Random Axe holds Listening Party in NYC for upcoming self-titled album

Last night (Apr. 25th), RandomAxe  held a listening session at the Dominian NY Theater & Lounge in New York for their upcoming self-titled debut album. Black Milk, Guilty Simpson, and Sean Price were all present to play tracks from and discuss the album with features by Rock (Heltah Skeltah), Danny Brown, Roc Marciano, Trick Trick and others.  The album is due out on June 14th through Duck Down Music.

“Sean P. is one of those artists who’s real consistent. He’s been doing his thing for so long, and you ain’t never heard no whack s**t from P,” said Black Milk, the Detroit MC/producer who released the lauded full-length “Album of the Year” last fall. “Then you got me on the beats. I dropped a few verses, but I focused mostly on the production side.”

Guilty Simpson, another Detroit native, told the crowd that it was an “easy decision” to commit to the group when first approached about the collaboration in 2008. And Brooklyn mixtape maestro Sean Price said of Black Milk, “He can rhyme his ass off, and his beats are crazy.”

Judging from the listening, “Random Axe” will be one of the summer’s most immediate indie rap releases, with tracks like “Chewbacca,” “Understand This” and “Random Call” featuring dizzying production and hard-nosed rhymes.  –Billboard
