If you are one that seems to feel like New York hip-hop is dead, allow me to introduce you to Brooklyn MC, Livin Proof. ‘Die For A Deal 5.0‘ is the name of his debut album & it is a banger for real. The album features Joell Ortiz, Torae, Chi-Ali, Maffew Ragazino, & more.
Born Obress Guy, Brooklyn MC Livin Proof is no stranger to the spotlight. He came up in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, was signed to Memphis Bleek’s Get Low Records imprint & was a part of five Roc-A-Fella tours. He was personally called out on stage by Jay-Z to a crowd of 30,000 & received an abundance of hands-on experience at what the music industry truly entailed.
Now ready to release his debut album ‘Die For A Deal 5.0‘ & put that knowledge he gained over the years to the test. ‘Die For A Deal 5.0‘ is a well balanced album that has a gritty NY sound to it, along with a nice polished & commercial one too. The 1st single “Keep Living” which has a video, has over 50k views on Vevo & counting. The 2nd single & video “Better Known As NYC” captures the essence of New York City at its finest. The album features Joell Ortiz, Chi Ali, Torae, Maffew Ragazino, & more. A bulk of the production was handled by Fantom of the Beat (“Magic Stick” by 50 Cent & “Apollo Kids” by Ghostface Killah) along with Jermz, Loyalty Digital Corp, & in-house producer Relavant Beats. Appearing on acclaimed blogs such as 2DopeBoyz.com & NahRight.com, getting spins on NY’ Hot 97.1 radio station, & the singles amassing over 12,000 downloads, it is apparent that all eyes are on Livin Proof.
