"Since "Standing Ovation" is the intro as well as the title of my album, I wanted it to be bold, direct and easily understood. It's one of those coming of age type joints that details my journey and how thankful I am for the people who've stuck by my side and supported my growth."

‘Beautiful Raw’ is the highly anticipated 4th release from Chicago duo Qwel & Maker, whose previous releases and worldwide touring has raised them as the bar against which all raw complex underground hip hop is to be measured.

This new album is a testimony to the hard work and thoughtful care that the two put into all of their music. Each carefully crafted track could stand alone as a highlight, claiming rightful shine as the lead single, yet the album as a whole complete work is a single seamless journey. The tale of the humble plant, once sewn deep beneath the concrete of the inner city slums, that against all odds has grown up through the concrete toward the light. Proof of hope is the recurrent theme and grimy raw is the soundscape.

"They said it couldnt be done, this one’s for provin’ ‘em wrong, seems only suitable it’s beautiful raw. Planted the seed beneath the street but it was rooted too strong, grew to the sun and called it beautiful raw."

In an unexpected and rare turn for the team, Qwel and Maker have commissioned a little help on this album, pulling collaborative magic from fellow veterans such as The Grouch (Living Legends), Qwel’s fellow Typical Cat Qwazaar, Swamburger (Soliloquists Of Sound), Wes Restless, Scud One, D-Styles & more. The guest lyricists all help air out the record from Qwel’s dense spitfire lyrics.

Love, life, regret, money, drugs, joy, sorrow, lies, truth… but most of all hope, is what this album is about.

LOS ANGELES, CA – L.A. Symphony’s Cookbook, and DJ Rhettmatic of the World Famous Beat Junkies collaborate to release the Phantom Menace, the first installment from Cookbook’s EP series.

Whether he’s performing live, or producing, Cookbook remains consistent in recording tunes for Hip-Hop fans to enjoy. Having released numerous albums over the past twelve years (including music with his crew L.A. Symphony) Cookbook maintains his reputation as an Entertainer. His latest project, CBEPs, is a series of unique EPs where Cookbook collaborates with a different producer for each one. Teaming up with Cookbook for the first installment is none other than DJ Rhettmatic of the World Famous Beat Junkies. These talented musicians came together to release the Phantom Menace, boasting the perfect blend of raw lyrics over hard-hitting beats.

“I wanted to tell a different part of my story that I’ve never spoke on before. This is the most honest, and rawest version of Cookbook yet. In these songs I go harder than I have in the past, and I don’t hold anything back. The goal was to work with a producer whose sound is different than mine, and who would draw out a different part of me. I feel we met that goal with Phantom Menace,” says Cookbook.

The Phantom Menace EP is set to release this summer with the first single dropping this month.

Cookbook is a musician with an extraordinary work ethic. He’s toured the world, and has worked with many artists, and producers alike. Having earned a respectable level of success, Cookbook continues to build his legacy as an entertainer as he pushes to new heights in his career.

DJ Rhettmatic is a driving force behind California’s first turntable band, the World Famous Beat Junkies. As an accomplished producer, Rhettmatic has certainly earned the recognition he deserves. In an ever-changing industry Rhettmatic continues to evolve. His versatility, and devotion to his craft proves why he is one of the most sought after musicians today.
