Camp Lo Returns to Release EP in AugustMay 3, 2007 at 2:00 pm | Posted in Hip Hop News/Press Releases | Leave a comment
Camp Lo, the smooth-talking, trend-setting Bronx duo, are returning to bring their innovative brand of hip hop back to the airwaves. The duo of Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede have teamed back up with legendary producer Ski Beatz to release their new 7-track EP ” Ski Beatz presents: Camp Lo … Another Heist” in August 2007.
Camp Lo is prepping for their first large release since 2002’s Let’s Do It Again. The first single from the EP, “Ticket 4 Two”, demonstrates Sonny and Geechi continuing to lay down mischievous but appealing lyrics and flawlessly delivered verses while Ski brings back the melodic-soul element evident in the production on their debut album Uptown Saturday Night. “The cats who never heard Camp Lo’s music are gonna be surprised to hear something this new and refreshing, and the longtime fans will definitely not be disappointed,” Ski explains. “I’m not in the business of making wack music or compromising my sound to fit into any categories, so check us out.” The album will be released through a joint venture between Ski’s label Redefinition Records and High Water Music.
In 1997, Camp Lo teamed up with Ski Beatz, the producer behind “Dead Presidents” and “Feelin’ It” amongst other tracks on Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt , to release the highly acclaimed album Uptown Saturday Night. With songs like the chart topping single “Luchini AKA This is it,” Camp Lo was able to introduce a unique style of blaxploitation, street slang over funk-soul production, which garnered the group crossover success.
