Eldorado Red is gearing up his newest album "White Power" which is set to drop Jan 10th on BGM Records. The album will feature Alley Boy, Waka Flocka, Smoke DZA, Bambino Gold, Trill Ent's Lil Phat, Haisha Porter, along with production by Mike Will, Zaytoven & Sonny Digital.
The vintage hip hop sound is still the underlying force behind their music but this project is much more aggressive musically and lyrically. Awon's delivery is firmer and Kameleon ventures into newer territory sample-wise. The result is an album hip hop heads young and old can feel.
