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 3rd music video off Truth’s debut album ‘From Ashes To Kingdom Come‘, that includes production from Psycho Les (1/2 of The Beatnuts), which you can give a watch below…
