This summer we were drawn in by the thought-provoking songs Roots crew affiliate Dice Raw leaked, all in promotion of Jimmy’s Back, a concept album taking a critical look at the prison system. It was set to drop in August, but when August came, the album never showed up. Today Okayplayer.com reports that it is still a work in progress, but it’s firmly due out on October 15th. Meanwhile, it shared an outtake from the Jimmy’s Back sessions for free download. On “Runaways” Dice pans away from the world of former prisoners finding their legs in society to study a different central character – a woman chasing dreams in Hollywood, but getting caught up in the rat race. It’s got appropriately cinematic strings and some alluring voiceover narrations in the mix; check it out below.
