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 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.

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides.
