Limited edition of 500 copies on colored vinyl!“Time Being”, originally released in 2003, was the first full-length CYNE LP, following a series of 12” singles for Beta Bodega’s imprint Botanica Del Jibaro. This Project Mooncircle reissue marks the first time that this long out-of-print album has been released on vinyl. This deluxe edition includes a remaster of the original “Time Being” album, previously released singles, instrumentals, and two previously unreleased bonus tracks (“Plain English” and “The Word”), both recorded during the “Time Being” sessions.CYNE’s “Time Being” lineup consisted of MC’s Cise Star and Akin Yai, and producers Speck and Enoch. The four teamed up in Gainesville, Florida in 2001 and recorded “African Elephants”, which was quickly released as a 12” and set the trajectory for the group’s course. “Time Being” was created over the next year and reflects the musical and political environment of the time. Sonically the album showcases a synthesis of obscure samples filtered through the eclectic influences of Speck and Enoch, while Cise Star and Akin Yai’s lyrics cover a wide range, from conceptual, introspective, and spiritual ideas to the anxieties of post-9/11 xenophobia and being a black youth in America.CYNE has continued to release music for more than 15 years, including projects for domestic and international labels such as Project: Mooncircle, Botanica Del Jibaro, P-Vine, Home Tapes, and City Centre Offices. Although the group’s lineup has changed for recent projects, all four members continue to work together, creating a reputation as artists that stay true to the lyrical power and gritty cut and paste aesthetic of classic Hip Hop while managing to explore new sonic territory.Both CYNE and Akin Yai released new material in 2017; CYNE recently announced the second volume of their “Wasteland” beat tape series, while Akin Yai’s new album “Romantica”, primarily produced by Speck and Enoch, was released in April of 2017.“Time Being” is now available on vinyl for the first time. The exclusive remastered deluxe set comes out worldwide on limited green triple vinyl and digital.

Guilty Simpson).” For this special edition rerelease, Coalmine has also added the Divided Souls Ent. & DJ Pain 1 Remix of “Land of the Crooks,” which was only previously made available on the label’s remix compilation, ‘Remineded,’ which first dropped back in January of 2015.

Additional features on LOTC include Roc Marciano, Billy Danze (of M.O.P.), Maffew Ragazino, Loudmouf Choir and the Dilated Junky, DJ Babu. Vinyl is manufactured on classic black discs, and comes complete with the Andres Guzman designed artwork, inspired by the vintage ‘80s movie, ‘Crocodile Dundee.’ Sean Price was Hip-Hop’s Gray Hulk, a barbarian with the pen, with the sharpest of wits.

The prolific MC, producer and musician Oddisee's new album 'The Iceberg' is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. His third release in just 12 months, 'The Iceberg' is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in hip-hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick R&B and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement.

