Despite the fact that Stoupe ain't got shit to do with deutschrap, he deserves at least a single post on
this any hip-hop blog... because the legendary Jedi Mind Tricks producer and beatmeister prepares the March 31st 2009 release of his highly anticipated debut solo release some already call a true hip-hop masterpiece.
For over a decade, and through 6 hit underground albums, Stoupe has been creating sonic backdrops for Vinnie Paz's unique brand of hardcore lyricism.
It's about time, Stoupe stepped out on his own with "Decalogue" and created one of the first few must haves in 2009, or how underground9.blogspot.com calls it, "a modern masterpiece. Crafted with an exacting eye towards maintaining the balance that has made his production style instantly recognizable the world over (and has inspired an entire sub-genre of imitators and impersonators), Decalogue is the long-awaited producer album from one of underground hip-hop's best."
Pairing up with "appropriate indie MCs" from across the hip-hop spectrum, such as Slaine (La Coka Nostra), M.O.P., Saigon, Joell Ortiz, Outerspace, the Army of the Pharaohs fam & more, Stoupe truly expands the scope of indie hip-hop with this album.
