VIOLATOR album sneak peak - June 25

As a Management Company, record label, and marketing group, Chris Lighty and Mona Scott have built an impressive multi-media entertainment conglomerate in Violator. And, most importantly, this empire has been created by the powerhouse duo without compromising their integrity, nor the integrity of hip-hop music and culture, the very thing that got the ball rolling over 10 years ago. Violator/AMG has successfully marketed hip-hop from the hood to Hollywood and back. But with music being the core of Violator's business, Lighty and Scott are currently back at the boards, executive producing VIOLATOR THE ALBUM: V2.0 alongside Violator Senior VP of A&R, Eric Nicks.

The 1999 release of VIOLATOR THE ALBUM marked an important step for Lighty and Scott's hip-hop empire, successfully branding the Violator name with the very best in urban music. The album's solid material debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart AT #8 and got America's attention enough to earn platinum status. VIOLATOR THE ALBUM's lead single "Vivrant Thing, quickly became a summer anthem on radio and dancefloors nationwide, rocketed up the charts to #1 and subsequently earned Grammy, Soul Train, and MTV Award nominations. Soon after, 6 more separate Violator artists' albums entered the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Now, with the July 24th release of VIOLATOR THE ALBUM: V2.0 (Violator Records/LOUD), this installment of the Violator saga promises to bring the heat, and then some.

With V2.0, superstar client Busta Rhymes' returns to the dancefloor bounce that fueled his hits "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See" and "Dangerous," collaborating with the ever-colorful Kelis on the Neptunes-produced "What It Is."." Noreaga also taps the ultra-hot Neptunes for the Tunnel-banger "Grimey." Fueling the fire, "Greatest Of All Time" LL Cool J keeps it street with Ruff Ryder beatsmith Swizz Beatz on the raucous "Throw Your Hands Up." Completing the coup, lyricist supreme Jadakiss joins Violator Prodigy of Mobb Deep in a true "must have" for any real hip-hop head.