WTYTT??!!?!?!?! is about boundaries and permissions. The artist creating their own license to ill. What it means to answer a call that never comes. How one goes from being told you rap funny to being a canonical rapper. The process of flaw turned idiosyncrasy, turned style. That old transmutation spell. The happening as one perfects tricks and in turn masters magic. To set the elenchus upon itself; to begin a poet and end a rapper. To have agency to reject and mold and sculpt the audience. That is what makes the rapper an exceptional artist, beyond a poet. The rapper is personification of art for art's sake. - MiloWho Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! is the forthcoming full-length from iconoclastic east coast rapper Milo. As one of the emerging voices in 21st-century hip-hop and the modern state of experimental music, his record label Ruby Yacht has become the proper home for his musings, ruminating a culture of sonic beauty and surrealism through wordplay.Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! will release worldwide on August 11, 2017, and will be offered through all streaming platforms and see pressings across various formats (vinyl, CD, cassette). Features come in an abundance of variety, including Los Angeles' homegrown living legend Busdriver, the wild styles of Signor Benedick the Moor, and the universal wisdom of Freestyle Fellowship's Self-Jupiter. New York's Elucid and Youngman take part during the first half of the album, with cohorts Lorde Fredd33 and YCP Beno representing Milwaukee's creative corridor in the second half. With 2015's So The Flies Don't Come sourcing its production foundations from the highly skilled and venerable Kenny Segal, Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! expands the sonic palette and the minds behind each track's beat. Production credits include Milo's alternative music path known as Scallops Hotel, Low End Theory's DJ Nobody, frequent collaborator Kenny Segal, Detroit's Illingsworth, and CoryaYo and Harris Cole, two rising names in Chicago's underground music scene.Where So The Flies Don't Come was the door opening, Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! is the ascension and voyage through new terrain. Found in gardens of intricate tones and soulfully abstract beats, vortexes of unique meaning spiral from Milo's pen. The production elevates the lyricism and is unique from track to track, supplied with the backdrop of varying samples, harp, flute, keys, guitar, electric bass, violin, synth, and many other instrumental elements. It's an adventurous travel from beginning to end, finding abstract connectivity through the philosophical lens, allowing for alteration of perception and the passage of openness. There's an abundance of peaks and valleys, where subtle and panoramic elements coalesce, emerging as one through the symmetry of soulful grooves and tightly laced vocals. The phrasing and word passages derive sonic value that can be felt outside of the deep meanings, pouring out saxophone like tentacle movement that taps into the abstract extension of color and form through wordplay.A small but striking slice of quintessential knowledge from American novelist, essayist, poet, and social warrior James Baldwin initiates Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?!, jumping out of the gates with a sense of boldness that meshes perfectly with the album's overall feel. Lifting into the aerial view and the fifteen pieces on Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! speak the language of experimental hip hop's soul, bringing that energy forward and adding to the evolving chapters of the genre's legacy. Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! will coincide with a nationwide tour, extending Milo's new body of work to audiences all over the States. Stream or purchase Milo's new LP Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! August 11th, 2017 via Ruby Yacht or grab the various physical formats on Milo's forthcoming tour.RELATED ITEMSLittle Brother - The Minstrel Show (2xLP - Gold Vinyl)Little Brother - The Minstrel Show (2xLP - Gold Vinyl)$22.99Shabazz Palaces - Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star (LP + Download Card)Shabazz Palaces - Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star (LP + Download Card)$19.99Karriem Riggins - Alone (LP + Download Card)Karriem Riggins - Alone (LP + Download Card)$14.99Apollo Brown - Grandeur (2xLP - Army Green Vinyl + Download Card)Apollo Brown - Grandeur (2xLP - Army Green Vinyl + Download Card)$25.99Gensu Dean - R.A.W.

Hip hop is an art form and culture that is constantly changing. Musically speaking, new technology and the latest trends have a very real influence on the records released from year to year. It's easy to get caught up in the pop culture hype machine and triplet beats that currently dominate rap. Trends come and go, but the proven elements of hip hop music will continue to be relevant for years to come. For instance, MC's that spit ferocious bars over dusty, head-splitting beats will never go out of style. Enter Detroit's Nolan The Ninja and his latest record, YEN.Released on DJ Soko's imprint, Left Of Center (LOC), YEN picks up where Nolan's earlier projects left off. Nolan, who has been gaining momentum in Detroit and beyond, continues to demonstrate his ability to rip a microphone. Underneath Nolan's agile delivery is an element of storytelling that is sometimes lost in rap. From Nolan's rhymes to guest appearances by Blu, Add-2, Denmark Vessey, and Quelle Chris, there is no shortage of heavy bars on YEN. "Calisthenics," which features Royce Da 5'9, is an exceptional track that showcases Royce's talent and lyrical depth.With stand out production from Black Milk, 14KT, Chanes, Denmark Vessey, Scud One, and Nolan himself, YEN is 17 tracks of non-stop heat that creates the perfect backdrop for Nolan's strong delivery. While certain trends in hip hop move one way, it's clear that Nolan The Ninja is content going the other direction. His new album isn't reliant on catchy hooks, trap beats or the glorification of party culture. Instead, YEN is a combination of heavy bars and head-splitting beats that accurately reflects Nolan's perspective and life experiences. YEN exemplifies the type of music that will remain relevant even after the current trends have faded and something new becomes popular.

