(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop group eMC is set to drop their second full length album The Tonite Show on May 5. The follow-up to the 2008 LP The Show will be released via M3/Penalty Entertainment/Sony Red.
Masta Ace, Stricklin, and Wordsworth signed with Penalty Entertainment and Sony RED distribution in 2014. The crew’s first project under the label, The Turning Point EP, came out in May of last year.
“We’re happy to continue our relationship with eMC who are three of the most talented MCs in the game,” says Neil Levine, Penalty Entertainment President and CEO. “The Tonite Show shows both their versatility and lyrical skills guaranteed to satisfy their fans as well as expanding their base”.
The album’s first single “Fly Thoughts” features Pearl Gates and was produced by Kic Beats. B-Real, Xzibit, and Sadat X add lyrics on respective songs. Actress Rosie Perez and comedians Russell Peters and Tony Rock appear in skits on the project as well.
“We realize it’s been a long wait for the fans since the EP came out but I think the extra time in the studio really paid off. With the help of some very talented people in Hollywood and in the music industry we have really outdone ourselves,” states Masta Ace. “I can’t wait to see the fans react to this record. It’s an experience that goes beyond the great verses and hooks. I’m proud to be a part of this and to be in a group with two talented, responsible and grounded brothers like Stricklin and Wordsworth!”
