During his time on Aftermath records, Bishop Lamont was one of the more productive artists, releasing various projects such as Caltroit and The Confessional. However, all of the releases were street albums, with the West Coast emcee’s studio album The Reformation never coming to light.
All of that is about to change, said Lamont in an interview with thebeeshine.com.
“My album, Reformation, and, of course, Dave New York’s I Got a Story to Tell, I’m only focused on those two projects,” he explained. “Nothing else will come out before that.”
Despite his focus on just the two aforementioned projects, Bishop Lamont revealed many more albums in the works. “But after that, me and Torae, Planet of the Apes, me and Rich Kidd gonna do an incredible project.”
One of the collaborations Lamont appears to be most excited about is Reks. “Me and Reks been talking about something. If you not up on Reks, you need to get familiar…that’s that next dude; he’s incredible, and a beautiful spirit, and a real soldier in this shit. Of course, Caltroit is gonna happen, Metropolis; me and Black Milk. Gonna be a lot of projects.”
“I don’t plan to stop. I hate to make a Puff Daddy cliche, but I can’t stop; I won’t stop; not yet,” he added. “It’s a lot of time to make up for, with my whole Aftermath…for almost five-and-a-half years. I got a lot of time to make up for. A lot of albums that people need to hear and experience.”
