“Black Beach” [Album] by ZotheJerk & Frost Gamble

Albums/Eps, Featured, New Adds..., Official, The Crates 07 Jun 17 0

Detroit rapper ZotheJerk and NY State producer Frost Gamble, now resident in Winnipeg, release their new album “Black Beach” on Friday May 26th through 22 Entertainment.

Zo’s powerful social commentary on the experience of today’s “Black America” is complimented by Frost’s production, infused with a mixture of soul, electronica and straight hip hop bangers to catch the mood swings.

A one time signee to the late Proof’s Ironfist label and recipient of a “Humanitarian of the Year Award” for work in the community, Zo has delivered a robust and intelligent narrative reinforced by the contributions of featured artists including Slaughterhouse frontman KXNG Crooked, Brand Nubian’s Sadat X, Boldy James and legendary Random Axe member Guilty Simpson.

The Iceberg by Oddisee

Albums/Eps, The Crates 24 Feb 17 0

The prolific MC, producer and musician Oddisee’s new album ‘The Iceberg’ is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. His third release in just 12 months, ‘The Iceberg’ is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in hip-hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick r&b and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement. ‘The Iceberg’ is out February 24 on Mello Music Group.
