ThePhantom* (Kemet Coleman), local rapper, producer and Kansas City advocate, recently announced that his new album, The Fountain of Youth, will be released on July 12. The album will feature Dutch Newman, Ces Cru, Atilla, Headfella, Approach, and more. The album's art was designed by Daniel "Lucid" Bartle, Kansas City muralist and artist.
ThePhantom*'s press release stated that the album "promises to solidify Kansas City's position as the leader in genre blending hip-hop. Think Lupe Fiasco, Deadmau5 and NERD all combined in one."
That certainly piques my curiosity, for one.
ThePhantom* has started a marketing campaign called "Phantom Phriday" in promotion of the upcoming release. The artist will release a free song on his Facebook band page every Friday until the album is released.
