The Hip-Hop documentary, Rubble Kings, has an official soundtrack, produced by Little Shalimore and distributed by Mass Appeal, available to purchase. To celebrate the album, Mass Appeal held a listening event in NYC, which BlameEbro.com was in the house for.
The packed event was held inside the Extra Butter LES sneaker store, which provided the perfect aesthetic for listening to the type of nostalgia Hip-Hop that Rubble Kings would take you back to.The room was filled with Mass Appeal marketing and Rubble Kings’ Albums were scattered on various tables. Pizza and drinks were also flowing as the crowd started to gather in anticipation of listening to the album. But before listening to the album, producer, Little Shalimore provided some background information on the making of the soundtrack. He said:
We came up with this idea to put out an album that was half shit from the score, half shit where I sampled myself and made tracks with all of the great artists I am lucky to call fam and a few months later this is what we got.
Also at the event we caught up with two artists that were featured on the album, rapper, eXquire and singer, Roxiny. eXquire, who was featured on “Warrior Thing” and “Same Damn Thang,” which also featured Ghostface Killah and Boldy James, said recording the album was easy for him because of his familiarity with the subject matter. Roxiny, who was featured on the song “Phoenix” with Tunde Adebimpe, shared a similar sentiment, stating that being on the album provided her with an opportunity to express a woman’s perspective to what was happening in the Bronx.
Rubble Kings will be available for purchase January 15, but you can preorder it now. A digital download of the movie, Rubble Kings also will come with the album.
