A-Villa “Carry On Tradition” [Album Stream]


Adrian “A-Villa” Villagomez earlier this week delivered his labor of love and a project he worked relentlessly on for the last four years to perfect. A-Villa’s first and last project “Carry On Tradition” over exceeds any expectation you may have of ‘traditional Chicago Hip-Hop’ by crafting a brilliant project that encompasses his passion for music and bringing people together as he is able to assemble a fantasy draft like lineup of artists that blends different generations of Hip-Hop artists to a classic album that is now A-Villa’s debut project.

Earlier this week I was able to attend the listening party for “Carry On Tradition” and I can honestly say that the project as a whole is a classic. It is a cohesive project from beginning to end and cinematic in nature as well as we get glimpses of various forms of pop culture blended within this project as we transition from song to song.

This is a project for EVERYBODY. From the heavy conscious Hip-Hop Heads to anyone wanting a basic understanding of the who’s who of older generation emcees and today’s youth that Carry On Tradition. For purists you may also be able to purchase a Vinyl as well as a CD copy that includes a track not available on the iTunes version that features Martin $ky, Chance The Rapper, Michael Christmas, and MC Tree G.

The world has been lending its ears to this project as A-Villa continues to gain support from artists he grew up listening to. For those that still don’t understand, Adrian “A-Villa” Villagomez has been able to accomplish something that most Hip-Hop fans like us are never able to accomplish and that is to be a regular joe, a vice president at a bank by day that and skilled beat maker by night that is pursuing a dream that is now coming to fruition.

Support the homie A-Villa and cop the CD, Vinyl, or iTunes version.
