:: About Estee Nack & Purpose and ’14 Forms: The Book of Estee Nack’ ::

Growing up in the streets of Lynn, Massachusetts, there are very few artists who genuinely preserve the essence of hip-hop in its golden age… This is where hip-hop collaborative Tragic Allies have been able to set themselves apart from their peers throughout the years.

In 2015, Tragic Allies are delivering yet another gift to the legacy of the golden age. This time the Allies frontmen Estee Nack and Purpose come together with plans on further solidifying their Tragic Allies brand as a dominant force in hip-hop with their new full length offering, “14 Forms: The Book of Estee Nack”, set to be released on underground powerhouse Ill Adrenaline Records. After making notable appearances on Tragic Allies classic debut album “The Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil” as well as 2013’s underground smash album 7 G.E.M.S. (Tragic Allies & Tragedy Khadafi) “Golden Era Music Sciences”, an ideologically refreshed Estee Nack drops what he considers to be his testament of truth, justice and righteousness unto those – who like him (1st generation American born to immigrants from the Dominican Republic) – were raised combating the daily trials and tribulations of survival in minority-majority, low-income neighborhoods. Nack lets us know how serious he is about preserving the purity of his overall message by handling all the mic work on the entire album, equipping his rugged vocal delivery to manifest topics ranging from the struggle and pride of immigrants (particularly Dominicans) in America and abroad, to his ideas on the social structure, fake friends, sex, and the science of the universe.

The front-to-back play-worthy musical backdrops are ingeniously mapped by Purpose who continues to carve his legacy as a great producer, after providing stellar production on the previously released 7 G.E.M.S. and Paranom albums, offering a folk-like array of dark, funky basslines, dusty drum patterns and mellow-dreary melodic landscapes that – while remaining grimy and dark (true to the Purpose influenced Tragic Allies sound) – are reminiscent to a more grassroots sound, if not a deep inner city blues. This year, Tragic Allies continue to hit hard with Purpose and Nack’s MC/production styles blending as perfectly as expected, drawing listeners up into a trance like state, inspiring feelings of laughter, pride, sadness, anger, love and revolution per the trademark Tragic Allies sound.

R.A. The Rugged Man – Media Midgets (Official Music Video)

“Legends Never Die” in stores now. Order the album now at Also available on iTunes:

More than two decades after their classic collaboration “Every Record Label Sucks Dick,” legendary emcee R.A. The Rugged Man and iconic producer Buckwild are back with another powerful statement, in the form of R.A.’s new music video “Media Midgets”. This time around, the target is broader: from TV producers to radio stations to government propaganda. “Society continues to be brainwashed and programmed,” explains the Rugged Man. “They are told what to watch, what to wear, how to think, how to vote, who’s lives are important and unimportant, what music and entertainment is relevant. The youth especially need to know that they are being programmed, and spoon fed another man’s agenda. They have to think for themselves.”

For the video, director Douglas Quill envisioned a dystopian, post-apocalyptic future where free thought and expression are dead. “It’s basically society being programmed and turned into mass marketed puppets, until the truth teller shows up and flips the switch,” says R.A. “That’s when society revolts against the oppressive brain washing machine. I think it’s deep but fun and super visual at the same time. This is my most ambitious, biggest, most cinematic video so far.”
