King MagneticTiming Is Everything
He has worked with the likes of Portishead's Geoff Barrow, Atmosphere's Slug, Immortal Technique, Wu Tang Clan's Cappadonna, Jedi Mind Tricks, Chino XL, Edo G, DJ Revolution, and MANY MORE.
His ""Everything's A Gamble"" mix tape series, is a precursor to his official debut album and has allowed him to tour the US and Europe extensively.
""Timing Is Everything"" takes you to a time when hip-hop artists' rapped about struggles and triumphs that they personally experienced...if your lyrics and presence weren't up-to-par you got kicked off stage, the street corner or even punched in the face. Recorded at 9th's Wonder's Bright Lady Studios in North Carolina, the album has a classic 90's boom-bap feel without sounding dated. Fuelled by street tales and production from Marco Polo, 9th Wonder, DJ Premier, Astronote, Amp and others, the legendary Peter Humphreys provides a warm yet crisp sound scape that keeps the listener wanting more. With a total of 19 songs, Magnetic only calls on Jadakiss,
Rapsody, Reef the Lost Cauze and GQ to lend verses on 3 of the tracks.
Smif N Wessun, Big Shug, SID of Slipknot and Block McCloud help out a few hooks
to round out the line up. It's been a long time since you could put on an album
and just press play...it's that time again.
