Looptroop Rockers Bringing Their Euro Hip Hop To The US
Good Things features some of underground hip-hopís most influential artists such as Timbuktu, Mapai, and the legendary Rakaa Iriscience of Dilated People. This new collection of songs characteristically displays the groupís ever-expanding musical explorations to their message laden lyrical depth. Good Things is expected to be an all-star debut into the United States by the European heavy hitters.
As forerunners of the budding independent movement, Looptroop Rockers began releasing their own records in 1996. In 2000, the release of Modern Day City Symphony solidified their position as the new kings of European underground.
The Looptroop Rockers have previously released three albums on Burning Heart Records, which have made high entries in the Swedish sales charts. They have toured Europe extensively, appeared at some of the continentís biggest festivals, and have also managed international tours to Asia, Australia, and North America. The Looptroop Rockers have toured with names such as Xzibit, Atmosphere, and the International Noise Conspiracy and are presently featured on CunninLynguistsí Strange Journey Volume One. Ready to bring their hip-hop styles across the pond once again, the group is presently planning a United States tour in the late fall.
