New Souls of Mischief LP Drops Today

After almost a decade-long hiatus, Left Coast veteran crew Souls of Mischief returns today with Montezuma’s Revenge.

A-Plus, Tajai, Opio and Phesto recorded the album in the lab with none other than producer Prince Paul and long-time collaborator Domino. Apparently, they rented a house to isolate in order to focus on making the album.

[Paul] had concepts, and its good to have an outside perspective – it was a great process.


I checked it out briefly last night, and it sounds like their strategy paid off as this might be a late addition to my end-of-the-year list of best albums.

Head over to Amazon to pick up your copy, and be a part of the Souls resurrection. What, you thought I wasn’t gon’ make you work for good music? Ha!

Check out a video of illustrator Steven Lopez (he drew this picture of Erykah Badu) working on the sweet cover for Montezuma’s Revenge down below. I also provided a sneak peak with the lead single “Tour Stories” and a recent leak “Proper Aim.” Don’t say I never gave you nothin’!

Shouts to Hurricane for the MP3’s and Michelle for the video. Also, look for a HTT and HHIR collab coming to an e-hood near you soon. Enjoy!

11 Ultimate Hip-Hop Trios

New Wu

With the dream-team of Ghostface, Raekwon & Method Man forming like Voltron possibly even before ’09 kicks the bucket, heads everywhere should be drooling over the possibility of an album from the Wu-based trio.
