The Abyssinian Archive is a dope collection of tracks I did with handful of dope artists. We got together usually on the weekends and hung out and write a couple verses and play beats, naturally. It turns out each of these tracks happened on a Sunday. In hip-hop, we can call that a Cipher Sunday.
The name Abyssinian came from my traverse into different genres when I was studying music anthropology. The Abyssinians are a reggae band from Jamaica but the word Abyssinian also stood for a kind of people that inhabited the Horn of Africa.
This name is more of a time stamp for me in knowing that all of the tracks but one took place on a Sunday. Shout to Kenyattah Black, Disco, Fawkes, Frankie Blanco, Burna, J. Guillotine, Ron Hendricks & FinerThings!
I’m excited to share these tracks with you. I'll start it off with the track we did called: Rayban Roulette. I remixed the vocals a bit cleaner and made it pop a bit. Enjoy!!!
