All of our Country’s Chatter readers know that I am not a fan of country/rap, southern/rap, rock/rap, or any other kind of rap. but that’s okay. A lot of our readers are fans, and when we get news we think they will want to know, we are more than happy to share it with them. Today we received a press release about a new album form the group I4NI. Surprisingly, we usually find a little something we like about every ‘rap’ album we listen to. But, we really aren’t what you would call fans. (Unless you’re talking about Colt Ford. We love watching Colt on stage, and get to every show we can). So for those of you who will enjoy this album, and I know there are a lot of you out there – below is your press release.
Muscle Car, the long-awaited EP from Southern Rock/Rap group, I4NI, will be released March 4, 2016. Pre-order the new EP on iTunes and instantly receive, “How We Roll,” featuring The LACS, Moonshine Bandits, Bubba Sparxxx, Redneck Souljers, Demun Jones and J Rosevelt.
“‘Muscle Car is us. It gives our music an identity,” said I4NI’s D’ Ray (David Ray). “We’re Muscle Car guys, the shop guys, that’s us. The new EP has a little bit more of a masculine sound to it, edgy but Southern Rock sounding.”
Raised on the inner-city streets of East Nashville, I4NI’s lyrics tell of a life not seen through rose-colored glasses and how it’s possible to rise above the odds and lead a meaningful life. The authenticity of their music resonates with both lower and middle class fans and has become a motivating force in the community. I4NI was founded in 1996 and originated under the name CWB, or “crazy white boys.”
Both members of I4NI, D’ Ray and Stump (Robbie Phillips), and producer/singer Jon Conner, were involved in writing of all of the songs from Muscle Car (along with songwriter Danny Richardson). Bubba Sparxxx is a frequent collaborator with the band and often joins the duo on the road.
