“I’m honored to be working with eMC. These guys are amazing lyricists and true to the art form,” said Penalty CEO Neil Levine in a statement. “Masta Ace, Stricklin, Punchline and Wordsworth are Hip Hop to the core.”
eMC will be releasing a new EP this April followed by a full album in the summer. The two projects will be the first official releases from the collective since 2008’s The Show.
“I see this signing as a real turning point in the direction of underground Hip Hop and how it will be viewed by the masses,” said Juice Crew member Masta Ace. “We now have the freedom to continue to make the music our fans want, but with the help of Penalty Records, we have a platform for exposure to a larger audience.”
