Abstract Mindstate—the Chicago rap duo of E.P. da Hellcat and Olskool Ice-Gre—have announced a new album that’ll be released via Kanye West’s YZY SND on August 6. The album, Dreams Still Inspire, is billed as the first YZY SND release. West produced the album and also guests on the record’s penultimate entry “The Brenda Song.” Check out the first single “A Wise Tale,” as well as a video about Abstract Mindstate, below.
Abstract Mindstate formed at the turn of the century and released just one album, 2001’s We Paid Let Us In!, before disbanding in 2005. Guests on the duo’s comeback record include model, actor, and influencer Luka Sabbat and frequent Kanye West collaborator Tony Williams.
This Friday, July 23, Kanye West is releasing his own album Donda via G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam.
