Produced by Exile. Inspired by The Artist Formerly Known As Prince. On Tears For A Prince, the L.A. beatsmith pays homage to the Purple One in the form of three heavyweight instrumentals. The beats are crafted from Prince samples, but flipped in a way only Exile can do. From the hazy slump of "Til The Dawn," the punchy funk of "Gonna Get High Together," and the bangin' grooves of "Love Your Life," Exile brings it all together with love on the MPC2000XL. From Exile - "I realized I have no choice but to honor his creative life by honoring my own by taking my good friends advice with these 3 simple beats and this hip hop I've been working on my whole life. This is what makes me happy. Inspiration turned to creation. With heart and with love. Rest in Peace, Prince." Limited edition of 300 copies on purple swirl vinyl, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Heart of LA youth music program.
