Hip Hop duo Big Al and Young THC’s new E.P. release has hit iTunes and may be a sleeper hit. Their Red Cup E.P. comes amid a resurgence of the rap scene in a city with one of the highest rates of unemployment and poverty in the New York Metropolitan area.
Newark, NJ, May 05, 2015 –(PR.com)– Somewhere in Newark, New Jersey there is a red cup overflowing. Is it a party to celebrate the few opportunities and options in a city where 1 in 10 working aged adults is without a job? Might it be another overindulgence in a city that seemingly has a liquor store on every corner? Perhaps, but… It is most likely, however, to be neither. Somewhere in Newark, New Jersey, that cup resides on the cover of an EP from two of the city’s residents; two of a new generation of hip hop artists from the Brick City whose debut EP could be the wake up call for a city that hasn’t seen many major label fortunes since the turn of the century.
Duo, Big Al and Young THC are bringing Newark back into the spotlight with their effort, The Red Cup E.P. produced by label TB3 Entertainment and presented by Skunk TV. The five track extended play pairs up a talented, eclectic and gifted pair of emcees with the kind of charisma and creative approaches to making great music more common of million dollar dealt artists. The vibe of the E.P. is very loose, catchy and fun. The chemistry between the pals is interesting and the beats are tight. It’s not clear what is in those cups but whatever it is, it’s responsible for one of the best indie releases of the year.
Now on sale on iTunes the Red Cup E.P., featuring the single “Mean to Do It” is the beginning of a new era for city that has brought us some of the most unforgettable rappers ever. It seems that we are seeing a repeat of that history.
