The legendary NY crew known as the Arsonists return in grand style with a new record alongside JMT member Vinnie Paz titled “Tough Guy”. Over a brooding C-Lance produced backdrop, the emcees go haywire with the lyrics and no punches were pulled in the process.
“Tough Guy” is the first leak of six new tracks that the crew (composed of D-Stroy, Q-Unique, Freestyle, Jise and Swel) recorded recently. These tracks will appear on the forthcoming double CD/digital-album release via Below System Records on February 16th. This will include a deluxe edition of the group’s classic debut album As The World Burns (first released in 1999) which yielded such underground anthems as “Blaze,” “Halloween” and the “Session.”
It will also include “Lost In The Fire”, which will include the new tracks as well as many unreleased and rare gems. Guests will also include Ill Bill (La Coka Nostra, Non-Phixion), J-Live, High & Mighty and Mass Influence.
The Arsonists is a family of emcees from Brooklyn, NY. Their first release was in 1996 called, “The Session”, and they’ve been releasing music ever since.
