Supreeme – Church and State

Sunday, March 6, 2011 by | 2 Comments; | Category: Music, Rap

A lot of ya’ll might remember when we debuted Supreeme’s final album, God Bless the Child, back in 2009. It’s hard to believe Supreeme recorded and released this rare, hard-to-find album, Church and State, nearly 8 years ago. Though the group disbanded this album can still be held as ahead of it’s time. I consider this their prime when they birthed the Atlanta indie “hipster” rap scene, before anyone ever knew what a hipster was… Greedmont Park presents the Grady High School grads [Negashi Armada, King Self and Dope Pope], a trio of international teenagers using the theme of globalization, and all its political and socioeconomic baggage, as a metaphor for their Supreeme takeover. This timeless album inspired me on so many levels during college, and after moving to New York and recently listening to it on the subway I felt like it was something everyone should experience. Since we released their last album, it only felt right to re-release their first album. This is a straight up classic!
