T-K.A.S.H is the Truth.
After honing his skills on Bay Area
revolutionary hip-hop group The Coup's projects Steal This Album,
Steal This Double Album and Party Music, T-K.A.S.H. ('Keep A
Steady Hustle') is set to unleash his magnum opus, Turf War Syndrome, on a world now weary of
commercialized gangsta fables and the prostitution of hip-hop.
Featuring production work by industry-veteran and fellow revolutionary
hip-hop artist Paris, Turf War Syndrome
chronicles tales of street life, redemption and consequences in the
inner-cities of post-911 America.
From the opening retro stylings of
"American Nightmare" to the disturbing, almost cinematic critiques of
society found in "Made In America," the listener is transported into the
harsh realities of life that permeate Turf War
Syndrome, as T-K.A.S.H. paints haunting images of struggle and
persistence in life on the street.
Conceptualized in documentary
form, the album continues, by way of seamless transition, into the
celebratory "In My Drawz," a solid dance track that is a 'Trojan horse,'
as its feel-good tone serves to mask its true meaning - a call to armed
revolution if conditions for the poor and underrepresented don't improve
And it doesn't stop. From the title track to the
dancehall-esque "Louder Than Words" to the ominous warnings of "Stay
Away," T-K.A.S.H. delivers the goods as only a serious student of real
T-K.A.S.H. initially got his start by working closely
with Bay Area radio show legend Davey D at KPFA radio in Berkeley, CA.
He later went on to cultivate his own following with his own show, The Friday Night Vibe, which was heard weekly in syndication nationwide.
By already having dedicated underground acceptance for his activism
and persistent work through non-commercial radio, T-K.A.S.H. has quickly
become a Bay Area hip-hop icon in his own right. And with a fierce
focus on musical quality and content, combined with the guidance of a
seasoned team of industry veterans, you'll see why T-K.A.S.H.'s voice is
now more relevant than ever.
