Together, DJ Revolution, Styliztik Jones (hailing from LA, CA), and KB Imean (hailing from Queens, NY) represent one of the first genuine new rap groups to emerge in a generation. Not just another disparate crew, but a true collective of teachers and learners working to lead a people, a movement.
Next week, DJ Revolution will present Malcolm & Martin’s latest mixtape “Malcolm and Martin were…Criminal Minded”, a 2010 re-work of the seminal album released by BDP in 1987. Politically charged, powerful lyrics over hard classic beats infused with Revolution’s production and signature cuts create a gritty soundscape sure to wake sleeping hip hop fans. This is a follow up to their funk inspired debut mixtape”Movement Music” and a lead in to the forthcoming album. Encouraged by the iconic men who fought for the everyman during a different time using different tools, the trio reverentially took on the moniker Malcolm & Martin as a siren call announcing new leaders armed with new tools to fight for modern-day liberation.
Malcolm & Martin’s first full-length commercial release, DJ Revolution Presents Malcolm and Martin “Life Doesn’t Frighten Me”, will be released on 2-1-2011 on SoulSpazm Records. Hit the jump to peep “Pigs Is Over”..
