The Adrian Younge produced Souls of Mischief future classic. There is Only Now is now available as a deluxe picture disc while supplies last! the sixth album from legendary hip-hop group Souls of Mischief, There Is Only Now is a unique cinematic 90s crime tale of love, loss, and revenge. A conceptual collaboration with producer Adrian Younge and the first release on his freshly launched Linear Labs Records label, There is Only Now gets it's inspiration from a near fatal incident involving group members A-Plus, Opio, Tajai, and Phesto early in their careers. Set in 1994, There Is Only Now serves as a bookend to two decades of music since the release of their seminal debut album, '93 Til Infinity. There is Only Now sees the Souls of Mischief crew members trading bars with a cast of hip-hop and soul luminaries. Narrated by a Tribe Called Quest member Ali Shaheed Muhammed - as DJ for functional ocal Oakland radio station K-NOW - the album's story unfolds under his all-seeing eye. Busta Rhymes makes an appearance as the story's villian, Womack, on 'Womack's Lament,' while William Hart of the legendary vocal soul group, the Delfonics, lends his buttery falsetto to the contemplative "Another Side of You." Snoop Dogg drops knowledge on the situation between Stoney and Womack with an ice cold verse on the title track "There is Only Now," and Scarub from Living Legends goes in on "Stone Cold." Souls of Mischief and Adrian Younge have created.
