Super dope producer and emcee Slot-A recently released his debut album The Transition. A 10 track collection of authentic hip hop sounds parallel to those fans of Madlib and Dilla. The Transition features guests Neak, Add-2, Sincerely Yours and more. It’s a really great listen especially for those looking for something that’s polar opposite of what’s getting air play on commercial radio. We’ll be talking about the album tonight on Vocalo’s Music Vox program!
