If Sandpeople is Portland's very own Wu-Tang Clan, then Al-One is U-God. At least, he is when compared to the more prolific members (Sapient, Illmaculate) of the hiphop collective that hog all the limelight.
But that's about the change with his solo debut EP Talk Of The Town. The EP will be available as a free download on June 7th and its lead single features an excellent cameo from the one and only Freeway, plus some turntable heroics courtesy of DJ Wicked. It's a great hint of what is to come from Al-One, who is prepping a LP for release later this year.
