Sign Of The Times: Return To Oceania is a concept album which attempts to tap into the same psychological approach as George Orwell’s classic “1984”. The album is based on the day character Winston Smith went insane. He begins a suicide letter which quickly becomes a manifesto. It chronicles the day, as he runs the gamut of emotions, from self-hatred, to avenge himself upon the world! The outcome is a veritable schmorgasbord of underground legends, over slick beats. Featuring Solomon Childs (Wu-Tang), Shyheim (Wu-Tang), Capone (CNN), Craig G, Sha Stimuli, Doap Nixon (AOTP), Hanz On (Ice Water), Nova-Kane (AP 2099), Fes Taylor, Dainjamental, Anomos, Big Stat, Swave Sevah, Njeri Earth, Storm da Ghetto Mutant (Soul Kid Klik), G-Clef da Mad Komposa (Soul Kid Klik), Jus-P (Shadow Clan), Nems and more. Entirely produced by Chris Stylez Tha Shadow Figure, this is an album meant to be played from beginning to end. Get the album here:
