Kinship officially consists of older brother Ubiquitous Poet (U.P.) and Eloquent Slave (E.S.). The oldest of the three brothers in the family, Pookimous Extreme was more into the visual arts than music creation. Although Pookimous never aspired to be “in a rap group” he heavily supported his younger brothers and provided inspiration and guidance on an artistic level that really showed up in the Kinship sound, aesthetic, and overall vibe of the group.
Black-N-Mild was crafted in 1995 in Richmond, VA and its sound is mellow, smooth and laidback with a superb Jazzy vibe. The release will be available on vinyl (300 copies) and CD (250 copies) through Hip-Hop Enterprise and cassette (75 handnumbered copies) will be available through the good folks at Ill Catz Records.
The vinyl will be limited to 300 copies in 3 different versions:
100 on Blue Vinyl w/ White Clouds
100 on Transparant Vinyl w/ White & Blue Splatters (Vinyldigital Exclusive)
100 on Traditional Black Vinyl
This project is dedicated to Daniel Hoover aka Pookimous Extreme... Rest in Power

Worth every penny .
Easy to listen . Hiphop-ish and a bit jazzy vibe . Light bass is on the spot .
Motives are various . Some tracks though could be in better recording quality .
Overall very recommend for background listening . When you take a break from some fav albums
