Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
“Live From The First”, the debut album by Pearl Gates is a sonic evolutionary process, chronicling his journey from the streets to the rap game.The stage is set in the trenches and as it gradually shifts to a more elevated space and state of consciousness, the common thread revealing itself throughout the process is growth. The music is engaging; from gritty and ruthless sounds on “Rocks Right Now” to a virtuous and energizing vibe on “Elevate”, Gates delivers a welcoming, well balanced musical experience. “Live From The First” is brash, honest, thought provoking and highly conceptual while providing insight on everyday life in one of NYC's more bustling and enterprising communities, Washington Heights.The first in the album title refers to the nick-name for 181st street in upper Manhattan where Pearl Gates comes from. “Most of the tracks on the album revolve around stories and experiences from the block” he reveals. That doesn’t necessarily mean all of the stories are about street life however. Gates, who is also an accomplished singer, also manages to incorporate his soulful hooks into the songs without sacrificing the Hip-Hop elements of each track. Gates says “my father was a singer and I inherited his talent of perfect pitch. I use it to flesh out my music but lately I’ve been asked to contribute hooks by Kool G Rap, Masta Ace, Wordsworth and other artists, which is flattering”.Some notable features who appear on “Live From The First” include Torae, Geechi Suede (of Camp Lo) and Cassidy. Speaking on the latter Pearl Gates revealed “I didn’t expect Cassidy to be on the album. We have a mutual friend who is a producer and one night he brought him through just to hang out. Cassidy heard the track and said, you want me to get on this? That was all love”. Other up and coming artists will appear on the album as well.In the last few years Pearl Gates has been making notable music and appearances. His "Diamond Mind" EP (2015) was praised by media outlets including The Source, HipHopDX, 2DopeBoyz and Respect Magazine. The "Play This" EP (2016) with fellow Washington Heights rapper Syll also received likes from media and DJs/radio shows including DJ Premier and Drake’s OVO Sound Radio. Gates also completed tours of Europe and North America with eMC and PRhyme.

Genre:Hip Hop
Limited edition vinyl!Legendary Detroit emcee Phat Kat and Berlin bred DJ/Producer DJ Dister present their new album “The S.O.S. Project”. Standing for "So Old School" Dister's soulful but dusty-break laden beats (which defined the J Dilla/Slum Village era) provides the perfect backdrop for Kat's fiery 90's honed flow. Speaking on how they linked up Dister said "we initially recorded a track called "Rappin Ass Rapper's" on my album Consistent Knockouts (2015). The vibe was so dope that we decided to do a whole project together."The first evidence of this chemistry is in the single "Revolt For Change" a scathing social commentary as Kat says is "about police brutality excessive force and how our citizens are being treated like animals and the current situation our country and community is in." Other tracks salute The "D" (as his home city is known) and retrace his personal Hip-Hop history ("The Monument" feat DJ Dez) or relate tales from the crime side ("Shots", "Storm").An emcee's emcee Phat Kat (aka Ronnie Euro) initially came up in the mid 90's as part of a duo with J Dilla (then known as Jay Dee) known as 1st Down. Though legal troubles halted the group's momentum, Kat and Dilla collaborated consistently over the following years. Kat's recorded output also includes work with Black Milk, Slum Village, Elzhi, Guilty Simpson, Obie Trice and Flying Lotus. He has also toured worldwide including frequent trips to Europe to perform.With a resume that stretches back fifteen years, DJ Dister was a strong part of the Berlin, Germany true-school Hip-Hop scene. In 2005 as part of the Born 2 Roll crew, he helped to organize the Born 2 Roll night, a monthly event at the Cassiopeia Club. This popular event drew thousands of attendees for over a decade and also drew performances from such names as KRS-One and De La Soul. He released two albums as a producer including the debut ROLL WIT DIS (2013) which featured appearances from Masta Ace, Kool G Rap, KRS-One, Fashawn and others. 2015’s Consistent Knockouts featured Jeru The Damaja, eMC, Phat Kat and others. Dister now resides in Los Angeles, CA and is working on several EP's and albums currently.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
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.

