Funke Man from Lords of the Underground says, „Hip hop ain’t dead it just ain’t being made.“ The new record showcases single after single. From „I Love Hip-Hop,“ „The Clinic“ and „What Is An MC“… the record features soulful rap combined with ghetto power that will get you on your feet! „The Clinic“ is the answer to the hit song from Nas, „Hip-Hop is dead.“ It’s the Lords of the Underground’s attempt to revive the cultural Hip-Hop trend. „I Love Hip-Hop“ is for diehard fans. The song showcases LOTUG’s vibrant originality.
LOTUG has been touring Europe for over 8 years. They’ve showed the other side of the world what Hip-Hop really represents. Now it’s America’s turn to take the ride. Their first single „I Love Hip-Hop“ is old school meets new school with a twist.
