Parallel • "The Paradox" (2018)

Parallel releases their 7th album, on the 20-year mark, as a collective! In '98... Wushu, Jahs, Lawjik, Airborn & Hyphen Select all met up, with a couple crates of sample records, to record their first few songs together. At that time, they were all part of separate hip hop groups and decided to merge all of them together and form into 1 big supergroup called Parallel (adopting members from Centa Cercle, Earthshakes, Ghostly Goblins, Humnoydz, & Visionary Force). Over the years they've released "Digital Wasteland" (1999), "Vital Forecast" (2001), "Say What?" (2005), "Do You Understand?" (2007), "Dont Sleep" (2011), "No More Secrets" (2015) and now their latest album, "The Paradox" (2018), which features Airborn, Arvindjeet Kaur, Castor Pollux, Dope 1, Double J, Fatty B, Herrera, Holiq, Hyphen Select, Pen Swift, See Eye, Wushu & Zaire Black. All of the beats are produced by Hyphen Select + original cover art designed by Jahs.

Keepin' the vibe y'all!
