KRS-ONE & Buckshot Announce Collaborations For Upcoming New Album

In late 2007, KRS-One and Buckshot both announced that the veteran emcees from The Bronx and Brooklyn respectively would be linking for a collaborative, joint-venture LP. They have opened their studio doors to a whole host of artists, Mary J Blige recorded for the project over a reportedly “tantalizing” Black Milk beat. The track is reportedly titled “On The Grind,” featuring Blige on the chorus, bridge and the song’s opening and closing. Over a decade ago, the Queen of Hip Hop/R&B worked with the label for her famed “I Love You” remix with Smif N’ Wessun.

Other confirmed guests to date are K’naan, as well as label-mates Naledge, Heltah Skeltah and the aforementioned Smif N Wessun. Production duties are already in the works for Havoc, 9th Wonder, Marco Polo, Khrysis, Illmind and MoSS. Other unconfirmed artists include 50 Cent, Immortal Technique and Havoc, the album is presently planned for August release via Duck Down Records.
