Thread: Binary Star (also underrated as hell)

    Default Binary Star (also underrated as hell)

    aight check it

    Binary Star was an underground rap duo that formed in the 1990s in Pontiac, Michigan. They are comprised of OneManArmy and Senim Silla.

    The duo started as an independent record label group, under their own Terrorist Records imprint. In 1999, they released Waterworld, which was recorded on a budget of only $500, because they could only afford studio time for a single take per song. All 17 tracks were produced by Trackezoids, formerly known as Held Hostage Productions. Only 1,000 copies were printed. Later on, they were signed up by a distributor. This allowed Binary Star to re-mix and re-arrange the WaterWorld tracks and also add new ones. The final creation was Masters of the Universe. It sold over 20,000 copies, but Binary Star was never paid by the distributor. The album was released after the group had broken up almost a year ago. OneManArmy states that the main reason for the break-up was on creative differences, and says that although him and Silla have never had an unfriendly conversation, they have done venues together, but the group will stay disbanded. Currently, OneManArmy records under the name of One Be Lo under Subterraneous Records. Senim Silla is coming out with a new album soon under Sleeper Cell Records.

    I tried getting a hold of Master of the Universe. I could only find a used disc on amazon and they wanted $70 for it. That's a little too steep for me but I agree, they did some amazing songs.

    That's some bullshit, dude, $70? They just re-released it, they have like 4 copies at my record store for like $12.

    That shit is classicity, boy, The KGB might be the sickest posse cut ever.
    In the world I see, you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forest around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty carpool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

    they were giving the album for free on THEIR site
    the record label that distributed the album supposeably never paid them a dime, so on the site they were promoting people to download the album FOR FREE
    looks like they took off the links tho.. wonder why
