Fresh off of his Sandwich Shop collaboration with fellow Tanya Morgan member Donwill, Von Pea has been keeping himself busy with his own solo project, preparing Pea’s Gotta Have It, slated for release September 2010. In order to whet the appetites of awaiting fans, Von Pea releases his free mixtape today, So Motivational: The Most Skullduggery of Mixtapes.
Consisting of a selection of new solo tracks and a host of current and past collaborations featuring talented artists like Trackademicks, XV, Che Grand, The Lessondary, and more So Motivational offers listeners a chance to catch up on much of the work Von has been doing outside his work with Tanya Morgan. “This started out as a collection of all of my recent collaborations,” explains Von of the mixtape, “but I decided to use the ones that fit best as well as record a few new tracks.” The result is a collection of tracks that to come together with fluidity. With “Lookin Fly” featuring Trackademicks and Donwill, the three rap over a funk-inspired Von Pea-produced track, while, elsewhere, “Year Of The Other” finds Von trading verses with fellow emcees Max Mega and Justin Battle over the track’s smacking drums, wobbling bass, and hazy synthesizers.
Von Pea’s Pea’s Gotta Have It will be released September 7th via Interdependent Media.
