Wild Style was originally slated for release on 5-29-2012, but as Chuuwee hunkers down in the studio and puts the final flourishes to the album, it will be delayed until July/August. To hold over fans until then, Chuuwee has finished another mixtape, The Tape, which will be surfacing soon (and a second mixtape release before Wild Style hits is also in the works) and he also let go of the third leak from Wild Style today, which you can find here:

PR: Nation Ruckus - "Against the Wall" (f/ Sir Jay, Jonathan Emile)
Fans can download this new summer single in anticipation for NR’s debut album Boombox Manifesto dropping September 2012 .
As summer is about to hit our doorstep, Montreal’s own Nation Ruckus drops the new single ''AGAINST THE WALL''. In pure MTL fashion, the track is an eclectic mash-up which features reggae artist Sir Jay and rapper Jonathan Emile. For music lovers in need of a sonic fix, the song is now available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/against-wall-feat.-sir-jay/id534735638?l=fr .
Catchy yet underground to the fullest, the song is loyal to NR’s signature sound. Perfectly fitting for basement parties and cruises in the ''whip'', the joint is a heavy reggae-influenced rap manifesto. Reminiscent of old school hip hop, it finds NR’s front man (rapper E. aka Milk-E Fresh) spitting socially conscious rhymes over a party beat.
Next Tuesday, Nation Ruckus will be releasing the official music video for ''AGAINST THE WALL''. Directed by In-1 Studios, who produced NR’s previous video for ''Lockdown'' (youtu.be/NQa0Dul9UC4), the clip will showcase NR and its affiliates alongside some of the city’s best dancers.
The group's debut album, Boombox Manifesto, one of this year’s most promising projects is set to drop September 18th under their independent label Big Dreamz Records.
