Operation Take Hip Hop Back
Legendary Juice Crew members Craig G & Marley Marl team up once again to release Operation Take Back Hip-Hip. On the heels of Marley Marl's successful album Hip-Hop Lives from 2007 with KRS-One and the announcement of a major motion picture entitled The Vapors based on the Juice Crew's story, a full fledged renaissance is under way. The albums instantly catchy single "Made The Change" (also available from Traffic on June 17th) has already been lighting radio waves on fire, while "The Day The Music Died" shows why Craig G is still one of the most respected lyricists in the game and why he was chosen to write key portions of Eminem's "8 Mile" and 50 Cent's "Get Rich Or Die Trying" movies. Operation Take Back Hip-Hip features a top notch lineup of guest emcees that includes KRS-One, Cormega, Rakaa of Dilated Peoples and Sadat X. Craig G and Marley Marl first worked together way back in 1985 with the release of the two classic 12" singles "Shout" and "Transformer". In 1988, their undeniable chemistry was cemented with their legendary effort entitled "Droppin' Science", from the Marley Marl In Control album. This led to them working together on Craig G's major label solo albums at the turn of the decade. Today, the two effortlessly prove the magic is still there.
