RA Scion is Victor Shade


BE ON THE LOOKOUT:
Looks as though MTK will be working with RA Scion for a digital release EP entitled RA Scion is Victor Shade. Looks as though it's still developing and we'll be sure to report back as further details arise. In the meantime, you can get a sense of how the project will shape up and the direction it's to be headed in with words from MTK himself below.

Ra Scion and I are cooking up a Digital EP together titled "Ra Scion is Viktor Shade", produced entirely by myself, MTK. I'm extremely excited about this project, because as a producer coming into a project where the fans are familiar with the emcee as part of a duo with an extremely defined sound, it gives me the opportunity to go into left field...

I like the excitement that's behind the project as well. As artists and producers continue creating, it encourages all to really bring quality music to the forefront. You can tell that MTK is gunnin for the number one spot through friendly competition.
It's step your game up time around the 206 and I'm looking to eat everybody who sleeps in this town's lunch (In the nicest, most chivalrous way possible). If I achieve it or not is irrelevant, but I'll give 140%. It's also an excellent opportunity for us to jump out of our shells into a project that's going to be completely different than what either of us have done. We're thinking of several different guests right now, but nothing is set in stone. Be on the lookout for this project in Spring or early summer.

@REALGARYPAYTON is on Twitter

I just started following Gary Payton on Twitter after seein him correspond with the homie Mark Pimentel of NDND. Soon after I get the above message. Forgot that there was an album with B-Ball's Best Kept Secret that The Glove was on. Ironically enough, Shaq is on this 1994 release. Check the song below.
With all the attention that Shaq received last month with his meet-up with two cats because of Twitter, it'll be fun to see how one of the NBA's trashiest trash talker gets it in online.
