You are now blazin' with the best. Tone Spliff is back with Work Ethics, the highly anticipated follow-up to 2009's now classic Authentic. Via his imprint, Mind Write Music, he teams up with Belmont Records to give the audience more of that uncut rawness. Similar to Authentic in style and structure, he's hitting us with another outstanding compilation, complete with cuts & head-nodders galore for 2011 and beyond.
Tone has spent time in the game and proves hard work and dedication pays off. Critics have heralded Utica, N.Y.'s Tone Spliff as one of the best "new" producers in Hip-Hop and have been patiently waiting for this star-studded release. As expected, Spliff is giving his fans another sonic backdrop highlighting the hottest MC's from coast to coast.
The first single, "Most Recognized", sets the stage for this summer's masterpiece and features superstar Sean Price, Philly renaissance man, Baby Blak, & the intense Irealz. The soulful track is in heavy rotation on Sirius/XM Radio, currently receiving spins on Tony Touch's "Toca Tuesdays" and DJ Eclipse's "Rap Is Outta Control" show.
Tone Spliff's dedication to his craft is amazing. He gets busy by showing us "The Rules Of The Game" alongside BK's grimy emcee Agallah and heavy rhyme spitters JoJo Pelligrino and Juxtapose. His epic, empire state of mind production shines throughout his second full- ength effort. Simply witness Emilio Rojas pouring his heart out on Spliff's introspective "Perseverance", or catch Massachusetts' own Termanology, lounging on "The After Party". NY legends, Craig G and Sadat X also stomp through on the street banger"The Chosen" feat. Chaundon.
Tone has been blessed to come from an era when loyalty and respect mattered, and still does. Work Ethics pays homage to everyone making it happen. Once again entirely produced by Spliff, his mind is indeed at work. This refreshing album is exactly what Hip-Hop needs. A front to back listen for real heads. As our culture is tested daily, Tone Spliff rolls up another audible treat. Cop Work Ethics. The clock is ticking..........
