I’ve been following 88 Keys for a minute now; since the days he produced tracks for Mos Def’s album “Black On Both Sides” actually.

He’s a very talented producer from Long Island who started in hip-hop after hearing Prince Paul’s production on De La Soul’s 1989 critically acclaimed album 3 Feet High and Rising. In the early ’90′s, 88′ met A Tribe Called Quest’s front man Q-Tip, Pete Rock and producer Large Professor working as an intern at West Hempstead’s The Music Palace recording studio. It was Large Professor who gave Charles his 88-Keys moniker after witnessing his skills on the Ensoniq ASR-10 keyboard.
Now he’s coming out with an album called “Death Of Adam“; a very interesting album featuring high profile guests such as Bilal, J Davey, Kanye West, Redman and many others. Productions are very nice and the executive producer for this project is non other than Kanye West (himself).
