The emergence of hip-hop out of Queens, NY has proven to be timeless. From Run DMC, LL Cool J, & Kool G Rap to A Tribe Called Quest, Large Professor, Organized Konfusion, & Mobb Deep, there’s never been a shortage of dynamic music from the borough.
Longtime observer & emcee of the culture Truth is set to release his debut album ‘From Ashes To Kingdom Come‘ on Ill Adrenaline Records. A few years back, Truth formed an alliance with PF Cuttin (of Blahzay Blahzay) and together, the Queens emcee & the Brooklyn producer/DJ/engineer are ready to release a typical 90’s throwback sounding full-length that carries PF’s thumbprint throughout.
On the 18-track strong heater, Truth picks up various topics – ranging from life experiences to repping hip-hop culture – always showcasing his passionate & sharp lyrical rhyme skills. Entirely recorded & mixed by PF Cuttin, the album’s raw & dusty sound stays true to the streets, including features from heavyweights such as the late Sean Price, O.C., & AG (of D.I.T.C.).
Newcomer JK1 The Supernova handles the majority of production along with veteran producers PF Cuttin, Psycho Les (of The Beatnuts), Da Beatminerz, & DJ Doom. Containing plenty of dope scratches mainly executed by PF Cuttin & Rock Steady’s own DJ JS-1, the album’s uniqueness remains on one accord with the boom bap sound & origin which is a rarity in today’s music.
Today, VannDigital.com brings to you the 2nd music video off Truth’s debut album ‘From Ashes To Kingdom Come‘, featuring the late Sean Price, which you can give a listen below…
