Dedicated fans have been waiting long for Dreamville artist Omen’s debut Elephant Eyes. Throughout the making of this album, the Chicago storyteller has been through many transitions as an artist. For listeners, it will be interesting to hear how his sounds and production has developed since his 2011 release Afraid Of Heights, which featured the likes of Shalonda, Eric Roberson, J.Cole and Kendrick Lamar. Watch Dreamville’s segment of ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ above in anticipation for the album.
Omen released a J.Dilla tribute project in 2012 titled ‘A Glorious Cool’ and was featured on Dreamville’s mixtape ‘Revenge Of The Dreamers’ which featured his tracks, Motion Picture, Henny Flow and a guest verse on ‘Bitchez’. He also had a hand in production on 2014 Forest Hills Drive track “Apparently.” Omen is has held his own in the game for a while andnow it’s him time to truly shine. Look out for Turn Down King’s Interscope debut release of Elephant Eyes on Tuesday July 21st 2015.
