One of the West Coast's most popular drunken emcees, Tha Alkaholiks, have announced that their next group album is set to be their last.See Also:
The group, which originally formed in 1992 by member E-Swift, Tash and J. Ro., has released four albums over their career not to mention a long list of guest appearances on others' albums. With their last album titled Firewater almost upon us, E-Swift believes it has made them up their game for their finale.
"It's the right time to go out with a bang," says E-Swift. "Knowing it's our last album has made us much more focused, knowing we have to sum it all up right here, right now and the feeling is great. We owe it to the fans to put everything into one last album and blow it up."
With a solid reputation for making quality music, Tash feels it's a good time to "bow out gracefully and exit on top."
Moving forward seems to be what the trio is planning to do as their goals have become different since they first came into the game.
"We all have different goals and things we want to do as individuals," J. Ro said. "So it only makes sense for us to move forward and find new challenges. It's an exciting time for all three of us."
For all the Alkaholik fans, this is not the last time you will hear new Alkaholik material. The group members are not releasing any furthur group albums, but do plan to work toward solo projects.
E-Swift will be teaming with producer Madlib for a joint album, Tash will follow-up his Rap Life album while J. Ro will do his solo album as well.
Their final album, Firewater, will be released on Waxploitation/Koch Records in early 2005, a "best of" CD and music video collection titled will drop late this year and a national farewell party tour will kick off in 2005 to coincide with the release of their final album.
