Next month Definitive Jux and Fat Possum are collaborating to posthumously release King of Hearts, the debut solo LP from Camu Tao. The Columbus rap legend spent time with the MHz, S.A. Smash and the Weathermen before lung cancer laid him to rest in 2008. Def Jux head honcho El-P is coming to Columbus Aug. 16 to host a release party for the record at Skully’s.
You can pre-order King of Hearts through the Def Jux site, where they’re also offering a free download of Forever Frozen In Television Time, a 2005 EP by El-P and Camu Tao under the name Central Services.
