ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“But the rule seems to be that the bigger and more life-changing the decision, the less it will seem like a decision at all.” – Hugh Mackay

That phrase most definitely applies to Brince “Karmic Basis aka Uglee Troof” Washington. One phone call from his cousin Terry in 1992 took him from being a typical twelve-year-old, to being a multidimensional musician, lyricist, and all-around influence on hip-hop for generations to come.

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are” – Theodore Roosevelt

In 1997, music was clearly becoming his passion. He met a man by the name of Jim Burns, who told KB that he wanted to lend him an Ensoniq EPS sampler so that KB could learn to make beats. After his passing in 1998, Burns’ family explained to KB that they wanted him to keep the sampler because they felt Burns would have wanted him to have it. This led to KB research and practice the art of production, and he grew to be a diverse and talented producer with a long list of dynamic clients ranging from Capone to NgaFsh to Project Blowed.

In the years that followed, Karmic Basis went on to produce and record multiple mixtapes and albums for his own benefit as well as for various artists. As a rapper, he opened for numerous artists including; Gregory Isaacs, Steel Pulse, Lupe Fiasco, Evidence, Abstract Rude, and Aceyalone. He linked up with high school acquaintances to form a band (“Burnt”), and toured the United States and Canada. His career was allowing him to get out of the sometimes stifling environment that he had grown up in, and he was able to reside in Los Angeles and San Diego to expand his creative talents.

Always maintaining relevance in hip-hop has and always will be of the utmost importance to Karmic Basis, and in early 2011 he realized that people needed to be aware of his style of rap. The younger generation seemed to be so influenced by the mainstream “pop-hop”, that his style and the styles of those that had preceded and influenced him was being forgotten. He immediately pushed a few singles out, jumped on as a featured artist to numerous tracks, and did everything he could to polish his semi-retired flow. His words flowed quickly and efficiently into his music, being fueled by his experiences with life.

After a five year hiatus from his rap career, Karmic Basis is back with his highly anticipated fifth solo album, “The Khronos”. Co-executive produced by himself and multi-dimensional Tariq Beats, “The Khronos” delivers a fresh sound with a nod to the origins of hip-hop. With dynamic production and the diverse lyricism that Karmic Basis is well-known for, this project is not meant for the ears of the weak minded.
