Hiero Newcomer Musab Helms New Hierocast
(Brooklyn, NY, 14 November 2007) Rap veteran Musab, recently signed to famed label Hiero Imperium for this year's release Slick's Box, has recorded a half hour long episode for the label's Hierocast. The podcast includes songs from Musab's 2002 classic, Respect The Life, in addition to newer tracks. Musab introduces each with the same laid-back swagger his fans have come to recognize. In his own words, "It's not what you say, it's how you say it - nobody said it like me before."
Opening with three tracks from Respect The Life and followed by three more from Slick's Box, the Hierocast not only pulls from some of Musab's musical highlights, but it gives newcomers to his alter ego "Minnesota Slicks" a sampling of his style. These include the two singles from Slick's Box, "Baaang" and "Hat & Shoes," and the album track "Please Do Not Assume." Slick's Box, released in September, found critical acclaim in the hip-hop underground, and signaled a comeback for the Minneapolis native.
The Hierocast is one of the first podcasts started by an indie hip-hop label. The first episode, which launched in 2005, featured Souls of Mischief member A-Plus. Since then, various members of the collective have hosted their own episodes, including Domino, Del the Funky Homosapien, and newcomers O.C. and Knobody and more. Over the past two years, tens of thousands of hip-hop fans have downloaded the Hierocast to get a more intimate look at their favorite artists' background, in-depth commentary, and the secrets behind their recording process. Iconocastic.com produces each episode, which is the media division of entertainment and lifestyle marketing firm Audible Treats. Musab's Hierocast marks the10th episode.
Musab, who signed to Hiero Imperium this summer, co-founded Rhymesayers Entertainment as Beyond. His new album Slick's Box is a look into his personal life, detailing his life as a father, a Muslim, and a pimp.
