On January 23rd, Man Bites Dog will celebrate their first release of the year with Wais P’s PV$$Y RICH mixtape, a free offering that includes features from Action Bronson, Devin The Dude, and more that will serve as a prelude to Wais’ official Man Bites Dog debut, Pimpin Saved My Life, out this March. Next, on January 29th, will be Vast Aire’s A Space Iliad EP, a collection of B-sides and remixes held over from his OX 2010: A Space Odyssey, that includes features from Sadat X, Guilty Simpson, C-Rayz Walz, and more.
Moving into February, Man Bites Dog is excited to introduce fans to one of their newest signees, Philadelphia rapper Curly Castro, who will release the free album Fidel, and the label will close the month with another free release from one of the label’s freshest faces, Hayze, who will release his Smoker’s Section mixtape. March will see the release of Paper, Piff & Polo, a collaborative album from super producer Harry Fraud and up-and-coming rapper Eddie B, while April will cap off the spring schedule with two of the label’s biggest releases of the year. Up first will be Illogic & Blockhead’s Capture The Sun, followed by Roc Marciano’s first ever producer album, Marci Beaucoup.
