Image: 1580669 Side A "Czardi Gras (It's Raw Again)" Featuring Action Bronson / Side B "Wake Up Show Promo" & "Czardi Gras (It's Raw Again) nstrumental" / Limited Pressing 7” vinyl record with full color sleeve featuring all new original artwork by Lamour Supreme of Mishka, NYC. The record features two all new exclusive cuts that are only available on this format. “CZARDI GRAS (IT’s RAW AGAIN)” finds 7L taking his production back to the park jams with this remix of an album favorite (Action Bronson supplies a guest verse). The flip side finds the Czar trio spitting lyrical homage to the long standing Wake Up Show and their legendary hosts, Sway, King Tech, and DJ Revolution.
When soon-to-be-renowned Boston hip-hop duo 7L & Esoteric collaborated with the Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck on the title track to 7LES’s debut EP Speaking Real Words in 1999, the timing was perfect. The upstart duo was building a serious buzz on the East Coast and beyond,
while Deck was still winning praise for his gold-selling solo disc Uncontrolled Substance. As flashy pop-oriented rap was pumped on
commercial radio stations, their natural chemistry and simpatico skills shone as a beacon to real hip-hop fans, a base of listeners who were soon
asking about their next musical summit.
14 years later, the hunger for sharp lyrics and head-snapping beats hasn't dissipated. In the face of the ever-worsening status quo of watered-down and vapid radio rap songs, the call for something real has only gotten stronger, and once again the time is right for a call to action – for someone or something to come in and send wack rappers running for the hills in fear. Enter CZARFACE, the upcoming, uncompromising full-length album from Inspectah Deck and 7L & Esoteric.
Not surprising, respect for real hip-hop runs deep, and CZARFACE brings an army with it — consider the star-studded guest list which includes
Roc Marciano, Action Bronson, Vinnie Paz (Jedi Mind Tricks,) Oh No (Gangrene,) Mr. MFN eXquire and Deck's fellow Wu-Tang
Clansmen Ghostface Killah and Cappadonna.
Aside from one track blessed by the almighty DJ Premier, production on CZARFACE belongs exclusively to DJ 7L, who provides the musical
backbone which holds the album together. His ability to craft a hip-hop sound that's current and exciting with a classic feel left Deck impressed:
“This is one of the first albums I've heard in a while that gives you so many different feels. You hear the ‘80s hip-hop style, ‘80s R&B and rock
combined with what's going on now. That’s creating something new, in my opinion.” Available from 10.05.2013
