View Full Version : Official M.O.P. "Foundation" LP thread (NEW TRACK + INTERVIEW INSIDE!!)

08-18-2009, 04:08 PM
The 5th leak from the forthcoming "Foundation" album dropping the 14th of September and shiiiit am i looking forward to this joint. i was bumping the 5 tracks front-to-back just now and it's sounding very promising, liking every song. Hopefully they put that 6 minute long "Brooklyn" with Busta as the closer of the album, now that's an anthem.

01. Blow The Horns
02. Bang Time (ft. Styles P)
03. Street Life (ft. DeMarco
04. Shell Castings
05. Brooklyn (ft. Busta Rhymes)

Here's the interview with Lil' Fame, i was worried that the album wouldn't feature any DJ Premier beats but Fizzy confirms that he's on.

At one of the Rock the Bells tour stops, Lil Fame spoke to HipHopDX about M.O.P.'s new album, The Foundation. That album has been heavily anticipated by the group's following and the production list for the album may have fans' anticipation growing even more.

"We just finished off the album. It's called The Foundation. It's dropping on September 14th on E1," Lil Fame noted.

Also, expect a list of producers set to impress many M.O.P. fans, including work from DJ Premier.

"We got Statik Selektah. We got me, I'm doing some production. We got DR Period. We also got DJ Premier." Of Premier, he added that it was a wonderful experience to link back up with the fellow New York vet. "It's beautiful, man. We tried to get some more from him but we didn't have time."

Recently, the crew also got to work with Slaughterhouse on a track that got some buzz through the net but didn't actually make the group's album.

"That was fun. Slaughterhouse, they're my homeboys. They're some of the best motherfuckin' lyricists in the game. It's just dope to be a part of some shit like that. We're going back to the lyrics and the music. It ain't no gimicks no more."

And here is the new joint, "Shell Castings", shit is Billy Daze ripping this shit!!

nah i'm really feeling "Street Life", that shit is hot.. the auto-tune ain't fucking it up for me, plus the lyrics and beat is real good on that one. i love it when MOP is on that heartfelt shit like "Blood Sweat Tears" and "Dead & Gone".

Claaa7 thanks for posting this. M.O.P. are my boys. They always bring the hardcore music but they disappointed me with Marxmen Cinema and Ghetto Warfare albums. I hope this new album is tight.

Shouldn't M.O.P.'s song be called Shell Casings instead of Shell Castings? LOL. Castings doesn't sound right.
