The Impossebulls “Made by History (Decade One: 2000-2010)”

Thirteen years ago, if you were to tell me that I’d be running a music label now and releasing an album by a rap squad featuring Public Enemy’s legendary Chuck D among its ranks, I’d tell you to go write a book, ‘cause you’ve got one hell of an imagination! Thirteen years ago, I was still in art school and blocSonic wasn’t even a kernel of an idea yet. At the same time The Impossebulls began as a group of international Public Enemy fans joining forces with the Hard Rhymer himself, Mr. Chuck D, fellow PE member Professor Griff and long time PE collaborator Kyle Jason on a song railing against the major music industry entitled “We Don’t Need You”. At that point in time, the internet was still such a new entity that never before had a major music artist virtually collaborated with a group of fans. Actually… never before had a rap squad virtually collaborated, period. Thus, The Immpossebulls became the first virtual rap squad to collaborate online and distribute their music digitally.

Fast forward to today and you find that over the subsequent years The Impossebulls released music via Chuck D’s SLAMjamz and are still doing their thing. You’ll also find that members of the squad have made their way to this humble label, blocSonic, which began its story in 2007. If you’re familiar with blocSonic already, you might be familiar with names such as C-Doc, LOWdown (C-Doc and Tirade), Marcus J, DJ Def Chad & DJ President Ike who’ve already made their mark here on releases by C-Doc & LOWdown. They now all return as part of their core unit, The Impossebulls.

So who are The Impossebulls? The ‘Bulls are Marcus J, Tirade, Chuck D, DJ President Ike, DJ Def Chad, C-Doc, Mportd Flows(who we’ll hear more from later this year), Kyle Jason, 2DN, Pvt Militant, Jeff 10 as Bigg Jimm Slaade, Xeno, Dels Digglah & Wildman Steve. Over the years, they’ve developed a rich body of work that this retrospective does a great job of shining a light on. With blocSonic as a partner to help them get their incredible hip-hop music out to the world, they’re ready to continue to bring you the REAL. Get to know some of what they’ve already done and get ready for what they’re going to do! For a group who began it’s existance with a song that was in fact a big F*CK YOU to the major music industry, it only seems appropriate that they’ve made their way to a label that exists as an antithesis to that bloated, sleazy, music-product pumping industry.

Thank you to Chuck D, without whom the ‘Bulls wouldn’t exist! Thank you to the ‘Bulls for being a part of what blocSonic’s doing! It’s truly an honor to be able to help you get your music out to our listeners.

Of course, as always, thanks to YOU for continuing to return to blocSonic and listening to what we’ve got for you. If this is your first time here… extra thanks to you for giving us a shot! I hope you continue to return. If you dig what you hear, be sure to support the artists however you can. Please, also spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!
