Saturday Morning Cartoon (Nitro Fresh and Jonnie Storm) reached far and wide for this remix album. 23 artists from 13 different countries contributed to Toy In The Cereal Box, a compilation assembled using vocal tracks from SMC’s debut, Cereal Box Superheroes, which you can grab here.
Fresh off their debut album, Cereal Box Superheroes, Saturday Morning Cartoon and 206UP.COM bring you the exclusive premier of the crew’s new single, “Run & Tell Dat.”
Blending new and classic styles, this posse cut connects dots between Northwest hip-hop artists Jonnie Storm and Nitro Fresh of SMC and the venerable flows of veteran MC’s Silver Shadow D, Dee.aLe and DeRoxs. As Nitro himself tells it:
Silver Shadow D, Dee.aLe (DMS) and DeRoxs (Wolfpakk) are like brothers. As you can hear lyrics by Silv, they have been knowing each other for nearly 20 years. But, according to Silv, this song is actually the first song he had ever recorded with Dee.aLe. Jonnie had known these guys when he used to be known as Jon Doe, at the freestyle ciphers, shows, etc. I, personally, got a chance to first meet Silver Shadow D and Dee.aLe at RC tha Trackaholiq’s CD release party. I was mesmerized by their energy on stage, and immediately decided to work with them. I met DeRoxs about 2 years ago, at the show. I gave him my beat CD, and about a year later he contacted me, saying he wanted to work with me for his upcoming album. Now, his upcoming album “Checkmate” is due June/July 2011, produced by myself, Silver Shadow D, and few others. It was truly my pleasure to have all these veteran MCs on one of my tracks.
