The covers are finally coming off The Unveiling, the debut LP from MarQ Spekt and Karniege as The Invizzibl Men. The result is a ferociously hard hitting record bristling with gunmetal beats and lyrics still dripping with spray-paint. While others attempt to recreate hip-hop’s golden age, The Invizzibl Men reinvent hardcore east-coast hiphop, annihilating verses over futuristic boom-bap. The collaboration might be new, but the duo has earned their stripes as solo artists; Karniege did a stint on the Definitive Jux roster, dropping the memorable “Make News” 12”, toured the world with Vast Aire several times over and kept his name ringing in the underground by popping up on projects by everyone from DJ Ese to Dub L to The Reavers.
MarQ Spekt’s lineage is equally storied if a little grimier; signed to the legendary Subverse records alongside artists like MF DOOM and The Micronauts, MarQ was prominently featured on all of Bigg Jus of Company Flow’s solo albums and the brain behind the streetwise Broady Champs ‘05 debut…Spekt has already cemented his place in the underground pantheon without stepping out of the shadows–until now.
Guests on The Unveiling include Cannibal Ox, C-Rayz, Billy Woods and the Broady Champs. Backwoodz Studioz is proud to present what we believe will be one of this millennium’s underground hip-hop classics.
