Planet Asia Planning Three-Part Album Series

Planet Asia is planning a grand entry into the New Year. The

Fresnso, California native is launching a three part album series titled The

Medi-Cali Trilogy, which draws upon the healthy talents of an eclectic

array of artists and producers.

Installment number

one, The Sickness, Part One, features production by Khalil, Jake One,

D-Cyde, and Amp Live, along with guest appearances from Moka Only, Rasco, Flii

Stylz, Mitchy Slick and Killa Ben.

The rapper teams

up with the West Coast Mixtape King, DJ Warrior, in the second part of the trilogy,

The Diagnosis.

Finishing strong,

Planet Asia leaves the best for last: the trilogy's final part, The Medicine,

is produced by Evidence and features the work of Black Thought, Prodigy, Strong

Arm Steady, Dilated Peoples, Defari, Babu, Revolution, and Shake da Mayor.

The three albums

are follow-ups to Asia’s album, The Grand Opening.

Planet Asia formed

his own label, Gold Chain Music, shortly after leaving a deal that went sour

with Interscope Records.

The Sickness,

Part One hits stores Jan. 31, 2006 on Gold Chain Music/Copter Records.
