A New Name, New Style and New Album By Phoenix MC Penny The Great
(PHOENIX, AZ) – What's in a name? Apparently, everything. The rap artist formerly known as MC Pennywise, of the famed AZ hip-hop collective WRITERS GUILD (www.writersguildmusic.com) is preparing to release his 2nd album with a whole new name and outlook.
“The name 'Pennywise' was given to me during my time in the streets,'” Penny The Great says. “No disrespect to the band Pennywise, but I hadn't even heard of them. I was always very thrifty with a dollar coming up, and I never took what little I had for granted. Even with the name change, the Penny had to remain so I would never lose sight of that.”
Penny The Great's new album “You Can All Die Now” combines hard street beats with melodic vibes and airtight flow, showcasing Penny's diverse upbringing and influences, as Puerto-Rican MC born in the Bronx, NYC, and spending his adult life in the Southwest, through Texas and Arizona.
“I come from a land of greatness,” says Penny, referring to his birthplace, which is the home of so many standout rappers from KRS-One to Fat Joe and the late Big Pun. “This new album is gonna show everybody where I've come from and where I'm going.”
“You Can All Die Now” features production from Slopfunkdust (Beat Fanatic/RappersIKnow), Arza, Hexsagon and many more. Guest artists on the project include Writers Guild members RoQy TyRaiD, Mr. Miranda and Random, aka Mega Ran, and AZ standout Kaliq and several talented MCs and singers.
“You Can All Die Now” will release on October 31, 2014 on iTunes and all major retailers worldwide. The video for “Hotboxin'” will debut soon.
