The Arcitype Drops "Bang Bang" Single Featuring Reks & Ruste Juxx!

5 years ago this month, September 25th 2012 to be exact, The Arcitype and Ruste Juxx released their collaborative album "V.I.C. Victorious Impervious Champions" on AR Classic Records / Duck Down Music. As a relative unknown in 2012, it was the Arcitype's most visible project and an introduction to the industry of hip hop.

"V.I.C." paired The Arcitype's musical sample free production with Juxx's Crown Heights charisma and street knowledge. The results took both artists into new territories with songs and videos for "Rock To The Rhythm" and "Stand Strong" as some of the most memorable.

Reflecting on that experience, The Arcitype had this to say:

"Ruste was one of the first people that heard something in me as a producer and gave me a shot. One song turned into a full album at our first session. I’ve put a whole lot of music out since then, but this was one of those moments where I can say someone took a chance in me, and I won’t ever forget it. Much love to all the fans this project earned me. I appreciate all the support you’ve shown me over the years. "

Now in celebration of the beginning, The Arcitype releases a brand new song with Ruste Juxx and Reks, "Bang Bang". Raw and unapologetic, "Bang Bang" features a melodic Reks hook, fire spiting Juxx verses and signature Arc knock! Five years later the duo is still making noise and reminding everyone how the phony are dealt with...

Rock (of Heltah Skeltah) Drops Debut Solo Album with Arcitype-Produced Title Track!

It took much longer than Rock ever expected, but at last, he has released a solo album.

The Heltah Skeltah member pays homage to his longtime friend and partner-in-rhyme, the late Sean Price, with Rockness A.P. (After Price).

Rock’s 14-track debut includes the very personal Arcitype-Produced title track, which details the ups and downs of his career as well as his inability to resolve old issues with Price. The Boot Camp Clik MC’s LP isn’t meant to be a gloomy experience though. There’s plenty of entertaining cuts featuring the likes of Raekwon, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Tek and Steele of Smif-N-Wessun, Buckshot, Ras Kass and M.O.P.

NEW MUSIC: JSwiss x Jared Evan - "Glass House" [prod. by The Arcitype]

Two of New York’s finest young talents, JSWISS and Jared Evan, connect on the soulful and meditative “Glass Case,” which is the second leak taken from Leedz Edutainment’s upcoming 'Eastern Standard' compilation.

Where Philly native Mega Ran dropped his hard-nosed head-nodder, “The East Coast,” as the project’s inaugural single, JSWISS and Evan kick back and get introspective on “Glass Case.” Despite being so different topically, there’s a connection between the two cuts, which is the strong production of The Arcitype.

For this track, The Arcitype supplies his collaborators with a melodic Boom bap canvas, which they definitely use to their advantage. JSWISS’ rhymes dive deep into the concept of being pigeonholed, both in art and in life, while Evan’s vocals evoke some emotional and inner turmoil. It’s a fresh turn for JSWISS especially, given that he just dropped a summer-ready new EP, No Music. Evan appears to be in the lab too, though, if his tweets are any indication. And if not, his fans have a lot to love on “Glass Case” (and here’s hoping he and JSWISS work together again!).

“Glass Case” is now available for stream and download through all major digital retailers. Stay on the lookout for 'Eastern Standard,' which is due out soon via Leedz Edutainment!
