ridiculous Solution anthem last year (in fact, a shorter, alternate version appeared on Che Grand & DJ Low Key – The Fixtape Too). It features him MURDERING a futuristic Madlib joint and talking about his favorite party. Download it for free below to get a preview of the heat we’re bringing for The Solution Tape #2 and make sure to get up on Che Grand’s music if you’re not already.

To get ready for the 4th Anniversary of the Solution on Friday, Feb. 4th, we’re checking in with some of our favorite regulars and people around Denver to hear what their favorite moments from the party have been. Here’s favorites from writer Ru Johnson, Ill Seven of Isolated Generation, Denver hip hop legend Big Styles fka Styles N’ Fashion and nationally renowned artist Dunn the Signtologist; stay tuned for more classic memories leading up to the party on 2/4.
Ru Johnson’s top 3 Solution moments:
1. One of my first times at The Solution (at the Buddha) one of the deejays played “Cher Chez La Ghost” and there were literally 20 of us singing and rapping at the top of our lungs. And, I’m pretty sure was a dance-off between Little Wing and some random guy in a vest. We banged on walls and the stage and danced like there was no tomorrow.
2. Pretty recently at the 3014 location, Low Key effectively slayed our hip-hop souls with the addition of some Jay Electronica “Exhibit C” into the playlist. Looking over at several cats from the scene completely jammin out, I realized The Solution is the ONLY Friday night party that speaks to the hip-hop purist in me.
3. It was a freezing Friday eve when the guys were still rocking at Funky Buddha. I was rolling deep with the homegirls and we decided to “last call” it at The Solution. Sounds Supreme dropped “Soldier of Love” (this was right when the song came out) and the vibe was so perfect, I could have been at a basement party in Brooklyn.
