Good looks. Definitely some dope songs on here after a quick skip through. The EQ on the vocals sounds really dull on a lot of the songs. I think it was intentional sound he was going for but Iím not feeling it.

Focus shared this link to apple music:
https://music.apple.com/us/album/focus-presents-the-new-norml/1537513892
You can atleast get redirected to iTunes if you click the link below the tracklist.

I'm halfway through now btw, the album sounds good.

that song is from 2006. his name was Jay Life that day and the song was featuring gage money and bishop lamont.

14 years later he mixed the song properly, produced a second part and let J.Sol do his own thing about black lives matter issue.

really great song. definately an Aftermath Era.

I know it's kinda off-topic but I'm looking for all of Focus...'s instrumental projects after 2010. He released 3 volumes of his "aNALOG iN a dIGITAL wORLD" beat tapes and there's also another one called "For No Reason..." + I wouldn't mind a instrumental version of his new album either :D
