Grammy Nominated Rapper/Producer DICE RAW of The Roots
Previews New Concept Album Based on NYT Bestseller
"The New Jim Crow"

Philadelphia, PA - It's 2013, but if you look at the injustice today, for millions of Black men especially, it feels more like we're in the 1900s. Guess what?...Jimmie's Back!

On the heels of his 2013 Grammy nomination for his contributions to The Roots album, Undun, Dice Raw is set to preview his new concept album entitled "JIMMIE'S BACK", inspired by the New York Times bestselling book, "The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness" by Dr. Michelle Alexander.

Anticipated Release Date: August 4, 2013.

As a lifelong resident of Philadelphia, Dice Raw is no stranger to the perils of the streets. Though his own story is one of triumph, with the album "Jimmie's Back", Dice is painting his own unique picture of the plight of men in urban environments. Through song, his take on the struggles, temptations, and injustices suffered especially by minority men is one for the ages. THIS ALBUM IS ALREADY BEING CALLED A "NECESSARY CLASSIC" BY INDUSTRY VETS AND TASTEMAKERS.

The first single, "OVER", featured a crooning Dice Raw on the hook, in between his always clever but simplistically-easy flow on this tune about giving up.

In 2007, I walked into a basement that would change my art forever. I realize that sentence is super dramatic, and equally as rape-y, but it’s the only way I can describe it. It was dark. Small. Low ceilings. Filled with cigarette smoke. I sat down on the couch, while Norman Krates [The Arkeologists] prepped his MPC2000 for our first session.

I ate a submarine sandwich. He rolled a joint. I swallowed a Percocet. He chopped up a sample. And I began writing what would become Kneecaps. A song, along with Laundry Room, that would make critics and music listeners look past the court jester of an artist I once was. A song that would literally change my life.

In 2013, I returned to the same basement to conduct an interview with Norman for a special 5 year anniversary release of my debut record, The B.O.O.K. While listening to him reminisce, I began having flashbacks of those sessions. I felt like 2007 again. A few days later I went back to hang out. Hanging out would result in Norm playing me beats. Which would result in me writing The Reunion Tour. We sat and listened to that song for an hour straight. It was 2007 again. We decided to keep going till we hit ten songs. All raw. All songs recorded on a $200 8-track in one day. All first takes. Embrace the imperfections. No promotion. Keep it basement.

Ladies and gentlemen…
