The group East Coast Avengers was created in 2008 by MCs Esoteric, trademarc and DJ/producer DC The MIDI Alien. Having dealt with almost 8 politically corrupt years of the Bush regime, the three banded together and the result was the controversial yet socially aware ‘Prison Planet’ album full of gritty production and razor sharp lyricism. The lead single and video, “Kill Bill O’Reilly” sparked a national outrage, getting the group’s visuals banned from myspace and youtube and even gaining them notoriety on Keith Olberman’s “Countdown” on MSNBC.
Fast forward a couple years and we have a new president in office, various ‘natural disasters’, chaos at the border and poverty and unemployment at alarming levels nationwide. Naturally the Avengers are called back into action. This time around they are armed with hip hop royalty from across the country. Joining the efforts of Esoteric and trademarc over DC’s matured, apocalyptic sonic onslaughts areVinnie Paz, Slaine, Blaq Poet, Termanology, Big Shug, Jon Hope, REKS, Reef The Lost Cauze, Outerspace, Akir and many more.
East Coast Avengers Present: DC The MIDI Alien Avengers Airwaves will be available on 2-15-2011 (Brick Records).
Here is the LP’s lead-single “Man Made Ways” from DC The MIDI Alien f/Vinnie Paz, Slaine, Sabac Red & trademarc
