Not glimpsed in the Booth since last summer, when he brought us the reader-acclaimed Overdose, e.d.g.e. makes his triumphant returns to our pages with The First 48, leak numero uno off his next mixtape. Titled after the popular A&E crime documentary series, the record finds The Jake serving up a deceiptively mellow, soul-sampled instrumental backdrop as the Vancouver rhymesayer delivers a cautionary tale regarding the dangers of life on the wrong side of the law. Presented by TheMadBloggers.com, The9Elements.com and FlyDefinition.com, e.d.g.e.‘s Destroy & Rebuild tape will be dropping sometime prior to Business & Penwork, his forthcoming collaborative album with Danny Diggs. Keep it locked for further details on both projects.
