New Audio: La Coka Nostra "Malverde Market" & "My Universe" f/ Vinnie Paz
Always known for tackling controversial topic matter, the group’s sophomore project, Masters Of The Dark Arts, (release date 7-31-2012) finds them once again in torch-bearing mode, addressing subjects that most artists shy away from as ILL BILL illustrates “as conceptually and musically dark as this album appears to be, there's also a flip side layer to it that you may not notice until you listen to it a few times. Masters Of The Dark Arts is a storm before the calm and a celebration of the good things in life that can only be achieved by walking directly into the heart of darkness and facing your inner demons head on."
While the group’s roster has been trimmed slightly due to Everlast having to leave the group (for personal reasons), La Coka Nostra returns re-invigorated and fresh off of a recently completed seventeen-city European tour which saw them rock crowds in eleven different countries “I think we approached Masters Of The Dark Arts with a chip on our shoulder and really took it back to our original mission of hardcore Hip-Hop amidst all the circus bullshit that is so prevalent in the current landscape of the genre. We are aware of the perception that somehow the group has suffered a loss we can’t recover from and in response we made an album that is the most conceptually focused and hardest hitting soundscape in the group’s history” Slaine asserts.
La Coka Nostra’s Masters Of The Dark Arts will impact on 7-31-2012 and be released by Fat Beat Records.
Included are the first two leaks from La Coka Nostra’s Masters Of The Dark Arts:

If you're looking for an artist that has substance & soul to their music then look no further that Krusaphixxx. When listening to this emcee you will be able to close your eyes and go on a musical journey of fun, pain, happiness and excitement!!
Krusaphixxx was born Jeremy Roberts in Mississippi to Hazel Roberts. At the age of 2, Ms. Roberts, moved herself and young Kru to Memphis, Tn. There they experience many hardships and road blocks; to escape most of the violence and havoc in the hood Kru turned to rapping. Kru’s been rapping since age 13. Kru released his first solo project at the tender age of 15 entitled “Trapped” under the guidance of a man he prefers not to name.
At age 19 Kru was signed to a regional deal with Priority Records which fell through on contract disputes. Kru also was signed to Infinity Records a subsidiary of Capitol Records in 2000. That deal didn’t last as of they kept Kru on the self for two years and both sides felt it was best to part ways. So Kru along with his brother Treflon and close friend Tony Snow started their own label (P.L.U.T.O. Entertainment/P-9 ENT.) in 2002 after being sold so many dreams, so many dreams!!!
Since then Kru and his brothers Da Delta Boy Click (D.B.C.) along with the rest of the P.L.U.T.O.A.P.E.S. have been trying to get it in. Kru has performed in many concerts and worked with many local, underground and major artists, but his goals far exceed those accomplishments. He wants to be one of the most successful label owners and artist in music history. Krusaphixxx was named by Robert Kidd aka BK Juice when they were touring Mississippi together. Krusaphixxx was the perfect name because the truth in his lyrics made people want to crucify him. So, BK told him he was the Jesus Christ of Rap. Now, the way his music and lyrics touch people, the name is fitting.
Krusaphixxx performs live all over Mississippi, Tennessee, Kansas, and the entire DIRTY SOUTH! "Every show is special to me,” says Kru, "the fans are the reason I do what I do.” Nothing feels better than interacting with true fans from the stage."
Kru’s biggest influences are Scarface, The Ghetto Boys, 8 Ball and MJG, Beanie Seagal, Jay Z, Jadakiss, Mc Ren, & U.G.K.
