Fort Knox Five – Radio Free DC

The album opens with a straight up old school party jam, ‘Insight,’ featuring Asheru, from the underground hip-hop group the Unspoken Heard. Asheru’s intelligent rhymes set the tone for the record “… music with a meaning, party with a purpose, being smart with the art makes the average folk nervous…” Long time co-conspirator, Mustafa Akbar, then takes center stage on the album’s unifying anthem, ‘Funk 4 Peace.’ Showcasing their indie rock roots with a heavy dose of Funk and Soul, the Fort Knox Five enlist Ian Svenonius (from DC Hardcore’s Nation of Ulysses and The Make Up) to proclaim step-by-step instructions on ‘How to Start a Band’. Venturing deep into the heart of DC’s Jamaican Underground, the Fort Knox Five collaborate with Rootz and Zeebo from See-I, as well as the unrivaled, mic-specialist, Sleepy Wonder to deliver three of the album’s ragga fueled future classics, ‘Killa Sound Boy,’ ‘The Wonder Strikes Again’ and ‘Not Gonna Take It’.
