“Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE”
So who are RHP? Well, they’re a hip-hop hybrid musical outfit that I first discovered while doing work for SLAMjamz back in the early 00s. As the story goes with a couple other blocSonic artists that you’ve come to know… I designed covers for a few of their digital releases. When I first heard them I was immediately impressed by their sound. It’s one that’s really hard to pin down because it’s so unique to them. However, their story goes back a little further. They first burst onto New York City’s live music scene in the late 1990s and have been compared to recording artists ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to “Weird” Al Yankovic. Their core members are producer/MC Phon-X (a.k.a. Headsnack), lyricist Shred Lexicon, and DJ Exfyl. Other members of the Regenerated Headpiece family include DJ Sykopath, producer/MC Old Yist, and various session musicians.
Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE is a re-release of their collection of rarities that included remixes by RHP friends and fam. For our Xtended Edition we also brought on blocSonic fam to remix a few joints! RHP also added a couple extra bonus cuts to make this a 3 Disc set!
