Veteran deejay, producer and mixtape master Tony Touch has been on hiatus for some time, from releasing albums. His 2000 debut, The Piece Maker included appearances from Wu-Tang Clan, Gang Starr and Mos Def, among others. After a 2004 follow-up, the onetime Tommy Boy Records, and later Koch Records artist, appeared to focus on his Toca Tuesdays Shade 45 radio show and events.

Yesterday (April 4), Tony Toca announced that he’s reached a new agreement with Sony/Red to release Piece Maker 3 (50 MC’s Reunion). The June 25 retail mixtape will pay homage to the Rocksteady Crew member’s 1990s works, specifically the Power Cypha series, that was famous for featuring upwards of 50 freestyles from New York Hip Hop legends and rising stars.

At this time, it is not yet known which artists include the 50 emcees Tony Touch is working with.
