Rare Breed 108 Proof
This record 'Rare Breed 108 Proof' was created by Kid Icarus (producer) & Jereme James (emcee), who came together with a concept and the motivation to make a cross genre original sound combining elements of hip hop and reggae I.e. RaggaHop. We reached out to some exceptional vocalists from Jamaica (Stevie Culture & Highah Seekah), and lots of local talent with regard to live instrumentation. For added flavor we had a remix done on the 'Murdera' track by the legendary dub master The Scientist. We worked with Andy McEewen at the Crucible Recording Studio for final mixing and mastering, and let the whole thing come together naturally. It's basically our response to popular music, so we tried to maintain a conscious vibe with raw, energetic lyrics over hard, driving rhythms. The whole project was wrapped up with a custom art cover by our bruthacuz Alrik Yuill, (So Cal fine artists and sculptor), who masterfully captured the entire dynamic. Simply put, this album was made by the family for the family. We hope it's well received and appreciate any and all feedback. Enjoy!
