North Carolina’s own Supastition releases 'The Blackboard EP', a FREE 8-track digital EP. The project serves as a “thank you” to the listeners who continued to support his music after his sudden departure from the music business in 2010. The Blackboard is about returning to the basics of emceeing and rediscovering that vintage sound that Supastition has been known for since his debut album in 2002.
It’s time for another Elevated Ruffians album! The duo of Elevated Soul and the Magnificent Ruffians are back at it with Kingsmen! After the huge success of their first double cd, (Magnificent Soul) the Elevated Ruffians knew they had to work together again to create more fresh hip hop for the fans. This album however has a specific dedication to the great Ben E. King. Hence the name, “Kingsmen”. Each song on this EP has a beat that was flipped or sampled or inspired by a previous work of Ben E. King.

"The Genesis of the Omega sounded better than the start of the ending. I was just trying to be slick with the words. The Genesis, you know that's the beginning of The Bible. The Omega, that's the end. On some punk shit, read too many comic books. lol” - Sean P!
