‘BackPack Travels’ Album Release Announced


New Zealand’s premier producer P-Money has teamed up with underground Rap legend Buckshot to release new album BackPack Travels, which lands in New Zealand on June 24.

The first video for lead single off the album, "Flute" feat. Brooklyn hip-hop visionariesJoey Bada$$ & CJ Fly dropped today, and is available to view here.

The duo also revealed the album artwork last week with a stop motion video, check it out here.

The 10-song project is entirely produced by P-Money and features acts including Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly of Pro Era, Steele of Smif N Wessun, David Dallas, Raz Fresco,Chelsea Reject & T'Nah Apex.

The collaboration came about through P-Money’s signing to Duck Down Music in 2013, of which legendary frontman of Boot Camp Clik and Black Moon, Buckshot, co-founded.

Releasing his first album through the label, Gratitude, last year - which features a host of veteran hip-hop emcees such as Havoc, M.O.P, Freddie Gibbs, and Roc Marciano, to name a few – the acclaimed release also sparked the creative kinship between the pair, with Buckshot featuring on track "Killuminati".

Now teaming up for their first full-length collaboration, BackPack Travels sees P-Money continuing to make huge international tracks.

BackPack Travels will be released on June 24th on Dirty Records / Dawn Raid Records / Duck Down Music and will be available from all good record and online stores. Pre-orders are available now via iTunes.
