MOVE MERCHANTS are the hip-hop duo of Manchild and DJ Sean P. They’ve made two great albums together.
In their latest endeavor, Manchild and Sean P worked together for years and had no secrets except for one: Sean P kept a shoe box in the trunk of his Trans Am that he forbade Manchild from ever opening. But when Sean P was on his last record scratch—and with his blessing—Manchild opened the box and found an unfinished crocheted karate belt and $10,000 in cash.
“My friend dUSt, not from Mars ILL, told me that the secret to a happy working relationship was to never argue,” Sean P explained. “Instead, I should keep quiet and crochet a karate belt.”
Manchild was touched. Only one unfinished belt was in the box—that meant Sean had rarely been angry with him in many years. “But what about all this cash money?” Manchild asked.
“Oh,” Sean said, “that’s what I made from selling karate belts.”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MANCHILD AND DJ SEAN P DROP “MOVE MERCHANTS II” FOR FREE
Nearly seven years after making their first album together, the hip-hop duo of Manchild (Mars Ill, Deepspace5) and DJ Sean P, also known as Move Merchants, have done it again. This time it’s free.
The new album, “Move Merchants II”, has a 70’s action movie theme and contains 11 tracks. The guest appearances include Krum (Playdough, Deepspace5, Ill Harmonics), Jurny Big (Tunnel Rats), Elias (Scribbling Idiots, Dafuniks), and newcomer Le, from Austin, TX.
Since their last album, Manchild has spent less time on the mic to advance his professional career. In his own words, he’s “making collard greens, no really, I’m making collared greens”. DJ Sean P has been the full time DJ and co-producer for Krum, as well as producing, mastering and mentoring a number of other artists.
In a nod to DJ’s and producers, the instrumentals and acapellas are available on a second album with an alternate cover. “Everything the Move Merchants do is classic hip-hop,” said Krum, “I’ve been asking my parents for this album ever since it came out”.
“Move Merchants II” is now available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon. For a free copy, or to download the instrumentals and acapellas version, go to the Move Merchants website at http://www.movemerchants.com.
The free doesn’t stop there. The Move Merchants are also giving away their first album from seven years ago. Both albums were produced by phatmass.com for the people of earth.
