Album News: Hieroglyphics - The Kitchen

"Gun Fever" single available through Amazon - click on the album cover below!



Ever since the early 1990's rap music collective Hieroglyphics have laid the groundwork for the evolution of hip-hop to become one of the most influential aspects of popular American and international culture. Thrust back into the spotlight with their recent single "Gun Fever," a commentary on our culture's ongoing obsession with guns and violence, they are now set to release a new album on July 16th entitled The Kitchen, featuring 17 tracks woven together by the cutting, mixing and beat chopping skills of Sacramento DJs/producer crew The Sleeprockers.

Scratches, grooving bass lines and brass samples abound on the predominantly up-tempo record that fluidly combines archival audio, new productions and DJ skills with Hieroglyphics' compelling flows. Drawing its title from The Sleeprockers' practice of setting up their production equipment in their kitchen, as well as referencing the creative process of assembling the album's disparate ingredients into one cohesive record, The Kitchen promises to be an authentic presentation of Hieroglyphics' signature lyrical prowess.
Billboard Charting Producer @MikeWiLLMadeIt Announces #F#^kVerses EP

Super producer Mike WiLL Made It will release his first instrumental project, an EP titled #FuckVerses. The project, which doesn't yet have a release date but is expected this summer, will be released via Mike WiLL's label, EarDrumer's Entertainment. The artwork for #FuckVerses was designed by Kreemo.

At only 24 years of age, Mike WiLL Made It has solidified his place as one of music's most talented producers. Over the past 12 months, Mike WiLL has supplied hits for some of music's biggest names, including Kanye West, Rihanna, 2 Chainz, Future, Kelly Rowland, and more. Overall, Mike WiLL has produced 13 Billboard-charting singles; 9 of those singles have been certified gold or platinum by the RIAA. Despite that success, Mike WiLL continues to develop his sound, having recently confirmed work with Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, and more.

Throughout his career, Mike WiLL has always placed an emphasis on giving fans new and original music, first through his Est. In 1989 mixtape series, and now with #FuckVerses, an instrumental-driven EP that shows WiLL continuing to push boundaries. "When I was growing up, all the producers that were big at the time, I used to like hearing their instrumentals," says WiLL, explaining his inspiration for the EP. "With the Est. In 1989 series, and now with #FuckVerses, I wanted to show people the growth; from rap, to now R&B and Pop and Rock, my sound is so diverse, and these projects allow me to give my fans music and show off my growth at the same time."

The EP will feature no verses, though Mike WiLL promises some high profile artists will be featured on various hooks throughout the project. Overall, #FuckVerses, which Mike WiLL refers to as "My version of Jazz," will be more open and free-flowing than the structured tracks that Mike WiLL produces for other artists. "When I was growing up, my father would always make me listen to Jazz," says Mike, further explaining the comparison. "With some songs in Jazz, the track might just be instrumental, or, after a few minutes, an artist might start suddenly singing- it was just open that way, and that's how this project will be for me."

Mike WiLL Made It has plans to tour behind the project, and he's excited about the various ways that fans will be able to connect with this music, now and in the future. "With #FuckVerses, I feel like with music, the first thing that catches people is the hook and the beat," says Mike. "Later on, you'll hear full songs on some of these beats, and with some of these hooks – we'll take it to another level. But right now, this is for the listeners that are fans of good production and new sounds. It's a new genre of music, and it's called Eardruma."
