Depth Charge Studios is proud to announce the release of Wais P’s new full length project, “SUNOVA,” on Every Hood Records. The album was produced entirely by our production affiliate, Team Demo and features guest appearances from heavyweights Sauce Money, Nitty Scott, Termanology, Fame (M.O.P.) and Yogi. Much of the vocals were recorded, and the entire project mixed and mastered, by our CEO, Mister Wise in Depth Charge’s Studio A. “SUNOVA” is available on all streaming platforms but if you’re a Spotify user, here is an embed… Enjoy!
When Donald Trump won the presidential election this past November, one of the few things people found solace in was that it would lead to some seriously great art. Enter rapper-producer Mister Wise’s “The Man of Orange,” a wonderfully biting and potent wrap up of everything that makes its target so infuriating.
If you’ve been following the Alexandria, VA-based artist on Twitter (do it, @iammisterwise), you likely picked up on his disdain of Trump and were likely expecting a musical protest of some sort. It arrives today in the form of “The Man of Orange,” which throws relentless verbal darts at the president-elect over his spewing of hatred and misinformation.
And it does so from a unique angle, because Wise uses a (clearly tongue-in-cheek) first-person perspective on the track. The approach allows the listener to really hear just how callous Trump’s words have been over Wise’s own menacing instrumental. If his work sounds at all familiar, chances are you’ve heard his music as a member of Team Demo—they have worked with the likes of 50 Cent, Sean Price, Illa Ghee, and Kurious, among others.
“The Man of Orange” becomes available this Friday, inauguration day, through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms, but can be streamed right now in its entirety, courtesy of SoundCloud. Hit that play button, and pray for our country.
When he isn’t producing head knodding hip hop with his crew Team Demo (50 Cent, Sean Price, Obie Trice etc.,) or recording, mixing and mastering for countless artists at Depth Charge Studios, Mister Wise is busy making uniquely creative records as a soloist. His latest single, “If They Don’t Hear Us Now,” fuses rock, reggae and hip hop into a call to arms against the greed and corruption of the rich and powerful.
After the overwhelming response to our mash up projects, “Journey with Nas,” and “Notorious White,” Team Demo jumped back into Depth Charge Studios to re-produce, “Notorious Hayes,” – with beats derived from Issac Hayes and vocals from Notorious B.I.G. As you probably already know, Biggie’s vocals are quite explicit so parental discretion is advised. Enjoy!
