about

Summer 2013 saw the release of Dour Candy, a collaboration between Ninja Tune artist Blockhead and critically-acclaimed rapper Billy Woods. Woods’ buzz was at an all-time high coming off the release of History Will Absolve Me, his 2012 opus that was on virtually every rap-related “best of 2012” list. Blockhead comes into this project newly removed from his high-profile collaboration with indie legend Illogic.

Dour Candy catches both artists in a moment of flux and that momentum propels this tightly wound LP. This is Woods first project with a single producer, and he is joined on the mic by Aesop Rock, Open Mike Eagle, Moka Only and Elucid of Cult Favorite. Album artwork by Ashes 57.

This album is dedicated to New York City for holding me down, literally and figuratively.

I would like to thank Willie Green for being the best engineer in the game.
Elucid, L'Wren, Aesop Rock, Addikt and Mike Eagle for lending their
considerable talents to my record. Blockhead, 'preciate you reaching out,
I'm honored to have done a record with you.
