(Brooklyn, NY) Rapper Soul King, is excited to announce the release of his new album, Supreme Era Vol. 2. The album, a follow-up to his 2010 release, Supreme Era Vol. 1, is out now on Noor Science/Clear Label Records and boasts features from Planet Asia, Chace Infinite and more.
Supreme Era Vol. 2 draws its name not only from Soul King's skills behind the microphone, but also from the inspiration that SoulKing pulls from above. "Supreme means the best or most high," he explains, "so going into the project I wanted to represent this movement we call 'God Hop,' but from the West Coast." For Soul King, his music is a crusade for hip-hop, for, as he says, "The B-Boys and B-Girls who gave their lives to master the art. We have to fight to preserve the culture."

Over the past two decades, Del the Funky Homosapien has been establishing himself in the world of Hip-Hop. From his early 90’s Elektra releases to his cult classic Deltron 3030, Del the Funky Homosapien has proven his place in Rap History.
While awaiting the release of his upcoming album Deltron 2, Del the Funky Homosapien has once again teamed up with Parallel Thought to produce Attractive Sin, a follow up to their 2010 collaboration Parallel Uni-Verses, which Billboard Magazine described as having “classic sounds with rich layers of funk... that honor the genre-bending experimentation prevalent in 80’s and early 90’s hip-hop.”
Attractive Sin is the latest blend of Parallel Thought’s East Coast production and Del’s legendary West Coast style. Parallel Thought, a group that has been quietly releasing music for the past ten years with emcee notables such as Tame One, C-Rayz Walz, M.F. Doom, and most recently, the Alabama group G-Side, pays tribute to the likes of Ice Cube and The Bomb Squad’s Amerikka’s Most Wanted with the prolific Sir DZL’s Attractive Sin.
