Constellation

Well for the last 2 months Kwin MD (above) aka: Greenguy or McKoman Doni & Omega Redd (pictured in the previous post) have been working on the new album they plan on releasing sometime soon called "Andromeda". The concept involved the idea that this is the closest galaxy able to be seen with the naked eye. This is because, Musically, the metaphor of Andromeda being the closest visit galaxy to be seen from earth with out a telescope can be compared to where we are going with the music. We are bringing a whole new sound, far from our normal style but not too far away that you need a telescope to peep the style.

Today, (Me Greenguy) I read about 15 books about astronomy. (Not cover to cover) I was researching the Andromeda Galaxy. You see the title of this post right. Andromeda is not a Galaxy. Andromeda is a Constellation. Pisces is a Constellation, Libra, Virgo, and Aries are Constellations. M31 is a Galaxy.

M31 is short for Messier 31. There is mad Messier Galaxies. So many Messiers, they all are called M-this & M That....Like to give more Detail on Andromeda as a Constellation:

There are 6 Galaxies or more in Andromeda. M31, M110, M32, 7640, 891, & 404....

M31 must be referred to by a whole lot of cats as Andromeda. It's a Galaxy in Andromeda.
M31 is the Galaxy in Andromeda which people can see from the surface of the Earth without a telescope. They say M31 is like Milky Way's Twin.

There are 2 stars in M31. I am gonna try to find a book written by Paul Hodge called "Atlas of the Andromeda Galaxy".

He wrote a book & called this jon a galaxy. One of the 15 books I was reading called it a Constellation. Now I'm all F'd Up. I thought it was a Galaxy all along, this cat Paul Hodge calls it a Galaxy but the last book I read called it a Constellation.

I was lookin for names of planets in Andromeda, to use in lyrics & skits & intros & shit. But after reading almost every source a college library has on this, all I can say is, at this point, the damn Galaxy or Constellation or whatever is just too far away for them to name any planets on it.

After Pluto, (And I know about this new debate on Pluto), I think they gave up on namin planets, all they have is star names. The Stars have names like Hotel Rooms or Dorms or Apartment #'s.... Like this one in Andromeda, must be in the projects, C410. That's the name of a star in Andromeda.

The Center of the constellation of Andromeda culminates at Midnight on September 18th every year.

Now the Concept of this album is told. I am posting most of this now because I might refer to it later & here I can't lose it, this paper, I could lose.

Me & Omega Redd talked about a Mix Tape Album to come out before "Andromeda" called S.O.A.z/Common Ground Present: "The Milky Way" and put out at least one new song for the "Milky Way" make a Intro & a Outro track on there explaining "Andromeda" & "The Milky Way" and it will in Music (through your listening & imagination) take you from Earth to M31.

"The Milky Way" will give yall what we took back on "Triple 2". We promised yall when we took "Triple 2" off the market we'd bring that music back in a more new & improved format. "The Milky Way" is gonna be the replacement for that. Songs that were on that album might show up on the "Milky Way" and we will have "The Getaway" on there. We want to give yall for one last time a feeling of what The S.O.A.z & Common Ground were like (our usual style) before we go out to M31 on a spaceship.

So after "The Milky Way" album is released, we will have to travel 2.2 Million Light Years Away for the next album of "Andromeda". That's why they didn't name any planets there. It takes a long ass time for the light from those stars to get here. 168 million miles per second is how fast the light has to travel for us to see it here on Earth. George's Star aka Uranis & Neptune wheren't even named until just recently. Within the last 400 years or so. Pluto wasn't named until 1800 somethin... So All I needed to know to end my search on the name of a Planet there was that Pluto wasn't named until that time frame & Pluto is So many "Miles" away. They didn't find it until then (and by accident). That is Miles. Andromeda is 2.2 Million Light Years. Million Light Years is something much more far away then Miles. They can't see Planets that far (as far as I could research). They can find Stars. There are 300 Billion Stars in Andromeda. C410 is one of them.

The Milky Way Galaxy has 100 Billion Stars & is 80,000 Light Years Wide.

So for The S.O.A.z to travel through 2.2 Million Light Years, we gotta take our time with the Math & Science on this na mean, we don't wanna put the laser beam on all wrong & end up cookin ourselves on the way there. We are Gonna travel far & wide on this.

With reality in mind, we are gonna travel far & wide. We plan on visiting Richmond Va to collab with Metaphysik & also traveling to California to collab with Indecent & Krypto. The "Andromeda" album might have more on it as well. We hope to surprise yall.

The Homie in New Hampshire Ziplok might also add some guest appearances. There so much more in store, I want to leave the rest secret.

