With a career that has spanned almost two decades, co-founding the legendary Jedi Mind Tricks as well as East Coast indie supergroup Army of the Pharaohs, underground MC Vinnie Paz is venturing out on his own with a solo debut, Season of the Assassin, due June 22nd on Enemy Soil.
Aside from being in true lyrical form on Season of the Assassin, Vin has enlisted the help of a virtual who’s who of artists and producers. Emcee’s such as Beanie Sigel, Clipse, Freeway, Paul Wall, ILL Bill, and R.A. the Rugged Man all lend verses to Paz’s solo debut. Production credits go to such legendary beatmakers as, DJ Muggs (Cypress Hill/Soul Assassins), Madlib, Lord Finesse (D.I.T.C.), Da Beatminerz, Lil’ Fame (M.O.P.), MoSS, 4th Disciple (Wu-Tang), Bronze Nazareth (Wu-Tang), JMT’s own DJ Kwestion, Shuko and more.
Vinnie unleashed the first video, “Keep Movin’ On” featuring Shara Worden, this morning on his official website, www.jmthiphop.com. The video is directed by Joe Frantz, producer and cinematographer behind Jackass and MTV’s Viva La Bam, and features cameos by Philadelphia icon Tony Luke Jr (of “The Nail” and “Invincible”) and Scott Vogel (lead singer of hardcore band Terror).
