NEW MUSIC: Tragedy Khadafi ft Havoc and BDvine - Stacked Aces


On 9-28-2018, the legendary Tragedy Khadafi returns with a new project, The Builders, and today, he releases the first single, “Stacked Aces,” featuring his QB brethren Havoc and B.Dvine.

With a career that started all the way back in 1985, Tragedy is indeed considered one of the founders of NY hip hop having played a critical role in the discovery of artists such as Mobb Deep, Cormega, Capone-N-Noreaga and more!

His early work such as his debut, Intelligent Hoodlum, (which was produced by Marley marl and Large Professor) and his sophomore effort, Tragedy, were brilliant projects which spawned and greatly influenced the QB artists that would eventually rise to prominence; Cormega, Mobb Deep, Nas and Capone N Noreaga (some of which he played an integral role in not only their ascension, but also as a key contributor to their sound.

Trag’s third album, Against All Odds, was scheduled for release in 1999, but conflict with his label stalled the release; though it was finally released in 2001, Stints of incarceration stalled his artistic output until he released Blood Ballads and Thug Matrix in 2006; all of which were met with overwhelming press reception. Shortly after those releases, Tragedy was once again sentenced to four years in prison and eventually released in 2010. His critically acclaimed documentary, Tragedy: The Story Of Queensbridge vividly details his life and struggles; born into extreme poverty and drug infested upbringing.

New links: CUBAN PETE - RENAISSANCE MAN - Mixtape stream/download


The Renaissance Man mixtape has been doing great and is now available at the main online stores/apps. And still at www.c75live.com of course.
You can stream, download, and add it to your playlists at:
Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal, Apple Music/iTunes, and Deezer. It will also be available soon on iHeart Radio and Pandora.


The title takes its name from Cuban's first interview proper by DJ Iceman for Rhyme Junkie but may also have been subconsciously influenced by Hell Razah (who did a project called Renaissance Child), the head of GGO of which Cuban is part of. Which is how Razah came to do the intro for the project.

Some people have already referred to it as AOTY so take a listen and decide for yourself. Whatever you think of it there is no denying it's a strong project with no skipping.


Each track has separate artwork (included in the download from the C75 Live bandcamp site only) so that each artist and track gets the shine it deserves.

Physicals are available on CD and are limited edition with only 75 being produced.

NARC. Magazine posts Renaissance Man breakdown by Cuban Pete

http://narcmagazine.com/feature-renaissance-man-more-than-a-mixtape-a-track-by-track-walk-through-by-cuban-pete/

NARC. Magazine reports on artists local to the North East of England and is available in hard copy and online.
Recently a track by track breakdown of his Renaissance Man mixtape by Cuban Pete was posted to their website.

In the article Cuban goes through each of the 21 tracks on the mixtape breaking down the intentions of the tracks, who worked on them, and his relationships to them.

It's an interesting read that shows how organic the project is in the way it came together, as opposed to artists that just throw money out for features and beats to get known.

Check out the article HERE

And stream/download/order physicals of the Renaissance Man mixtape HERE


Don't forget there are hard copies available on CD,
limited to 75 copies so be quick!
