Meyhem Lauren & DJ Muggs Ft. Roc Marciano – Street Religion (Video/Stream)
First leak off Meyhem Lauren & DJ Muggs’s upcoming “Gems From The Equinox” album. I’m excited for the project but this sample has been done to death.
Queens finest Meyhem Lauren and LA’s own has just announced his new album Gems From The Equinox produced by DJ Muggs will be released everywhere on October 27th via Soul Assassins Records / Kobalt Music Recordings. Pre-order for the album is available here with a free instant grat of new single “Street Religion” feat. Roc Marciano. Special physical + digital editions with bonus tracks are available at soulassassins.com. The album news also comes with the release of the video for “Street Religion” feat. Roc Marciano, a gritty visual depicting the whole crew politicking in the streets between splices of old footage and an illuminated cityscape.
Meyhem Lauren’s Gems From The Equinox is the crown jewel of modern NY rap. A future classic soundtracked by legendary producer DJ Muggs who has redefined dusty hip-hop production into a polished and dark, psychedelic world. The equinox is the one day of the year where day and night are the exact same length and this is the perspective of this album; the equal balance of darkness and the light. The project chronicles the urban decay and wild experiences only to be found in the New York underworld from the perspective of an intelligent hoodlum, Londell Manuver, AKA Meyhem Lauren. Sonic influences range from elements of Cypress Hill’s Black Sunday, Mobb Deep’s Hell On The Earth to Capone-N-Noreaga’s The War Report.
