Kanye West + Malik Yusef Project features Boston's Violet Nine

DATELINE - BOSTON :: After a brief hiatus, Boston's Violet Nine has come roaring back, and this time they appear with legendary spoken word artist Malik Yusef and iconic rapper Kanye West on the first independent release from West’s own label (G.O.O.D Music Recordings). The album, aptly, is titled “G.O.O.D Morning, G.O.O.D Night."

In it's review of the album, BBC called So Pop U Layer (the Violet Nine contribution on the album); "unexpectedly brilliant." [full album review by the BBC's Sophie Bruce.]
