This Earth Day, Smash City Gauntlet wants you to think about hip-hop and the environment. Their new EP, There Goes The Neighborhood, features 5 pollution free hip-hop cuts produced by Optiks (Blitz the Ambassador), Abbott and Sneaka Freak.
“With so much noise pollution in hip-hop we wanted to put something out that gave back to the environment and made people excited to listen to hip-hop as loud as they can in their headphones,” says the group’s Digital Manager Greg Rollett.
There Goes The Neighborhood is a free download with the option to become a “Smash Citizen,” which includes cataloged material from group members Kap Kallous (Grind Time South President), JBiz and Redd Simpkins, as well as the video and unreleased track for “The Devils Lettuce,” discounts on merchandise and other exclusives.
The one key ingredient is that everything is digital – no plastic discs, no paper and no printing. This combined with the musical talents of the group is the combination for a perfect release on Earth Day, April 22nd 2010, giving go green a double meaning.
