Emergency Powers

Billy Woods and Priviledge are theĀ Super Chron Flight Brothers and Emergency Powers; The World Tour is their debut album. With production by Bond, MF DOOM, Nasa (Def Jux / Uncommon Music), Dr. Monokrome and Goldenchild, as well as guest spots by Cannibal Ox, Trife da God, The Reavers and Marq Spekt, Emergency Powers is a future classic. Innovative storytelling, fearless lyricism and dope beats come together in a story of two black men flying high, low and everywhere in between for two years of their lives. Cannabis scented, unapologetically political and darkly humorous, Emergency Powers is the first of more to come from the Super Chron Flight Brothers.

Bioluminescence EP

Chicago native Keith Masters, previously known as Stretch Nyce, brings you his debut solo effort, “Bioluminescence”. While trail-blazing his solo career with a full-length album in the works now, Keith has steadily worked with rap peers (Vordul, Kast Uno, etc.) not to mention being a member of The Reavers. Regardless of the venue, Keith’s versatility and insightful lyricism stand out as selling points for any fan of true and earnest Hip Hop music.

Sound Clash 2

The second installment in the Soundlcash series pits two unsigned producers brimming with audio slicing skills, AXIS v. Goldenchild, who deliver an exciting second heat battle of wits beats and ingenuity to dodge entertainment rights and deliver entertainment to the people. Although the two competitors vary greatly in style they both dramatically challenge traditional sampling techniques and implementations in their music, and in the ways electronics blends with the live elements.

Terror Firma

Perhaps not since the emergence of the Wu-Tang Clan has there been a hip-hop group of this magnitude. The Reavers are a supergroup like no other, eleven amazing MC’s, weilding a dizzying array of styles. Eleven strugglers brought to together by backwoodz studioz to march on the fortresses of the status quo. Eleven child soliders charging into the void, with nothing but a burning blunt to light the way. Kings, beggars, thugs, prophets, heathens, philosophers, drunks, healers, killers and poets are all among the Reavers ranks. And TERROR FIRMA is where we live.

Golden Gunn

In his follow-up to Eminent Domain, Bond comes out with guns blazin’. Over the course of this 70 minute LP, Bond probably runs through 50 different beats and almost every genre of music thats ever been recorded. Expect the unexpected, light your blunt, clean your guns, fix your bike chain, put away the good silverware because like a wise man once said “It’s only like five percent out of a hundred!”

NPR/MAD

all things considered, that was a long time ago
Dr. Monokrome… NPR vs MAD
