Gemstones – “Blind Elephant”
Chicago Rapper Gemstones is back and is excited to release his long-awaited full-length debut album Blind Elephant (Xist/Malaco). Displaying deft verbal acrobatics, while serving an honest message, Gemstones felt that this was a perfect time in hip hop to make his official return. Formally known as Gemini, originally signed to Lupe Fiasco’s 1st & 15th imprint on Atlantic Records, Gemstones appeared prominently on two iconic gold-selling hip-hop albums—the Grammy Award-winning Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor and Grammy Award-nominated Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool, which he wrote on. He toured on bills with Kanye West and Rihanna and collaborated on songs with superstars such as Jay Z, Drake, and more. The release of Blind Elephant showcases the critically lauded Chicago MC’s awakening in life, music and the world as well as proves that he still has the skills to attack a track with conviction and technical abilities that once had MTV, XXL and The Source calling him one of Chi-Town “One To Watch.” Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
