d30bb8_1ce1dba740004900b2566103592ffe02-mv2d30bb8_31283bc37f7a43d7a39583ebfd30fdb7-mv2

BlaqueStone is music greatness. What more could one say about the talent and dedication that they posses. Recently their single 1159 was released with promises of a full length EP to soon follow, and this weekend the duo released that EP titled AfroNoon. The vibe and flow of each track is eargasmic. If you’re a fan of music that’s deeply rooted in culture and love then AfroNoon should be your next purchase. Fave tracks thus far : Stay, The Right, Exhale/Wrd (feat. Coles) and Dear Balck People, basically the whole album, but I digress.  To learn more about Blaquestone and to stay up to date with all their latest projects, shows, etc. head on over to http://www.blaquestone.com/image1

Press Play and vibe with me to Dear Black People:
