The other significant local hip-hop release this evening comes from the Fresh Breath Committee, who also took time to mix it up with us this week. It's pretty safe bet that all the local heads that aren't at the hi-dive will be at the Fox Theatre in Boulder for the release of CPR, the outfit's full-length debut. An all-star lineup, the show features Masta Ace, who appears on the new album, the ReMINDers, 3 the Hardway, the Pirate Signal and DJ Skip Ripkin. Before you make your way up to Boulder, download a cut from the new album and read what the outfit has to say about working with Masta Ace and its take on local hip-hop.
