Here is the new artwork from Joe’s new digital only release Escape Route. As you can see he is following a series from the album Padded Room & Halfway House, and all of this work will accumulate to his album The Great Escape. Escape Route will be dropping tomorrow on Amalgam Digital, which is coincidentally the same day as the Slaughterhouse release. You will hear Wale, Slaughterhouse & Young Chris on the guest verse aspect. When it comes to production you will hear 9th Wonder, J. Cardim, Chad West & Streetrunner.
