Over the past 12+ years, the name Jedi Mind Tricks has become synonymous with raw, gritty underground hip hop. With their 6th studio release, “A History of Violence,” Vinnie Paz, beat maestro, Stoupe, and long estranged partner-in-rhyme Jus Allah reunite, rekindling the spirit of their last collaborative full length album, 1998’s renowned classic “Violent By Design.” A mature masterpiece, Jedi’s signature style continues to evolve as the group moves self-assuredly into their second decade as undisputed leaders within the independent hip hop landscape; their unique sound, and the movement that it has spawned, is responsible for no less than the genesis of an entire sub-genre of music.

And now Jedi Mind Tricks return with a renewed vigor. With the first single, “Monolith”, Stoupe laces sultry vocals upon a head-nodding drum line, setting the backdrop for Vinnie’s politically and socially incendiary lyrical delivery. Political sentiment also served to inspire the album title and accompany the cover imagery.

For the first time in years, the duo’s inimitable sound is rounded out by the fiery vocals of erstwhile member Jus Allah. Re-united and reconstituted, this is the Jedi Mind Tricks that both captivated a
generation and paved the way for a flourishing sub-culture of hardcore independent hip hop.
