Since yesterday’s announcement, there has been a lot of questions about the origin of Blueprint’s new Vigilante Genesis project (produced by Aesop Rock) that’s due out May 27th on Weightless Recordings. Some of these initial questions regarding the projects inspiration and origin were answered on this week’s episode of Blueprint and Illogic’s podcast Super Duty Tough Work.

“Radio-inactive” is the first official single from the forthcoming Blueprint album Adventures in Counter-Culture, to be released March 1st, 2011.
Shot, edited, & directed by Bangland Media
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.
