Fastlife Music to Release "Thug Matrix" by Tragedy Khadafi on October 4th, 2005

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/25/2005 -- Fastlife Music is set to release the new album by Tragedy Khadafi on October 4, 2005. "Thug Matrix" features Cormega, Raekwon, Havoc of Mobb Deep, Littles & Nature, and features production by Havoc, The Alchemist & Scram Jones.
Tragedy Khadafi, formerly known as The Intelligent Hoodlum, has been a highly revered MC since hip-hop's Golden Era. He is responsible for coining the term "illmatic" as early as 1988, predating Nas's popularization of the word by nearly 6 years. An original member of the legendary Juice Crew, and the kid prodigy of production god Marley Marl, Tragedy is best known for his classic singles "Arrest The President," "Grand Groove," and his show stopping cameo on Mobb Deep's "LA, LA." His combination of Afrocentric culture, the theology of the Nation of Islam, and the everyday struggle of ghetto living makes his songs radiate with righteousness, anger, indignation, and frustration.
