10.12: EL DA SENSEI & THE RETURNERS - GT2: NU WORLD IS NOW AVAILABLE!!


Revered lyricist and New Jersey Hip-Hop veteran, El Da Sensei, has aligned himself once again with Polish production team, The Returners for the second chapter of their Global Takeover series, GT2: Nu World. After the unanimously positive response to the 2008 project Global Takeover: The Beginning, the trio consisting of founding member of the Artifacts El Da Sensei, Lil and DJ Chwial felt a continuation of the series was inevitable. Showcasing the talents of this musical combination from a lyrical and production standpoint, GT2: Nu World allows us to reminisce over the fundamentals of true Hip-Hop sounds, while displaying the growth of each component individually. GT2Treach (Naughty By Nature), Rakaa IriscieneSean Price, Akrobatik, Bekay, John Robinson, Reks & Tiye Phoenix. boasts a supporting cast made up of (Dilated Peoples),

"In today's climate of music, GT2 is a very important album that lives up to the title by demonstrating how globalized hip-hop has become as a culture. The Returners and I made this record for all those who wish to be taken away for an hour and just reconnect with the vibe of what good hip-hop is all about,” explains El Da Sensei. This fifteen-track opus is now available through Coalmine Records.

PHYSICAL vs. DIGITAL

To those on the fence deciding if you should order a physical copy and wait, versus the instant gratification of purchasing a digital copy, please keep in mind that the iTunes Edition is identical to the tracklisting on the physical CD. To boot, the download inlcudes digital liner notes that are very similar to the one's found on the physical CD. If you're true school collector, intent on owning a physical copy, then it's recommended that you order through UndergroundHipHop.com.
