Setting the pace for 2008, the entire Living Legends crew locked down at Encore Studio (Dr Dre’s The Chronic 2001, Eminem Marshall Mathers LP, etc.) to record ‘The Gathering’, set for nationwide release on their own Legendary Music label. Each song in this brand new collection features every single MC on every single track, and it is definitely the most well crafted batch since their inception.
As a collective, the prolific Legendary crew has sold well over a quarter million records between them. The line-up includes Murs, The Grouch, Luckyiam, Eligh, Scarub, Sunspot Jonz, Aesop and Bicasso.
‘The Gathering’ is a seven song collection highlighted by a socially conscious anthem for peace, while not forgetting to move the crowd with heavy bangers, catchy hooks and fire-spitting verses.
The record was mastered by Grammy Nominated Mike Lazer (Gnarls Barkely “St. Elsewhere”) at Paramount Mastering and Recording and has a sound bigger than anything coming from the independent hip hop movement.
‘The Gathering’, a precursor to a full length coming in late ‘08, serves to warn the greater hip hop massive: Don’t forget the longtime leaders of the Wild West coast!
The Gathering is out 28th July on Legendary Music.
