After a long stay in Queens, NY, soaking up the energy and grittiness of the city and working with Joey Bada$$, the London-born musician is back in the UK. After several successful previous releases with KingUnderground Records, Lewis is now releasing a special treat for long-time fans.

Ghostface Killah – Shaky Dog.
Instrumental.

In a standout cut, dramatic horns and raw, soulful vocals form the foundation of the
instrumental version of legendary Wu-Tang member, Ghostface’s “Shaky Dog.” The original track is on the “Fish Scale” album, released on Def Jam in 2006.

Lewis Parker – Sunny Dedications

“Sunny Dedications” featured in instrumental form for the first time ever; is a classic beat taken from Parker’s seminal “It’s All Happening Now” album released in 2002 on Massive Attack’s Virgin imprint, Melankolic. The lush strings and hard drums still strike a chord over 15 years later.

As Parker continues to maintain his musical integrity and commitment to the traditional Hip-Hop aesthetic while simultaneously pushing his sound forward, KingUnderground brings a rare snapshot of the veteran producer’s cutting-room floor.
