Martin Luther:

This album is a collection of songs, thoughts and moments. As opposed to waiting until the perfect musician or engineer or budget became available to record an album, I took it upon myself to write and record most of these songs at home with my production team, The Nvizibilz…Pascael Arceneaux, Paisley Hinton, D’Antoni Parks, Niki Glaspie, Aaron Bellamy, Camus, Rebecca Roudman, Uriah Duffy, Sanford Biggers and Stic Man. Over the web, studio to studio from east to west, hotel room to airport bathroom, we cut vocals and edited parts and created music. This is for the fans. Creativity lives in all of us. For those who aren’t scared to dream, please download and share this music. ”THINK, IT AIN’T ILLEGAL YET”

10.Deep:

Labor Day Weekend is nearly upon us… And those that know Brooklyn know this weekend the streets of Flatbush and Crown Heights will explode for the Carribean Day parade. In the spirit of the many Caribbean nations pouring into our streets to tear it up, we decided to contribute to the mayhem by throwing a new mixtape project into the mix – one that would end the summer with a bang… or a murder.

We teamed up with the mighty Federation Sound to bring you Summer Murda, a unique 48-track soundclash mix full of exclusive dubplates from a wide range of dancehall’s greatest new and old artists – including the likes of Buju Banton, Vybz Kartel, Sean Paul, Chino, Mr. Lexx, Kardinal Offishall and Flippa Mafia to true OGs Johnny Osbourne, Shinehead and Freddie McGregor. Our collective focus was not to bring you the latest, newest dancehall, but to create something timeless.
