The final word on Educated Consumers.

Posted: 21st February 2013 by Cole in Educated Consumers Posts

After more than a decade of creating rap music that honors and advances the art, Jason and I have decided to end Educated Consumers.

So many people have been so supportive in so many ways that it would be impossible to thank all of you individually here, so… thank all of you.

The entire Educated Consumers discography is available digitally via Bandcamp. Our last three albums are available on  iTunes (please leave a review!) The good people at CrushKill Recordings and Strange Famous Records also carry some goodies. CD’s and vinyl can be purchased by messaging me on the Facebook page. Of course, you’re always encouraged to bootleg music until every artist spirals into poverty and dies a slow, lonely death before reemerging as a horde of zombies more concerned with brains than coins.

For those of you who are still interested in my music/existential ramblings/bad jokes, I will be focusing on the Broken Clock material which can be found via Facebook, Twitter, and Bandcamp.

I’ve never been good at hellos and I’m even worse at goodbyes, so I’ll leave the last words to you in the comments.

Please support

The good people of CrushKill Recordings also run the Eyedea (ReyeP) website

They sell Educated Consumers material as well as music and merch from the other CrushKill artists. All the money goes back to the label or to assist Eyedea’s mother in covering costs for the annual dedication shows.

On Friday October 19, Seez Mics of Educated Consumers will square off against Pittsburgh’s own Dos Noun at the Blasfome store in the Smash Mouth Poetry Slam.

Seez will be repping the ‘Skins with lines like, “The Redskins are family that proves blood runs thicker than an $8 Budweiser.”


The following night, catch Educated Consumers rocking in Cleveland with Doc Remedy of Prhymal Rage and Blueprint for a dual CD release party.
