Mic Theory: ft. Hex One

"Words Worth A Thousand Pictures" is the brand new album of Epidemic MC Hex One.

"Hex One offers a glimpse into his life as an MC and the world he lives in as seen through the scope of his lens. Backed by hard headnodic beats, deep, soulful samples with east coast and jazz influences, and booming drums and bass lines, Hex masterfully shatters contemporary society's notion of Hip-hop being a lowbrow genre of music."

His philosophy remains: if a picture is worth a thousand words, so too can a poets words be worth a thousand pictures.

The LP comes on clear vinyl housed in full color picture sleeve.

A: Intro
A: Yes, Y'all
A: Where I'll Go
A: 4 My Story
A: Sallyble Mux-ip
A: Back To The Boom

Radio Krimi: ft. Doc TMK

The man Doc TMK released a long list of 7" vinyl and did an interview with Stitch By Stitch blogspot ... and he is back once again to present his first full-length LP ... "Jus Do It!"

Life is like a N!ke commercial ... and this LP is 11 tracks strong. With support by his partner in crime DJ Suspect but also featuring veterans like FinstaBundy, Emskee or Ruste Juxx the album underlines the talent Doc TMK has proven for quite some time now. Very excited I am also to see my man G Roc Gayle on the track "Chill". 

The album is supposed to be released early November in a limited quantity of 300 copies, however pre-orders are live now. For the first 100 people to support the album, Radio Krimi is giving away a free bonus 7" of one of Doc's latest releases ... great move!