Originally released back in 1988 on Cold Chillin’ Records, Big Daddy Kane’s debut LP ‘Long Live The Kane’ dropped during the height of what is now regarded as the golden age of hip hop. Combining simplistic beats, drawing on elements of funk, and Kane’s sharp wordplay, the album cemented both Kane & the Juice Crew’s place in Hip Hop history; and with ‘Ain’t No Half Steppin’ it featured one of THE seminal singles of the genre. Without doubt one of the most influential East Coast rappers to ever do it, paving the way for the likes of Nas, Big L, AZ & Notorious B.I.G amongst others. Nas even ranks ‘Long Live the Kane’ as one of his top 25 albums ever. Omerta Inc. will be bringing the album to its intended format for the first time since 1988. Remastered specifically for vinyl release, this will be the best the record has ever sounded. “I’m a big time fan of Big Daddy Kane. ‘Ain’t No Half Steppin’’ and ‘Raw’ are great songs.” - Nas“Kane’s debut album, Long Live the Kane, stands as a perfect example of what made the Juice Crew so highly revered. Simple, spare, mostlyJames-Brown-based break beats that leave plenty of room for Kane rev up and deliver his lightning-tongued battle raps.” - Complex, #9 Best Old School Rap Records “This album can be credited as one of the most influential LPs of the golden age of Hip Hop. Nas, Pete Rock, AZ, Gang Starr, RZA, Biggie Smalls, and MF DOOM are among some of the acclaimed artists who have made directed references to either this album or Big Daddy Kane in general throughout their music. In 1998, The Source Magazine ranked this project as one of the 1000 Greatest Albums in Hip Hop. The album was certified gold in the year of its release and serves as one of the two projects from Big Daddy Kane that has sold over 500,000 copies.” - The Source “Considered one of the most significant cuts of the “Golden Era,” a time period spanning from the 1980s to 1990s where hip-hop was said to be at its best.” – XXL Magazine

Lando Chill’s new album, “The Boy Who Spoke To The Wind,” is a personal tribute to self actualization, spiritual acceptance and social activism. About the title, Lando says, “The wind is one’s soul. It represents the human spirit and the earth.” Lando Chill is a warrior-poet, a man with one ear to mother nature and one to the plight of humankind. Lando wants to bring the issues of political freedom, police brutality and giving a voice to marginalized communities to the national conversation. Inspired by the Paulo Coelho book, “The Alchemist,” Lando’s new album is about transformation, personally and spiritually. While working on the project, Lando gained a new perspective. He learned that having answers isn’t enough. Musically, this album is a movement forward from his previous work. Collaborating with producer Lasso, bassist Chris Pierce, as well as other key session musicians, the music is unique and intimate. The album harmonizes the internal and external in a cathartic symphony. The instrumentation is unlike anything else, sprawling from classic lo-fi hiphop to high production scoring. The album is as reminiscent of James Blake and Bon Iver as it is of Frank Ocean or Kendrick Lamar. “All is one and one is all. When you speak to your soul, you speak to the world. You speak through love and that’s how you transform.” -Lando Chill

For the Mello Music Group release, Quelle assembled a veritable hip-hop Justice League: Roc Marciano, Homeboy Sandman, Denmark Vessey, Jean Grae, Elzhi, Cavalier, et. al. Then there’s the production, mostly handled by Quelle, but aided by crucial assists from MNDGSN, Iman Omari, Chris Keys, Swarvy, and Alchemist. Despite the preponderance of talent sharing the stage, the guests bend to the world that Quelle created. A darker shade of psychedelia, as if Madvillain gobbled anti-anxiety pills instead of psilocybin. Or maybe a fraternal drunken twin to Open Mike Eagle’s “Dark Comedy.” The title comes from a real-life discussion about the difficulties of consistency. How each of us are subject to both our own bad spirits and bursts of inspiration, those unavoidable Serotonin and dopamine peaks and valleys. Being You is Great is an attempt to catalog those moods. It’s about learning to love, or at least recognize, the best and worst of one’s self. It’s about loneliness and comfort. Learning to hate love and learning to love hate. Sequenced so that extreme confidence follows casual despair, the pendulum swings back and forth, mirroring our own emotions and validating something that Nietszche and Ray Bradbury once claimed: “we have art so we won’t die of truth.” If hip-hop is filled with everymen and superheroes, Quelle Chris has done something quietly radical. This record is almost too human—full of the sublte revelations that only come to you later in life, when you realize that heroes make plenty of errors, and anti-heroes often have merit. It’s not an exuberant celebration of human life, nor is it a politicized condemnation of what got us here. It’s a record with beats that will make you bob your head and tap your feet, and clever lyrics that will make you laugh and scrunch your face. But most of all, it’s a record with a tremendous reserve of empathy. Something that captures the wonder and madness of being human. Something relentlessly honest. Something great.

