FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Los Angeles, CA (October 23, 2010) – Hip Hop group and dance crew The Ranger$ are set to release their highly anticipated new album, “The Takeover,” on Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010 on RBC Records. “The Takeover” is now available for pre-order on iTunes.
The album’s debut single “Make Ya Girl” premiered on Rhythmic Contemporary Hit Radio, and is currently gaining momentum across the country. The new video for “Make Ya Girl” (directed by BLKDMNDS) has reached over 186,000 views on the world’s largest video-sharing website.
To commemorate the release of their album, The Ranger$ are inviting their fans to join them for a special album release celebration at Skate Depot in Cerritos, CA.
The Ranger$ are now leaking another track from their forthcoming new album entitled “Lay You Down.”
The final track listing for “The Takeover” is: 01. Switch 02. Takeover (feat. Hardhead) 03. Like I Should 04. Damn Shawty 05. Make Ya Girl (feat. Kid Ink) 06. Treat You Better 07. Main Girl 08. Need a Minute 09. No More (feat. Kid Ink) 10. Hotel Room 11. Tear It Off 12. Slowly (feat. Shawn T) 13. Young Boss 14. Right There 15. My Day (bonus track) 16. What's Good (feat. Roscoe Umali) [bonus track]
Just wanted to let you know that I put up a small video for "Sorry I'm Late". No, there's no home video footage or anything fancy like in other trailers. It's just the individual song artworks (each song has it's own) and samples of all the songs. There's also a preview of "All I Got to Give" ft. Marsha Ambrosius - the acoustic version! :)
The album will be released November 16th, but if you order from FatBeats.com, they will ship the CD out early. Those who pre-order will receive it in time for our original Nov. 2nd release date. We can REALLY use some more pre-orders --- it'll help us secure more marketing funds.
The daily struggle to reach success can be a sentimental journey filled with agony and solace. Armageddon guides us on this passage of life with his latest single "Get Yours." This time he takes on a different route than his prior single "It's Over." As the keys lead in, the melody captures a new sentiment, evoking Armageddon to maintain his lyrical quality with a rare finesse. Filmed in the Bronx, NIIM the Dream Productions visually captures Armageddon's description dialogue for the official music video. This single is featured on Armageddon's upcoming EP The Journal Vol. 1: Rebirth on Geddy Music/ SoFlo Entertainment.

To mark their 20th year, famed hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics are set to release a project unlike anything they have done before: the creation and release of a fine art piece. The artwork titled “The Valley of Kings” will debut to the world on November 1, 2010 at www.whenartimitateslife.com, with only 300 canvas prints available. Created over the course of the last 12 months, the piece - said to represent the “supernatural” union between the crew and their musical journey - has been shown to no one outside of the Hieroglyphics camp. An extensive process involving storyboarding, photography, greenscreen, and graphic art was executed in its creation of the art, as well as tapping the talents of world-renowned aerosol artist EAZ ONE. The result is a masterpiece that will be numbered and signed by each member in the crew for every piece in the collection. All 300 will be shipped with authenticity certificates. Upon purchase, an exclusive download link will also be sent to your email address containing a Hieroglyphics megamix by DJ Equal, and a never-before-heard Hiero posse cut, "Reputation".
Sign up for more information today at whenartimitateslife.com and you stand to win The Valley Of Kings' original artist proof, the very first canvas delivered to the crew for final review. The artist proof is 40" x 40" and is signed by all Hiero members. The winner will be announced on November 28.
For almost twenty years, Hieroglyphics has been one of hip-hop’s most beloved entities. The one-two punch of Del Tha Funkee Homosapien’s 1992 debut album I Wish My Brother George Was Here (Elektra) and Souls Of Mischief’s ’93 Til Infinity (Jive) introduced listeners to a new kind of West Coast rapper. In an era where gangsta rap was standard issue, Del, Casual, Opio, Tajai, A-Plus, Phesto, Domino and Pep Love offered music from ordinary people with extraordinary skills. Casual’s debut Fear Itself (Jive) and Del’s sophomore album No Need For Alarm, both released in 1994, were Hiero’s last major-label albums save for Souls of Mischief’s 1995 offering No Man’s Land before the crew made the decision to go fully independent, releasing their own albums and coordinating their own tours. 15 years later, that three-eyed logo is a global brand, and Hieroglyphics is one of the undisputed forefathers of the sound, the hustle, and the ideology of underground hip-hop. Their most recent release was last year’s Montezuma’s Revenge.
The Valley Of Kings makes Hieroglyphics the first hip-hop collective to release artwork under When Art Imitates Life (WAIL), the brainchild of King Tech of the World Famous Wake Up Show, MTV’s Sway Calloway, and Los Angeles creativity house Scene Four. Previous releases from WAIL include collaboration pieces with RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan as well as Shavo of System Of A Down. There will be an early viewing opportunity taking place on October 29, 2010 via a GOLDEN TICKET sent to the first 500 people signed into the interest list for more information.
