Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) May 27, 2013 -- Hip-hop artist KAIL has announced the digital release of his much-anticipated album, "Blvd Bill Presents: The Smashout," set to drop on May 28, 2013. The six-song EP spotlights KAIL's ruthlessly revamped sound and officially marks the end of the west coast rapper's five-year hiatus. KAIL's multi-faceted career comeback includes writing/producing an upcoming web series and a mash-up of game-changing ventures that showcase his signature, poison-penned style.
He likens the vibe of "Blvd Bill Presents: The Smashout" to "a man in all black and a ski mask, pill-high in the hood, at a bottom-feeder topless bar." Production came from various sources in order to satisfy the album's demanding lineup: Iditarod was done by internet giant TBM Music; Hellfyre Club label mate Subtitle supplied the track for 1st & Normandie; Have My Payout on the Way Out (Guey Out) and Broke Brothaz Be Quiet were courtesy of Team Supreme; Nicole Brown came from Tony Heat, and the final track, The Smashout, KAIL (proudly) "stole from David Banner." He says they're keeping a short story short with this ride-or-die debut, leaving him primed and ready to rev the engine of his battle call back into everyday life.
Lyrically, KAIL offers a lush landscape that merges the sound of hip-hop with the school of human behavior, resulting in a musical mash- up that is equal parts dirty, diverse and dominating: roaring rhymes and playful, penetrating prose, artfully anchored by vicious, vinyl-worthy verbiage. His effortlessly explicit, did-he-really-just-say-that style hints at a Slick Rick-meets-Black Dynamite hybrid, though his novelty lies in random, relevant shout-outs and loosely-laced social subtext. The back story on his main moniker, KAIL, is deep, with a side of dogma: "God gave it to me in a dream when I was 15," he proclaims matter-of-factly. "I have more nicknames than anyone I've ever met. My mother and father don't even call me the same thing."
Despite a momentous return to the stage, KAIL continues to flex his theatrical muscles, officiating as both director and writer for the recent remix of Broke Brothaz Be Quiet. The video, shot by John Fuentes and starring J Nat and Ratbastard, features the 'King of Aka's' on both sides of the camera, as he appears in a brief, smash-worthy cameo. Now that's a royal wrap!
