New Hip Hop Single & Video – Entertainment is Personal ft Awol One
This is the first single from a new album “The Swashbuckler Vol 1 : The Viking Wars”
The album is the brainchild of Man Bites Dog Records CEO RML and producer Kount Fif, and has been nearly 6 years in the making.
Using Wu Tang’s “36 Chambers”, Mobb Deep’s “Infamous” and Heltah Skeltah’s “Nocturnal” as the blueprint, they were inspired to create an album which would reflect their own influences over the years and stand up to the classics over time.
The methodical approach has been worth the wait. The mainstay of the album has been produced by Kount Fif, credited with production on Killah Priest’s “I Believe”, Heltah Skeltah’s “Never Ending” & Gun 4 Gun ft Killah Priest & Nas. He is joined by fellow MBD labelmates Jason Rose & RML with further contributions from Bronze Nazareth, Brinknam, Melodious Monk and on the debut single “Entertainment is Personal” by Brycon ft Awol One.
The album, out on 27th March on Man Bites Dog Records, includes features from Royce da 5 9, Planet Asia, Heltah Skeltah, C Rayz Walz, Karniege, Cappadonna, Roc Marciano, Copywrite and many more well respected in the hip hop world.
