In 1997, armed with experience and insight, Hieroglyphics formed their own independent company, Hiero Imperium …

IDE – Force Fed
Friday, March 10th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on IDE – Force Fed

Image: 1609111 In celebration of the 10th anniversary of “Force Fed” we have teamed
up with Fat Beats to release this limited edition colored vinyl.
“The debut album from Ide the Shanty One, “Force Fed” is a verbal
maelstrom whipping through the placid seas of 21st century
underground hip-hop with thunderous beats and lightning-strike lyrics.
Ide displays his furious command of the mic over 23 dark and storming
beats, his imaginative and visceral word-warping and unrelenting ?ow
striking listeners with gut-punch directness. Following Jak Progresso’s
“Random Violence” as the 2nd full-length release from Creative Juices
Music, “Force Fed” heralds the charge of this new artist onto the NY
underground scene: Ide the Shanty One. Already earning respect for
expert production and engineering for various underground artists, now
Ide brings forth this manifesto of disgust and impatience with a twisted
culture and reminds listeners why hip-hop is NOT dead. Throughout his
frst lp, he avoids lecturing about society directly but instead proclaims
this gritty mission statement championing subversive artistry and
psychic exploration. This Creative Juices Music release gathers a total
of 10 producers, including Domingo, Deep and Ben Boogz (2 Hungry
Bro’s/Creative Juices), DJ Connect (Elite Fleet), and others, as well as
Ide himself, yet projects a unifed sonic stampede of steel-toed hip-hop.
Joining The Shanty One on the mic are U.G. (Cella Dwellas), Savage
Messiah (formerly of Scienz of Life), Critical, Madness, Alucard, Jak
Progresso, and L.I.F.E.Long (Stronghold), all contributing cinematic
similes in an unrelenting ?ood. Ide’s “Force Fed” is compelling in
its ferocity, and ftting that he is initiating his chapter in music in the
company of these well-known fgures on the underground scene.”Force
Fed” is for hungry listeners, who’ve had enough of the formula, and
don’t mind a little pain if their rap would only get its edge back. This
brazen debut album from Ide the Shanty One is a sure classic for 2007
and another strong product from the Creative Juices Music label.

• 10th anniversary release – Colored vinyl limited edition 300
• IDE’s frst album from 2006 with all scratches from DJ Mista

Ron Jon Bovi (Casual & Phat Kat) – Neaux Mursi
Thursday, February 4th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Ron Jon Bovi (Casual & Phat Kat) – Neaux Mursi

Image: 1602097 Huh? How? Whoa. I know this is what you’re thinking. This epic
collaboration between two of hip-hops most respected legends from
different sides of the country came about somewhat via chance,
intention and a mutual connection. Both are widely acclaimed and
known as your favorite rappers favorite rapper and are known for
their unforgiving hard edge and complex lyrics.
One afternoon, Detroit Hip-Hop Legend Phat Kat, was on the
phone with long time friend and collaborator, Unjust, (Hieroglyphics
Imperium producer) who shared that he had been working on some
tracks with iconic Hieroglyphics Crew and West Coast pioneer
Casual. Kat lamented “man…how ill would it be if we did a project
together?” This left the rest to Unjust and the stars began to align.
Unjust handpicked some choice beats of his, sent them to Kat and
Casual and within a few short weeks, this insanely powerful body of
work was complete, and it sounds exactly how you think it would—
relentless, urgent, mean, honest and gritty.
Ron Jon Bovi – Neaux Mursi is Casual and Phat Kat’s debut fulllength
group album and it’s produced in its entirety by the Oakland
based, Hieroglyphics Imperium producer Unjust, who you already
know from his work with First Light (Opio and Pep Love), and the
recent Hiero group effort, The Kitchen, and turns in by far his most
ambitious production work to date for Neaux Mursi.

Pharcyde – Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde
Thursday, January 7th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Pharcyde – Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde

Image: 1601508 “Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde” is the debut album from The Pharcyde. Released in late 1992, the album was hailed
by critics and rap fans alike. Produced entirely by J-Swift with easily some of the tightest and most inventive beats
of the era, “Bizarre Ride” features only one guest appearance, provided by little known Los Angeles rapper
Buckwheat (who would become known as “Bucwheed” from The Wascals). Released during the dominant Gangsta
Rap era of the West Coast, the music was described as “refreshing” due to its playful, light-hearted humor and lush,
jazzy production. Along with albums like “To Whom it May Concern…” by Freestyle Fellowship, and “I Wish My
Brother George Was Here” by Del tha Funkee Homosapien, “Bizarre Ride” helped establish a new alternative scene
on the West Coast followed by artists such as Hieroglyphics, The Coup and Jurassic 5.
The album featured four singles, all of which were accompanied by music videos. The group’s debut single, “Ya
Mama”, originally released in 1991, was the song that landed the group their record deal, but it failed to reach any
Billboard singles chart. Their first major exposure came with the release of the album’s second single, “Passing Me
By”. The song became the group’s biggest crossover hit and is now considered a classic Hip Hop single. The
album’s third single, “4 Better or 4 Worse”, was released in mid-1993 and featured the stoner song “Pack the Pipe”
and the throwback track “Return of the B-Boy” as its B-Side. The final single, the SlimKid solo track “Otha Fish”,
was released in late 1993.
The album was certified gold in 1996, and it’s stature has only grown since with the release constantly appearing
on Best Of lists such as the 100 Best Rap albums by The Source, Top 100 Favorite Records of The 90s by Pitchfork
and Rolling Stone’s Top 25 Hip Hop Albums as listed by Chris Rock.

Pharcyde”, are presented here as a deluxe 45 box set.

singles issued from Bizarre Ride in full color jackets.
Each of the seven singles included in the set are in a

Originally released in November 1992, Bizarre Ride II The
Pharcyde emerged at a time when gangsta rap dominated
what people were hearing, seeing and buying, especially
on the West Coast. The Pharcyde’s refreshing sound –
lively, humorous and inventive lyrics over lush, jazzy
productions –changed hip hop’s trajectory and influenced
a generation of artists. “Bizarre Ride” helped establish a
new alternative scene on the West Coast, paving the way
for artists such as Hieroglyphics, The Coup, Jurassic 5
and many more.
Over the years, Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde’s status has
grown to that of a five-star classic, beloved by critics and
fans alike. Pitchfork named the release one of their “Top
