On the heels a critically-acclaimed debut, SoulStice resurfaces with D.C.-artist Haysoos as Wade Waters to fuse classic Chi-town and east coast hip hop with the duo's mixtape debut: Return of the Kings. Hip hop is back!!
North By Northwest fused the signature Chicago funk and groove based sound with the thump of classic East Coast boom-bap. A mere six-months after his debut, SoulStice re-emerges to carry that fusion to the next level. His latest endeavor, Wade Waters: Return of the Kings is a mixtape collaboration with fellow Maryland resident Haysoos (SoulStice hails from Chicago, but now resides in Maryland ). Return of the Kings also finds SoulStice reconnecting with frequent collaborator and Halftooth Records artist, Oddisee, (who has previously worked with J-Live, Jazzy Jeff, Talib Kweli, Wordsworth and who produced the bulk of SoulStice' solo-debut) who lends six soulful tracks.
With both SoulStice and Haysoos firmly etched in the east coast hip hop scene after a slew of successful single releases, a few collaborations eventually led to the smash single "Rock Solid," featuring former Terror Squad member, Cuban Link. The single was so successful that the duo began recording an entire album as Wade Waters, which is due out on Wandering Soul in the fall of 2006 with distribution through Raptivism/Ryko. With a sound both revolutionary and classic and a rapidly growing buzz, Wade Waters is the group to watch in 2006 and beyond!