Limited edition CD!Featuring productions by Large Professor, Ayatollah, Lord Finesse and Psycho Les with guest appearances by Tragedy Khadafi, Sonny Banks, Thirstin Howl The 3rd and many others!In the late 80's and early 90's Powerule stood century as the vanguard of an eventual Latin explosion in Hip Hop. Dominating mix shows and video mediums the Nuyorican experience in hip hop culture finally had their own voice. In 1991 they released their debut album “Volume 1” on Interscope Records that featured Leaders of The New School, Large Professor & Kurious Jorge. Powerule along with 2Pac were one of the first Hip Hop artists signed to Interscope Records.Powerule went on to pave the way for artist like Fat Joe, Kurious, Big Pun, Tony Touch, The Beatnuts and others. Throughout the 1990s they released a string of classic singles such as "Dawn to Dusk”, "Bright Lights Big City", "Rock your Knot Quick", "Heatin up" & “Well Connected” produced by some of Hip Hop’s most celebrated producers: Mark Ronson, Erick Sermon & VIC from The Beatnuts.It's been 26 years since Powerule released a physical album. This is unprecedented in the industry and happens to be their best work to date. The music and the lyricism proves that the Golden Era of Hip Hop still is relevant. A virtual who's who of producers provide the back bone for the album. Large Professor provides a hypnotic melody on “Glorify and Praise” and Prince Powerule delivers an adult contemporary message. When asked how it was working with Large Professor again after 26 years Prince said "I've never been pushed so hard in the booth. It took me a month to really get the flow and the lyrics right. It was exactly what I need to thrust myself back in the game." Production from Psycho Les of the Beatnuts on “718” with verses by himself and Tragedy Khadafi make this Queens anthem bump!! DJ Eclipse provides a resident DJ appeal appearing on 3 songs. The album has a consistent feel capturing the essence of NY hip hop with strong story-telling and jewels of wisdom. Lord Finesse gifts Powerule with a melodic gem on “Get Right” feat Sonny Banks. Ayatollah, Self Service, VIC, Team Demo and others fill out this album but it ever loses its authentic feel..

Wise Intelligent is one of the original founders of Conscious Hiphop, on the mantle alongside of Public Enemy, Mos Def & Lauryn Hill. As a founding member of the classic group Poor Righteous Teachers, he landed a gold album with his debut and ended up selling 2 million plus records between 1989-1996. Add to that being named Top 50 most-slept on emcees of all-time by Complex magazine, a Top 100 Albums of All-Time placement by The Source, and a #5 most-underrated emcee award from About.com and you have the understanding of where many of today’s emcees styles come from. But more importantly were the terms upon which Wise Intelligent laid his foundation: Principle above profit, community over self. Wise Intelligent is one of the premiere voices for Black consciousness in music today. Enter Gensu Dean. Currently based in Austin, Texas, the analog producer has laid rock solid sonic foundations for everyone from Grammy award winner and friend David Banner to Cali-agent Planet Asia. Add a host of Hiphop who’s whos like Large Professor, CL Smooth, Ol Dirty Bastard, Roc Marciano, Denmark Vessey, Homeboy Sandman, Diamond D, and to Shady Records signee Conway The Machine into Dean’s production credits and you’ll start to get the picture. His sound is analog, ranging from MPC3000 to SP1200. Gensu is a one of a kind, back to basics, head nodding, beat making, smash mouth producer with as many chambers as Khufu at Cheops. Now the two legends have teamed up in Atlanta to record a new album together over the past 6 months. From there Gensu brought the record home to Austin for some preliminary mixing, then flew out to the equally legendary DITC Studios in the Bronx to mix the record with Parks. After a quick flight back to Texas and sessions with Jimi Bowman at Klearlight studios in Dallas, the masters were complete and a new project ready for the masses: “Game of Death.” Rooted in Universal Science, the album takes dead aim at mediocre, dumbed down, manufactured rap while treating Music as the weapon it is. This is cultural warfare bridging the gap from Roxanne & Biz Markie to Jay Electronica & Erykah Badu. Bending time & space, Gensu & Wise take listeners through history with amazingly wide-eyed clarity. With statements as straight-forward as “Your shit aint Hiphop if it’s corporate” there is no missing the message of self-determination. This is the type of liberation that starts with your mind and is more about what you shed than what you add on. Somebody say Amen.

