Statewide collaborative hip-hop project Amethyst is sending out another round of invitations, gearing up for a second compilation album.

The first album, released in June, featured more than 50 rappers and producers from South Carolina. The group came together in 2019 when organizers, including engineer Quinton Heyward and curator Candice Johnson, brought in dozens of artists to do a two day recording session in Summerville’s Mega Entertainment.

Some of the artists included in this round of invitations include Jexako, Khemo, Bluflame James, Moco Mitch and Producedbydm. 

The group has not given a release date for their next album but recording will take place Dec. 5 and 6 in Spartanburg.
