premiereA year in the making, Express’ follow up to 2012’s How To Be A Player is finally here. Continuing the emcee’s penchant to loosely derive his musical inspirations from popular films, HIGHER LEARNING is Express channeling the nuances of the popular John Singleton film while at the same applying his lyrical dexterity and strong storytelling to each individual track with the skill of a painter on wax.

Joining Express in his audio motion picture mixtape on the features note are Envy (on lead single “Peace”), Ricquo Jones (who also handles a bulk of the production for the project), Jack Freeman, Tatyana Monique, Bianca Rodriguez, and Rob Gullatte, to name a few. Production, meanwhile, features the likes of Chris Rockaway & Da Beatbakerz. Stream the album below via Audiomack and download it below.
