Image: 1609350 Redefnition Records is proud to release the latest project from one
of hip hop’s most multi-talented artists, Insight the Truncator aka
Andre Todman. Insight returns to the spotlight after a departure
from the industry in recent years. Where was he and what was
he up to? Well after a decade and a half in the business, dozens
of respected records, countless national and international tours,
Insight took a well deserved hiatus to try other endeavors such
as app development, electronics and social media strategizing,
areas in which he found great success. This shouldn’t surprise
longtime fans who may remember in as early as 1997, Insight
created his own website, Insight.fm which featured an interactive
SP1200 and forums. This was rare during the pre-social media
era, long before having a web presence was a part of an artist’s
everyday operation. Building a strong reputation for his live
performance, his on-stage capabilities included not only rapping,
but also producing, DJing, and even live drawing-while-freestyling
and interacting with audience members. The triple threat from
Boston (MC / DJ / Producer) has dedicated his life to his creativity
and his diverse portfolio and resume is a true testament to the
kind person Insight is on and off of his recordings. Credited
for mentoring and being instrumental in the career beginnings
of many of the staples of Boston’s current Hip Hop scene, and
beyond, Insight also assisted a young D.C. native known as Damu
the Fudgemunk, who later matured into an esteemed solo artist
in his own right (and co-owner of Redefnition records). The 2
would frst collaborate on one of the greatest hip hop albums of
the 2000’s as Y Society on 2007’s full length, Travel at Your Own
Pace. Through this collaboration they formed a brotherhood that
today is well into its second decade, bookmarked by this latest
release. On Ears Hear Spears, “The Truncator” passionately
speaks his mind through rhyme while “The Fudgemunk” handles
all production. Throughout 10 outstanding tracks Insight delivers
a diverse lyrical exhibition over a then 20-21 year old Damu the
Fudgemunk’s beats. There’s an undeniable level of directness
and sincerity in his lyrics which are artfully assembled in a manner
that will astonish literary buffs, yet permeate the lives of everyday
listeners alike. Pick up a copy of the album on vinyl, Cassette
Tape or CD now. Vinyl version includes printed lyric sheet. Album
also available to stream or download on all digital channels.
