After 11 CunninLynguists projects, a side-group project and a slew of production credits under his belt, Kentucky’s favorite son Deacon The Villain finally unleashes his solo debut album, Peace or Power. 16 Tracks of pure unadulterated southern soul as only a triple-threat emcee/producer/singer can bring it to you. Featuring stellar guest appearances by Kno & Natti of CunninLynguists, Tonedeff, Homeboy Sandman, Tunji, Sheisty Khrist and more, this album is loaded with heady lyricism, spiritual mantras and positive vibes galore. And if that wasn’t enough, the production on this album (much of which is live instrumentation) is absolutely album-of-the-year worthy. What are are you waiting for? SPREAD THE WORD!! This album is to awesome to be ignored.


I'm just trying to make my art and do what's smart. Cake donuts are clutch.
