Major Update From Reef The Lost Cauze: 4 New Releases For 2008

Reef the Lost Cauze, Philly’s top dog and one of the dopest unsigned acts in the nation, is set to have a crazy 2008 with 4 releases on the bill. First up is the follow up to his highly sought mixtape “Long Live the Cauze.” The new mixtape, Long Live Vol 2: “I am legend”, will hit the streets on April 22nd through the net and via Reefs new imprint: “Fuck You, Pay Me Records”. The first video and single “Don’t Trust your Girlfriend” (a different take on Gym Class Heroes hit single “Girlfriend’) will be out April Fools day on Reefthelostcauze.com, Reefs long defunct website will be re-launching next month, and will be a free download. April 1st, 2008.

Following that will be 2 collab albums, the first being a 10 track album with Boston’s own Guns-n-Butta (Stu Bangaz and J Scrilla) called Fight Music, an album made strictly for the battle rap fans who want to hear that raw shit. So far, guests include Big Noyd, Akir and the king of the bostons underground, Slaine. Slated for summer, this record is sure to make heads SPAZZ. Look for the first single “Ima G” dropping in early
May.

Next up, the King n The Cauze Project, a joint effort between two of the dopest in the underground, as well as lifelong friends, King Magnetic and Reef the Lost Cauze. Details are sketchy, but trust, these 2 together can only equal classic. Mag produced Reefs “Sound of Philadelphia” and is gaining buzz thru his work with AOTP as well as his own solo efforts. Tentative Release date: July 2008. A music video for the song is coming this April.

Last but certainly not least, the highly anticipated, long awaited follow up to Feast or Famine, Reefs new solo album A Vicious Cyle slated for a Sept 23rd release and feat some of the illest out (so far collabs include Termanology, Evidence, Brother Ali and more), production by STRESS (Ghostsface, Gym Class Heroes,), Eyego Direct, Marco Polo, King Magnetic, Evidence and more ) is being finalized this month. This record is 3 years in the making and is Reefs finest album to date. Although many labels are bidding for this album, expect it to drop via Fuck You Pay Me, Reefs own imprint, this fall. 2008 looks good for the lovers of raw rap.
