The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania duo of Crumb and JustTraxx better known as Dope Means are unveiling their debut LP “Government Funded” onto the world on 6-18-2013. The group is led by MC Crumb who joined the Army and was deployed to Iraq and recently returned to the States. Crumb used his paychecks from “Operation New Dawn 11-12” to fund this LP, which focuses on corruption, the politics of war and all aspects of life and their love of their home town Pittsburgh. Though not a political group, many of their songs focus on the current political climate and the effects they’ve had on their lives as both soldiers and civilians.
“Government Funded” features thirteen tracks and features guest appearances by Timbo King (Wu-Tang), Planet Asia, Reef the Lost Cauze and Ras Kass alongside production from C-Lance (JMT), Bronze Nazareth, Vherbal & Ziko. A&R’d by longtime Hip-Hop impresario M-Eighty (Wu-Tang / DPG / Undergods) fame, this LP represents the call of duty found within all mankind as delivered via raw lyricism and classic boom bap tales.