Exlcusively available at hhv.de! Limited edition of 100 copies only!Only one copy per customer!In 1998, when Constant Deviants were fresh on the scene, the duo released “Can’t Stop,” an ode to hip-hop that put the duo of M.I. and DJ Cutt on the map. The single served as the foundation for Constant Deviants’ now loyal fan base, a swarm of supporters that eventually led Constant Devi-ants to form their own label, SIX2SIX Records. Now, 14 years later and with their latest album “Diamond” scheduled for release this fall, Constant Deviants are revisiting the track with a sequel, of sorts, fittingly titled “Won’t Stop.” “The song is a letter to hip-hop,” explains M.I., “and since it’s Part 2 of the record we put out in ’98, the point was to capture the feeling of NYC in 2012.” Musically, they strike a perfect balance between the two eras, with DJ Cutt’s crackling, soulful chops and driving drums, and M.I. at his most earnest – and strongest lyrically – recounting the story of how he fell in love with the music he wound up dedicat-ing his life to.The video, directed by Jimmy Powell and IHenry, captures much of the same classic feel, with shots of M.I. and Cutt making their way across the Brooklyn Bridge and around New York City.

Exlcusively available at hhv.de! Limited edition of 100 copies only!Only one copy per customer!“Psychedelic 60s” refers to the time of social, musical and artistic change influenced by encouraged unity, the breaking down of boundaries, the heightening of political awareness, empathy with oth-ers, and the questioning of authority. The 1960s was a decade of social revolution full of historical movements, new technology, and pop-ular culture. It was also considered the Psychedelic Era because of the commonly initiated drug influence. Psychedelic tendencies altered the artwork, films, and music of this time period. Music in particular was very popular to this scene and many legendary artists and bands were established in the sixties. Although countless musicians consistently used or experimented with different drugs and this us-age affected the popularity of their music, it is questionable whether it was perceived in a good way or a bad way. Most artists used drugs such as cannabis, LSD, and magic mushrooms to open up creative pathways for writing and some even used them while performing. Not only were the mu-sicians trying drugs, but many of their fans were using while listening to their music to replicate and enhance the mind-altering experiences of hallucinogenic drugs. Produced and arranged entirely by M.I. (Constant Deviants).

Notably so, this full-length twenty-track album features a guest collaboration from Detroit’s own Dank (from Frank n Dank), and artwork from Montreal’s @vnilla_art. Daniel Denton is something of a super hero. An iconic artist in Canadian hip-hop, based out of Vancouver, performing musical feats under any one of his mysterious aliases. Guised as Ron Contour, Torch, or most notably, as Moka Only, his delivery is consistent and unmatched. He is an acclaimed underground champion, and a true storyteller with an unfathomable collection of stories to tell. With countless years of accomplishments under his belt, Moka may flaunt the traits of a musical superhero, but he has never been one to disappear into the night. Moka embodies what today’s artists strive to attain, that is to say, the experience, the wins, the brain power, and the absolute creative will that fuels him. This hero is nowhere near done.

