Published Nov 18, 2016Since releasing The Dena Tape 2 at the top of 2015, Odd Future founding member Hodgy (f.k.a. Hodgy Beats) has remained relatively silent apart from some standalone tracks earlier this year. In addition to his name change, the MC has revealed the details behind his debut full-length album.
Titled Fireplace:TheNotTheOtherSide, the record will arrive December 9 through Columbia. The artwork, which you can see above, was designed by Hodgy himself.
The record will feature appearances from Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes and Salomon Faye, with production being handled by BADBADNOTGOOD, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Knxwledge, 88-Keys Nottz, Rahki, Jonti and more.
Along with the announcement, Hodgy has released a video for "Barbell," offering up a taste of what's to come from the record over some soulful vocal chops and gentle drums.
"My debut album is gratefully my past to present," Hodgy said in a statement. "Same time I had got my solo deal, around the time me and my child's mother were at wit's end, I was in search for a higher ground."
Fireplace:TheNotTheOtherSide arrives next month, with pre-orders available now. Read through the tracklist to watch the video for "Barbell" in the player below.
