PR: Nefew Gears Up for Digital Release of Man vs. Many 9/6/11

Having spent the past few months performing on stages across Europe, Hip-Hop duo, Nefew, have managed to make time in their heavy schedules to get back in the studio and add to their earlier project MAN vs MANY.

Initially hosted by DJ Green Lantern, the project secured attention from a variety of platforms with songs such as The Fan, produced by and featuring Nottz (listen below), Game featuring Dwele and Live Life featuring Tyler Woods proving successful.

Boasting extra tracks and a video to accompany the single Fade, produced by German Hip-Hop heavyweight 7inch and featuring Liya, the new version of MAN vs MANY will be available through iTunes and all other digital online stores from September 6th.

This is the first official digital release from Nefew since their The Homesick EP, a collaborative effort with long time sponsor, Puma, back in 2009. With various other projects in the works for the duo, they have remained constant in delivering Hip-Hop and have been commended by both fans and industry professionals alike for their consistency and ability to craft songs which display concept and structure.

"A mixtape will never allow the listener to enjoy the full spectrum of the music. And since Man Vs Many is such a musical and well arranged project, it was only right to re-release it as an album. Real music fans requested it, so we've added three new songs and a video to go along with it and I'm sure the people will appreciate it even more now that they get to here all the facets of the songs" - Polemikk

"It just didn't feel not right to simply leave Man vs. Many as a mixtape with all the tags and drops. Our fans are used to quality projects from us so we never had second thought re-releasing it. The three additional songs match the LP perfectly and they make it even more versatile and interesting. - PA Double

Hip Hop Icon Burns Down The House In A "Blaze Of Glory"

Los Angeles, CA, Sept 13, 2011
 
Hip Hop and Rap Icon Stanley Howse, Notoriously Known as Flesh n Bone, Founding Member of Legendary Group Bone Thugs n Harmony, Announces the Release of "Blaze Of Glory" His First Solo Album in Over Eleven Years. Expected to Hit Stores and Online Outlets on September 13, 2011.

"The microphone is like my pistols and I'm going out blazing. I've been through hell and I'm still there." says Flesh N Bone. Flesh has had time to plan and give full attention to hard hitting details straight out of the gate.

He takes listeners on a journey of his experiences in life including his incarceration of 10 years.
 
"Blaze Of Glory" has interesting layers of skits to add more substance, element, and decoration that add a cinematic feel. "Blaze Of Glory" will be released on RBC Records and Flesh n Bone Global labels. The track "Heartaches" breaks down the story of Flesh's plight. "Blaze Of Glory" also touches on his love for his grandparents and members of his family suffering from drug addiction. There is even a personal story about him and his brother setting his grandparents house on fire when they were kids. There is a definite message of overcoming struggles to pursue goals and remain resilient through all of life's hardships.
 
In a recent interview Flesh n Bone says "I am the creator of my category. In other words, Bone Thugs n Harmony single-handedly created a style that brought a change for the better to hip hop and to this day you still hear our style emulated, not just in hip hop but in everything from Reggaeton to R&B, etc."
 
"My approach is the controversial element. I'm not going to name names but where you see so many rappers come and go because of their wack approach of making whole albums where they talk about their cars, jewelry, clothes, etc., you're not going to hear that kind of fantasy stuff from me. With that kind of subject matter, you can't touch your fans or carry them through those hard times when they need it most, nor will the game bless you with longevity." says Flesh n Bone.
 
The album features Bone Thugs n Harmony, Long-time Bone Thugs n Harmony Producers DJ Uneek & Thin C, platinum mix master Dave Banta, up and coming producer Desmond DSP Powell, and is blessed with contributors Reticom Films and Eyelevel Pictures. The album cover was crafted by Gary Lockwood, Freehand Profit, and features imagery using Flesh n Bone's facial image and incorporated a cross bone and skull to create an x-ray-like piece of art which represents flesh and represents bone in one image.
