|Virgin Music today announced the signing of hip-hop supergroup CZARFACE – Inspectah Deck (Wu-Tang Clan), Esoteric and 7L – to a global deal. “It’s an honor for all of us at Virgin Music to work with these legends to launch this exciting new project,” said Jacqueline Saturn, President of Virgin Music. “We are looking forward to giving music fans around the world a first listen to this incredible music soon.” "After years of carving our own path independently, fighting with everything we had in the tank, we're thankful to team up with a major force like Virgin,” said Esoteric. “This is Czarface finally meeting the Avengers, and we intend to work as one to amplify each other's superpowers." |
CZARFACE debuted with their self-titled album in 2013 though 7L, Esoteric and Inspectah Deck first worked together on the 12" single “Speaking Real Words” in 1999. The three continued to stay in touch, periodically working together and, in 2013, Esoteric approached Deck about a possible full-length project centered around a superhero character called “CZARFACE." What they thought would be a one time mixtape-type project has now seen multiple albums featuring collaborations with the likes of MF Doom, Ghostface Killah, Roc Marciano, Conway the Machine, Mayhem Lauren, Method Man, Action Bronson, Vinnie Paz, Frankie Pulitzer, GZA and more; contributions to the Marvel movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage; and hundreds of merch drops including limited edition comics, apparel, action figures, art, shoes, and more featuring artwork illustrated by Lamour Supreme.
Look for details on a new album from CZARFACE very soon.
