Liquid Beat Records & Slum Funk Entertainment are proud to announce the new EP from Watts, CA raised & Portland, OR based rapper Libretto, entitled “Stay Focused”.
Libretto once again shows his range as an emcee with four unique songs over beats provided by some of today’s best talent. The EP features production from Trox, Byron The Aquarius, J. Hughes & Eric Beats (The I In Team), & Clint with vocal appearances by Fat Nice, Aul Purpis, the late great Barry Hampton, Toni Hill, & more!
The Stay Focused project represents only some of the amazing material that Libretto recorded prior to his incarceration 3 years ago. It also represents his mind state as he continues to stay physically, emotionally, and spiritually fit while preparing for his release within a year. Libretto’s music shows his unyielding spirit in spite of the foreknowledge that he wouldn’t be free to enjoy the immediate fruits of his labor. All the more reason Libretto aimed to make these tracks timeless and something that will stay in rotation long past the quick expiration date afforded much of modern Hip-Hop.
We hope you enjoy the music and that it will motivate you to stay focused on your own goals and overcoming all obstacles in your way.
Tony has blessed more than a few Liquid Beat releases. He is a multi-talented producer, instrumentalist, and singer. On this release, he does it all along with label duties. Solid from every angle! Liquid Beat
