‘THE PRODIGAL SON’: $STEEN’S SELF-PRODUCED COMEBACK ALBUM

Published

on

Super-talented Ghanaian producer and artiste, $STEEN has finally returned to action with the release of a self-produced project dubbed “The Prodigal Son” – a title that best fits his comeback. Listen Here.

Returning from a long musical hiatus, $STEEN draws inspiration and comparison with the biblical story of a father’s long-lost son returning home. However, unlike the biblical prodigal son, $STEEN returns with his new found production ability and seven songs ranging from Afro Pop to Amapiano, artistically compiled into a master project.

“The Prodigal Son,” officially announces his comeback with two moderato tracks; “Nirvana” and “Jago,” as cautions for the listener to probably call 911 before lightning up gasoline on the entire body of work.

$STEEN – THE PRODIGAL SON (TRACKLIST)

Not even the impatient fan heard on the intro of “Gasolina” might be fully ready for the breakneck speed, energetic vibes and overdose of Amapiano on the track.

Halfway through the project and it’s evident that adequate time and work has been invested in producing this classic. Mid-journey still, $STEEN’s hopeless romantic past comes haunting again on “Sister Fatima” – a likely sequel to his last release. His luscious vocals failed to win the damsel but just enough to get the listener’s sympathy with resonating lyrics.

He talks unreciprocated energy, heartbreak and sheds light on a local taboo subject – drug use as a coping mechanism. $STEEN taps superbly into the Afro Pop instrumentals as sweet-flowing melodies gush out nonstop. He again proves to be a problem on “Asem” before switching from moderato to allegro on “Bust Down.”

$STEEN completes the journey as a “Prodigal Son” on the ultimate song which delightsomely features the lyrics “don’t let me go.”

Hold on to $STEEN, “The Prodigal Son,” a potential classic forever and stream on all digital streaming platforms.

Messiah Of Madness drops Big Jerm produced “Crown Royal Bag”

Published

on

 Grime-Boss The Messiah Of Madness returns with a new video / new single!  “Crown Royal Bag” is some next-level horrorcore with no lyrical filter from the heartless and homicidal artist.  Most concerningly is that the artist claims some of these situations are true stories.  The animated video also reaffirms this is nobody you want to cross paths with as he disassembles opps while on a mission.  “Crown Royal Bag” was produced by “Steeltown” (aka Pittsburgh, PA) legend Big Jerm, who has also laced tracks for Mac MillerWiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg.

The track is taken from the recently released EP You Already Know (out now Dominion Hill Records).  Besides “Crown Royal Bag” the rest of the EP is self-produced by The Messiah Of Madness producer alter-ego Tone Fultz.  In this guise he is equally adept at creating the type of raucous instrumentals that made Wu-Tang and Mobb Deep touchstones of the 1990’s. 

 This is the first new Messiah Of Madness since last year’s Monstrosity LP (Global Sounds/MNRK) but prior to that was a twelve year break between 2011’s The Ordeal LP and Monstrosity.  This was mostly due to Tone Fultz keeping busy on the production side.  Some of his recent work includes “Get On Your Knees” the new single from Wu-Tang / Theodore Unit affiliate Solomon Childs.
