Back in the late nineties/early 2000s, the Chicago rap scene hadn’t yet taken the world by storm, but were gonna, and one of the essential groups in the game was Abstract Mindstate. Olskool Ice-Gre and E.P. da Hellcat were the (still) rare male-female rap duo, and if they never hit it big and broke up in 2005, they inspired tons of other artists.
Such as the one-and-only Kanye West, who just announced that the first release on his Yeezy Sound label will be their reunion with Dreams Still Inspire, out August 6th and produced by West himself. There’s also a new documentary, We Paid Let Us In! – check out the trailer below.
