Ayatollah New Instrumental Album “Louder” Out April 22nd

Ayatollah is one of those rare producers who has managed to bridge the gap between classic New York Hip Hop production and today’s current flashy style. His new all-instrumental album called “Louder” is a testament to hot beats, past, present, and future. Hailing from Queens, Ayatollah has produced for predominantly New York-based rappers including Ghostface Killah, G-Unit, Rakim, Inspectah Deck, Guru, Tragedy Khadafi, R.A. The Rugged Man, Wordsworth, Vast Aire, Afu-Ra, as well as many others.

Ayatollah first received mainstream recognition after producing Rawkus rapper Mos Def’s hit “Ms. Fat Booty”, the first single off his “Black on Both Sides” album; whilst subsequently receiving a gold plaque for probably his most well-known track to date, Styles P’s smash hit “My Life” featuring Organized Konfusion legend Pharoahe Monch, which appeared on the Rawkus Records compilation “Soundbombing III”. With influences such as Marly Marl, 45 King, and Pete Rock, Ayatollah has been able to create a sound steeped in Hip Hop culture nearly impossible to mimic in today’s copycat market of beatmaking. “Louder” is an instrumental collection of Ayatollah’s favorite compositions, all of which have never been heard before by the public.
