Flush from the success of co-producing Eminem's "Bad Guy" from the rapper's platinum-selling 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', the Australian/Melbourne-based producer M-Phazes has furrowed back into the New York City rap turf to team up with Sean Price for a new 5 track EP project titled 'Land of the Crooks'. You can stream the full 'Land of the Crooks EP' which dropped on 17th December, as Sean Mandela drops his inimitable punchlines all over dusky M-Phazes productions, the album comes complete with artwork inspired by the vintage '80s flick 'Crocodile Dundee and also includes collaborations with Roc Marciano, Guilty Simpson and Loudmouf Choir (on the equally alluring "Bag of Shit"), plus a Small Professor remix and instrumental takes of the tracks to boot.
The EP includes all of the instrumental passes, as well as a "Crookapella," which consists of various scratch stems taken from the EP, in addition to the isolated drums, sound effects and acapella of the "Land of the Crooks" single.
