Like how Saigon & Statik Selektah did in "ALL IN A DAY'S WORK" project?
its possible to take the art of making music seriously without taking yourself seriously

perhaps the tille of the thread is misleading. this is not about doing an ablum in 24hours (yes thats what they'll be doing) but about more than that. Im just searching to find of I have any press release mail so i can post it here. be back if i find one.

Hai, Im a fan of perfection(or chasing it that is)....an album dont in 24 hours is dumb in my eyes...why rush??? what is you tryna prove???

With 9th and Sky it was a spur of the moment thing, they was chilling in the studio and 9th was playing beats and Sky just starting writing and BAM! (I read about it lol)....now, correct if Im wrong but, yal planning to do this???

Kool Savas, Illmatic, Katch & DJ Release did it in Germany, and it was actually a nice album.

The group project was called 'Freunde der Sonne' (Friends of the Sun), and the album was called 'Nur Noch 24 Stunden' (Only 24 hours left),

I think Edan did a similar thing once, where he recorded an album in a week, just to turn the pressure up. I wouldn't discount this album, sometimes it's better to not take all day with something! (pun intended) badoom-boom!
