Back in stock after being sold out for 11 months! Fresh off of the success of 2003’s Visions of Gandhi, Jedi Mind Tricks returned to the studio for their anticipated follow-up release, Legacy of Blood. Legacy of Blood features heavyweight guest appearances from GZA/Genius , Sean Price, Killah Priest, among others. This album showcases the group’s commercially-minded artistic maturation, without foregoing the unbridled intensity that has come to define their aggressively stylized hip-hop. Legacy of Blood is a defining statement by a group surging towards their creative peak, poised on the verge of crossover success.

From the album: Free Will (Babygrande Records; iHipHop Distribution), shipping on CD.
Song produced by: S. Frank & Scholito

Free Will showcases the Philly wordsmith sounding as inspired as when he first emerged alongside Jay Z on “1-900-Hustler.” Rejuvenated, Freeway has spent the last two years perfecting Free Will while simultaneously reminding fans why he is often recognized as a hip-hop luminary, even sharing the stage with Girl Talk during his headlining set at Cochella in 2014. More self-determined than ever, Freeway alongside an ensemble of A-list producers demonstrates that making an extraordinary album takes nothing more than Free Will.

Legendary member of Brand Nubian has just released his first album since “Retroactive” in 2009; which was also on Babygrande Records. The album is bolstered by socially-driven rhythmic tracks, including the new single, “UDK.” The track was produced by Grand Puba; who sounds sharper than ever as he reflects on the climate of today’s society. He touches on issues ranging from racial tensions to celebrity scandal. Grand Puba says, “The day my people wake up is the day I no longer have to make songs and until that time comes, party on!”

The Silent Partners is a magnificently organic album that brings together one-half of the Mobb with their favorite producer for a modern day hip-hop classic. The Silent Partners is slated to feature guest appearances by Method Man, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) and Cormega, and will undoubtedly make a loud impact on the hip-hop culture for years to come.
