Print Presents: The Death of Print the Birth of Chris Faust

“Most species do their own evolving, making it up as they go along, which is the way Nature intended. And this is all very natural and organic and in tune with mysterious cycles of the cosmos, which believes that there’s nothing like millions of years of really frustrating trial and error to give a species moral fiber and, in some cases, backbone.> Terry Pratchett

Artistically, Print of Good Day Good Night embarked on many adventures in his music career. He has performed with the best, learned from music prodigies, and has been taught by Hip Hop icons around the globe. Traveling the world, fusing different cultures, and understanding different social perspectives about life,  has made Print’s journey well rounded as well as insightful. In his journey, he constantly spoke of the evolution of music and where he sees himself in the near future. Understanding the reshaping of  the Hip Hop World, Print’s philosophy of music stemmed from the ideas of growth, progression, and evolution. Artists, who constantly work towards the betterment of their craft, go against the idea of conformity, and are on the forefront of innovation, tend to evolve into great musicians. With inspirations from his AOK Collective, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Talib Kweli, Mickey Factz, Drake, Kid Cudi, Outasight, Theophilus London as well as many others, Print feels he has come to a state of evolution.

Shedding the old skin and moving forward in his Career, Print has been faced with a simple, yet difficult question. Who are you? Who is he? Who is Print? He has come to the conclusion that Print was only a narrator, a shell, a guardian, a cocoon; safely keeping dormant his true self. In William Shakespeare’s, “Hamlet” , the protagonist embraces an important idea about “self.”  Hamlet said, “To Thine Own Self Be True”, a philosophy Print relates to on a deep level. With this idea holding much truth to Print, he now understands that in order to tell his story from a first person perspective, in order to capture the true picture he wants to paint, in order to really relay his messages, he must embrace his true self; his true nature. Print of Good Day Good Night, no longer can tell this amazing story. He no longer can be the narrator, the shell or needs the cocoon. He has broken out and a wonderful butterfly sores the night air, bringing forth a fresh take on life.  Print will definitely  be missed,  but the future is now and he is ready to lead the pack, in this marathon of music. Therefore, it is with great pleasure to introduce to the world, to Prints fans, to you, “CHRIS FAUST” or plainly  Print evolved. Good Day God Night, Mr. Faust’s band, will still be around, creating powerful music for this amazing adventure to come. So for all of the Print lovers out there, “THE REAL IS BACK.” The era of Chris Fausthas arrived!  Stay tuned for more.

Print Presents: FMF (Friday Music Fever) Ep. 3

•June 19, 2009 • Leave a Comment

l_87d768081d3a412995c79c36cce011a1Whats going on guys! So today is Friday and you all know what that means, right? Print of Good Day Good Nights, “Friday Music Fever”(FMF) is back for its THIRD installment. Today, we have brought you some new, never before heard of tracks from Print, for your listening pleasure. With all the continuing gloom in the clouds, the peaking out of the sun, and the illusion of summer, we over at Yatta Mayjour felt that these records would compliment the weather perfectly. Also, Print wanted to be a little more personal with his fans this week. We feel that not enough honest emotion and thought is present in today’s Hip-Hop. So with no further adieu, here you go!!!!!

First, Print takes you on a emotional ride on many topics in his “Successful” Rendition, which was recorded about 4 hours ago. Over Drakes, “Successful” instrumental, Print speaks on many topics; from Women, Friendship, Loyalty, Music, and the current state of Hip Hop. He offers an honest, genuine voice and opinion of how he feels about certain situations currently. Obviously, Print has been watching, observing and going through some things himself; he wanted his audience to listen to his pain, struggle, and triumph. He has kept the title of the original track, paying homage to Drake many times on this rendition. Print feels that many artists don’t give enough credit to each other and it builds a false sense of unity. From the outside looking in, artists may look like they have it all together. Although the honest truth is that the music industry these days, is built on the “out for self mentality.” So check out “Successful the Free Write”, by Print of Good Day Good Night. This is a very heartfelt and honest record, so pay close attention!

Second, Print wanted his audience to really see how he started his music career. He wanted people to understand where he came from and invites his audience to the very beginning of his journey to stardom. He gave us at Yatta Mayjour, his very first record, which was recorded in 2004. This record is the very very first written, and recorded song, Print ever made. Entitled, “Hard Work”, Print talks about the struggles of being a full time artist, a full time employee, full time college student and a full time human being. In this current recession, you can really feel and understand Prints message on this record. So check out “Hard Work”, Prints very first recording. The audio may be a little raw but we feel that there is so much beauty in that. You can actually see what this artist used for his inspiration in order to become the Emcee he is today.

