DEAD PREZ: CONFIDENTIAL

KOCH RECORDS AND SOTTI RECORDS TO RELEASE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED
SOLO RECORD FROM DEAD PREZ'S M-1,
CONFIDENTIAL WILL BE RELEASED ON MARCH 21, 2006

New York, NY ─ KOCH Records and Sotti Records are proud to announce the release of M-1's debut solo effort, Confidential. The new album features Styles P, Q-Tip, K'Naan and Cassandra Wilson, among others, and will be released on March 21, 2006.

M-1 is best known for comprising half of dead prez; which has generated a fervent underground following and respect within the hip-hop community. Their notoriety is furthered by a reputation for dealing head-on with black power and politics in their music and everyday life.

Although M-1 is not leaving dead prez, he is releasing a solo project, titled: Confidential. This album reveals additional dimensions in M-1's own creativity, while remaining true to the empowering tenor that all have come to expect from M-1 and any dead prez affiliated project. With Confidential, M-1 has created a new platform, making it appealing for the current dead prez fan-base and new M-1 fans alike. In his own words (M-1 on Confidential:) "There's a definite theme, but it's not obvious - I didn't telegraph where I'm coming from; if you know... then you know."

M-1 has partnered up with famed jazz guitar player and producer Fabrizio Sotti's (Cassandra Wilson) Sotti Records and KOCH Records to release his debut solo LP, Confidential. M-1's intentions are clear, as he envisions Confidential as the next chapter in the book dead prez is writing with their career.

Nice to see the Dead Prez get a little love here. Go out an see Dave Chappelle's "Block Party" and see how the Prez brings it. Good to see such creativity in todays hip-hop.
