Internationally vetted producer Configa, whose catalog of music successfully extends into the U.S, releases an 11-track project titled ‘The ConfigHas Crates’ available on Bandcamp. The album, with HaStyle on the mic also features Hip Hop legends and heavyweights including Sadat X, Rah Digga, Nine, Wordsworth, El Da Sensei, Prince Po, and Chino XL.
Configa is no amateur when it comes to top-scale production and he’s backed by the likes of such music icons as SPEECH from Arrested Development. ‘The ConfigHas Crates’ is no exception to his mastered skill set and can be noted as yet another timeless classic under his belt.
“This is a must-have for all fans of true-school, rugged, boom-bap, and lyrical style Hip Hop”, Configa unequivocally sums up the album. However, as a modest professional he leaves out his superior flex and flawless ability to mix classic Hip Hop cadences with diversified instrumental tones. The result, immense refills on an epically proportioned dose of earmilk.

DALLAS, TEXAS – C.J. Watson’s third solo studio album, “CHRIS” starts off 2021 with a breath of fresh air. Singles like “Keep A Weapon” featuring Hip-Hop legend Raekwon of the critically acclaimed group Wu-Tang Clan, shows that C.J. Watson isn’t messing around in this 24 track, double-sided LP.
Chris ‘C.J.’ Watson says, “I want to make Hip-Hop, not rap music. […] thought provoking, with a message, fun, and lyrical.” C.J. Watson’s passion for the genre is on full display as we journey through storytelling, heavy bass, and different themes of C.J. Watson’s life experiences. “I’m a concept rapper, not a conscious rapper,” explains C.J. Watson when discussing songs like The Messiah and Alpha Male, both produced by Poetic Killa of Boston, Mass.
The Dallas, Texas emcee connected with a few hometown heros to bring his vision to life including Rakim Al-Jabbaar, Jayson Lyric & Kenny Smith. “I recorded like 42 songs while on lockdown during the quarantine. Garshar and I picked the best ones, and the ones that we thought would fit together,” C.J. Watson says in reference to composer/production management Garshar ‘Songbird’ Christopher. The CHRIS album is also co-executive produced by James ‘J. Waiters’ Monticue and Randy D. James.
