Product Details


Let's face it in 2010 EVERY compact disc pressed is "limited edition" so we'll spare you with that song and dance. Hopefully by now you know how we operate here at Fly Casual Creative, we press a bunch, you buy them early or you pay big time later on ebay when they are out of print. Those are the rules.

So here's our new one. Fly Casualties; a response to the never ending emails, tweets and formsprings (?!?) from the fans demanding more material. This collection serves as a finishing bridge between Esoteric's string of solo releases and the upcoming 7L & Esoteric full length 1212. So Eso took a slight break from his diligent recording schedule with 7L (their first official group endeavour since 2006's A New Dope) and assembled this 25 track grab bag of goodies.

Alongside all new never released tracks stand alternative mixes, original versions and edits that offer the listener a rare glimpse into the creative, always expanding and prolific mind of Esoteric, highlighting his work ethic as a producer and arranger. He handles most of the production duties but is backed by career long partner 7L, fellow East Coast Avenger DC the Midi Alien, DJ Opal and Random aka Mega Ran.

The CD comes packaged in a four panel fold out wallet with liner notes from the 'Dactyl himself. Here's a sneak peak...

"At your request, I've released a small percentage of what was sitting around the Pterolab for the past 5 years or so. Please enjoy this arrangement of never before heard songs, stray vocal takes, odd remixes, and a bunch of bass, hiss, and sludge... you know, hip-hop.


ps - I'm wrapping up the first 7L & Esoteric album in over 4 years with DJ George. The album is called 1212. The drums are hard, the lyrics are brutal, and you should have it in your hands before the fall... true story."

Enjoy Fly Casualties and prepare for 1212.

Comment: To the dude who used the moniker 'nah' "i mean its hard to support a dude who said, and I forget the track, but, he said it: "I like my beats stripped like the golden banana." What you didn't know is that the Golden banana is a strip club outside of boston.

Comment: From the 7LES Fan Email: Over here at the 7l & Esoteric company store we swear by authenticity and being up front with our patrons. We've given you a lot of music over the past 14-15 years…some give us credit for starting a few trends here and there, both positive and negative. But 1212 is not about that. 1212 is about being honest with yourself and accepting your shortcomings. 1212 is about loosening your grip and extending a hand. 1212 is about finding yourself and maybe finding that special someone else along your journey. There won't be many dry-eye moments while listening to 1212. If you define "cool" as feeling vulnerable and perhaps crestfallen, 1212 will make you feel like the Fonz. 1212 is about confronting your demons. It is also about eating your demons, puking them up and then throwing them in a fiery pit of death and dying. 1212 is about snatching your boss by the neck and collapsing his windpipe. It is also about taking the closest weapon and beating your opponent to a bloody pulp. 1212 sums up everything we want out of a rap album: hell, aggression, and truth. Sartre's hell is other people, our hell is other rap guys. We brought some along for 1212: Inspectah Deck, Sadat X, Ill Bill, Evidence, Alchemist, Celph Titled, Vinnie Paz, Statik Selektah, Reef the Lost Cauze, and even good ol' 7L. That's right yall, 7L is back for the first 7LES album in 4 years…and he's making sure Eso isn't rapping about his dog or his baby. You guys wanna hype up your “darkest album yet?" You wanna start a buzz for your "bringin' it back to the essence" album? Well, so do we! Get ready for 1212. We, much like you, have come to save the game and crush the bullshit on the radio. 7l & Esoteric - 1212…coming this fall on Fly Casual!

Comment: i mean its hard to support a dude who said, and I forget the track, but, he said it: "I like my beats stripped like the golden banana." - rappers use too many homo lines as is, and I really can't listen to these dudes but, this is just too much; it's not ill, think of something else... He does–sometimes–say some ill shit though–sometimes; and I understand he mainly said it because of his flow/rhyme pattern; BUT, content>flow, always

Comment: I can understand how some people don't feel the weirder experimental solo stuff from Eso - Personally I like it as much as the harder AOTP styles - it just shows his range as an artist and seriously the guy puts in work - this CD proves it - he makes like 5 versions or mixes per song - plus is that news about 1212 serious?! I cannot wait to hear that - that will be top 5 albums this year along with the Blacastan and the Roc Marcberg CDs Eso forget the haters and give it coming man

Comment: I don't know or listen to much Esoteric, but this is dope regardless. That dick face down below from Seattle needs to get a life, I've seen comments from you hating on a few emcees on this site, get a fuckin life, I usually don't leave reviews but reading your ignorant remarks has inspired me. Fuck Seattle, I think you're depressed cause all it does is rain in Seattle. Seattle sucks my dick, come to L.A. and see if you can hang for a day bitch. I think you need to become part of that incredible suicide percentage and get on top of that space needle and jump you fuckin loser. Words to all, if your nuts haven't dropped yet, don't leave comments. Stop hating on everything you don't like and go listen to whatever you do like. Probably Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, you punk pussy.

Comment: Yooo.........After I saw the video where Esoteric said that he and 7L were gonna be back on their real, original 7L & Esoteric shit, I almost shit my drawers...Becuz this is the shit that originally got me really diggin their music. Can't wait for 1212, can't wait for the grimy ass 7L beats, the grimy/murder death kill lyrics from Eso! You know, the shit they always did before "A New Dope." I always thought 7L's production was among the best, so keep bringin it muthafuckas!!
