SoulonFire-WordisBond

Los Angeles Cali, Greensboro NC & Camden NJ….theyve all been or are home to hip hop veteran Emcee ethemadassassin who has just released his 3rd solo album “Soul on Fire” today

Starting out in the rap battle scene during what’s often referred to as the Golden Era of hip hop in the 90’s, E’s music has always reflected his life in an open an honest way. Growing up in tough times, he got educated, travelled and developed both personally and musically.

The current album is a snapshot autobiography reflecting back on the early days and updating on the here& now. Tracks such as “80’s & 90’s” and “Can’t Get Enough” have that classic soul and era vibe, whereas he lets loose with his renowned verbal assaults over the rockier joints like “Elements”, “Sparta” and “Fight Music”. The skills are in full effect on “Tiger Blade” and many props have been afforded to the deep sentiment portrayed in “Letter To Mommy”

He describes the album as just “the latest chapter in my book of life“, but this album is full of true street stories – he’s lived and seen it, there’s no fantasy rap goin on here

He took time out recently to speak with Chase March from The Word is Bond’s Rap Radio Hour. Hear the entire audio interview online HERE

You can check out all the tracks and buy the album on iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/soul-on-fire/id685226091

As a taster, check out the videos for What It’s Supposed to Be produced by Kyo Itachi, Can’t Get Enough and the single 80’s & 90’s produced by Sci Fi Stu

You can also follow E on twitter @ethemadassassin and the guys at the magazine @ChaseMarch & @TheWordisBond Thanks also to Teckzilla for his help on that feature.

Any further media & press inquiries about ethemadassassin can be addressed to UrbanElite PR HERE

It’s a brilliant album in the best traditions of classic rap & hip hop. Check it out & support
