Brooklyn hip-hop vets, M.O.P., are gearing up for the release of a collaborative LP, titled Sparta, with German & Danish production team, the Snowgoons.
In late July, M.O.P.’s Billy Danze took to Conspiracy Worldwide Radio to break the news of the upcoming LP, explaining that after getting the first batch of beats from the production collective, he was elated … and that the LP was born.
“[Snowgoons] just sent us some fire, those dudes are incredible,” said Danze. “When you hear this project, you’re going to be satisfied as an M.O.P. fan and a Snowgoons fan.”
Ensuring fans around the world that this will be one of their most diverse sounding albums, the Mash Out Posse member went on to praise the Snowgoons, proclaiming, “They’ve got everything. They’re blazing through and coming from different angles. These guys providing us with that dramatic sound, with those theatrical sounds, with that hard hip-hop … they supplied us with everything. I’m really psyched about this project.”
The duo are so excited about the project that they even called it “their best project in 10 years.” Now, that’s saying something.
Consisting of founders Det and DJ Illegal, plus longtime affiliate and now 3rd member Sicknature, the Snowgoons made their full-length producer album debut with 2007’s German Lugers, released through Babygrande Records. From there, the Snowgoons continued their onslaught of orchestral and epic instrumentals the following year with their sophomore producer album, Black Snow.
Since 2007, the Snowgoons have developed a massive following, starting in Europe and spanning the entire world, becoming a staple in the underground hip-hop scene by working with approximately 100 lyricists. They have gone on to release four additional producer projects and worked with a long list of respected emcees in hip-hop’s underground.
M.O.P. and Snowgoons’ collaborative album, Sparta, is slated to drop November 22 via Babygrande Records.
