After five years of sitting and waiting on the bench, North Philly rapper Peedi Crakk has parted ways with Roc-A-Fella Records in favor of booming independent label with Amalgam Digital.
The tech-savvy company responsible for launching hip-hop’s first genre specific digital retail store attracted Peedi with their innovative business model and creatively fostering environment.
Peedi Crakk joins a roster that includes the likes of Joe Budden, Tash (of Tha Alkaholiks), and the Juggaknots. Through the deal he will release his debut album, Camel Face Hunting Season, in September.
“Yup. I’m back! And I feel unstoppable,” said Peedi. “My flow is advanced and as an artist, I’m getting better, especially without the claws of Roc-A-Fella digging at my back. I’ve been a free agent for the past three months and now signing with the Amalgam Digital label for my first project, I feel even more unstoppable. They are providing exactly what Peedi always needed … proper promotion and distribution. BANG! It’s Camel Face Hunting Season.”
The first single is set to be “More Towels,” features production by Vinny Idol. Later, when released, AmalgamDigital.com will offer exclusive bonus tracks when the album is downloaded from the website.
Peedi Crakk is a founding member of State Property, alongside Beanie Sigel, Freeway, and Young Gunz, and has earned respect for his lyrical talent and rhythmic flow.
Dubbed “The Prince of State Property,” he created buzz with his single “One for Peedi” when it came out on the “Paid In Full” soundtrack. Since then, he’s gone on to work with artists like Twista, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and Ne-Yo on the singer’s hit “Stay.”
