Rock Mecca recruits more trained assassins to kill the track on the second installment of “Killa”. This time Rock is joined by legendary Brand Nubian emcee Sadat X, true school veteran Shabaam Sahdeeq and underground phenom Tha God Fahim on Killa II (Cypher at the Kumite). Produced by Jake Palumbo of SpaceLab Recordings, the posse cut is the closer on Rock’s EP: FE26 the Ironsides, available now on all platforms.
The properties of iron are being channeled here to bring you hardcore Hip-Hop in the form of 8 tracks, all bangers, no filler.
Recorded at the Spacelab, a studio in Brooklyn, N.Y, which is quickly becoming a go-to spot for the cream of New York’s underground rap scene, a few frequent passerby’s were pulled to the side to drop a sixteen as Rock was working on Ironworld.
The EP that resulted is a star-studded project with a who’s who of Hip-Hop’s true school. Features include a rare appearance by New Jersey legends Artifacts, a collaboration of Queens Godfathers Kool G. Rap, Tragedy Khadafi and Blaq Poet as well as Flipmode Squad’s Rah Digga and West Coast spitter Ras Kass. Brooklyn vets Smif-N-Wessun and Shabaam Sahdeeq also make an appearance as well as new school phenom Tha God Fahim.
FE26: The Ironsides is the first of a few releases slated to be released by Rock Mecca this year and another standout project to add to the cannon of his discography.
