First of all, I got my money back from Uncle Louie! Thank you so much for your support and your help in putting pressure on him. I couldn't have done it without you.
In other news, I'm working on putting together a Best of Sudden Death 2-CD compilation album. The plan is to fund it with a Kickstarter campaign and release it at Con on the Cob.
After deciding what songs I wanted to put on it several people on Facebook started giving me input about their favorite songs and I realized they didn't match. So I set up a poll. What are your favorite Sudden Death songs, and which ones do YOU want included on this album?
I'm planning a couple special things such as some updated versions of a couple songs. There will also be a third digital-only compilation with additional content for Kickstarter supporters. And yes, one of the rewards will be "all the albums" (digitally).
I plan to master the songs from Fatal Accident Zone that are included. Older songs, wherever possible, will be remixed and remastered from whatever source materials I can find.
I've got some cool stuff planned for this release. Tune in to the next episode of The Insider for details, and keep an eye out for the Kickstarter campaign which will be launching soon.
Two of Long Island's most celebrated emcees, the god Rakim and the legendary R.A. The Rugged Man, spent yesterday at Manhattan's No Mystery Studio working on new music together. In this clip, the pair chop it up about Rakim's contentious history with Big Daddy Kane, including the fateful phone call that prevented the feud from escalating. R.A. and Ra are working on a song for a movie soundtrack, and will soon be shooting a music video for the track. More details on the project coming soon.
