Mad Lion releases Predatah & Prey

Date Posted: 2000-07-21

MAD LION, the conquering king of Hip-Hop Reggae from the Tribe of Issachar is back with his new album, “Predatah & Prey!”

Born in London, raised in Jamaica and currently coming straight out of Flatbush, Brooklyn, he had all the essential ingredients for creating a sound of renown. His earliest music influences were divided evenly between the dance hall reggae of Supercat, Nicodemus and others, as well as the hardcore rhymes of KRS-One, Slick Rick and the early pioneers of rap. It was his big brother, Daddy Rick Star, the number-one reggae DJ in the Big Apple, who got him moving into the pros. But when it came to creating his own sound, he owes a debt to no one. Fueled early with the musical inspiration to blend Hip-Hop lyrics with Reggae rhythms, he used the money he made owning ice cream trucks and hot dog carts to produce his own records, starting his first label in the late '80s. By the time the '90s rolled around, he had earned himself a reputation as an underground force to be reckoned with - writing, recording, producing and distributing his music in and around the New York area. It was around this time that he first met KRS-One. The pair hit it off immediately, going on to cut the local hit "Shoot To Kill" and picking up distribution from an independent label, Nervous Records. After following up "Shoot To Kill" with "Take It Easy," he would go on to cut a string of smash hits under his own name, even while he produced and performed with such headliners as KRS-One, Notorious B.I.G., and others. By the time his second album - Ghetto Gold & Platinum Respect - was released in 1996, he had grown beyond the ability of a small indie label to properly promote and distribute his music. It wasn't too long after ...Platinum hit the streets that his homie KRS-One landed an A&R gig at Reprise Records and signed him. Recorded in various studios in California as well as his own Cipher Sound facility, Predatah Or Prey finds the master of Hip-Hop Reggae.
