When Austin, Texas-by-way-of-Virginia Beach, Va. rapper Ced Hughes heard RJD2‘s The Colossus, he wasn’t only intrigued by what he was listening to on his stereo. He was inspired. So inspired, in fact, that Hughes began thinking about how he could pay homage to the album. And finally, it clicked: he’d take choice cuts from the album and create his own project as a tribute to The Colossus. That’s what brings us to the aptly titled Ced Colossus, a seven-track free EP featuring Hughes at his most experimental and engrossing. We’re excited to premiere this project in conjunction with DJ Booth and Coalmine Records, the latter of which just launched its new website.
