Hiero And Chosen Few Come Together For Second Song From The Mansion Series

The Song:

Sporting 1980's garb for the single cover art, in vein of Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing, the tone is set from the jump for the latest single in The Mansion series, with Cold Showda (of Chosen Few) dressed as Spike and Pep Love as Radio Raheem. Harkening back to a similar era, the new single "Easy 2 Find," produced by Unjust of Chosen Few, features jazz horn chops and vibrant electric piano over a powerful drum break. Neither rapper holds back, attacking with a fast flow and intricate rhyme schemes. "Psychological warfare I feel for assault/ Well I'm exactly what your band not /Got me off of your mix like a ham hock/ beans and cornbread OH to Oakland," raps Cold Showda, dropping reference to the respective hometowns of Chosen Few and Hiero. The song represents "a battle between love and hate," says Showda in regard to the "oversaturated, regurgitated music of today."

Keeping in line with the single artwork, fans can also look forward to a video for "Easy 2 Find," echoing the Spike Lee concept.

Fans can stay tuned to and for more free goodies from the Hiero camp.

PR: Canibus & Keith Murray - "The Undergods" on May 31st

Canibus & Keith Murray - "The Undergods" on May 31st

Underground legends Canibus & Keith Murray plan to release the follow up to last years self-titled “Undergods” EP on May 31st. “In Gods We Trust, Crush Microphones To Dust”, the full length effort by The Undergods is Executive Produced by Erick Sermon (in conjunction with Canibus & Keith) and A&R’d by M-Eighty of Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture, The Academy, and 4 HRSMN fame. In addition to appearances by Tech N9ne, Crooked I & Planet Asia, the beats are supplied by Erick Sermon, Jake One and more. With all of these key players lending their skills to this project, “In Gods We Trust” is a virtual “who’s-who” of the underground.
With the first single “Undergods Roll” produced by Jake One, Canibus & Keith lay out their plan for underground domination on their own terms without even taking a breath for a hook.
Coming together several years ago, these titans of the underground formed “The Undergods” and released an EP on iTunes with the intent on it being a one off side project. But after receiving acclaim from both critics and the fans, Canibus and Murray returned to the studio to turn what was initially a side project, into a full fledged album. The result is 18 tracks of pure fire with a “take no prisoners” attitude against the industry and the haters. 
With Canibus being one of the best lyrical freestyle rappers of all time, Canibus truly has few equals when it comes to spitting off the dome. After his first album “Can-I-Bus”, Canibus followed up releasing “2000 B.C.” and “C True Hollywood Stories” which topped the Billboard 200 chart at #34 and #97 in 2001. Canibus remained staying in the mainstreams rearview having released 10 full length albums (Including last years successful “Melatonin Magik”) with aggregate sales of 432,000. After 15 plus years, Canibus has placed himself as a cornerstone of the underground.
Keith Murray, a legend in his own right, broke into the game nearly 20 years ago and has continued to be a mainstay since. After releasing his debut album in 1994 (which was awarded 4 mics by The Source), Murray joined Erick Sermon and Redman as a member for The Def Squad, best known for their cover of Sugarhill Gang’s “Rappers Delight”. After his release from Def Jam Records, Murray released two successful independent records with Koch Records (now eOne).
With appearances by Tech N9ne, Crooked I, Erick Sermon, Planet Asia & Jake One, The Undergods look to fulfill their motto – “In Gods We Trust, Crush Microphones To Dust”.
Available May 31st on RBC Records
