Critically acclaimed mc/producer and Soul Position frontman Blueprint, returns with his highly anticipated sophomore solo release Adventures in Counter-Culture. Experimenting with synths, keyboards, and drum machines, Adventures in Counter-Culture touches on Blueprint’s cynicism with the world, his disdain for pop culture, the state of politics and an apathetic, uninspired society. The album encompasses every facet of music Blueprint knows. It blurs genre lines and connects his hip hop pedigree with his early days in the church choir, to the R&B bands he was a part of in high school, to his new found interest in rock and electronic music.

After a five year musical journey, Blueprint has emerged with his greatest effort to date. A culmination of self discovery and societal critique, Adventures in Counter-Culture is just that. The adventure begins March 1st, 2011.

Blueprint “Pain” Lyrics

“Pain” from Blueprint Who EP

I don’t let the drums dictate the way what I spit lay
or if the rhythm of it’s what makes it great
I listen to it, then when I hit play
my mind drift into a place 50 years away
I see what would’ve been if i let the pen lay
the Old Me got so many things to say
But nobody listens cause his beard is gray
So he tells me to get back here and seize the day
See, I don’t need peace and quiet
I really don’t like it, it really aint the way
Cool concept,
but hardly inspiring when peace is the only thing you see every day
Now I don’t think we need riots
or all types of violence for things to be ok
But in terms of environment, we need something to fight against
cause most great art can’t exist without pain Continue Reading →

New Blueprint interview on ClapCowards.com

New interview posted today on Clapcowards.com. Peep the exerpt:

1. At what point did you realize music was what you wanted to do? I’m not sure if there was ever really a conscious decision about wanting to do music forever or anything like that. I come from a musical family and church, so music was always a part of my life in one way or another. When I started actually releasing music in the form of Greenhouse cassette tapes it was really only because I felt like we had to have something for sale before we actually played a show. At the time, I never really thought we would make any significant money off of it and I definitely never thought it would end up being a career for me. I just kind of went with the flow.
