M.O.P. & THE SNOWGOONS: Get Yours (2011) + new album ‘Sparta’ announced

Billy Danze and Lil Fame return on a beat with horns so massive they’re traditionally used in cinema to announce the arrival of a gargantuan threat – the materialisation of a million-strong Persian army led by a seven foot pervert on the Spartan horizon perhaps. Coincidentally, Get Yours is the first single off Sparta (due 22 November) the forthcoming album hook-up between M.O.P. and Danish/ German production duo The Snowgoons. How did this come about? It seems that (in a bizarre mirroring of ancient history) Billy Danze and Lil Fame were innocently minding their own business in NY when they were suddenly assailed by an overwhelming number of beats from another continent. Far from a spirited but ultimately suicidal resistance they opted for the if you can’t beat them, join them option and this is the result. Have a listen. You’ll get yours alright…

Hailing from Brownsville , Brooklyn , Billy Danze and Lil Fame have solidified their reputation as iconic lyricists through their years of hard-hitting rhymes and unparalleled tenacity. Never compromising their style and having shared the mic with industry greats such as Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Styles P, Guru, ODB, Busta Rhymes, and Redman, just to name a few, the duo has rightfully earned its status as one of the most revered acts in hip-hop today.

In Late July 2011, Billy Danze took to Conspiracy Worldwide Radio to break the news that M.O.P.’s upcoming LP would be a collaborative effort with German & Danish production team, the Snowgoons. Speaking on the album, Danze said, “[Snowgoons] just sent us some fire…those dudes are incredible…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.” Further, listeners can prepare for what Danze and Lil’ Fame consider “their best project in 10 years.”
