P-Money Climbs US Billboard Charts

P-Money Climbs US Billboard Charts

“BackPack Travels is a soul sample-laced stunner that fuses beautifully paced kick drums with old school rhyme schemes…” **** NZ Herald

“Buckshot is pure Brooklyn, and with P-Money, "Backpack Travels" genuinely reflects the traditionally straightforward stylings of Brooklyn Hip Hop lore.” – hiphopdx.com

New Zealand’s P-Money has hit number 19 on the US Hip-Hop Billboard charts following the release of his album ‘BackPack Travels’ with underground US rap legend Buckshot.

The album also debuted at #4 on the New Zealand iTunes hip-hop charts, and #30 on the US iTunes hip-hop charts.

P-Money has also just release a limited run of exclusive JanSport BackPack Travels backpack bundles, available from his website here.

The 10-song project is entirely produced by P-Money and features acts includingJoey 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".

BackPack Travels is available now from all good record stores and online from iTunes here.
