Celph Titled & Buckwild Transport You To Nineteen Ninety Now

 

 

 

 

 

Its finally here and a hip-hop renaissance is about to begin showing that the lessons from the past can be combined with the innovations of the present, as Celph Titled and Buckwild have joined forces to create a neo-classic with Nineteen Ninety Now; bringing the art form full-circle through this groundbreaking collaboration. By having uninhibited access to legendary producer Buckwild’s original mid-90’s production, Celph Titled was able to select and record to over 16 unreleased bangers; bringing his charismatic flow and lyrical prowess to each one.

 

        

 

Nineteen Ninety Now is more than a collaboration of great minds with impeccable taste; it’s also the long awaited debut album from Celph Titled, who already has gained a huge underground following as a core member of Jedi Mind Tricks’ Army of the Pharaohs crew, his own trademark Demigodz releases and his involvement in Mike Shinoda’s Fort Minor project. While Celph is a producer in his own right, the chance to work with Buckwild and actually have the opportunity to capture the lost sound of the 90’s by utilizing vintage tracks from Buckwild’s vault that have never been heard before was a no-brainer—and here’s why. Multi-platinum producer Buckwild from the legendary Diggin’ In The Crates crew (D.I.T.C.) has produced countless classics over the last two decades for artists ranging from Artifacts, 50 Cent, Big L, Brand Nubian, CNN, Faith Evans, Fat Joe, Jadakiss, Diddy, The Game, Redman, Shyne, Swizz Beatz, Big Pun and Jay-Z. To boot, he’s also the producer behind indelible classics from Notorious B.I.G (“I Got A Story To Tell”), Black Rob (“Whoa”), O.C. (“Times Up”) and Organized Konfusion (“Stress”).

 

Revisiting the classic SP-1200 and Akai-S950 sound that reigned supreme in Hip-Hop’s “Golden Era,” the beats on Nineteen Ninety Now were originally produced by Buckwild between the years of 1994-1995–but never recorded to. Buckwild fondly recalls what it was like to dig back into those crates “although I’ve stayed ahead of the times as a producer, it was a lot of fun to load up these old disks. Joints I forgot I even had, stuff I haven’t heard in 15-years. It was definitely a welcomed experiment that turned out amazing. Further, he comments on the concept he and Celph embarked on and its possibilities in the future “essentially this is a concept album that’s a first of its kind. I wanted to be able to resurrect a 90’s sound that once was and combine it with 2010 rhymes. I consider this album to be monumental because it could literally not only change the game, but change the way people feel. Dudes complain about the game but they ain’t doing anything. Nobody has done this concept before us. I wouldn’t be surprised if this creates a demand for other MC’s and producers who were around in the 90’s to get together and dig through shoeboxes of floppy disks to feed the fans more of the lost sound they still crave for and I’m all for it.”

 

While Celph has enjoyed success with his Demigodz crew and all of his endeavors, it may surprise some that Nineteen Ninety Now is his true debut and the importance of this project was not lost on him, as he laments on how meticulous the recording process was for this project “We took three-years to construct this album. This is the project I’ve always wanted to do. To have my debut solo-album produced entirely by a legend like Buckwild can’t be topped in my mind. My first album is always going to be looked at as a masterpiece to all my fans.”

 

Celph also comments on why harkening back into this very specific time period of Hip-Hop is moving forward and not backward “It’s actually refreshing to hear authentic beats produced in the 90’s finally unveiled. It reminds you of all the dope production methods and sounds that are no longer used today. Nineteen Ninety Now takes you right back to that feeling–even if it’s just for one album.”

 

Celph Titled and Buckwild will release Nineteen Ninety Now on 10-26-2010 on No Sleep Recordings.

Cam’ron & Vado set date for Gunz N’ Butta album

E1 Music is proud to announce the upcoming release Gunz N’ Butta, the highly anticipated new duet album from hip hop legend Cam’ron and his new protégé  Vado.  The album will be released on August 31st and includes 16 tracks featuring and written by both Cam’ron and Vado.  The first single, “Speaking in Tungs” is already a top 10 song New York’s Hot 97

Rhyming for over a decade, Vado grew up listening to such local legends as Ma$e, Big L, Doug E. Fresh, Rob Base and Cam’ron, as well as outer borough artists like Jay-Z, Nas and DMX. After spending several years building his buzz in and around the Big Apple, Vado celebrated his 24th birthday by auditioning in front of Cam’ron, one of his hip-hop idols.

“The vibe between me and Cam was crazy,” remembers Vado. “I’m from his ‘hood on 142nd and Lenox, so once we started kickin’ it like Goodfellas and he started recording with me, it was history in the making.”

Cam’ron and Vado look to continue flooding the streets with new music. After the release of their first official album as a duo, Gunz N’ Butta, on August 31st, 2010, Vado will release his first solo mixtape, Slime Flu, in the fall.  Vado says of Gunz N’ Butta, “It’s our first album and I promise it’s so much of a classic. It’s like all the Boss of all Bosses tapes put together.  We hit y’all from all angles—we hit y’all from the streets, for the ladies, for the club… It’s five stars, man.”
