The largely influential Detroit emcee/producer Magestik Legend releases his long-awaited third solo album, All This Time, today (5/11/2018). Far from the traditional “Detroit hip hop record,” the new project is the result of Magestik’s artistic self-discovery through creative experimentation. Completely self-produced, the album features guests 14KT, The Black Opera co-founder Jamall Bufford (fka Buff 1 of the Athletic Mic League and Crown Royal), and more.
“This project sounds like an artist just letting himself be in the moment until it passes, and that is exactly what Magestik did. Most of the songs were made on the spot – with freestyles, melodies, and rhythms that painted the picture of exactly how he felt in that instance. Uniquely designed to go against the grain, ‘All This Time’ is a vibe. It can only be captured once in a lifetime, and is the culmination of ML’s ability to craft a piece of perfect imperfection on his own terms. ‘All This Time’ is Magestik’s full exploration of who he is as an artist.” – The Black Opera
All This Time is Magestik Legend’s diary as an everyday man and OG whose rich history and influence in the Detroit hip hop scene has been largely overlooked. It also serves as his first full-length solo effort since 2015’s Legend Has It.
