|Gift of Gab, best known as the technically adept MC of the vaunted Blackalicious, knew that after waiting over five years for a follow-up solo release to Fourth Dimensional Rocket that he would have to really take this one far. Like other planet kind of far. Escape 2 Mars signifies the next groundbreaking voyage in the career of an MC who is nothing short of iconic. Production on Escape 2 Mars was placed mainly in the hands of the Bay Area's talented DNAEBEATS, with a few tracks also helmed by Headnodic, from Gab's most recent star collabo project The Mighty Underdogs and Crown City Rockers. The album is less about Mars and ''more so about taking care of the planet we're on. We might have to escape to Mars or somewhere else if we keep taking the planet we live on for granted.'' says Gab. ''I'm not trying to preach to anyone, I just think it's important for us to raise the level of consciousness and consideration of these things.'' Featuring guest appearances by Del the Funky Homosapien and Brother Ali.|
