Set for immediate release.

Interview with A.R.A.B. that gives insight to the making of his new album The Trojan Horse.  
First Dirt Republic artist and co-founder, A.R.A.B., is a poet, a leader, and a hustler.  His multifaceted talent combined with his drive and passion for music has helped him rise above his competition time and time again.  A.R.A.B.'s album The Trojan Horse has been getting responses on many levels ranging from impressive to uncertain. All responses, good or bad, are appreciated and heard. 
The well-respected and versatile magazine, Sacramento News and Review (SNR), which informs music lovers about what's hot and new, is always helping artists expose themselves to their audience.  The SNR recently interviewed A.R.A.B. about his new album, The Trojan Horse, and his thought process behind some of his musical decisions.
For a glimpse into the mind of an artist that has been through countless trials and tribulations, overcome many obstacles, and has still seem to come out on top, pick up the SNR at any newsstand or music store in the area or go to . (Sacramento News and Entertainment Weekly - Volume 22, Issue 13)