We still haven't recorded the Bonus Track (#23) for "Golden Land" yet. We will have so much new music for yall very soon the whole thing would have gotten close to ready (As far as those Bonus Tracks & "The Milky Way") but our main Studio we like going to M.A.U. Computer was crashin on us the other day after we had a few vocal tracks layed down. We will surprise yall.

The May 2008 S.O.A.z Flavor of the Month supposed to been went up on Garageband but, the internet & me aint been find time for each other much these days, it's only the what 7th? I got it for yall, I'm thinking about changing to a differant song instead of the scheduled one though. The only thing that keeps me thinkin to put this on & not change it was that before Va'Les got locked up he kept naggin me about making this song a Flavor of the Month. Like every time I saw Va'Les we would talk about songs we'd make a Flavor of the Month & he would always say this was one he wanted as a S.O.A.z Flave. This was his first choice everytime. If I change it, & this song aint a S.O.A.z Flave by the time he gets out of the bin, he's gonna be heated. So I guess I should just make this a S.O.A.z flave now & stop playin before he gets out. Va'Les is my man I'm just messin around.

Saturday May 3rd, 2008

Today, Omega Redd was supposed to do the studio session by himself. Nothing went according to plan. This picture is of Omega Redd in West Philly, in a alley behind M.A.U. studios. Kwin MD ended up wakin up early and chose to meet up with Redd & record. Reese from M.A.U. was runnin late so, Kwin MD & Redd was chillin back here for a while. When Reese got there we started recording a potential song that could be #23 on "Golden Land" as a Bonus Track, or a song for "Milky way" or a song for "Andromeda". This song "You'll get Knocked" was getting started, a few tracks were layed & the computer just kept crashin.

So this visit wasn't all for nothin, Kwin uploaded 3 beats he got from a producer named Westbound and Reese made Redd a CD of them 3. We gave Reese an update on Va'Les and his situation. Reese gave Kwin a Soundcard and a copy of Fruitie Loops which in Return Kwin threw him a couple dollars. Kwin's homie in Richmond, Magic, wants to start makin beats, that software was mainly for him. Kwin had to leave for the graveyard shift. Reese said that he's gonna fix this problem before the next time we go over there. It was sort of a productive day.

Redd made a phone blog post to tha hood/bbs "VOICE OF THA HOOD" & Redd now has the phone # so he can post phone blogs in here whenever...

H.A.C.

"HerbanAgriCulture"

This was the final album to be released on that old version of mp3.com (which no longer exists).

This album was the first Kwin MD album ever to have featuring appearances by Va'Les, Sal Graci, & Omega Redd.

Recorded between 2002-2003.

This was sn online only release.

Shortly after the H.A.C. album came out, mp3.com sold the site to current owners.
Then the site became more focused on signed artists and less helpfull to underground atists.
That was when Audiostreet, Imeem, and sites like Soundclick began to get much more bigger.

This album had "Throw Down Remix", "Yall Still Asleep", "Enemies Close", and a few other Kwin MD street bangers.

Some of this material ended up on the "Boilamaker Sippah" album. Which basically took songs from every discontinued album since "The Nutcrackka" and formed a whole album from 2001-2005 material.

"H.A.C." was centered on the Grimey aspect of Rap. It had excepts from songs Champain & Kwin did back in 1999 with Trig & Kriminal along with Godfather Geek & Lost Elements: Bash & Golden Child. Music made in Virginia Beach Lake Edwards area at 3rd Eye studio. Music made in Germantown, Splash City. All mixed in a new format by Kwin using Cakewalk software and added FX and Addlibs on the Roland 880 EX.

When Mp3 closed down, this album, "Never Done" volumes 1 & 2, and "The Nutcrackka" were some of the albums that were discontinued. AFTER MP3 WENT DOWN ONLY "STEP INTO MY OFFICE..." WAS AROUND ONLINE. So the "Boilahmaker Sippah" took songs from everything that got discontinued (by default) and added a few new songs, then you had the album which appeared to be a "2nd album".

"Forest Fire" (which was shown in a post before the making of series began) was also a song on "H.A.C."...

The "Triple 2" album is very similar to "H.A.C."....

This whole 1990's style that come across as "Rap" more so then "Hip Hop" has been the style from the start (in Kwin's case 1999). The 2 albums just mentioned "H.A.C." & "Triple 2" are both albums that included "Forest Fire" both are grimey RAP albums and there is nothing mainstream or commercial about them.

"Andromeda" is in the studio tomorro 5-3-08 and Omega Redd is starting it off like how we did "Pedals". Read the making of "Pedals". Redd is seting the table. We aint just all about this Rap thing. We grow every day.
