NEW ALBUM: Karma x Lotus “The Honest Truth (2003- 2008)”

Ty Harper | Album,Audio,Music | Thursday, December 31st, 2015

Directed by Jai Nitai Lotus.

We close out 2015 with an unreleased throwback project from MTL’s Karma & Lotus.

“Montreal hip hop artists Karma Atchykah and Jai Nitai Lotus collaborated for over a decade, combining their talents to produce what some people have called “the Montreal Black Star.” 


A little bit about us, Montreal and The Honest Truth LP:
“Karma and I have been working together since meeting in 2002 at a talent show. We really hit it off in terms of influences and style and over the years we shared many moments on stage and in the studio. We recorded “The Honest Truth” LP in between 2003-2007 and was supposed to drop 2008 (on PTR records), as a follow-up to our “The Notice EP” (2006), but we both got lost in solo projects and it never happened. After the real strong response to our “Monday” songvideo (off my ‘One- Off’ series) a couple weeks ago we felt like it would be a good holiday-freebie, before the New Year.
This project is really close to our hearts and was recorded during a special time in the scene here in Montreal. Turf Builder (pre-Art Beat, similar idea) was going on, Karma and I were doing monthlys at Jello Bar (closed now) and really getting a lot of people hip to our sound. The music really speaks for itself: soulful, honest, raw hip hop shit. I produced the the entire album and Karma and I go back and forth on the rhymes. Not a thing has been changed to this project and it still sounds fresh to the ear. The few select cats who had copies of it over the years would always mention it to us like “when are y’all going to put out The Honest Truth?! its still so relevant today”…testimony to timeless music perhaps?:) Karma and I sat down recently and listened to it to make sure it was a move we would both still felt good about taking. When listening we were surprised on how some of the shit we were rapping about is more relevant to us today then it was then…music is funny like that. “
Much peace and creativity!
Jai Nitai Lotus
