South Carolina bred Hip Hop lyricist Spectac returns after a long three year hiatus with For The People, an album of all new material produced by DJ Shakim.
Long-time Spectac fans can look forward to a more aggressive Spectac as he tackles recent issues surrounding politics, relationships, and other relevant subject matter. Production-wise, For The People is producer Shakim’s first official effort… though it would be hard to tell as the veteran deejay has a keen ear for soulful samples and displays impeccable drum work.
In celebration of today’s album release, we are giving fans a free download of the title track “For The People!”, which is a much softer side of Spectac & Shakim than the album’s first single “Moment of Truth“.
Spectac & Shakim recruit Skyzoo, Sha, Senior Kaos & Warren Wint for an ill posse cut over a James Brown loop / sample. Off Spectac & Shakim’s upcoming For the People due out Feb 19th on HiPNOTT Records. You can pre-order on iTunes and/or CD. What up Kev?
After recently peaking at #1 on both the college/indy radio Rap Attack and Record Breaker charts with his single “From The Soul”, Amiri teams up with his partner in rhyme Spectac for the third single off his sophomore album, Vinyl Ritchie.
Always nice to hear some new King Asiatic Nobody’s Equal.
Now available for free download is the first single “One Day” Remix from Spectac featuring Big Daddy Kane & Kofi. The single is produced by K-Hill and is taken from Spectac’s new album “Looks Like Another Job For Spectac” out now on Domination Recordings

In anticipation of their project Almost Famous, HiPNOTT Records and the dopehouse will release an as-yet-untitled mixtape at the end of the month, mixed by DJ Mark-1, spiked with cuts from Khrysis and will showcase Spectac and Amiri classics, unreleased material, and tracks with Big Daddy Kane, 9th Wonder, Little Brother and other Justus League members.
Kevin dropped off these two previously unreleased gems from Spectac’s The Corner of Spec & 9th Spectac Starring as Superman for a Day, Clark Kent for Life. After some digging, I found the entire album on his site as well, so I’ve taken the liberty of swacking that link as well.
