OTO album released
- New York, NY (March 4, 2003)
- Marking the new company’s first official album release, bowery.com has released the Ghetto Government’s first album.
Ghetto Government is a new group comprised of seven members, Nitty, Walah, Crane, O-Negative, Tabasco, Dras, and Steelz. Hailing from New York, the new group brings a unique view of life and the future to the art of hiphop.
“Nitty has put together an incredible group around the concept of Ghetto Government,” says Marc Lindahl, executive producer and president of bowery.com. ”He has a deep philosophy about who really runs the Ghetto – from the City, State, and Fed, to the Gangs, Thugs, crooked cops, abusive store owners – there are a lot of rules and laws to follow, and the average resident does not control his own destiny.”
“This album is a concept album.” states Nitty, the president of the Ghetto Gov. “It’s designed to transport you from wherever you’re at – angry, young, and black, or just partying and not thinking about your future, and deliver you with an idea of the reality of your situation, but with hope and unity for the future.”
The album will be available initially on bowery.com’s website store. The company is currently seeking wider distribution.
