** Brainwash's 2018 Release **

The sequel to 2006's "Amnesia"


" A M Y G D A L A "

Following a very long, 11 year hiatus from the game - BRAINWASH returned to the rap game with his long-awaited, very highly-anticipated, brand-new album release - "AMYGDALA"  - in 2018...     Including 21 brand-new hard-hitting tracks - some of which featured epic appearances by The Black Rhino, Prodeje (South Central Cartel), The Narrator RBX, Nutt-So (Outlawz), MC Eiht and Domino  -  BRAINWASH made one helluvan impact on the game that he left behind in 2007, after flooding the game with a plethora of dope releases recorded between 2004 and 2007,  (following a return from his 1st 5 year hiatus from rap from 1999

- 2004), following some criminal cases that Brainwash caught, that led him to having to do some time for a while).

"AMYGDALA"  was the best work to date by BRAINWASH...   This 2018 album brought real "boom bap"  hip-hop back and

has 21 super dope new slammers =  1 intro, 3 interludes and 17 super dope new songs!   Most of the production was done

by Brainwash himself, as most of his projects are...    With 5 tracks done by Brainwash's late mentor and brother, the

super-producer The Black Rhino!   It's an incredible album, with the major hits "We Can Get It On" (feat. Nutt-So)

and "The Golden Age" (feat. Prodeje)...    

When Brainwash was working on this new record, starting in 2017, he wound-up making 50 dope new tracks.   By 2018,

when he released the album - he boiled down the dopest 21 of them that best fit the album's energy and those became

the "Amygdala" album - with the remainder of the songs being archived for the time being.   18 of those leftovers wound

up coming out as the underground accompaniment CD release, "Purgatory", which is another super dope release too!

The rest got archived into the Sykadelik vaults and will remain there for another underground release to follow.

This album is available here on CD and digital download, and is also available on both formats anywhere and

everywhere else that dope music is sold and streamed too!   Make sure you get yourself a copy of this instant

classic!   And watch out for the new album by Brainwash, "Acetylene", coming real soon in 2020 - which is the

conclusion of this particular Sykadelik trilogy!!!
