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!

Our boy Dirt got to hang out with his his old label mates, POD (Headed by Sonny Sandoval) for a free concert they threw in support of the Whosoevers ministry. Dirt commented to us later that "it was awesome to see that Sonny, after all these years of shows and making music, still has a visible passion for his art and fans on stage."
Some of you might have been blessed enough to see both these vocalist perform "Breathe Babylon" while touring together in the late 90's, a thrashing Rapcore song throwing down the wicked ways of the 'Babylonian rule' of our day!
If you are not aware of POD (Payable on Death) check em out! They were there for the SOTL from the get up! Check out the Whosoevers as well!
And for all you who missed out on that old 'Breathe Babylon' steelo... get a live version (Tomfest '97) of it HERE! Listen to what happens when Dirt eats too much sugar!