This record is a collaborative between MarQ Spekt and experimental, proto-new wave musician Gary Wilson (Stones Throw). It’s rare that you get the opportunity to work with the actual artist rather than just sampling his records. Gary opened his vaults and provided sample soundscapes. Some of these instrumentals date back to 1973 and may have been heard before. Others may not. The ending result is a pure creative expression and meshes Hip Hop, Psychedelic, Jazz, Funk…. Soak up the vibrations and Enjoy! This is the kind of idea that makes youb enjoy the fringes of rap more than what’s in the spotlight. With that said, “Broken Mazes” sounds weirder on paper than it does in the headphones. Gary Wilson is an awesomely strange dude with some outré music under his belt, but for this project Spekt wisely sticks with the more accessible sides of Wilson’s catalog. It’s all breezy jazz-funk with some vague psychedelic touches for extra oomph, a wide-open field for Spekt to run his free-flowing bars. The result is relaxed and enjoyable, if at times a bit unfocused – kinda like a good open-ended improv session by a talented jazz band.

Following last year’s out-of-nowhere debut album, The Du-Rites (an NYC funk duo comprised of multi-instrumentalists J-Zone and Pablo Martin) return with a new double-sided snack, “Bite It” b/w “Bocho’s Groove”.Individually, J-Zone and Pablo are known for their exploits as a hip-hop producer/MC and the guitarist in the current line-up of the legendary Tom Tom Club, respectively. But as they continue their roll as The Du-Rites with this release and their forthcoming sophomore LP, Greasy Listening, their divergent backgrounds continue to cook up a brand of funk that’s entirely their own. “Bite It” - with drummer J-Zone’s numerous (and super funky) open drum breaks and organ riffs and Pablo’s blistering psychedelic guitar solo - is an example of hip-hop and psych throwing a greasy funk party and The Meters show up to crash it. The flip, “Bocho’s Groove,” raises the tempo for the dance floor, but the funk is no less heavy. Zone keeps the sticks flying with the b-boys and girls in mind, comps with the organ and peppers in his trademark dialogue cuts, while Pablo’s Fender Rhodes and guitar work evoke the funkier moments of ‘70s cop show scores.The Du-Rites self-titled debut LP (on ReDefinition Records) sold through its limited 500 pressing in one month. This single has been pressed in the same quantity. If you snooze, you lose, dig?!

“I just use turntables, vinyl and a MPC, that's it. I always come back to the basics with production because it forces me to be creative. Giving a sense to a melody or a rhythm is a powerful thing and it doesn't happen every day.” Belgium based producer, Koss can be considered a hip-hop purist.His previously released body of work has emulated late 80’s / early 90’s heaters producing EP’s for Craig G (Juice Crew), AG (Showbiz & AG) and El Da Sensei (Artifacts). Now Below System Records (Masta Ace, Phat Kat, Chuuwee & Trizz) will be releasing his official full-length production album entitled “Born To Live”.Whereas the previous EPs was one MC per release, the forthcoming album boasts an all-star line-up of spitters including Torae, Large Professor, Masta Ace, Keith Murray, Blaq Poet, Ruste Juxx, J-Live and Craig G. When asked why he decided to have different features on each track Koss related “I wanted this album to express life and my passion for the Hip-Hop culture. My aim was to choose MCs that no matter what is in style at the moment always stay consistent and remember where they came from.”One of these MCs is the legendary J-Live who appears on the second official single “Straight Up Pretenders.” Speaking on that meeting Koss recalls “I met him in Cologne, (Germany) years ago at my man Saim Smith’s crib. After we were done building and the song was recorded, I had to have Saim do the scratches for the hooks.”The true school vibe of the album even extends to the remixers that Koss selected. “Born To Live” CD and digital editions will feature track remixes courtesy of K-Def (Ghostface Killah, Tragedy Khadafi), Large Professor (Main Source, Nas) and close friends 12 Finger Dan and B-Base.

