Wow, it seems that Prince Paul AKA one of the illest minds of all time in Hip-Hop when it comes to production and putting albums together overall has been sitting on this unreleased album he did with longtime collaborator Superstar, (who also went by the name Horror City), for 15 years! That is until he dropped it completely free today via his Twitter....I keep telling ya'll non-believers Tweeting is the future, well, in this case I guess the past, but you know what I mean...
Most heads will remember Superstar most from appearing on the joints "MC Hustler" and "War Party" for Paul's classic concept album "A Prince Among Thieves", the rest of you need to tune in...
This was a project that I wanted to put together with Amityville MC legend Superstar . as I thought about it more I wanted to recruit more Mcs we knew to make it diverse . Superstar already had the name "Horror City" so wen recorded under that name . This project was recorded right after the first Gravedigga album " 6ft deep"in 1995 . I shopped the demo but unfortunately it got looked over and never got signed . I sat on this project for a while but it always had a dear place in my heart because I thought it was really good and the talent was there . I stripped some of the music from the demo and put it on " a prince among thieves" and actually had a few of the guys perform on the " Thieves " album as well but to be honest I always liked these originals better . So now I have decided share these songs with all of you because holding on to them made no sense .. why not share great music . Hopefully you the listener will enjoy this project as much as I do . please share it , thats why I made this for free download.
As if this wasn't dope enough news on it's own, Paul also has let it be known that he's going to begin releasing a bunch of free downloads every week as a apart of his new free download series, so do watch his moves..
