Advocate Of is the latest offering from Rose City emcee Qualmes (AKA The Black Gringo), a compilation drawn from his 2013 "Direct Deposit" series.
From the man himself:
"While we are all here on God's green earth to serve a purpose, it is inevitable that we must seek out our greater selves by embellishing our own given attributes by application. Advocate Of is a depiction of this."
The 16-track tape was inspired by his late father's battle with multiple myeloma and a disturbing nine-month relationship, amongst other things. It features guest appearances from Thurz, G.o.D Jewels, Cashmere D and Arianah Harville, with production from Drumma Drama (Yo Gotti, Gucci Mane, Future), Cam (Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa), Ro Blvd (Freeway), Danny Dee (Isaiah Rashad), SoundsbyCOOP (Drake, Lil Durk) and Tony Issac.
Advocate Of is brought to you by the EAE (Exceeding All Expectations) brand, of which Qualmes is a part. Visit his official site to hear the rest of his "Direct Deposit" collection, and expect new material on the 15th of every month throughout 2014.
