I received a letter from Coy this week that included a few answers to questions you’ve sent in. These were interspersed with a personal letter so I’m afraid that they’re not as nicely arranged as they usually are, but from what I understand he’s pretty busy with the release of The S.O.N. right now.
There were a few questions on this letter, from fans:
* Why did Trey delete his Twitter? I thought that was where we were going to get our updates?
Answer: I’m not quite sure why that was deleted. I’ll try to remember to ask him on our next visit. All I know is that he’s working really hard to make sure this latest release goes smoothly.
* What stores is the CD gonna be available at?
Answer: That’s a very good question, because the answer can be all store, or no stores. You guys have to call your local stores, whether it be Best Buy, Target, Walmart or any store that carries music, and ask the store if they’re going to carry the new SPM album. You can even tell them you’d like to preorder your copy, because a lot of stores don’t order enough, and they sell out the first day. That happens in many stores, every time we release an album. This would be a good mission for all our Dope House Soldiers: Call local stores and make sure they’re going to order a healthy supply of The S.O.N. The greater the success of the album, the greater our ability to give you more dope projects. We’ve got so much we want to give you, and you can bet that whatever I release is going to be dope, from film, to literature, to clothing, to video. Always remember that your extra effort strengthens this movement which strengthens all of us.
* What’s Ingrooves/Fontana?
Answer: Our distributer was Fontana, but they merged with Ingrooves, so now we have the power of both companies. But to answer your question clearly, they are the distributor for Dope House Records.
Incandesio told me about a song by Sickest Villain called “Remember him, SPM.” She said it was kinda sad yet beautiful and hopeful at the same time. Just wanted to give the brother a shout out. I’m thankful for your love and support, my G.
I really encourage all of y’all to call a few stores and ask if they’re going to carry the album; if they say no, ask them what you need to do to request it. A lot of stores have forms customers can fill out to request certain products, ask for one of those. Tell whoever you talk to that a lot of people have been waiting for (literally) years for this album to be released.
