from Jeremiah DIRT: I went into the Qumran Cave Studio today after my early morning meditations and there He was. He was posted upon the window curtain like a sentinel guarding a host of gems. And I immediately understood what treasure he was watching over. In that same studio is the master sessions to Shadow of the Locust's upcoming album, "a Mighty Army Cometh". I knew the Locust on the window shade was there as an oracle to tell me it is time to finish what had begun.....
Are You Ready!?
Releasing later this year, "a Mighty Army Cometh" from Shadow of the Locust is panning out to be a great album composed by the crew, FULL of some fresh, new, creative Hiphop. Here is SOTL originator, Jeremiah Dirt and the our acolyte, Samuel Ox, giving you some fun Behind-the-Scenes promo for this Highly Anticipated release.

Our DJ Kair played a major role in the newly released album from 'the Battery' (Jurny Big & Peace 586).
The 3rd release from the Duo (Trio if You count Kair... which we do!) is a melting pot of Jurny's Hard-hitting lyrics and Topical Matter Over Peace's Boom-Bap Soundscapes. Adding Kair's Creative Sample Choices & Cuts, the album is an Appealing, Head-Nodding Audio Explosion well Worth our Support.
Go pick it Up from Illect Records and Represent God in Our Hiphop Culture!

the episode goes over:
And out of right field!--- Samuel Oxymoron has just released an epic EP project!!!
the Middle-Aged Has-Been Rapper EP
The album was concepted by a fanciful trip back to Sam's upbringing in Hiphop as he reminisced on his good ol' days of late 90's rap music. All production features this heyday of urban mainstream, chopped, cut-up & mixed by Beat Somebody, in an elaborate audible display of completely entertaining Hiphop music!
Although the beats are not 'new' the re-versioned concepts are fresh and invigorating! Sam Ox's lyrical prowess & Beat Somebody's quirky re-envisioning layered over these classics makes for a completely heavy-hitting final product. Oxymoron definately soothes us with a thurough trip from fun (Buf-zilla), to emotional (Start to Finish), to revealing (Fight for You), to soothing (Pen Play) and insightful (Ready Writer). His counterpart on the project, Beat Somebody, provides a definitive twist on some well known classics (Digable Planets, Tribe Called Quest, Biggie Smalls, ect) that seems to perfectly blend new audio concepts into grooved-ridden hits, seating us right in the middle of before & next, then & now, yesterday & today.
Features: Hosea Noiz, Man o' War, ManCHILD, Jeremiah Dirt, Loose Enda, M AKA Muffin, Sojourn, Foreknown and more!
the album is friggidy-FRESH!
The Album is FREE! Don't SLEEP ON IT!