Cold Busted Records presents “Omnipotent” by Lanzo.Chicago’s Carington Pierre, also known as Lanzo, has bestowed evidence of his cosmic hip hop beatology to the Cold Busted label in the form of a new album, Omnipotent. Previously recording for BLVNT Records and the Natural Selection label, Lanzo specializes in a style of experimental hip hop that draws from boom-bap, soulful downtempo, and atmospheres that lean toward the celestial. Lanzo and his trusty MPC 1000 have been actively producing since 2008 and Omnipotent confirms his upward trajectory, presenting fifteen tasty sonic morsels that groove in a confident but abstract fashion.Highlights include “Comfort Zone” which envelopes a swinging rhythm in dreamy strings, distant voices, and rolling bass, and the odd but appealing “Gutter Balls”, featuring some deliciously drunken synths. There’s also the melancholy quiet storm of “Colours”, “Against The Wall” and its heavily processed beat magic, and the loping sci-fi jazz of “Between Friends”. Omnipotent is a heady listen, displaying textures and swirls that accentuate the sturdiness of its drum beats. Lanzo has provided a distinctive soundtrack that’s ready-made for day blazing or night groovin’.

Seattle rapper/producer Grieves emerged in 2007 with his independently released album, Irreversible. In the years that followed, he wholly devoted himself to touring, writing and recording, honing his craft and defining his sound. His 2011 Rhymesayers debut, Together/Apart, was a career landmark and a testament to his growth in both, his writing and delivery, and this progression was re-affirmed by his follow-up, Winter & The Wolves, in 2014. Now, after three years, Grieves prepares to reveal further evolution with the release of his new full-length album, Running Wild. On Running Wild, Grieves teamed up with Swedish producer Chords. Together, the two have produced a modernized sound that is lush and intoxicating, pairing punchy drums with thick layers of synths and warm bass lines, all accented by soulful keys, horns, or guitars. Whether dark and moody, or upbeat and jazzy, Grieves navigates and complements the soundscape, penning verses that range from vulnerable and confessional, to fun and carefree. Grieves is most certainly breaking boundaries, truly running wild, all while remaining honest to himself.

Hip hop is an art form and culture that is constantly changing. Musically speaking, new technology and the latest trends have a very real influence on the records released from year to year. It's easy to get caught up in the pop culture hype machine and triplet beats that currently dominate rap. Trends come and go, but the proven elements of hip hop music will continue to be relevant for years to come. For instance, MC's that spit ferocious bars over dusty, head-splitting beats will never go out of style. Enter Detroit's Nolan The Ninja and his latest record, YEN.Released on DJ Soko's imprint, Left Of Center (LOC), YEN picks up where Nolan's earlier projects left off. Nolan, who has been gaining momentum in Detroit and beyond, continues to demonstrate his ability to rip a microphone. Underneath Nolan's agile delivery is an element of storytelling that is sometimes lost in rap. From Nolan's rhymes to guest appearances by Blu, Add-2, Denmark Vessey, and Quelle Chris, there is no shortage of heavy bars on YEN. "Calisthenics," which features Royce Da 5'9, is an exceptional track that showcases Royce's talent and lyrical depth.With stand out production from Black Milk, 14KT, Chanes, Denmark Vessey, Scud One, and Nolan himself, YEN is 17 tracks of non-stop heat that creates the perfect backdrop for Nolan's strong delivery. While certain trends in hip hop move one way, it's clear that Nolan The Ninja is content going the other direction. His new album isn't reliant on catchy hooks, trap beats or the glorification of party culture. Instead, YEN is a combination of heavy bars and head-splitting beats that accurately reflects Nolan's perspective and life experiences. YEN exemplifies the type of music that will remain relevant even after the current trends have faded and something new becomes popular.

