Inspectah Deck and 7L & Esoteric have announced that they are joining forces as CZARFACE, with plans to deliver a project in the near future.
According to a press release, the two acts joined forces as an addendum to their 1999 collaboration “Speaking Real Worlds.” The project will feature guest appearances from Action Bronson, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, Roc Marciano and Large Professor, as well as additional beats from DJ Premier and album art by Lamour Supreme from Mishka NYC.
“The industry doesn’t need another well packaged, put together ‘act,’ instead fans are once again gravitating to the seasoned vets and newcomers that are still true to the game,” said Deck.
“We are CZARFACE because they know our faces and they know us for being dope rhyme suppliers, like Tony Montana we are known for our balls and our word; lyrically we will conquer the world and everything in it,” he continues. Esoteric adds, “CZARFACE is a vigilante, anti-hero character who serves as the face of the project, and his focus is on annihilating the media darlings that the mainstream caters to.”
UPDATE: Label Brick Records has announced that Inspectah Deck and 7L & Esoteric’s CZARFACE album will release on February 19, 2013. Announced guests include Ghostface Killah, Vinnie Paz, DJ Premier, Mr. MFN eXquire, Action Bronson, Oh No, Cappadonna and Roc Marciano.
The release will be available digitally, on deluxe edition CD and 2LP.
The trio released a teaser video for the album last week.
