La Coka Nostra’s Slaine Set To Release Solo Album “A World With No Skies” On October 26th

La Coka Nostra’s Slaine Set To Release Solo Album “A World With No Skies” On October 26th

Boston rapper Slaine, of the rap super group, La Coka Nostra, has announced an October 26th release date for his upcoming debut solo album, “A World With No Skies”. The album will surface on Suburban Noize Records and is slated to feature guest appearances by Everlast, Cypress Hill’s B-Real, Vinnie Paz of Jedi Mind Tricks, and ILL BILL. Slaine is currently streaming material online at www.myspace.com/slainehiphop.

“Even though I started my career as a solo artist by hustling my ‘The White Man is the Devil’ mixtapes, I think people are more familiar with me from Special Teamz and La Coka Nostra,” commented Slaine. “With this album I set out to create a soundscape that brings you into my world as an individual which is a fucked up place to be. It is hard, dark and aggressive from the beats to the lyrics, and a deeply personal trip through my life and the things that made me who I am today. A ‘World With No Skies’ is a look into my psyche and a vision of my dreams, nightmares, and realities.”

Slaine will appear alongside Ben Affleck and Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) as bank robbers in the upcoming movie “The Town” featuring Jon Hamm (Mad Men). The film is scheduled to hit theaters across the country on September 17th, 2010, and the trailer can be seen online at this location >
