Elmira’s Rome Clientel releases a new track titled “RVD.” The track, ironically (and quite unintentionally) released the day after Wrestlemania, finds Rome in his element, reflecting on his past and sizing up his future, delivering aggressive bars with his trademark gritty delivery. While initially recording this track over a beat that he produced himself, he decided that it fit better over an old 9th Wonder instrumental called “Dollar Circulate,” and so he re-recorded it.
The Elmira emcee recently inked a deal with Chaundon’s Golden Era Music label and is currently in the lab cooking up his debut LP, but until we get that, he’s dropped off this heater produced by Toronto’s Brown St. Beats.
A bonus track off of the physical version of Chaundon’s The Jammington album, which dropped in the summer of 2012, “Prison” is being released for free online to celebrate Rome’s recent signing to Chaundon’s Golden Era Music label. This is a small glimpse of what is to come in 2013 for both Rome and Chaundon.
The second video off Rome Clientel’s “The Empire 2: The Battlegrounds EP” is a tribute to the incredible season Redskins rookie QB Robert Griffin III is having. Rome, being an avid Redskins fan and one of the few people to own both a home and away RGIII jersey, had to show why Skins fans across the country “Betta Luv ‘Em.”
This is the first video off Rome Clientel’s latest release, The Empire 2: The Battlegrounds EP, which was sponsored by DJ Booth. The track was produced by Kount Fif (of the Swashbucklers/Man Bites Dog Records). Video shot and edited by Jeremiah Harvey.
I now present you the first single off The Empire: The Battlegrounds EP. We currently are shooting to release this project in about late October/early November. In the next day or two, I will send you the entire project mixed and mastered; I’d love your feedback and insight into whether you’d like to sponsor. More info on the first single, “Free,” is below:
Society is going to the dogs. In this rough economic climate, homelessness, unemployment, and despair is steadily increasing. The world is in the midst of a war, and on the Battlegrounds of life, Elmira MC Rome Clientel fires off the opening salvo. The ATG-produced single is a simple yet potent rallying cry: at the end of the day, we all want to be FREE.
The Empire: The Battlegrounds EP features production from ATG (Reks, Fashawn, Chaundon), Kount Fif (of the Swashbucklers/Man Bites Dog), The Gemstones (Chaundon’s production group), and Parks (Joe Budden). Features include Rav P, Alias, and Reks.
The track I present to you today is called “Troubled Child.” It is the first of four collaborations between Elmira MC Rome Clientel and NYC producer ATG (Produced a vast majority of Chaundon’s The Jammington, along with tracks for MCs like Reks and Fashawn) set to be released within the next month. Once again, this one is a leftover to hold fans over until the eventual release of The Empire: The Battlegrounds EP, which is currently in the process of being mixed down.
This is the latest release from Elmira MC Rome Clientel. The song, titled “Destroy & Rebuild” was produced by Rome himself. However, it will NOT be found on Rome’s upcoming project, The Empire: The Battlegrounds: It is instead yet another loose track to hold the fans over until it’s time to unveil the EP.
