Tucson's Finest Releases Latest Single From Illuminati Thug Mafia, Preps New Video
Critical Praise for Isaiah Toothtaker:
"I am fairly certain that my former scripture teacher would confirm that this is, beyond a reasonable doubt, the devil's work." - Cool'eh Magazine
"You can't really compare this record to anything because right now there isn't shit out there that sounds like this." - Sergdun of BEERANDRAP.COM / SoManyShrimp.com
"If you're a fan of raw hip-hop, Toothtaker's Illuminati Thug Mafia is the first must-hear record of this young 2011." - MyOldKentuckyBlog.com
When he's not tattooing the likes of MURS, Jean Grae, 2Mex, Big Pooh, members of Arcade Fire, and others at his popular tattoo shop STARING WITHOUT CARING, Tucson, Arizona rapper Isaiah Toothtaker continues to turn heads with his latest album, Illuminati Thug Mafia, released late last month as part of a joint venture between Alpha Pup Records and his own label Machina Muerte. Now the Tucson native is treating fans with the latest single, "Baby," which fans can also expect a video for in the coming days.
Convicted multiple felon and participant in over 400 witnessed street fights -- all after being kicked out of his home at the age of 11 and having his father murdered by Tucson Police -- it's no secret that Isaiah Toothtaker has seen and experienced plenty of violence's shady underworld. And the combination of heavily reverberating drums, high-speed crashing percussion, deep bass, and shrill organ stabs, create a perfectly grim and sinister backdrop for the Machina Muerte Capo to unwind his tales, starting with his off-kilter, semi-melodic chorus, as he sings, "Dear mama, didn't mean to kill your baby, is that your baby?/ Holy father, I'm waiting for you to save me, so can you save me?" Later referring to himself as the "Only undertaker that overachieves," Toothtaker, on "Baby" as with the rest of the album, mixes mayhem with deft wordplay, and leaves it up to listeners to decipher their own meanings.
Isaiah Toothtaker's newest album Illuminati Thug Mafia is available now via Machina Muerte/Alpha Pup.
After two acclaimed releases in his "RESPECT" series, up-and-coming rapper and Little Rock, Arkansas native Epiphany is proud to unveil "RESPECT Part 3: The Wait" a mixtape dedicated to the thoughts, joys, pains, mistakes, and gains in waiting for your day to come.
DJ's this is the brand new single from upcoming rap group Swagg Royalty. The record is called "Super Cool" and was produced by Vybe Beatz. They are putting in hard work on this grind to get their music heard so give it a listen and if you like the record show some support with a spin! If you need anything hit them directly below. Let's work!

Free EP Download Inspired by the FX series Justified
The creative minds at Syntax Records have come together in full force to create a five-song EP entitled “Syntax Records Is Justified” inspired by the FX show Justified. With the premiere of the show’s second season tonight at 10 p.m., Syntax is offering the EP as a free download at www.syntaxrecords.com/justified.
“The two main ingredients of Justified are country-living and street life which is what I know the least about” admitted Tim Trudeau, President of Syntax Records, “However once we were in the studio we were able to commandeer these fictitious characters and essentially let them write these songs.”
Trudeau, who goes by alias rocdomz (pronounced rock-domes) when in the studio, used his years of experience in production and songwriting to lead an all-star lineup that included in-house producer and Syntax Recording artist- Shane Newville, member of Sackcloth Fashion- Sam Hart, Syntax Records’ own Director of Customer Development- Jeremiah Bonds, and brother of rocdomz and Syntax Records co-founder- MaxOne.
The goal of this project was to create music that could be synchronized in the show. “Writing from the perspective of someone else throughout this whole project was a new endeavor for me, but the experience was awesome, the chemistry in the studio was irreplaceable” said Jeremiah Bonds, one of the project writers.
Justified is based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard, including Leonard's short story Fire in the Hole. It follows fictional character Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens getting tangled in the new criminal organizations moving into Harlan County. Season two picks up with a cliffhanger after an epic gun battle.
About Syntax Records: Syntax Records, a division of Quality Junk, has been in the business of making high quality music since 1997. Beginning with the trend-breaking success Sackcloth Fashion, Syntax Records has also been home to artists such as Braille, Kaboose, L.A. Symphony, and the famous Night Owls series.
