This is the first release for the four-time Stellar award winner on his new co-founded entertainment company, Mixed Bag Entertainment. Da Truth’s new imprint focuses on music, television and films, has inked an exclusive distribution deal with Entertainment One. Grammy award winner, J.R., will produce the album.
“I originally planned to step away from music until 2015 to focus on Mixed Bag Entertainment, but after almost a year of watching and observing the culture, I realized that I had a few more things that I wanted to share,” shares Da’ T.R.U.T.H. “What started as a 3-5 song EP, became a full length album. This record is fun – it’s experimental, gritty and engaging, and having my longtime friend help me to shape the project makes it that much more enjoyable.”
