CALLING AL S.I.N.ERS!!!!! Strength In Numbers is the movement and I Am Many is the prime minister. The Brooklyn born emcees debut LP on Creative Juices Music is out now.  The 13 cut album entirely produced by Logik Proof is without filler, and unlike anything currently floating around the over saturated blogosphere of post traumatic, underachieving mediocrity. SIN is one banger after another of fresh, modern, raw hip hop dense with witty, subversive subject matter and breathtaking wordplay.

In a world where image trumps skills, and beats are the equivalent of a Michael Bay film, I Am Many propels into the unexplored future of what hip hop can be while still maintaining the mood, energy, and raw skill that made you love it in the first place. Hard beats from Logik Proof that slam in the trunk and compliment the elaborate, imaginative, sometimes perverted bars of a true ny emcee.