Headlock from Tucson, Arizona, drops his first release for the Hit+Run imprint.Born from swampy house party revolutions in Portland and meeting somewhere at the intersection of concept art & hip-hop, rap duo Headlock are a well-loved slice of the Tucson music community. Triceratop plays the beats, Illslur puts down the raps, and together they’ve created “shredrap” a sound from dollar bin records, abandoned effects pedals, thrifted drum machines, heavy psych borrows and a VCR. They sound like a broken mirror without the 7 years of bad luck. While the fuzzy, almost abrasive production screams intensity, Headlock draw from wide inspiration and land somewhere near the intersection of Ill Communication x Ex Military. Headlock’s new self-produced six-song EP “Gang Nativity” is released worldwide on via Hit+Run. Available on limited-edition first pressing of Aquamarine colored 10” vinyl (comes with an iron-on patch), hi-bias compact cassette tape (includes a 1” round button), plus the digital download featuring an exclusive bonus track “Bark Roar” not available on either physical format.

Lando Chill’s new album, “The Boy Who Spoke To The Wind,” is a personal tribute to self actualization, spiritual acceptance and social activism. About the title, Lando says, “The wind is one’s soul. It represents the human spirit and the earth.” Lando Chill is a warrior-poet, a man with one ear to mother nature and one to the plight of humankind. Lando wants to bring the issues of political freedom, police brutality and giving a voice to marginalized communities to the national conversation. Inspired by the Paulo Coelho book, “The Alchemist,” Lando’s new album is about transformation, personally and spiritually. While working on the project, Lando gained a new perspective. He learned that having answers isn’t enough. Musically, this album is a movement forward from his previous work. Collaborating with producer Lasso, bassist Chris Pierce, as well as other key session musicians, the music is unique and intimate. The album harmonizes the internal and external in a cathartic symphony. The instrumentation is unlike anything else, sprawling from classic lo-fi hiphop to high production scoring. The album is as reminiscent of James Blake and Bon Iver as it is of Frank Ocean or Kendrick Lamar. “All is one and one is all. When you speak to your soul, you speak to the world. You speak through love and that’s how you transform.” -Lando Chill

Wise Intelligent is one of the original founders of Conscious Hiphop, on the mantle alongside of Public Enemy, Mos Def & Lauryn Hill. As a founding member of the classic group Poor Righteous Teachers, he landed a gold album with his debut and ended up selling 2 million plus records between 1989-1996. Add to that being named Top 50 most-slept on emcees of all-time by Complex magazine, a Top 100 Albums of All-Time placement by The Source, and a #5 most-underrated emcee award from About.com and you have the understanding of where many of today’s emcees styles come from. But more importantly were the terms upon which Wise Intelligent laid his foundation: Principle above profit, community over self. Wise Intelligent is one of the premiere voices for Black consciousness in music today. Enter Gensu Dean. Currently based in Austin, Texas, the analog producer has laid rock solid sonic foundations for everyone from Grammy award winner and friend David Banner to Cali-agent Planet Asia. Add a host of Hiphop who’s whos like Large Professor, CL Smooth, Ol Dirty Bastard, Roc Marciano, Denmark Vessey, Homeboy Sandman, Diamond D, and to Shady Records signee Conway The Machine into Dean’s production credits and you’ll start to get the picture. His sound is analog, ranging from MPC3000 to SP1200. Gensu is a one of a kind, back to basics, head nodding, beat making, smash mouth producer with as many chambers as Khufu at Cheops. Now the two legends have teamed up in Atlanta to record a new album together over the past 6 months. From there Gensu brought the record home to Austin for some preliminary mixing, then flew out to the equally legendary DITC Studios in the Bronx to mix the record with Parks. After a quick flight back to Texas and sessions with Jimi Bowman at Klearlight studios in Dallas, the masters were complete and a new project ready for the masses: “Game of Death.” Rooted in Universal Science, the album takes dead aim at mediocre, dumbed down, manufactured rap while treating Music as the weapon it is. This is cultural warfare bridging the gap from Roxanne & Biz Markie to Jay Electronica & Erykah Badu. Bending time & space, Gensu & Wise take listeners through history with amazingly wide-eyed clarity. With statements as straight-forward as “Your shit aint Hiphop if it’s corporate” there is no missing the message of self-determination. This is the type of liberation that starts with your mind and is more about what you shed than what you add on. Somebody say Amen.
