New York, NY – (June 6, 2011) – Hailing from the eastern seaboard, Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew, the world's first rapping pirate troupe, featuring the rap skills of Captain Dan Dolan, Brad "Sea Dawg" Podray, Scott Free, DJ SyKo, ZealouS1, MC Treasure, and Admiralty are no strangers to success on the high seas or by land. Melding the sound of Top 40 Hip Hop with the classical pirates of 1630-1720 may seem a little out of left field at first, but Captain Dan & The Scurvy Crew manage to produce what is today's gold standard in pirate music.
Since launching the video for "Black Beard's Treasure", a single from the group's album -Authentic Pirate Hip-Hop, the clip has received over 310,000 views and has quickly become a favorite for pirate lovers worldwide.
Captain Dan and crew are thrilled to see the fruits of their labor "Rum & Juice" and "Would The Real Jack Sparrow Please Stand Up?" released today. The witty, swashbuckling parodies are available for FREE download here NOW: www.facebook.com/CaptainDanPirateRap .
Additionally, the group has posted a brand new animated video created by animator Matt Beaudoin for their original song "Broadside". "Arrrr, the video captures the spirit of our song bringing it to life. Ye won't be disappointed!" says Captain Dan. The single "Broadside" is set to be released on the groups forthcoming full length album titled- Divide The Plunder: The Best of Pirate Rap (due out on iTunes July 19). See the "Broadside" video here: www.youtube.com/CaptainDanPirateRap .
Captain Dan adds, "I be excited about the new upcoming album- Divide The Plunder. For years fans have loved me swashbuckling rap technique, but never before have they had all me best works on one fine release. Avast, Divide the Plunder will have something for old and new Captain Dan fans alike- we are releasing new unreleased tracks as well as remixes and live tracks! We are bringin' back the fan favorites like "Flintlock Glock", "Mutiny", "Sea Monsters", "Yo Ho Ho", "From the Seas to the Streets", and MORE!
At this time there are no other competing pirate rappers that can even come close to the Captain's genius. Using a unique slang, attitude, and lyrical style (as well as traditional Hip-Hop beats and melodies) Captain Dan & Crew stake a claim to bring something fresh and vibrant to Rap Music. The Scurvy Crew tackle all staples for rap culture with a slight twist- highlighting the similarities and appreciation rappers and pirates share for the love of bling on their chains, guns, booty, and oh yeah, some even walk with a limp!
