A Long Time Coming Update


What up?  This is 5th here… Just letting it be known that the 1st single off my album “A Long Time Coming” will be dropping on Tuesday, August 5th.  It is called “One Of These Days” and it is produced by The Empire’s own Speak No Evil, so you know a banger is in store.  Shortly after, another track off of the album, “Bring It Back,” will be completed.  That one is produced by, and featuring Speak No Evil.  And again, “A Long Time Coming” will be released on September 10th, 2008.  So y’all keep your ears open…

Peace.

NCC Records


Assuming that you know where you are, at the blog of underground Hip Hop group The Empire, it’s about time to reveal what Indie Label Empire resides on. NCC Records, (North Carolina Commission) Records, was founded on July 28, 2006 by James Genwright II. Like most entrepreneurs, James has gone to great lengths to preserve NCC Records integrity and relevance. Currently the only group on the label is The Empire. James, his brother Jason, and their childhood friend Emory founded The Empire several years ago. With big corporations dominating the music and entertainment industry, NCC Records seems to be lost in the shuffle with the rest of the Indies. That fact however does not make them any less relevant. Sometimes it’s more important to hear from those who have not been “groomed” for the position so to speak.

“The Deens Office”


Empire member SpeaK has been working on a solo album titled “The Deens Office” for over 3 years now, and it appears that it is finally about to surface. SpeaK began work on what was to be his debut album while he was in the Air Force and stationed at Pope AFB, NC. It was around that time that he met 5th Letter, and found his place among The Empire making the rest is history. “The Deens Office” features production from Vintage, Mic Will, Prince Imperial and SpeaK himself. There will also be mcee appearances by QB, ReD RuM, Jay Spitta, all members of The Empire and possibly Vintage. Whatever the case, curiosity is peaking.
