PR: Newark's Emcee Composition


From Artist PR:

Newark's Emcee Composition

* http://www.myspace.com/emceecomposition *

Emcee Composition, better known as just Composition or Comp to some, was born in Bronx, NY and raised in Newark, NJ. Living in NJ for most of his life with no doubt reflects in his rhymes and technique. Growing up listening to Nas, The Fugee’s, Outkast, The Roots, Kool G Rap, and Goodie Mob made his taste extremely fined tuned as far as hip hop is concerned. With a firm belief that hip hop should be about inspiring the masses and evolution of the genre, it’s no wonder Composition has worked with the lyrical artists such as Elzhi and Joelle Ortiz.

Most recently, Emcee Composition has taken the sound of hip hop to new levels as far as content and music structure. Combining an unseen mixture of classical and hip hop, along with a deep context and wordplay focused delivery has resulted in a very dangerous combination. His debut album “Garden Statements”, releases June 21, 2011, has made an undeniable impact among names not known for working with unknown artists. Now Comp has connected with producer Kno of Cunninlynguists, who is rarely known for working on projects outside of his camp. It’s obvious that he has talented artists attention, and once you hear his music it’s obvious it’s for a very good reason.

In a time where the goal of a hip hop artist of an artist is to party hard, Comp’s goal is making the hairs on your arm stand from amazement hip hop like his exists. If you enjoy artists who care more for their legacy than the money being made then you need to immediately get up on Emcee Composition.

Cormega, Redman & More Record - "I Made a Difference" Song


From Lamar @ Red Music:

Cormega, Redman & More Record - "I Made a Difference" Song

HIP-HOP ARTIST CORMEGA, REDMAN, STEELE, STIC MAN OF DEAD PREZ, LIL FAME OF MOP, Maya Azucena, and The Revelations TEAM UP TO RECORD "I MADE A DIFFERENCE" BENEFIT SONG IN SUPPORT OF SEAN PENN'S ORGANIZATION, JPRO.

DIGITIAL RELEASE JUNE 14, 2011 THROUGH SONY/RED DISTRIBUTION!

After a successful coat drive this past winter and performing at the Hip-Hop For Haiti concert at S.O.B.'s in New York, Cormega continues to use his talent to make positive contributions to the devastated island. His new song, "I Made A Difference," featuring Redman, General Steele from Cocoa Brovaz,  Stic Man from Dead Prez, Lil Fame from MOP, live band The Revelations, singer/songwriter Maya Azucena andmusician Jazimoto (who played keyboard) will be distributed digitally by Sony/RED Distribution, in conjunction with Whatevaok Entertainment, to online retailers with proceeds benefiting J/P Haiti Relief Organization (JPHRO - www.jphro.org).  The J/P Haitian Relief Organization is a registered non-profit charitable foundation established by actor, Sean Penn, to help the people of Haiti recover from the earthquake on January 12, 2010 that nearly wiped out the entire capital of Port-Au-Prince leaving over 300,000 dead and millions homeless.

Inspired by Cormega's visit to Haiti just 5 months after an earthquake, the heartfelt song is a tribute to Haitian resilience in such a dark time.  "The thing that grabbed me the most about Haiti is the spirit of its people.  They're in a situation that would break a lot of people. It was humbling when I went because there was rubble everywhere, people were living in tents and the things we take for granted like water were a luxury, yet I met Haitian people who we just grateful to be alive. I saw them partying, dancing, and enjoying their lives in the middle of all their troubles. They deserve all the help they can get," explains Cormega.

While a version of the song hosted by Haitian DJ Whoo Kidd has been leaked by Legal Hustle Records, the official song will be distributed digitally through Sony/RED Distribution on June 14th, 2011. "I decided to donate the proceeds from digital sales of 'I Made A Difference,' directly to Sean Penn's earthquake relief efforts because when I was in Haiti, I heard directly from the people and saw for myself the work that his organization was doing.  I gained a lot of respect for Sean Penn while I was in Haiti. Here you have an A-list actor who was out there wading through water, putting up tents helping the people. The media attention has shifted, yet the suffering still continues. His organization still continues to service those displaced by the earthquake, living in refugee camps. This song is dedicated to him and all the unsung heroes who continue to make a difference even when it seems like the world has moved on."

Many people within the Haitian American Community are ecstatic with Cormega's dedication and commitment to revitalizing and rebuilding since his visit after the disaster. Ernest Kebreau, the first Haitian American to be elected in the city of New York as the State Committee District Leader of the 86th Assembly stated... "If everyone plays a part and brings their ideas and resources to the table as Cormega has, we can collectively bring about the change that Haiti needs. I always say saving Haiti starts with me, meaning it starts with you. Cormega is a prime example of this."

"The song was originally scheduled for release on May 18th, Haitian Flag Day, a major holiday in Haiti, but the opportunity to distribute through SONY/RED came through.  But if you think about it, the release date for the song doesn't really matter.  The suffering still continues and we need to send a message to the Haitian people that we still remember them and some of us are still trying to make a difference."  "I Made A Difference," will be digitally released with all proceeds going toward JPHRO. To make your donation directly to the organization and for more information on Sean Penn's efforts in Haiti and JPHRO, visit www.jphro.org.Hear more about the making of "I Made A Difference," on Legal Hustle TV at Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2q0eXnM7Og .

Cormega's sixth studio album, Cormega Raw Forever, will be a two disc set to include a greatest hits compilation and a second disc with all new tracks recorded with his live band, The Revelation.
