Production duo Krate Krusaders (1Step and Bad Habitz) teamed up with Elijah for what began as an exchange of beats and rhymes at the tail end of 2009, however this unique collaboration developed into a full blown studio album and is set to be one of the biggest UK hiphop releases of the year.
On the back of immense radio support across the hip hop fraternity, the label are launching the national ‘Before I Was Famous’ tour with a free London date at the Gramaphone in East London with support from DJ Mr Thing, DJ Snuff One, Kasha, Jai, Braydz & B-Mus Khalil, with a few other surprise guests expected on the night.
From the lead single ‘Doing My Damn Thing’, to straight hip hop bangers like ‘What I Am’, ‘Fuck It’ and ‘Keep Going’, the production & vocal delivery lend themselves to an era still regarded by many as the best times for the genre. Other soul-tinged cuts like ‘One Day’ and ‘Day Dream’ show Krate Krusaders can switch up the style while keeping a consistency in the overall musical scheme.
The album informs, entertains and impresses in equal measure, is a celebration of the best hip hop traditions, and is another benchmark release for these uniquely talented artists.
