PR: Wordburglar - "3rdburglar" & "Rhyme O'Clock" Video

A strong contender for the most likely-to-be-quoted rapper at the water cooler, Wordburglar’s lyrically potent oeuvre runs the gamut from thoughtfully casual to ridiculously ludicrous. There’s just something about the way he puts words together that keeps people nodding their heads and smiling their mouths. With finely constructed whimsical lyrics, a sharp sense of humor and a dedication to true-school rap, ‘Burg has carved a niche for himself with audiences across Canada and beyond. Showcasing a wide variety of concepts and styles, the new record “3rdburglar” has something for everyone and everything for someone. If you’re a person who enjoys things, don’t sleep on Wordburglar.

Aside from tearing up 10 tracks on 2011's Backburner: Heatwave album, its been 2 years since Wordburglar last dropped a full-length solo album (2009's underground hit Burgie’s Bassement) and it’s with great pleasure that we’re preparing to unleash 3rdburglar, Wordburglar’s third full-length release of all-new material. Featuring 14 tracks of original lyrics, beats & cuts blended meticulously with ‘Burg’s patented style, every track is a stand-out. 3rdburglar also features production from Juno-nominated producer Fresh Kils & long-time collaborators Beatmason, Timbuktu and Uncle Fes, with guest appearances from Canadian rap cohorts More or Les, Chokeules, Garthim-Master and Timbuktu as well as Los Angeles underground rap legend Riddlore (Chillin Villain Empire/Project Blowed). We’re looking forward to sharing.

MP3: The One (feat. Knightstalker, Praverb) - "Year of the Dragon"

From Praverb:

New Music: The One (feat. Knightstalker, Praverb the Wyse, Cira, Dj Fejm) - Year of the Dragon

Polish beatmaker The One contacted me (Praverb the Wyse) about this song a few months ago and we agreed that the title "Year of the Dragon" would work. We recruited the insanely talented German emcee Knightstalker, Polish emcee Cira, and Polish Turntablist Dj Fejm. The international vibe continues as Dichter 2 Productions completed the mixing and mastering of this song.