Joe Buck said "Ten years is a long time for anything to hold one's attention." Things change. People lose interest. New things come along. Time flies. If something lasts 10 years, it has to be good, right?It's almost 2020 and the output of hip-hop artists has increased dramatically in comparison to the genre's Golden Era(s). The abundance of emerging artists and new music doesn't often translate into timeless or memorable material. Sure, there is still a lot of great talent and new music to enjoy, but technology and the music industry have morphed so much in so little time, it has undeniably changed how we all create and consume. Artists have picked up the pace, often releasing songs and new projects year round, while audiences have adapted, too, with higher expectations and even shorter attention spans. There's an endless stream of new and on-demand content, of all quality levels, all available right now. With that said, the shelf life of the average release is not what it used to be although some acts have found exception. In 2006 Insight the Truncator (Boston) and Damu the Fudgemunk (Washington DC), started recording their debut album under the moniker Y Society. Entitled, “Travel at Your Own Pace” (TAYOP) the album was first released in October 2007. In hindsight, the year would be one of the last years where albums were designed for long term digestion, and a handful of releases from the era survived as undisputed classics to the masses. Today, conceptual albums are almost archaic in a genre built upon storytelling and themes. With TAYOP, Insight and Damu put the message in the music. The album title served the two as a roadmap to completion of its 13 songs and in return, the finished product serves as a navigation aid to the listener maneuvering through life within themselves and absorbing the outside world. From adventures of fiscal responsibility and imaginative tales of time travel to deconstructing one's obstructions and beyond, Insight's rhymes confidently steer the listener on whatever path they have chosen for themselves. The goal of the album is to empower. From start to finish, the array of uplifting lyrics is somewhat like modern day proverbs, but not proverbial. Musically, Damu the Fudgemunk pulls from a deep body of influences, that give it it's unique identity and charm while paying homage to the foundations of their predecessors. The Legendary Marley Marl cosigned the album as a "refreshing" effort of the times. For a project of such character, the general reception does not reflect the magnitude of acclaim by its cult following. Receiving mixed reviews in a foggy time in the industry, “Travel at Your Own Pace” still managed to sell out of its original production. However, it has been long out of print for a decade. In response, original vinyl pressings have fetched several hundreds of dollars per copy in the used online markets of Discogs and eBay. The progressing careers of both Insight and Damu in addition to their label, Redefinition Records (also celebrating 10 years) prove that in a murky 2007, they all knew where they were traveling and how to arrive. Even with their growth, a “Travel at Your Own Pace” repress has remained an inevitable inquiry and reoccurring expectation to loyal supporters. The answer is here and the wait is finally over. Packaged in a deluxe 2LP 10-year anniversary edition, “Travel at your Own Pace” is back on store shelves featuring brand new cover art, 5 rare & unreleased exclusive tracks, a special insert poster complete with lyrics and limited edition vinyl. In conjunction with the 2LP, the album's lead single, "Never Off (On & On) B/W "Pyramids to the Ghetto" is available on 7". Considered a classic in 2017 for it's artistic quality and rarity, this is an album that won't go unnoticed by collectors. “Travel At Your Own Pace”.

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..

The 'Horror City' project first recorded in 1995 (just after Paul's work on the Gravediggaz debut album), with a crew of local MC's from the Amityville neighbourhood of Long Island, known under the collective banner 'Horror City Productions'. H.C.P was the brainchild of LI rapper Superstar aka Roy Hamilton. They released a 12inch back in 1986 called 'Clap Yo Hands' on their own label, then worked on a project with De La Soul's Maseo in 1994. The latter was 'nearly' signed to Tommy Boy, and that is the story of Horror City. From Russell Simmons' cash advances to De La Soul hook ups, the MC's never quite made it big, something always got in the way. Chopped Herring last dropped a record with the supa-ill Horror City Crew back in 2010 with the Prince Paul-produced 1995 demos which later became the ""A Prince Among Thieves"" album.Here's a dope brand new nugget featuring Sper Star and Overdose for all the Amityville heads out there. Chopped Herring proudly presents two massive new joints from the OG Long Island Crew produced by DJ Slice. TIP!!

