Founding member of the Gang Starr Foundation Big Shug is getting ready to release his new solo album I.M. 4-Eva. The project entails more than just an album though, peep this bit from the press release:

In addition to the 17 all new studio cuts Brick Records has presented a timeless package; a hard back, 36 page book chronicling The True History of Gang Starr as told by Big Shug, plus anecdotes from his 20+ year career, rare never before seen vintage photos and more.

Now that’s how you interest people in a physical release of a record in 2012. Both the album and the book are released on on July 24th. The track list for the record is below.
