The Urban Renewal Project continue their multimedia series, Pᴏssᴇ Cᴏᴍɪᴛᴀᴛᴠs, with the hip-hop flavoured single, “Will to Survive” (feat Vic Mensa). For those new to the group, they deliver juicy jazz-infused underground hip-hop with period instruments from the ancient Mediterranean.
According to a recent press release, “this 7-inch release comes packaged with an original 20-page manga chronicling the adventures of a young recruit from North Africa in the Roman Legion, illustrated by the team at Saturday AM.”
Commenting on the recording, member R.W. shares, “We drew a lot of inspiration from the fact that we’ve been in survival mode for the past year, just trying to make it through everything in one piece, and that sentiment tied together really nicely with the themes I found myself exploring with these historical military instruments.”
The album was available exclusively on June 12th for Record Store Day and is set to drop digitally on July 23rd via Monster Entertainment/Empire/Redeye Worldwide.
