Rap Vet Releases Solo Debut 15 Years in the Making

                                    IF YOU'RE TIRED OF ONE DIMENSIONAL RAPPERS,
                                 WELCOME TO THE "NEW GOLDEN ERA" OF DIMENSIONS

After forming a group with a pre-dead prez in Tallahassee and
returning to his hometown Washington DC to form a powerhouse
underground collective known as the Infinite Loop (the first unsigned
DC hip-hop group to secure national media coverage, in the now-defunct
Blaze Magazine), Hip-hop artist Dimensions (real name: Anthony Fields)
has finally released his solo debut, a 21 track opus entitled
"Slanguage: A Brain Cell.e.bration". Exemplifying the proverb "the
last shall be first", Dimensions is set to release his solo album
after other members of the Infinite Loop have gone on to some
notoriety, including Black Indian (the first male hip-hop soloist to
ink a major label deal, years before Wale, with MCA) and Omar Retnu
(who produced R&B star Raheem Devaughn's early independent releases
and is the touring bassist/bandleader in The L's, a band that backs
Foreign Exchange (fronted by Phonte of Little Brother) on tour).

Following the dissolution of Infinite Loop, Dimensions formed a
hip-hop trio dubbed The Package with fellow former Loop members Noyeek
the Grizzly Bear and DJ/producer Theory. The group has become an
Internet sensation, garnering over 115,000 views on their Myspace page and generating almost 2,000 downloads
for their digital-only release, "Double R: Remixes and Rarities" in
two months. Their debut single, "Making Waves", was promoted via a
video (directed by Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97) that has generated over
20,000 views online. "Making Waves" was also remixed by
internationally respected producer Kev Brown (who has worked with such
hip-hop stars as Busta Rhymes, De La Soul, and formerly belonged to DJ
Jazzy Jeff's production team, A Touch of Jazz).

Dimensions' buzz single, "Rep Yo Hood" explains part of the reason for
the long wait for his solo debut, namely Dimensions' status as a
working single father of four sons (all of whom attend private school
on academic scholarship thanks to his stern discipline). "Rep Yo Hood"
(sometimes subtitled Fatherhood) is a powerful ode to parental
responsibility to his fellow black men and a direct challenge to
brothers who want to engage in street activities ("repping" their
neighborhood) instead of taking care of their responsibilities at
home. This must-hear song deserves to be heard throughout the black
community and the world at large.

"Rep Yo Hood" serves as the lead-off single from Dimensions' debut
album and is attached to this message.

Dimensions' album can be downloaded in its entirety (including
original painted cover art) at
