West Orange, New Jersey emcee GDP has announced his new full-length album Useless Eaters will be dropping on March 29th via Run For Cover Records (Title Fight, Transit, Man Overboard). With the announcement is a double premiere from the album including a video for the song Neural Circuitry (directed by Josh Sandler with beat produced by live electronic act Frozen Gentlemen) on GDP’s revamped website. Print music and art magazine Alarm Press has also premiered the song Quintuplets today on their online site.
Combining futuristic grime with homage to hip hop’s past, Useless Eaters” is GDP’s most focused effort as well as his darkest. Regarded as one of the one of the hardest working artists in hip-hop. The album was mixed and mastered by GDP and his frequent collaborator Pistol in the midst of a 52 date national tour that he booked himself. Aside from Frozen Gentlemen, Beats were handled by Melbourne Australia’s Aoi and Perth, Australia’s DOS4GW whom GDP met while supporting The RZA (Wu-Tang Clan) on Australian dates. Appearing on the album are legendary emcees Tame One (The Artifacts) and Young Zee (The Outsidaz).
After years of relentless touring and consistent releases, GDP has gained respect from many of the same hip hop legends that inspired him growing up as well as forward thinking hardcore and punk artists. He has shared the stage with artists ranging from Wu Tang Clan, Dead Prez, Rah Digga, and Masta Ace to Trap Them, Skeletonwitch, Suburban Scum, Product Of Waste, and Dead to Me. GDP is set to play a string of East and West Coast release shows followed by some European dates.
