The bad news: Gemstones’ new album, Blind Elephant was supposed to drop today. But Gem himself found out the news within the last week that the album is now pushed back to May 5th. So we’ll have to wait a little longer…
The good news: you can pre-order the album on iTunes (so it looks like that’s it for push-backs) AND enjoy a sick new 2 minute a cappella called “New World” up above.
“New World” will act as track 05 on the 12 track opus and may or may not feature production on the upcoming album version. No matter because, per usual, Gemstones delivers a hard-hitting message with a minute and a half of break-neck raps. He follows that up with some soulful singing about, well, not selling your soul. I love it as Gem hits the right notes as always. For as talented a rapper as Gemstones is, I’ve always considered him as one of the best true singers in the game too. “New World” only adds to the resume. Watch above!
