Samurai Shin is a manga written by Mikel Miles. We’ve been doing some promo for them as of late, but today we finally have the release of “The Prelude” EP. We’ve released a couple joints from the record already but it features heavyweights like Torae, Metaphor The Great and others on the mic. This EP harkens back to the times of Samurai Champloo where Nujabees, Fat Jon, DJ Tsutchie and Force of Nature came together to provide in my opinion one of the best soundtracks known to man. I digress, “The Prelude” EP is filled with lyrical and instrumental cuts guaranteed to take you in a time machine back to the Champloo days.
