Rock City Sets Debut For August
After finally setting a release date for their long delayed debut project, Wake The Neighbors, KonLive/Interscope duo Rock City will drop the final installment of their Put the F**KIN Album Out campaign as a free album, their management team announced today (May 1).
On May 12, fans of the Hip-Hop/R&B/Reggae group will be able to download Put the F**KIN Album Out.
The name may have thrown people off, but the original mixtape was created with the fan in mind, explained Rock Citys manager Ray Daniels. We were speaking on behalf of all the people who have supported Rock City since day one and are ready to see them get the attention they deserve. So we came up with the idea to give away music until the label releases the actual Wake The Neighbors.
Daniels revealed to AllHipHop.com that Rock Citys debut Wake The Neighbors is scheduled to hit stores on August 25.
The groups debut album features production by The Hipnotiks, Swizz Beatz The Jugganauts and Duval Traxx, while Akon, Swizz and new DarkChild/Interscope signee Verse Simmonds make guest appearances.
While completing their own projects Rock City group members and brothers Timothy and Theron Thomas have amassed an impressive resume.
The pair have penned hits for the likes of T.I., Flo-Rida, Plies, Akon, Janet Jackson, Usher, and the Pussycat Dolls.
While introducing her single If This Isnt Love on Oprah, Jennifer Hudson proclaimed the Rock City-penned ballad her favorite song from her self-titled debut album.
On April 22, the Thomas brothers were further recognized by their peers when they received their first ASCAP Award for their work on Sean Kingstons 2008 top ten single Take You There.
"We're very grateful for this award, especially since coming from the Virgin Islands and living in the projects things like this aren't supposed to happen people like us, Theron told AllHipHop.com.
The first single from Wake The Neighbors, the aptly-titled Can I Get On, featuring Verse Simmonds is set for release this month.
