Masta Killa Announces New Album Selling My Soul @NatureSounds


Masta Killa Announces New Album: Selling My Soul

Courtesy Nature Sounds.

Masta Killa may not be the most high-profile member of the Wu-Tang Clan, but he's undoubtedly among the most consistent. The last original member to go solo, Killa has released two critically acclaimed albums in No Said Date and Made In Brooklyn, and has repeatedly stolen the show on recent Wu classics like Ghostface's Fishscale, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx Pt. 2 and RZA's Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack. Now, more than six years after the release of his last studio album, Masta Killa is back with Selling My Soul, a brand new collection to be released December 11th, 2012 through Nature Sounds and Royal Lion Music.

The title Selling My Soul may imply something sinister, but it has a deeper meaning for Masta Killa. "The music for this project was more in a soulful chamber," he explains. "Anything from the inner self is a part of the soul. I put my soul into my music, and I'm in the business of selling it." Featuring production from 9th Wonder, Mathematics, PF Cuttin, and more, Selling My Soul is a cohesive collection from an artist who doesn't feel pressured to change his sound. "I would describe it as soul and substance," says MK. "Soulful music and lyrics of substance."

While fans will undoubtedly be excited for Selling My Soul, some may be confused, as it was initially announced that Masta Killa's latest album would be titled Loyalty Is Royalty. "This is a totally separate project," Killa explains. "Loyalty Is Royalty is more feature-oriented…it's the kind of material that my fans normally expect me to produce. The people will still get Loyalty Is Royalty. I just felt the need to give them some soul first."

In addition to the new album, Masta Killa is also launching a new website, which currently has exclusive pre-orders of the album. At mastakillamusic.com, fans can now order the standard edition of the album, as well as a deluxe version. Limited to only 200 copies, the deluxe edition comes in a custom hand-numbered box with a lyric book, autographed poster, MK wool cap, and download card giving access to all three MK albums plus his live album. In addition, Masta Killa has teamed up with RAW Rolling Papers to include a handful of RAW papers and an exclusive "Ooh Baby I Like It RAW" T-shirt in each deluxe box, paying tribute to the late Ol' Dirty Bastard, who is featured on Selling My Soul. Both the standard and deluxe versions will ship from mastakillamusic.com by December 4th, one week prior to the album hitting stores.

Gearing up to release their latest offering, The Rise of the Antihero, Hip-Hop duo Nefew have garnered support from energy drink giant, Red Bull. This union sees the double act made up of Polemikk and PA Double act as Ambassadors for the beverage, which is recognized as the world’s most popular energy drink.

“We’ve always been fans of the Red Bull products and I feel that we have similar values when it comes to our products,” Polemikk explains. “We are excited that they have offered us this opportunity as we are constantly looking for ways to separate ourselves from the norm.”

Nefew’s appreciation of Hip-Hop and the culture as well as their universal approach to creating music continues to be recognized by fans and media all around the world. This latest accolade inspires the duo to keep doing what they have successfully done for the last five years. With a slew of projects on deck that will see them well into 2013, the potential for this duo to increase their global presence is undeniable.

“Getting the acknowledgment from a renowned brand like Red Bull has been another sign of approval for our craft. It feels great to be appreciated by leaders of lifestyle and sports,” shares PA Double. “This is just another step bringing us closer to our goals and we are thankful for their support, “ he concludes.

The Rise of the Antihero will be available for free download later this year in conjunction with Red Bull.
