New York, NY (August 2012) – Block McCloud & DJ Waxwork’s digital EP, True Lies, is now available via iTunes. The EP features dirty, clean, instrumental and acapella versions of three tracks off of the upcoming full-length album, Four Walls, to be released August 14 via McCloud’s own Disturbia Music Group.

Tracks on the EP include: “True Lies” featuring Vinnie Paz and Hasan Salaam, “Hallucinations” and “Killer Karnivale” featuring Diabolic and Thirstin Howl the 3rd. Videos for True Lies and Hallucinations are already online (links below).

In addition to these songs Four Walls will also include collaborations with such gritty east coast emcees as Ill Bill, Slaine, Reef The Lost Cauze, King Magnetic, Jus Allah, R.A. The Rugged Man and Celph Titled. In regards to Four Walls’s concept, McCloud explains, “I consider it almost a soundtrack album, all of the music and my lyrics revolve around the central character. He’s a crazy guy who runs a killer carnival and who believes that he was captured and experimented on because he knows too much about the true order of the world. I guess you can loosely say I’m the crazy guy.”

McCloud’s hip hop credits include being a founding member of the group Brooklyn Academy (which has included Jean Grae, Thirstin Howl The III and Pumpkinhead at times), and is now a member of Army Of The Pharaohs (which includes Jedi Mind Tricks, Esoteric, Apathy, Celph Titled, Reef The Lost Cauze, Outerspace and more). Under his singing alias of Captain Hook, Block has also added his voice to tracks by such artists as Sean Price, Method Man, Canibus, Jedi Mind Tricks, The Clipse and more. DJ Waxwork from Germany was an integral part of the Snowgoons production team on German Lugers, Black Snow and others as well as being a well-established live DJ.

"I'm proud to announce that my album with Young Zee:
"One Crazy Weekend" is available in stores and online now.

One Crazy Weekend only $8.99 on!

We put the whole project together in one weekend
in a crazy studio/party environment and the album
has that kind of vibe to it.  Check out our first two reviews:

With features by Pace Won, Rah Digga, DU, Yah Yah and Young Zee's son
Krash Battle, "One Crazy Weekend" is sure to excite hardcore hip hop fans.
Zee uses his signature off the wall, inappropriate style but somehow
still comes across as the cool likable guy that he is.  I contributed my
'classic' beats that people know me for from albums like "The Only
Color That Matters is Green".  It makes a great combination.

One Crazy Weekend only $8.99 on!

Thank you as always
for the support, I do this
thing complete independently
and I appreciate every bit of support
you all give me.  Thanks again,  -Mr. Green