For Ro Spit and 14KT, they’ve built a small empire on their own as solo artists. Ro Spit has amassed a career spanning across 3 albums, 2 mixtapes, and countless of features including Royce Da 5’9”, Denaun Porter, Bun B, Freeway and Raheem DeVaughn just to name a few. Not to mention a reality TV show centered around his world famous brand Burn Rubber that was produced by Eminem. The production arm of RSXGLD, 14KT, is 8 albums deep into his career. KT has paired with some of the best in the game, having worked with a who’s who of today’s artists such as Roc Marciano, Danny Brown, Black Milk, Bun B, eLZhi, Oddisee, Skyzoo, Jay Electronica, and even a collaboration album with his fellow Ann Arbor compadré Mayer Hawthorne as they formed the duo Jaded Inc. Nothing, however, in their respective discographies has sounded more organic and masterful than the combination of Ro and KT. “Every project that I’ve done he’s been a part of,” says Ro. “To be honest, he’s my favorite producer.” The chemistry they’ve been able to develop over the years is evident throughout Ro’s discography on tracks like “Leave Me Alone” taken from Octane & iLLite’s The Forgotten... Chosen and the Freeway featured “Forefeit” from Ro’s Glass Ceiling Project. It’s only right that the two have taken their time to create an organic piece of work unlike anything they’ve done before, set to debut this Fall on Fat Beats Records. “Leading up to this, my whole career, I intentionally didn’t show vulnerability. I didn’t want people to know about me,” Ro exclaims. RSXGLD is the lyrical maturation of Ro Spit while this group pushed 14KT to new creative levels sonically. “I’ve used Maschine for 3 years but I haven’t really come out with any projects making beats in this way. It was a totally new process for me,” KT notates. “Sonically, I’ve created in a way that I’ve never created before. It’s all different and out of my comfort zone.” This is a true, social experiment. This is music made from the soul that encompasses every aspect of the human experience. This is how you push beyond your limits.This is RSXGLD.

Peddler. Their latest album, Libertad, produced entirely by Grammy Award winner Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, Brownout, Echocentrics, Spanish Gold), reflects today’s current mobilization among Black and Brown communities in the face of debilitating cycles of police brutality, flawed educational systems, privately owned prisons and detainment centers, corporately owned politicians, and racist judicial systems. The album delivers a mix of social justice and jam session with each song designed to raise questions, incite discussion, and promote healing and liberation. "Reflection of the Times" and "Soul Force" are the leading singles from Libertad.

Limited CD edition!This three-piece from the Bronx has sadly now only one living member, Arsonists' MC Q-Unique. You should definitely check out this dope early-mid 90's NY project - overseen by ATCQ producer Skeff Anslem. The group didn’t do many shows back then, but they opened for Grandmaster Flash & the Furious 5 while sharing out set with Tony Touch & D-Story, who would later become Q-Unique bandmates in the Arsonists. Q-tip from a Tribe Called Quest invited them on another show up during their set to have a live cypher with them at a Zulu jam in the Bronx River projects community center.MC Baretta & DJ Mel Ice, MC Q-Unique recorded their first and only single "The Ultimate" at D&D studios, the rest was recorded at Platinum Island, Skeff Anselms studio and Groovy Lou's studio.The group never had the chance to grow, because they didn’t really understand the ins and outs of the game to truly play.MC Q-Unique, Mel Ice & Baretta formed the group, The Nomaads in the streets of the Lower East side in NYC, where Mel lived. 1st they started recording demos with a producer that had been working with me named Thomas Owens. Then from that point, Skeff Anselm (A Tribe Called Quest, Brand Nubian, MC Serch and many more) reached out to Mel Ice to build on some music, so they recorded a few demos with him. Through Skeff is where MC Q-Unique started to learn about the biz and he connected with Q-tip who would invite us to the studio while they were recording "Lyrics To Go", just to mention that to give an idea of how "sorta" close they were to possibilities. Then Thomas introduced them to Groovy Lou, who would go on to produce the 1st and only single "The Ultimate" released on a very small record label from the Bronx called VIP hip hop. Tragically during that time Mel Ice passed away. That knocked the remaining members out for a little, when they decided to push on and recorded music with Groovy Lou. Baretta disappeared into the streets and MC Q-Unique did most of the final recordings with Lou. It was at this time that MC Q-Unique met Dstroy from the Arsonists, who invited him to build with the crew.Oddly enough, Groovy Lou ended up disappearing as well, and sadly Baretta passed away, July 15th 2017. The Nomaads was one of the roughest patches in MC Q-Unique’s career but there were moments that made it seem like they were doing something good.

