As Planet Asia returns from his trip to Africa, we thought it fitting to release the track “Thyself.” Since knowledge and wisdom produces understanding, Gensu Dean brought in some heavyweight friends, David Banner & Tragedy Khadafi, to drop jewels on listeners. Let Dean’s mystic production draw you into the zone, so that you can acknowledge the Gods speech. Know thyself.

The Grand Imperial Gensu Dean caused waves with his Mello Music Group debut LP Lo-Fi Fingahz. Never one to rest on his laurels, the southern beat maestro is ready to announce his sophomore project with the legendary Planet Asia. The new project is titled Abrasions and will be out this winter! But to hold fans over in the meantime, Dean is dropping some new visuals for his collaboration with David Banner, “Alice In Wonderland”.
Conceived and directed by Calvan Fowler of Daydream Filmworks, the same mind and lens that directed Dean’s previous video “Forever feat. Large Professor”, this clip is a trip down the rabbit hole complete with mad hatters, giant rabbits and sadistic doctors. David Banner sounds energized as he plays off Deans’ smooth guitar sample in a two-verse tale about a woman done wrong. The two Mississippi natives show great chemistry in the clip, no surprise since the two go back years—their first work together was more than 10 years ago when Banner was in the heralded group, Crooked Lettaz.
“Alice In Wonderland” can be found on the stellar Lo-Fi Fingahz album, still available on cd, vinyl, and digital. Stay tuned for more news on the Gensu Dean & Planet Asia album, Abrasions, coming on Mello Music Group.

Grammy winning Producer, Chin Injeti’s “Peoples Mixtape”, is an ode to those people who inspire him and are inspired by him, as well as a showcase of Chin’s versatility as a producer and love for a wide range of music. With features from David Banner, Jay Electronica, Talib Kweli, The New Royales, Bishop Lamont, Jasiri X, Moka Only, Shad, Maestro, Skratch Bastid, Kyprios, Chace Infinite, Krondon, Zaki Ibrahim, as well as two young rising artists from The Hastings Set; Sophia Danai and Omar Khan, it has a diversity that is not often seen in most music projects.
David Banner’s appearance on Chin Injeti’s “Peoples Mixtape” is the final advance single before its July 17 release via Wandering Worx as a free download. In the track “Peoples 2″ produced by Chin, David Banner comes with a style far removed from his earlier works such as “Like A Pimp”. “Play”, and “Get Like Me”. Weather it’s the raw production of Chin’s hard hitting drums and the ringing church organ that sounds anything but angelic, or just a musical change for Banner, the Mississippi MC approaches the record with aggression and heavy punchlines from a roaring voice box.

Gensu Dean stormed into 2012, signing to Mello Music Group, releasing his first single with Roc Marciano ¥en, then following up with a video featuring the legendary Large Professor, and today releases his second single Alice In Wonderland featuring David Banner. All three tracks can be found on Dean’s debut record “Lo-Fi Fingahz” which is out eveyrwhere now on cd, vinyl, and digitally via Mello Music Group.
Gensu Dean and David Banner aren’t new to working together though. The two friends first linked a number of years ago when Dean laid the production for David Banner’s Priority Records debut on the now famous track “Grey Skies”. The two also worked together on the Ill Relatives record “Cold Cold World.” Today David Banner returns the favor by being a part of Gensu Dean’s debut album Lo-Fi Fingahz.
