Product Details


When asked to describe his latest album, Iron Lyon simply states: "it's one smooth ride with no filler, a true album from beginning to end inspired by my life experience." That's precisely what the sophomore LP, "From the Ground Up" is. The seasoned emcee/DJ presents a work that cohesively sets a vibe of 90s nostalgia that is still relevant and much needed in today's landscape. Set to drop September 6, 2012--as a follow-up to the "Time Capsule" LP & "The Foundation" EP--it is with much anticipation that the album brings listeners 16 tracks of audible substance. He not only raps on the project, but also showcases his turntablist skills by scratching over various tracks. This album's unique musical formula additionally spawned from producers, Chad Dubz and Mr. Koichi, also features Sean Price, Edo G, Slim Kid Tre of The Pharcyde, and others.

Upon temporarily locating to Miami, FL for spring 2011, Iron Lyon was immediately greeted by a severe bus accident, almost ceasing his music career and therefore having to put "From The Ground Up" on the back burner...until now. He credits the city of New York as a significant voice in his life and music; similar to the city's daily struggle, progression, and rapture, "From the Ground Up" conveys a myriad of personal conquests and influences laced over classic hip-hop flavored instrumentals tinged in diversity. The album showcases musical influences ranging from classic reggae, to Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Aaliyah, Black Sabbath, etc., and speaks to an equally diverse audience. For instance, the songs "Walk Away" & "Got Love" tap into Lyon's connection to West Indian culture, while "So Called Problems" has acoustic loops merged with boom bap drums and a John Mayer sample as the hook.

The first single, "Step Into The Night" has already been sneak-previewed on Peter Rosenberg's show on world-renowned Hot97 and Statik Selektah's show on Shade45. In just a few weeks, the track and video are officially dropping, and the full LP being released early September with a firm stamp of approval from the classic indie hip-hop outfit that is Fatbeats. Shortly thereafter, the next video and single off the project, "Summer in the City" will follow. Undoubtedly, "From the Group Up" will be stirring quite a buzz in the viral circuit and giving hip-hop and music enthusiasts everywhere an album that can accompany them for years to come.
