ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Prepare for a high energy and hard hitting preview of the upcoming album "Warrior Poet King". For those who long for the classic Hip hop sound, and golden age lyricism, Agueybana X delivers in force! From the first sound of the ominous horns initiating a fast flurry of rhythm and rhymes in the first Track "El Tiburon", to the finale, an exclusive CDbaby remix of "The Ill Philosophy", Agueybana X unleashes his signature sound known as "Jibaro Soul" to a world hungry for classic Hip Hop.

The salsa influenced percussion over a wide variety of hard hitting Hip Hop drum kits, are reminiscent of the early sounds of Sugarhill Apache (Jump on it) with the lyrical style of golden age pioneers like Rakim or Big Daddy Kane. Agueybana X uses Native American spirituality in his slang and manages to kick a little knowledge while maintaining his abstract - flow driven wordplay and lyricism.

Topics range from the introspective word journey of "Jibaro Soul" which chronicles his frustrations with trying to get ahead as an artist, to the high-octane B-Boy party shaker "Aguamobagua (Sound the Horns) featuring fellow Bohio recording artist Mr. Ward. The monstrous imagery of "Aztec War Poetry" reintroduces his former alter ego "The Daddy Riddler" who returns in his new incarnation "Old Blind Warrior" (who had been chained away in darkness since the 2002 epic battle "Red Dawn -Daddy Riddler vrs Sensai Charley Cruz"). This song starts a dark new chapter of the newly evolved warrior; a chained beast and his vision to storm the very gates of heaven itself to quench his rage. and this is only part 1....

The Warrior EP is Agueybana X's first professional project since his hiatus from 2002-2014 and marks a turning point in his whole approach to what he does. Prior to the hiatus, Agueybana X, known then as "Decruz" from the Egyptian Empire/TFX days, had established a solid reputation in the Lehigh Valley with local classics like "Can U Really Blame Me?" and "Spoken like a Genius". (Available for streaming on Sound Cloud) The Egyptian Empire, led by DJ Quan Tut, enjoyed success at the local colleges in the Lehigh Valley, as well as a regular on WLVR radio.

The opening line in "The Ill Philosophy" sums up his goals, "True warriors are the ones who are willing to step up and be the change they wish to see in the world." Its one thing to complain about the state of hip hop, but its another to go out there and create the kind of music you feel needs to be out there. Agueybana X doesn't mince words, nor does he hold back about how he feels about the rap industry. This is grown folks music, for those with remember the golden age of Hip Hop. Enjoy!!!
