Welcome to "Death By Thr33s Vol 4"... This is the fourth volume in a series of several, three track "ThreE.P." style releases from the ENTIRE extended Black Mask family of artists. Each artist or group of artists were given three instrumentals produced by Maulskull of Black Mask and given six weeks to write, record and send them back with verses. A total of 17 artists were involved from three different states and regions. This series represents what is achievable in a very short amount of time with a very large amount of work and collaboration between artists. OVER 40 TRACKS will be available for free download over the next few months and Black Mask will be releasing a different three track E.P. from a different artist EVERY WEDNESDAY until all tracks have been released. You can definitely expect a physical "Best Of DB3" cd to be out in 2012. "Death By Thr33s" represents reaching out to other artists with an open hand, so its only right that the album art would do the same. Thats why local Denver artist, Chelsey Christy, was commissioned to paint a series of "Death By Thr33s" canvas paintings revolving around the idea of reaching out, along with her personal interpretations of each artist's tracks. Very interesting and every album cover will be different! So please enjoy your free download of each volume and PLEASE SUPPORT THESE ARTISTS!! THANK YOU AND BLESSINGS! -BLACK MASK-
Meet BullHead*ded: the next big thing to hit the hip-hop community. After doing somewhere around 100 shows together in 2009 it was only natural for two of Colorado’s premier hip hop groups to team up. Made Up Minds members Nato and ZET joined forces with Too Tone Taurus members Che Bong and J.P.S. to form the super group BullHead*ded. These four sharp-minded, strong-willed and BullHead*ded individuals will not let anything stand in their way. Not since the glory days of hip-hop has there been a power-house group of M.C.s all with there own unique style and flavor holding there own. Backed by the masterful production of Nato, BullHead*ded’s music is upbeat, stimulating and intellectual. It is the type of music that moves your body as well as your mind. Armed with epic music, an unforgettable live performance and a BullHead*ded mind set this team is unstoppable. BullHead*ded’s debut album “Just The Tip” will be dropping early 2012. No matter what the Chinese calendar says, 2012 is the year of the BULL. They are hitting the road and touring the beautiful countryside. Catch them in your town at you favorite venue. BullHead*ded has shared the stage with such greats as: Sage Francis, Pharoahe Monch, Dilated Peoples, People Under The Stairs, Doomtree, Souls Of Mischief, Del, Solillaquists Of Sound, 2MEX, EL-P, Mr. Dibbs, Pato Banton, Free Moral Agents, Astronautalis, Josh Martinez, Grayskul, Sole, The Chicharones, Qwel, J-Live, Sleep, Illogic, Planet Asia, Tha Alkaholiks, Nappy Roots, Glue, Sweatshop Union and many more.
