New music from one of Ypsilanti’s finest, 14KT, off of his upcoming free download project, Nowalataz. The project is a batch of Donuts-inspired beats from 2006. If you like what you hear, you can catch KT (along with Buff1) opening for Mayer Hawthorne this fall across the country, check those dates out here.
WORDS FROM 14KT!
"Whatupdoe? First off, I must say THANK YOU for supporting me and my music!!
“Here it is… a project I unofficially had done since 2006. It started when James Yancey a.k.a. J Dilla passed that February. To cope with the death of my favorite producer, who I liked to call my unofficial “musical mentor,” I started making ‘donuts’ …uncontrollably. I never planned to release any of the material out of respect for Dilla & his craft. I’ve shared some of the music with others, in which they would repeatedly ask me to hear it, so I decided to put a little something together and make it official. JUST FOR YA’LL.
This is a collection of beats created about 3 years ago. Some ‘donuts’ style, some just around that era of 14KT beats. “Now & Laters” were always a favorite candy of mine. I used to go to Mindell’s Pharmacy in Ypsilanti back in the day and buy ALL of them. Sadly, I even stole change from my grandma’s (RIP) purse for them. They are addictive, yet fun to eat… something I found mutual when making music at the time. Ironically, I fell back in love with “Nowalataz” around this era (ask my homey Sarah “Merk Merk,” haha). Enjoy.“Sincerely, 14KT

WORDS FROM THE HERO
AML is hands down the most slept on group of Recording Artists and Producers in the United States. Thank God Cats like Kt, Buff & Haircut (mayor Hawthorne) are pushing so hard and constantly slamming cats thin e heads with classic after Classic. My Biggest Compliment N the greatest Advice I can give you is: GO Back! AND go hard. If this is the 1st time you are hearing 14KT or Buff1 or Nowon etc, Make sure you SEARCH out their Entire Catalog as Solo Artists and as A Group ATHLETIC MIC LEAGUE cus these cats have a Long list of Classics since the 90's!!! Peace to you cats for real. It's an absolute Honor working beside you!
