PR: Emcee Wordsmith Readies Third LP "King Noah" - JUNE 19


From Nik @ Ballin PR:

PR: Emcee Wordsmith Readies Third LP "King Noah" - JUNE 19

Since starting his career in the 2007, Wordsmith has been a thinking man's emcee. On his third solo project, King Noah, the Baltimore, MD rapper has created a straightforward hip-hop album, no swag. no gimmicks. With his trademark keen wordplay, King Noah (NU Revolution Entertainment) is in part a celebration of his young son, Kingston Noah Parker, and part blue print for all young men in America. Featured guests include ELiM, Phil Ade and K. Sparks. Production is shared by Centric, Capish, Certified, Rednaz Beats, Strada, DJ Eclipse, and Benny Rome.

Whether it be “Music for the Masses,” "Never Be the Same" feat. ELiM, “Eye for the Spotlight" feat. Phil Ade, Wordsmith tackles topical subjects such as hate, racial profiling, achieving your dreams, and leadership over head-nodding jazz infused beats reminiscent of hip-hop's golden era.

Hardly new to the scene, Wordsmith originally caught the attention of critics in 2009 after teaming-up with the legendary Chubb Rock after they released Bridging the Gap, an album which was powered by the lead single, “OId 2 the New.” The next year, he released his debut solo LP Vintage Experience (2010), which garnered him praise for his creativity and witty wordplay. “After only a few moments of speaking with Wordsmith one can see his advantage over other rappers…” stated Allhiphop.com. In addition, the album was lauded in outlets such as Hip Hop Weekly, Washington Post, Urb, HipHopDX, 2 Dope Boyz, Sohh, and MTV Mixtape Mondays.

Wordsmith garnered an ASCAPLUS Award in 2011-2012 and he licensed tracks with Nintendo, ESPN, VH1, Golf Channel, Six Flags, ABC, CBS and PBS.

Born in Germany, the son of a U.S. Army Colonel, Wordsmith traveled the world and developed a broad musical palette from an early age. “I went to school at the United Nations because by ten years old," explains the worldly Wordsmith, "I had friends from every corner of the globe. Having that experience has just made me more open to different cultures and experiences--and I try to convey that in my music."

If Wordsmith's goal was to create another heartfelt album his son can live by, King Noah is already a success.

King Noah will be available June 19.

POE BOY MUSIC GROUP / I.M.G. / ATLANTIC RECORDS PRESENTS...

R.I.P. Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes (May 27, 1971 April 25, 2002) @blockstarz


From Block Starz:

R.I.P. Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes (May 27, 1971 – April 25, 2002)

(Los Angeles, CA) April 25, 2012 marks the ten year anniversary for the passing of Grammy Award-winning TLC group member Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes. "The word anniversary means a celebration. For us her death will never be a celebration, it’s still something that hurts," says T-Boz. Group member Chilli agrees, "Lisa is our sister. You never get over losing a family member. We love her and we miss her and that isn’t ever going to change."

To commemorate the passing, German-American digital label Block Starz Music LLC (www.blockstarzmusic.com) has made a previously unreleased collaboration between Bootleg of The Dayton Family and Left Eye. Recorded a few months before her death, Left Eye‘s verse on the song "Fantasies" is reportedly the only 16-bar verse she ever recorded as a feature. A portion of the proceeds from "Fantasies" will go to the Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes Foundation.

2012 is also the 20th anniversary for the group and is filled with many surprises for TLC fans worldwide. Chilli and T-Boz are very excited to be executive-producing a biopic on the group’s story in conjunction with VH1. “This project is truly a dream come true for us,” says Chilli.

"What's Love Got To Do With It" scribe Kate Lanier will pen the project, which documents TLC’s rise to fame with 1991's "Ooooooohhh… On The TLC Tip" and their follow-up success with 1994's "CrazySexyCool," and eventually selling more than 65 million albums worldwide making them the biggest-selling girl group in history.

In addition to the movie, TLC is working on a 20th anniversary package, which will include tour dates, an album project with new music and several remixes on some of their favorite hits. Chilli and T-Boz say they are looking forward to giving new music to their eagerly awaiting fans and returning to the stage.
