Mr. Lif gets Supersized on Mo' Mega

Monday, May 01, 2006

(Brooklyn, NY April 24, 2006) Some artists make albums because they can. The great ones make albums because they have to. With that said, the first thing you need to know about Boston-bred MC Mr. LifÕs new album, MoÕ Mega, is that this is the album he had to make.

Hot off of last yearÕs smash success with the Perceptionists (his collaboration with fellow MC Akrobatik and one of Rolling StoneÕs Top 50 Albums of 2005), Lif is back with an arsenal of new rhymes that showcase his massive talents as an MC, poet, and true life reporter. Led off by the driving single "Brothaz," the album covers a wide spectrum ranging from introspective deliberation to biting social commentary. And while Lif is not one to mince his words, the album maintains a balance of heavy subjects mixed with more light-hearted fare. Mo Mega's songs touch on everything from the gluttony of American consumerism in "Ultra/Mega" and "The Fries", to the dark underbelly of the music industry in the parody "Murs is my Manager", to a comical look at proper hygiene in "Washitup!"

Producer and Def Jux head honcho El-P was enlisted to produce the album and continues to push the boundaries of hip-hop with a sound that is one part classic boom-bap and one part post-millennial urban screech. The result is 11 driving tracks that will get your head nodding, your fist pumping, and the adrenalin flowing. Mo' Mega is slated for release on June 13th and will be supported by a national tour.

Also worthy of note is that Mo' Mega will be available for purchase in digital format from the Defjux Pharmacy; their brand new download service (store.definitivejux.net). Fans will be able to purchase digital downloads directly from the source and have access to exclusive remixes, live tracks, and more.
