Block McCloud & DJ Waxwork "True Lies" Digital EP Out Now!
Courtesy Jerry Graham.
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.

Miranda pays homage and gives you a musical journey with this sensational tribute! So please enjoy and help spread the love!! "I'm Rick James bitch"!!!
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.
