After a six year hiatus, Chino XL is finally returning to the rap game with the release of RICANstruction: The Black Rosary on September 25th. A two-disc album with features from Tech N9ne, Big Pun (unreleased verse), Immortal Technique, Sick Jacken, Travis Barker, Horseshoe Gang, Rakaa Iriscience, Roc Marciano and more. Check a piece of the press release below and hit the jump for the tracklisting.

Those lucky enough to be artistes have a unique forum for exorcising their demons: demons many of us can also relate to and for Chino, “RICANstruction: The Black Rosary” is most certainly an exorcism. On the 35-track set he tackles difficult subjects such as the abuse he suffered as a child, his resulting fractured personal relationships, his own daughter’s battle with cancer and a past suicide attempt, amongst other things. While crafting these emotionally draining songs, Chino realized that he was helping himself and others by recording them. “It’s a complete unbottling of a lot of stuff, things that I probably had suppressed,” he explains. “The human psyche has the ability and the power to do that in order to keep it functioning. I felt that it was time to let most of it out so I could move on and get past some of those issues. Whilst on tour last year, I realized how many people I connected to when I expressed a lot of those more painful, emotional songs. It seemed like a lot of folks really needed to hear them. I can learn from that to help them relate so they can also get past what they had going on. I realized that’s part of my journey.”

    Hahaha props on this Lou, I'm going to check this out and get back to Here to Save You All, as I still never got round to it the last time his name popped up, even though I've heard some tracks from him.

    This is the perfect opportunity for sleepers like me though, the beats should hopefully be current, which I think helps you to get into an artist and go back to discover their discog.

    I'm with you on the features, but a 35 track LP needed some, I guess. There's a lot of solo tracks on the first disc alone. Be interesting to see how he handles the deeper subjects and whether the disc is listenable & enjoyable, at the same time. Definitely tackling some tough issues to put it lightly.
