2012 was a hallmark year for Man Bites Dog Records, and now, the burgeoning hip-hop label is excited to announce a string of high profile release plans for the first half of 2013. Starting in late January the label is planning releases from a mix of hip-hop vets and promising upstarts alike, with albums and mixtapes slated from Roc Marciano, Illogic & Blockhead, Harry Fraud & Eddie B, Vast Aire, Wais P, Curly Castro, Hayze, and more.

On January 23rd, Man Bites Dog will celebrate their first release of the year with Wais P's PV$$Y RICH mixtape, a free offering that includes features from Action Bronson, Devin The Dude, and more that will serve as a prelude to Wais' official Man Bites Dog debut, Pimpin Saved My Life, out this March. Next, on January 29th, will be Vast Aire's A Space Iliad EP, a collection of B-sides and remixes held over from his OX 2010: A Space Odyssey, that includes features from Sadat X, Guilty Simpson, C-Rayz Walz, and more.

Moving into February, Man Bites Dog is excited to introduce fans to one of their newest signees, Philadelphia rapper Curly Castro, who will release the free album Fidel, and the label will close the month with another free release from one of the label's freshest faces, Hayze, who will release his Smoker's Section mixtape. March will see the release of Paper, Piff & Polo, a collaborative album from super producer Harry Fraud and up-and-coming rapper Eddie B, while April will cap off the spring schedule with two of the label's biggest releases of the year. Up first will be Illogic & Blockhead's Capture The Sun, followed by Roc Marciano's first ever producer album, Marci Beaucoup.

"Looking back at last year, I feel musically we progressed and personally we saw through projects that took years to complete," says R.M.L. "We worked more feverishly than ever this year, and with the releases we have coming, it's really something special."

Beyond the label's exciting release schedule, 2013 proves to be a breakout year for R.M.L. and Man Bites Dog Records in a number of other ways, spearheaded by the label's opening of a brand new office space, complete with an in-house studio, where the label will now record, mix, and master 100% of the albums to be released this year and beyond, a process that will not only allow the label to optimize and strengthen its creative process but also allow for streamlined business operations, an advantage in an ever-changing music industry landscape. "We opened a new office this year, and had the shit Feng Shui'ed by a master," boasts R.M.L. "We got all our shit in positive directions and no bad arrows. Everyone needs to hit up their local witch doctors, card readers, shaman's and catch up. Cats are back-masking while we're clearing the chakra with singing bowls."