Last but not least, Print takes us into his personal life on this relationship record entitled, “Used to Be in Love”, featuring Africa Miranda, which was recorded in 2005. Many of you may have remembered Africa Miranda from the Grammy Contest, a couple of years back. She was a finalist in the Grammy contest, in which the winner would perform on stage with Justin Timberlake as well as have a pending Recording Contract. This record simply talks about the many relationship problems men and women have on a day to day basis. What’s Ironic about the record is that many of the problems Print spoke about didn’t really happen to him until later on in his own relationship. So he kind of, in a weird way, wrote his own future before it happened. Enjoy this record, its a goodie!!!i

Print Presents: Friday Music Fever (FMF) ep. 2

•June 12, 2009 • Leave a Comment

FMF (Friday Music Fever)Whats going on guys! So today is Friday and you all know what that means, right? Print of Good Day Good Nights, “Friday Music Fever”(FMF) is back for its second installment. Today, we have brought you some new never before heard of tracks from Print, for your listening pleasure. With all the gloom in the clouds,  we over at Yatta Mayjour felt that these records would compliment the weather perfectly.

First, Print takes you on a metaphorical roller coaster, over a classic Hi-Tek instrumental, with a record entitled, “The Musical Theory.” Print brings you into his imagination, where he creates a insane world, bringing to life a number of instruments. He tells three different stories, with the last verse being his favorite. He actually tells the story of how writers block came to be. This is a very intricate record so pay close attention!

The Musical Theory:

Second, Print felt with the NBA championship being so intense this year, he would team up with his fellow Emcee, Outasight and his producer/rapper, Drebond for a parity record entitled,. “Like its Basketball f. Outasight & Drebond.” Here, they all use Basketball as a metaphor, to talk about the state of Hip-Hop. This is def. one record for the streets to bump on the pavement, while playing a good full court game. 

Like its Basketball f. Outasight & Drebond

Last but not least, Print takes us home, in a controversial record called, “Taxi Cab.”Taxicab is a record that sheds light on how Print feels about people who have falsely created their artistic styles, perspectives, and points of view by biting off of others; specifically Print. Print and company have been the templates for some of the Matrix’s favorite artists before they were important. Although, Print sometimes feels slated because in this age in Hip Hop, no one really pays homage to those that may have paved the way or helped an artist understand how to really become successful at their craft. Instead, they create a facade for themselves and Print wanted to take a long Taxicab ride, while venting on the subject.

Print Presents: Potholes in My Blog Album Review

•May 5, 2009 • Leave a Comment

Whats going on guys!! So the good People at Potholes in My Blog, reviewed  my Album and I have to say they were very impressed. Which in turn made me very impressed with my self. Check out what they said:

Album Review

Album Review

Album Review: Print – Comic Books: Unlimited (2009)
Rating: 4 out of 5 Potholes

I am currently reflecting on Lupe Fiasco’s “Fahrenheit 1/15″ series. The three 2005 releases were the tools vital in cementing Lu’s impressive foundation as an emcee. It was an overwhelming collection that showcased who he was as an artist, and what he was capable of bringing to the hip-hop table. It was a 2009 release that brought me back to that special 2005 time. Print’s Comic Books: Unlimited is a stellar ensemble of tracks that act as not only a natural representation, but a refreshing introduction.

The album’s production provides this energetic emcee with the opportunity to showcase his diversity. Print can attack tracks with a relentless rapid-fire delivery (see “Unlimited”) and he is also capable to turn it down a bit and focus on the clarity of his words (see “Superman Is Alive). Print consistently keeps things fresh throughout this lengthy listen.

Don’t even get me started on “Super Friends”. Get your popcorn ready, folks. Just over eleven minutes of some of, collectively, the most impressive rhyming I have heard in some time. It’s the cream of the crop on this album, bar none. A beat that doesn’t try to do too much, combined with a two handfuls worth of determined emcees? That’s a super formula right there. The track also serves up the biggest disappointment, as none of the Potholes staff was invited to handle a verse.

While I praise Comic Books: Unlimited for a great quality/quantity ratio, a few tracks that don’t shine as much as the rest render this album slightly beyond enough. A few cuts here and there would really have helped this compilation. The problem? Print just sounds a little off alongside his female sidekicks. First, he loses himself in the moment when he talks about the beautiful “Lana Lang”. Capri’s addition to “Ridin’ High” unfortunately mixes pleasure with disaster. These tracks do prove that Print has got that sensitive side to him, but it appears to be the Achilles heel. Women . . .

I am beyond impressed with Comic Books: Unlimited. It is a trip down many roads without ever veering into generally unappealing territory. Print’s effort on this album is heroic, to say the least. Be on the lookout for his group Good Day, Good Night. I expect big things after the foundation this emcee has cemented.
