Having announced the growing 38-city “The Mink Coat Killa Tour” last week, Seventy 2 Music is now pleased to announce the release of JARREN BENTON’s new LP, the 90s inspired THE MINK COAT KILLA, for presale on June 1st. With the pre-order purchase, two (2) instant gratis tracks are available: “C.R.E.A.M. 17,” featuring Nick Grant and “AGAIN,” featuring Aleon Craft. The Mink Coat Killa is available in stores on June 23rd.
Jarren states, “The Mink Coat Killa is my self-inspired honorary Wu-Tang name and the album started out as a tribute album to the Wu-tang Clan but as I was making it and going through samples it became a tribute to the 90s period. I produced half the album going through the samples the WU used but instead of using them all out I flipped them and came up with a totally different 90s feel on some of the tracks.”
He continues, “I was raised in the 90s and I have always been inspired by that era and wanted to represent it well. That starts with the Wu. I am literally still the biggest fan of the 90s and the music is still in rotation in my car. When I started making this album I was at a point where I didn’t want to jump on the new wave and this project is me saying fk what’s on the radio now, I’m going to do what resonates with me.”
The first song from THE MINK COAT KILLA,”C.R.E.A.M. 17,” produced by JARREN and Spitzwell, is a tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan and it’s 1993 release of C.R.E.A.M. “C.R.E.A.M. 17” .