In 2017, we’ve only caught a few glimpses of what Ivan has been working on, namely the soulful Kaytranada x Kiefer produced loosie “Also” and the jazzy MNDSGN produced single “Young Eye”. As it turns out, these two cuts are a good indication as to what the Oslo based artist has in store for us with his next LP release. On November 10h of this year, Ave presents his sophomore LP “Every Eye”. “Every Eye”, with its symbiosis of different producers, musicians and vocal styles puts Ivan Ave in his own lane. Leaving behind the sample heavy sound he’s gained recognition with, Ivan embarks on his first musical journey free of chopped up jazz, soul and funk records. But it would be an understatement to say that “Every Eye” still has jazz, soul and funk for days. Enlisting musical homies like Fredfades, MNDSGN, DJ Harrison, Kiefer, Kaytranada and Dâm- Funk on the production side, Ivan carves out his path as an ever-growing MC and singer.All-though “Every Eye” sometimes hovers in a state of weightlessness genre wise, there is no shortage of gravity in Ave’s lyrical universe. Ivan seems to have written this record as his own self help book, dealing with the mechanisms of the mind, the heart, and the world he sees (or doesn’t see).The title “Every Eye” refers to our various angles of view, the ones we choose and the ones we are assigned to. From any point of view, Ivan Ave’s “Every Eye” will be a treat for every ear on its November 10th releasethrough Jakarta Records.

Def3 has seen his fair share of success so far in his career, including the release of 2014’s award-winning LP, WILDLIF3. But with his latest endeavor, Small World, the stakes seem higher, and Def3 is poised to reach a higher level of success.The album bursts out of the gates with opener “Fill Your Soul,” a hornsfilled testament to your passion regardless of how difficult things may seem. He reveals on the track that despite taking time off, losing some friends, and plenty of sleepless nights, the rapper continued to push his craft forward, making the art he loves. His adoration for Hip-Hop is palpable throughout Small World, and it’s only part of what makes it so instantly endearing.The other parts include a few familiar faces to the Hip-Hop heads out there. Living legends such as Del The Funky Homosapien, Masta Ace, and Moka Only all appear on the album in addition to underground stalwarts such as Dertmerchant (of Sweatshop Union), Probcause, and turntablist, Skratch Bastid. They all bring their inimitable skill sets to the album, and often on the same cut. Like on lead single “Sing,” which finds Def3 trading verses with Masta Ace and Probcause while Skratch shreds a Jay Z quotable to pieces.Small World packs its 11 tracks with sharp writing and a tight mission statement, all of which is fueled by soulful and funky production from Denver’s Late Night Radio. His approach to Boom bap fits Def3 like a glove, whether it’s providing a guitar-laden swagger on “S.O.S.” or capturing the emotional turmoil of “Carry On.” The two make for a great pairing, and hopefully this is just the first of many projects together.

As a multi-instrumentalist, producer, emcee & music educator, Thavius Beck is a man whose life revolves around audio and technology. With a focus on bass heavy rhythms, dark emotional melodies and twisted sample manipulation, Thavius has not only released numerous solo albums (under his own name, plus previous moniker Adlib), but he’s also collaborated with and remixed luminaries Saul Williams, Nine Inch Nails, The Mars Volta, Skylar Grey and Nas, to name a few.Eventually his love of music and technology lead to Ableton Live, where Thavius became a certified trainer of in 2009. He quickly became a world-renowned advocate for Ableton Live education, and took a brief hiatus from releasing albums to run electronic music workshops and explore teaching. In 2016, he left the cozy confines of Los Angeles and relocated to Brooklyn, NY. Reinvigorated by the city, plus inspired by frequent European tours with Saul, both offered Thavius meditative hours spent in solitary at hotels, airports & on trains writing new material. The result is an impassioned new self-produced project “Technol O.G.”, that finds Thavius expressing his true self as an artist & man. His much-anticipated 12 song album is a record full of raw & unfiltered truth revealed through his rhythmic vocal reflections and electronic production perfection. Released worldwide on Monday September 18th, 2017 on one-of-a-kind kaleidoscopic 12”” colored vinyl, housed in a variety of hand-screenprinted and collectible outer jackets featuring stunning art by Jon Ryan.

