We Want In is the Outlawz declaration to music moguls, program directors, industry gatekeepers and hip hop bosses that with all due respect, they want in the game. Dubbed the street LP, 1 Nation Entertainment and Gold Dust Media will launch We Want In throughout North America, the UK, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa on August 5th.
Battling barriers is the status quo when Operating Under Thug Laws As Warriors. The Outlawz; EDI, Young Noble and Kastro have toured all over the world, galvanized countless devotees, and although they get the utmost respect from their musical peers, they have theoretically been on the outside looking in for over a decade.
"We've been knocking for a long time now," says Outlaw EDI "Now we're kicking in doors. We Want In is just another way of saying it's our turn." He continues. "A lot of these cats out here took pages from our books and were inspired by our rhymes...we don't want any of their money, we just want to do business."
The Outlawz have labored tirelessly to be recognized as one of hip hop's most prominent groups. As independent artists they are constantly on the grind and in the lab. They have been featured in top music publications from XXL and Source to Murder Dog and Scratch, earning honors as underground legends and boasting a discography that includes some of the most successful rap albums including; All Eyez On Me, Still I Rise, 2 Pac & Outlawz, Better Dayz, and Makaveli.
According to Young Noble, "We not begging to be accepted -- come on, we're OutlawzWe've worked with all of these dudes, kept it real with our fans and have held our own, but our money certainly ain't matched our fame." He goes on to say, "Mark heads and artists are always speaking on how they ride for Pac, but respect ain't being shown for what we helped make. We on over 100 songs with Pac and 60 mill sold, how much work we gotta place in to get the credit we deserve?"
Even In the absence of a major mark deal, the Outawz still consider themselves 'successful' and remain driven by their passion for making music, taking care of their families, building on the legacy of fallen Outlawz; Kadafi and Makaveli and staying right to ghetto gospel that they personify. The We Want In street LP speaks to the struggle for all the underground, independent hustlers forging their imprint in the game.
The Outlawz are launching the video for the album's first single; "We Want In" in the month of June. The street LP will be in stores August 5th. Submit Press Requests to Trea Davenport (Trea Day Management and Publicity) at 678.570.4930 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
