That’s right people! RICO aka TASH is back with a brand new album and a tour! Tha Alkaholiks and Likwit Crew member is back after a solo album hiatus of nearly six years with a new LP, “Publicity Stunt.”
Last time Tash dropped an album it was the 2009 project “Control Freek” – featuring the single “New Bikini” – which was a decade since his acclaimed classic debut “Rap Life” album.
He recently signed with Paper Chase Entertainment/Winner’s Circle Distribution to have his work distributed through the Empire Distribution network and on March 3rd 2015 will release “Publicity Stunt” featuring Dr. Dre, Xzibit, King Tee, J-Ro, Beatnuts, E-Swift, Da Beatminerz, Rah Digga, Busta Rhymes, Dilated Peoples, Diamond D, Tony Touch, Defari, Q-Tip, Mos Def, Ras Kass, Classified, J-Wells, CeeLo Green, Ice-T, Feddie Demarco and more.
You can pre-order the album now via Amazon and Google Music – but to give you a flavour of the project Tash and his team have given DubCNN two exclusive new records for you to stream!
You can already peep one of the tracks that orignally dropped in 2013 – the Dr. Dre produced “Louis XIII” with Xzibit, King Tee and J-Ro – but we can also bring you the cut “Smoking & Drinking” and Da Beatminerz and Rah Digga assisted “Somethin.”
Give them a spin below and then check out the tracklist – and don’t miss the details of Tash’s supporting tour further down the page!
