Portland rapper Aminé is releasing a new project called TWOPOINTFIVE this Friday, November 5. The full-length mixtape will include the rapper’s recent single “Charmander.”
In 2018, Aminé released a project called ONEPOINTFIVE, referring to it at the time as an “EPLPMixtapeAlbum.” The tape arrived between the rapper’s 2017 debut Good for You and his 2020 sophomore LP Limbo. In a recent interview with Apple Music, Aminé described the process behind TWOPOINTFIVE as looser than that of his previous full-length Limbo.
"I worked a lot on Limbo," he said. "It was almost mentally tiring for me because it was a lot of rewriting of verses and a lot of trying to construct this body of work that really hit a certain like line that I was trying to hit. And for this new stuff, I'm just trying to have fun. I don't care what anyone thinks."
Aminé explained the meaning behind his two mixtape titles. "The POINTFIVE projects are the breaks in between albums," Aminé said in a press release, "where I give myself the freedom to make music without expectations, focusing instead of spontaneity and the best of what comes from stream of conscious creation, which is why they arrive unexpectedly without a long rollout."
Aminé has also released a silly trailer for the project, where several versions of himself exit a blue car and line up to announce the mixtape's title - all with a high-pitched voice reminiscent of the aliens from Toy Story.
