LMNO to Complete 10 Albums in 2010 Promise on October 10
Visionairies member LMNO is planning on wrapping up 2010 with a bang. The Long Beach, Calif. native released 10 albums with 10 different producers this year and is now bundling the collection in a box set called 'James Kelly.' The 10-disc set, with accompanying t-shirt, will retail for $60. It appropriately lands in stores on October 10 via Lifted Research Group
LMNO, which stands for Leave My Name Out, kicked off the series with 'Push That Work' back in February. The emcee put out six more LPs, rapping over beats by Georgia Anne Muldrow, Dert, Kev Brown, Theory Hazit, Mr. Brady and Astronote. The remaining three albums -- 'Blessing In Disguise,' 'No Apologies' and 'LMNO Is Dead' -- will be released for the first time as part of the 10-CD pack. The releases feature production from KeyKool and DJ Babu, with 'Blessing in Disguise' serving as a full-length collabo with Visionaries members KeyKool and 2mex.
Making his debut as part of the Visionaries with their 1998 debut 'Galleries,' LMNO released his first solo album 'Leave My Name Out' in 2000. Since then, he has recorded and put out more than a dozen solo albums.