The legendary Wu-Tang Clan is among the most successful and influential groups in hip-hop history. As one of the nine original members, Masta Killa has been an important part of the Wu-Tang legacy since the group's debut in 1993. He's contributed verses to countless Wu classics ("Glaciers Of Ice", "Winter Warz", "Triumph", "Duel Of The Iron Mic", "Wu Banga 101"), released three critically acclaimed solo albums, and always remained true to the core Clan aesthetic: razor-sharp wisdom over dusty, soulful production. Now, Masta Killa is back with a brand new album, Loyalty Is Royalty. The highly-anticipated project boasts an impressive list of guest appearances, including Method Man, Redman, KXNG Crooked, Sean Price, RZA, GZA, Prodigy, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, and more. As fate would have it, two of those MCs have since passed away, making their contributions particularly special. "All praises due to the memories of Sean Price and Prodigy of Mobb Deep," says MK. "Two hip hop legends." With production handled by the likes of 9th Wonder, Illmind, P.F. Cuttin, RZA, True Master, and Dame Grease, Loyalty Is Royalty delivers the kind of classic hip-hop experience fans have come to expect from Masta Killa.

Technical, yet with a clear and concise message and deeply personal at times, Hex One offers a glimpse into his life as an MC and the world he lives in as seen through the scope of his lens. Backed by hard headnodic beats, deep, soulful samples with east coast and jazz influences, and booming drums and bass lines, Hex masterfully shatters contemporary society's notion of Hip-hop being a lowbrow genre of music. Despite music itself being highly subjective in nature, he aims to remove some of this subjectivity and boldly proclaim that some art simply takes more skill than others and talent is most certainly measurable. The ironic disconnect, however, between this measure of talent and the measure of one's success poses to be one of his life's greatest woes. The album is thus presented with a subtle melancholic tone throughout, as he struggles to come to terms with this realization. The bigger irony perhaps being that he does so with the same intricate attention to detail and lyrical prowess that is undervalued and overlooked in Hip-hop's musical landscape today. His philosophy remains: if a picture is worth a thousand words, so too can a poets words be worth a thousand pictures.

Apathy (Demigodz, Army of the Pharaohs) and O.C. (D.I.T.C. - Diggin' In The Crates) combine forces to form 'Perestroika', a supergroup inspired by the cold war being waged on the rap industry. Anti-mainstream propaganda has become a bit of a cliche, so instead of speaking out against the unflattering direction that today's hip hop music has gone in, Apathy and O.C. have taken action by building a pillar in the ruins of what's left of true school hip hop. Picture the first time you heard Wu-Tang Clan's debut album "Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers" and were immediately swept up in to a dark Kung Fu movie, with the sound effects and painted visuals - "Perestroika" is intended to have the same effect... except it transports you to Cold War, Soviet Russia. From the Kremlin, to small villages affected by the economically devastating times of Perestroika, this album is a salute to the underdog and all those who are able to survive the coldest winters. Not entirely conceptual however, the album allows both wordsmiths to flex their greatest strengths over solid head-nodding East Coast-styled production. Showing up for the cause, guests Celph Titled, Slaine, Marvalyss, Kappa Gamma and Jus Cuz add to the palate alongside production that is mostly handled by Apathy, with MoSS and Illinformed (The Four Owls) contributing tracks as well. In a time of worldly political conflict and scandals, this project plays as the perfect soundtrack to the madness.
