Bloodlust 2 is the definitive MarQ Spekt record. A step above everything released thus far. This project features the reclusive veteran rhyming along side some of his generations finest MC’s including Karniege, Messiah, Vordul Mega, Sean Price, J-Live, Stahhr the Empress, Thirstin Howl 3rd, Broady Champs, C-Rayz Walz, John Robinson, Skit Slam, Dynas and more.
Those who have followed the “Broady Champ” since the late 90’s and kept your eyes to the ground during Spekt’s J.D. Salinger-esque hiatus from the game, finally have what they have been waiting for. Bloodlust 2 is a labor of love and the first album to hand anyone who wants to know what he MarQ Spekt is about. Barbwire rhymes, scrunch your face up verses, the “grilchiness” that you’ve been missing.
The Super Chron Flight Brothers are back! Deleted Scenes is a prelude to Cape Verde, which is the official follow-up to their 2007 debut Emergency Powers. The mixtape is full of brand-new Super Chron tracks, remixes and unreleased exclusives. There is even a sneak peak at some new Billy Woods solo material. Cape Verde was originally slated for release this fall but now that the release date is set as 2/23/10, we felt like we owed the fans something to hold them over.
Deleted Scenes features guest appearances by Cannibal Ox, Invizzibl Men, Trife da God, Zesto, Pastense, Junclassic, Johnny Voltik, and more. Production is handled by Willie Green, BOND, Marmaduke, Essex Dogs, A.M. Breakups and Arcsin.

For the past decade MarQ Spekt has been underground hip-hop’s Bobby Fischer. Popping up on tracks and ripping them to shreds before melting back into the night. Half-myth, half-legend, Spekt has somehow been a part of every significant movement in the east-coast underground for ten years, without ever fully emerging from the shadows. Originally signed to Subverse with MF DOOM and The Micronauts, his 2001 Liquid Smoke b/w Shoplifter 12″ is an Ebay classic. Add to that his blazing cameos on Big Jus’ [Company Flow] albums, the Broady Champs group album that dropped on Day by Day Entertainment at the height of their success, and his never-officially-released Pretty Weapons solo album, and you have the makings of an underground legend. In 2008, Spekt stepped out of the shadows and teamed up with prolific NYC fixture, Karniege, as the Invizzibl Men. The result was a futuristic banger of an album, The Unveiling, that sported guest spots from Cannibal OX, C-Rayz Walz and Billy Woods, amongst others.
Now Backwoodz Studioz is proud to present Guilty Party, a brand new collaborative project with MarQ Spekt and producer Lex Boogie From the Bronx. One producer, one MC; Guilty Party is a stylistic return to the gritty mid-nineties basement sessions that Spekt hones his craft in. It’s a return to lo-fi, extra filthy samples and hard-as-granite lyrics. Spekt is an Mc’s MC, but on this project he expanded his palette by co-producing beats with Lex Boogie as the two came to boil down the essence that is Spekt.
MarQ put it best saying “This free album is a dedication to raw hip-hop coming from the heart. No million dollar studio tricks or Autotune, or even big name collaborations. This is just sky diving with the pen.”

Backwoodz Studioz is proud to release Guilty Party, the next project from Spekt since him & Karniege teamed up as the Invizzibl Men & delivered The Unveiling. Guilty Party will be available for free download VERY SOON, so stay tuned for the release date. And if you haven’t heard it yet, by all means check out the Invizzibl Men’s debut album, The Unveiling. Praised by Urb Magazine, The Run-Off Groove, COOL’EH Magazine and TSS, The Unveiling, was undoubtedly one of 2008’s most impressive indie-rap records; Granite lyrics splattered across new-age polymer beats. Get familiar….
The covers are have finally come off The Unveiling, the debut LP from MarQ Spekt and Karniege; The Invizzibl Men. The result is a ferociously hard rap record bristling with gunmetal beats and lyrics still dripping spraypaint. Guests on The Unveiling include Vast Aire, Vordul Mega, C-Rayz Walz, Billy Woods and the Broady Champs.
