The 1935 image taken from the infamous Max Baer vs Joe Louis personifies the first full length release from Down For The Count Records. A surprise attack from the newly formed crew consisting of Dazed, Mol1, Sinks, Sparts and Force, Down For The Count is overflowing with a passion, drive and respect for the genre that lately seems to have gone to the wayside.


Sixteen tracks deep and featuring in house production from Dazed combined with heaters from B Wiv, Chris Labs, Double Digits, Shroomz, Alabama, Bipola, Rotten Produce, Flash Forest and Chris Labs has allowed each emcee to craft a variety of styles and topics throughout the album. With this combination of artists the album is varied yet still maintains a very concise and complete approach with a common but simple goal in mind, to make something that people want to listen to. 
So get ready, because this is just the beginning.

“Those who witnessed the fight in effect watched the torch being passed from the old style puncher to the emerging modern warrior. Louis’ defense was liquid smooth, his punches rattlesnake quick.”
