Mr. Lif released this 8 track project today along with the following statement on Facebook:
“As years have passed, Emergency Rations has proven to be one of those projects that people mention to me time and time again. Whether it’s the closing track “Phantom” produced by EL-P, “Heavy Artillery” produced by Edan, or “Jugular Vein” produced by yours truly, I find myself often engaged in conversations about this EP with people whom it has touched.
Today, I am glad to be able to offer the entire Emergency Rations EP (with read along lyrics on select songs) as a “Name Your Price” download through Bandcamp.
The financial votes you’ve given me through the purchase of my music over the years have allowed me to stay in this business & advance my passion for the process of making music. I use the word “vote” because you have indeed voted to keep my brand of hip hop alive by supporting it.
17 years into my journey, I couldn’t be happier to report to you that I feel as passionate and inspired as I’ve ever been about songwriting, recording, production, & touring. In fact, I might be at the height of my love for the entire process. None of this would be possible without your support.
As we are on the verge of diving into the several albums and EP’s I’ve made over the last few years, I feel it’s only right to take a good old fashioned stroll down memory lane.
With no further adieu, I present to you, Emergency Rations.”
