Camu Tao's First And Final Solo Album Set For Release

Two years ago Tero "Camu Tao" Smith died after a grueling battle with cancer. He was a friend, a son, a brother, a groom-to-be and last but not least a brilliant producer, singer, rapper and entertainer.

This summer, on August 17th, Camu Tao's first and final solo album King Of Hearts will be released on Definitive Jux in collaboration with Fat Possum. King Of Hearts is now available for pre-order on DefinitiveJux.net. When you pre-order King Of Hearts you will have the option to buy an "I Heart Camu" T-shirt.

All proceeds from T-shirt sales will go directly to charity and will ship with packages the week before release date. Limited edition screen prints are available to the first 50 orders!

Prior to his death, Camu Tao formed production crew and side project Central Services with longtime friend and collaborator El-P. The long-awaited 2005 debut EP Forever Frozen in Television Time has gone unreleased until now. In conjunction with the release of King Of Hearts, Definitive Jux is giving away Central Services' EP as a free digital download here.

El-P will be in Camu Tao's hometown of Columbus, OH to host a celebration of his life and the release of King Of Hearts. This event was planned in conjunction with Camu's fiancÚ and is taking place on Monday, August 16th at Skullys. It is free to enter, with a $5 suggested donation. All proceeds will go to the James Cancer Hospital.
