The album track "Wild West" features 2011 NOLA HipHop Award Album Of The Year winner Lyrikill, who says "this Solo & Lyriqs album is the heat rock. One of the best together projects I've heard in a minute." Of the project, SOLO says "Knowing I have friends as talented as Lyriqs and Pro Prospek, I had to record The Grind album. Even if I didn't have enough time or money, I was going to find a way to make it happen."

News: Man Bites Dog Records Announces Album Release Schedule

From Audible Treats:

News: Man Bites Dog Records Announces Album Release Schedule For Remainder Of 2012

The first half of 2012 has proven to be a triumphant year for Man Bites Dog Records, and now, the burgeoning hip-hop label is excited to announce a string of forthcoming releases. The rest of the year promises to be busy, as the label prepares for high profile releases from MHz Legacy, Stu Bangas & Vanderslice, Wais P, Bronze Nazareth, and Double AB & Dub Sonata.

Man Bites Dog Records first emerged in 2010, establishing its presence with the release of Killah Priest's Three Day Theory and Copywrite's Life and Times of Peter Nelson. With both albums receiving critical acclaim, MBDR followed the next year with Vast Aire's OX 2010: A Street Odyssey, and in 2012, the label has continued to roll, with a new album from Copywrite, God Save The King, in addition to The Swashbuckler LP, from producers Kount Fif & R.M.L.

On August 7th, Copywrite will release God Save The King: Proper English Version, a remixed re-release of God Save The King that includes features from high profile UK artists such as Context, Dru Blu, Mystro, and SAS. On August 28th, producers Stu Bangas & Vanderslice will release Diggaz With Attitude, featuring Roc Marciano, The Alchemist, Evidence, Apathy, Ill Bill, Vinnie Paz, Blaq Poet, Celph Titled, Esoteric, and more. Their video for lead single "The Gusto," featuring a who's-who in the hip hop world with Apathy, Roc Marciano, The Alchemist, and Evidence, racked up over 20k views in the first 72 hours it was released on YouTube.

On September 18th, MBDR will release the latest effort from rapper Double AB, Media Showers, a collaborative effort with producer Dub Sonata that includes features from Cannibal Ox, Evidence, Rhymefest, Sean Price, and more. The duo's first video, for the single "Lord Knows What" with Roc Marciano, will be released in the coming weeks.

On October 9th, Wais P, will release his debut solo album Pimpin' Saved My Life. The album will include production from Harry Fraud, Statik Selektah, The Bizness, Stu Bangas, and Vanderslice, and the project will also include guest features from the likes of Action Bronson, Smoke DZA, Joey Bada$$, Kokaine, and more. Prior to the album's release, Wais P will release a free mixtape, Pussy Rich.

To wrap a productive fourth quarter, MBDR will release their biggest album to date, a new album from MHz Legacy, the beloved Ohio crew that includes Copywrite, RJD2, Jakki Da Motamouth, Tage Future, and Camu Tao, who passed away in 2008. Despite serving as one of the most influential collection of artists in underground hip-hop for over a decade, MHz, to date, has released only one album, Table Scraps, which was a collection of singles and b-sides. This new album is expected to offer some of the artists' most accomplished work-to-date. Although not yet finished, the album is currently slated to include production from RJD2, Harry Fraud, Marco Polo, Stu Bangas and Illmind, in addition to features from Ill Bill & Slaine (La Coka Nostra), Oh No, and Slug. Longtime fans of the group will also be happy to hear that the group ensured that Camu Tao's voice be heard and thus incorporated never before heard verses on several songs.

As Man Bites Dog Records uses the rest of 2012 to solidify itself as one of independent hip-hop's premier labels, the label expects even bigger things for 2013 and beyond. "Making an impact in the music business takes a lot of hard work and talent from a whole team of people," says label founder R.M.L. "We're lucky to work with talented artists that have been working hard to make music that will impact the future. I am truly excited for all our fans, new and old."

Mixtape: Con-Man - "New England Minute"

Courtesy Wanja Lange.

New England Minute is Con-Man's third project of 2012. It is entirely produced by Dj Low Cut from utilizing the instrumentals off his NY Minute album.  In the beginning we intended to just use a few beats but we quickly realized that they all were such high quality.  Since we are located and from the New England area, we decided to create our own New England version.  The results have been incredible and we feel this is Con-Man's best full length offering thus far.  It also features other New England artists like The Verbal Surgeon, Rumorz, The My.N.O.R.S., and Sicarii.
