*2020 rounds out with a new album from Glenn “Daddy-O” Bolton, founder of original Hip Hop band, Stetsasonic, and music producer extraordinaire (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, etc.).
He has also served as an A&R executive for Universal Music Group and acted as music supervisor for several films (Dangerous Minds, Straight Outta Brooklyn, etc.) Known internationally as Professor Daddy-O, his latest release marks his 7th solo album.
Entitled G.O.A.T. Antidote; this continues his musical career acclaimed for that unforgettable voice, inimitable rap style, and socially conscious lyrics. Following the success of From My Hood 2 U, which featured appearances by Posdnuos of De La Soul, Bun B, Smif-N-Wessun, and R.A. The Rugged Man; G.O.A.T. Antidote—as with some of his previous albums—will feature appearances by none other than Chuck D of Public Enemy, Wise Intelligent, Big Mike of The Geto Boys, Andre Nickatina, and Indigo Phoenyx.
Also bringing his incredible skills back to produce some of the tracks on G.O.A.T. Antidote, is David “C-Doc” Snyder of the Impossebulls and Public Enemy fame. Along with the release of G.O.A.T. Antidote, Professor Daddy-O is keeping himself quite busy with an album from Night Train, (Stetsasonic’s Professor Daddy-O, Public Enemy’s Chuck D, and Arrested Development’s, Speech) including the track “Bullets.”
There is also Self Destruction 2, a collaboration album serving us a sequel and new movement to the original song, “Self-Destruction” which was a huge effort released in 1989 with a collection of the most prominent rappers of that day. Anticipate singles such as “8:46 It Takes The Hood To Save The Hood” produced by Gold Toes featuring Too Short and E-40. Bringing in some heavy-hitting producers for the Self Destruction 2 track lineup will be Marley Marl, Pete Rock, Easy Mo Bee, Large Professor, and DJ Premier. The Self Destruction 2 Movement is helmed by Opposition, who handles artists such as Juice Wrld, Zaytoven, and T-Pain.
As Chuck D posts, his fact for the day was that: “Professor Daddy-O of Stetsasonic is the Tom Petty of Hip Hop, meaning like they say TP never made a bad rock song… Daddy-O has never made a bad hip hop record. Ever.”
