The Arsonists Recording New Material, Q-Unique Confirms

A legendary crew reunites in the lab after a decade of group material lasting over a decade.

Veteran Brooklyn, New York Hip Hop group The Arsonists recorded today as a unit for the first time in years, according to founding member Q-Unique. After reuniting on stage last year at the Czech Republic's Hip Hop Kemp, the former Matador Records group has begun recording new material, Q tweeted. Members throughout the years include Jise, Freestyle, D-Stroy, Swel Boogie and Q-Unique.

The group, with ties to the Rocksteady Crew, released 1999's As The World Burns and 2001's Date of Birth before The Arsonists disbanded to pursue solo interests. HipHopDX will keep you updated.

    I've been alive for 14 years, and I've never heard of these guys. To me, that's as good as them having never existed. If these dudes were smart and wanted to increase their visibility in the industry, they would sign with YMCMB and do a song with Wayne or Drake.

    The fuck happened to the other dudes all these years.... Q Dropped a few solo's but the others fell off the face of the earth it seems

    That's funny, I was listening to these dudes just the other day and wondering what the fuck happened to Q and the crew. Is it all 5 or just the 3 like on the last album? Either way I'll be checking for whatever they drop.
