Album Notes

In reviews of their first two albums, Rat Race Vacation and Dogfight, New York City’s Regenerated Headpiece (or RHP) was described as everything from “old school” to “futuristic”, and compared to recording artists ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to “Weird” Al Yankovic. But perhaps said it best when, in their favorable review of Rat Race Vacation, they wrote: “Regenerated Headpiece brings a style of lyrics and beats that doesn't sound a whole lot like anything else.”

RHP’s unique music has captured worldwide attention, garnering reviews and interviews in five languages. Rat Race Vacation was released to encouraging notices from magazines like Vice, Elemental, Hip Hop Connection (UK) and Insomniac, while Dogfight was named one of the year’s top 10 albums by New York Newsday and received praise from magazines like Future Music (UK) and Smooth. It also caught the ear of writer Robert Lanham who, in his bestseller The Hipster Handbook, listed RHP as a “Newer Band Kicking Some Ass This Decade” alongside acts like EL-P and RJD2.

Now Regenerated Headpiece is proud to announce the release of their third album, The New Animal. This 14-song album displays RHP at their very best, with songs that vary from serious to the absurd, traditional to experimental and back again. And, as a special bonus, The New Animal includes two songs featuring their old friend and supporter of many years, the legendary Chuck D of Public Enemy.

After publicly praising “Elements” as one of his favorite songs in a national magazine column, Chuck D licensed 8 RHP songs for digital release on his Slamjamz label. When Public Enemy’s Revolverlution World Tour came to The World Times Square, Chuck asked RHP to open up the show. And now, with the release of The New Animal, Chuck has honored RHP with his collaboration.

Regenerated Headpiece’s music has been licensed to Bomb Hip Hop Records, Slamjamz Records, Kaiju Big Battel, The Independent Film Channel, Graffiti Verite, DJ Lord (of Public Enemy), Lickwood Labs, and was most recently selected by super-producer Just Blaze (Jay-Z, Kanye West) to appear on the nationally released compilation album, Fresh Cuts: Volume 3.

Regenerated Headpiece has also done an impressive number of live performances and has been fortunate enough to open up for such notable acts as legendary DJ/producer Prince Paul (Stetsasonic, De La Soul, Gravediggaz), Mixmaster Mike (Beastie Boys), Dilated Peoples, Blackalicious, The Sound of Urchin, Arsonists, and many of the finest groups of the hip hop underground.

New millenium rap music
Usually I don't know all the songs by title cause I got it through itunes and I don't look, so I'll do my best. The album begins very futuristically with synthesizer sounds and drums. I like the record scatching and the samples of themselves on previous songs strategically placed in the intro. All in all it's very professionally done. Shred Lexicon and Phonx a lot of times go back and forth with their rhyming and I like that. It's very Kid N' Play and Salt N' Pepa of the new millenium. I like the fact that RHP brings creativity to an art form that needs creativity. The references on the album are good. I like the fact that RHP tries to say something. Sometimes I follow and sometimes I don't. "Keynote Address", "Shift A Vice", "Who is Dr. Cube?", the ass song at the end, are some of my favorites. RHP can get explicit if they want to, but they like to "crack heads open and make omelettes" more times than not. RHP can be compared to 3rd Bass amd De La Soul cause of the originality and the interludes and the way the album is produced. Most of the time when I listen I smile.

Just what the dr. ordered!
RHP is back in full form with their most cohesive, mind-blowing album to date. I'm really impressed on how they've elevated in terms of production and catchy hooks. If you don't own this yet, buy it now, you won't be disappointed.


When does the tour start?
Such a unique sound! Track 5 is one of my favs...Sandwiches is a fun song...Inside the Museums is really trippy...the horns mixed into the background of Twist is a cool, funky touch. There's something for everyone on this CD, so try it out!


Mike Foam is my grandfather....
The shit was dope.. New level of dope.. I have Dogfight and Rat Race but this is a new plateau for hip hop...
