Hip Hop is the stage for elemental skills of the emcee and producer to come together, shine and thrive. This creative arena where both the super emcee and the super producer battle for respect while inflicting musical and lyrical damage to the microphone, the speakers, and most importantly the mind and ears of the hip hop fan. This worldwide and often underground stage has also witnessed extraordinary moments when a super talented emcee and dope producer come together to join forces and the result is a musical dynamic that cannot be duplicated when one is apart from the other. Recall emcee/producer hip hop duo juggernauts like Eric B. & Rakim, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, and DJ Premier and Guru. These classic collaborations created not only unparralleled hip hop classics but achieved a level of quality, coolness and cohesiveness that has almost disappeared from Hip Hop. Now the stars have aligned to allow another super collaboration between emcee and producer- behold as we present to you MOE POPE and HEADNODIC as MEGAPHONE... a welcome return to the producer + emcee combinatins brings back two former members of the group Mission:, the same Boston/ Bay Area group that had at once brought us the highly praised hip hop album 'One'. Mission, now known as Crown City Rockers. Now, as Megaphone, Headnodic's buttery fresh pound-for-pound heavyweight sound production is matched with Moe Pope's revolutionary-punk-rock-on-static vocals and so the latest hip hop producer/emcee duo emerges. NatAural High Re3cords welcomes the latest and rawest return of the producer/emcee combination that will produce a new set of Hip Hop classics for a new generation of Hip Hop Fans.

This album is amazing!!! Yep, it's that good, released last year and largely slept on, this gem will be classed as a classic in the years to come. When you have the combination of 1 producer and 1 MC, it makes for a more complete album and like other greats before them, Eric. B & Rakim, Pete Rock & CL Smooth etc... Moe Pope & producer Headnodic have crafted a hip hop album that'll stand the test of time over the years, this album takes you back to the golden age while still having an updated sound for the new school heads. Moe Pope is a dope MC, with a supa flow that just gets you hyped everytime he's spittin', then you have Headnodic who perfectly complements Moe's style with some truly mesmerising beats, the chemistry between these two is obviously there for all to see. Definitely check this album out, buy it if you like it, you will not be disappointed!
