MP3: Cold Heat f/ Blacastan & Craig G - "Raising the Bar"

PRESS RELEASE – July 2011 – Queens based hip-hop duo Jak D (MC) and Jay W (producer), better known as Cold Heat get set to drop their third LP, Raising The Bar, on July 19th through Soulspazm Digital. Raising The Bar continues in the tradition of both of their previous ‘bar' themed releases, Bar Hoppin and LIfe Behind Bars, respectively.  With their latest effort, the duo declare their emancipation, showcasing a discernible maturation as artist and producer.  The duplicity of the title suggests that they have raised their own quality standards, but have also upped the ante in the game as whole  "…the price of liquor just went up" says Jak D.

When asked about their approach to recording Raising The Bar, Jak W states:  _"This album means striving to do what I love at the highest level it can be done.  It means pushing myself to step outside of my comfort zone so that I can grow as an artist and more importantly as a person."_  Jay W adds: "There's no doubt that we raised the bar on this album – this is our best effort to date."

There is no question that the Queens-duo break new ground with their latest effort.  Cold Heat deliver their benchmark album that is as conceptually diverse and honest as it is braggadocio and animated.  On July 19th, the there is a new gold standard - the bar has officially been raised.

In promotion for the album's release, we're pleased to present the LP's title track "Raising The Bar", which features Blacastan and the legendary Craig G.  This track represents lyrical warfare at its finest as hour as the three emcee's blitzkrieg over Jay W's apocalyptic production.
