FrankRadio and iHipHop Distribution are proud to announce the highly anticipated follow-up to 2009’s “Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture: Enter The Dubstep Vol. 1.” Out on December 21st, the freshest sounds in underground electronic music have once again encountered the classic hip-hop stylings of the foundational group of legends: Brand Nubian.
After the wild success of Vol. 1, it only felt right for its producers and A&R’s to embark on a new journey down the same road. Meanwhile, Lord Jamar had found himself becoming more and more interested in heavy bass music and had seen this as a new avenue for the groups lyrical expression. Brand Nubian holds a unique position in hip-hop history. Universally respected as pioneers of a new way of thinking during the “golden-era” of the early 90’s, Brand Nubian’s political, social and cultural messages were delivered with a heavy dose of hardcore. With this 2nd installment in the ground-breaking series, “Enter The Dubstep” continues to trailblaze the collaboration between Dubstep and Hip-Hop, bringing hard bass and gritty lyrics together as none have done before. As Dubstep continues to push itself into mainstream ears, this album continues to push the boundaries of both genres, and in doing so, eliminates the borders all together.
The album features live new vocals from all three MCs (Grand Puba, Sadat X and Lord Jamar), and brand new production by Hellfire Machina, Dem Soul, hardcore legend Lenny Dee, and the COA badmen Soroka and Nebulla who collaborated on an completely original song- “Dopestep” featuring Lord Jamar and Petey Green. It also features, for the first time, a tune by Code of Arms, entitled “Revolution”, which was a collective effort by several COA artists and musicians.
