Sadat X Readies New Solo Album

Generation X*September 10th, 2008* -- The self-proclaimed Dot Father himself, Derek
"Sadat X" Murphy, has returned with his brand new, fifth solo collection,
the appropriately titled, *Generation X*. The Will Tell produced project, in
an exclusive deal with New York City's urban indie powerhouse, Affluent
Records, is being introduced by the set's hard hitting, lead offering, 'Never.'

Not having heard from X since '06's solid, but commercially panned, *Black
October*, Sadat is back in fine, rare form, showing that he hasn't missed a
beat since the days of old with his group-mates, Grand Puba and Lord Jamar,
of the legendary Brand Nubian collective.

Originally known as Derek X, the Brooklyn, New York, resident emcee made his
national debut in 1989 with the release of the group's premier single 'Brand
Nubian' b/w 'Feels So Good,' followed by their critically acclaimed, first
outing, *One For All*. The classic set spawned three additional hits 'All
For One,' 'Wake Up,' and 'Slow Down.' Inspired by the teachings of Islam, *One
For All* eventually sold over 350,000 units, nearly going gold, and won the
coveted 5 Mic rating in Hip-Hop magazine, The Source.

Sadat, who borrowed his moniker from former Egyptian president, Anwar
Sadat, eventually recorded and released his solo debut, *Wild Cowboys* [1996].
The stellar record contains superb production from some of the
industry's finest beat-makers; Buckwild, Diamond D, Minnesota, Da
Beatminerz, Pete Rock, Showbiz, and Dante Ross.

Three additional solo projects, and a pair of Brand Nubian efforts later,
and the "X-Man" is about to unleash, possibly, his most powerful opus
yet, *Generation X*.

With a career that spans nearly three decades, and possessing one of the
genre's most distinctive voices, veteran rapper Sadat X is definitely a much
needed, breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale Hip-Hop sound-scape.

*Generation X*, which features appearances from Twanie Ranks and Thirstin
Howl III, will be released digitally on September 30th 2008, followed by an
actual in-store date November 4th 2008.

Songwriting, Features & Hooks, DJ Show Commercials, Event Hosting, Radio/TV
Hosting, Acting & Commercials, and Public Speaking.
