PR: The Silversmiths Press Release

From Obese America:

PR: The Silversmiths Press Release

Agent Orange took a one way flight from his streetsweeper courtesy of
SPTA (Speeding Passenger Train Airways) and still didn't let that stop
him from producing an album full of bangers for the grumpy old men of

TSTOP even dusted off his microphone
for some tracks, AND constructed a beat so fierce the goddess AthenA
felt compelled to tear it to shreds. Go ahead, try to deny the
magnitude of boots left by their lonesome.

Follow the Silversmiths (JON?DOE and Sankofa) as they time travel from
1999's White Collar Criminals debut all the way to now, where they're
old and stuff.+

Need namedrops? JON?DOE has worked with KRS-ONE, Casual (dopest member
of Hiero), Son Doobie (Funkdoobiest ahoy!) and even The Hitman (no,
not the one you're thinking of who Dre signed and forgot between
taking HGH and whatever else he was doing). Sankofa has worked with
CunninLynguists, Kashal-Tee, Nick Sweepah, Noah23, and a whole bunch
of other people his advanced age has caused him to forget.

Shucks, you might even find that purchasing the whole kit and caboodle
gets you some goodies.

+stuff means "Scoreolympics!"

This message has been brought to you by *EARMUFFS*, reminding you ODB
was for the children but his cuss words weren't. <-get yours here
