Brief Summery: Sitting here and writing a description for Sojourn’s first official solo album gives me a crazy good feeling. As a label owner, there is a level of excitement, familiarity and newness happening for me all at once. It’s a trilogy of emotions! I feel excited to be part of something so significant. Sojourn is a veteran among veterans, which may come as a surprise to some listeners but I believe that Sojourn has the type of talent that could have made him a stand out or potential legend during any bubbling era of Hip-hop history if given the right opportunity. The familiarity is also a good feeling for me. Everything from the Brokin nglish artwork to the production roster reminds me of what made “Hiphop IS Music” so fresh during the first couple years of the label. The posse cuts featuring familiar faces from the HHIM roster also brings a smile to my face. The “newness” is the cherry on top. The release of Sojourn’s album “Sojournalism: The Summer Articles” marks a new chapter in Hiphop IS Music history. The lead single sends the message loud and clear – “let us get back to what we call Hiphop”. It’s what we do!!! We’ve been on hiatus for a couple years, rebuilding and making adjustments. We’ve learned how to survive in this harsh industry climate and our accumulated experiences birthed a sense of confidence and humility to push forward with boldness. Partnering with an artist like Sojourn who we greatly respect and admire makes it all the more rewarding. There is far more to be said about the life and times of Sojourn, but you should listen to his audible journal first, and maybe read a few interviews.
Features production and appearances by Oh No, PNS of the Molemen, S1 of Strange Fruit Project, Future Shock, Dert, BlameOne, Braille, Theory Hazit, Surreal, Sivion and more.
