Legendary Boston MC, Mr. Lif has signed a multi-album deal with Mello Music Group for 2016 and 2017.
His first new album with Mello Music Group will be released early 2016 but to hold fans over, Mello Music Group will reissue his classic album I Phantom on November 27th. I Phantom showcases production from El-P, Edan, Insight, DJ Fakts One and NASA. The album also features Aesop Rock, Jean Grae and Acrobatik.
“It was a very intentional decision to remain unsigned by any record label until I was absolutely ready. That personal journey spanned from 2007 to 2015. I needed to step back and gain perspective on a great many things. I waited the right amount of time. I grew. I recorded an abundance of new material over the years, found the right record label, and now it’s time to come back and start round two of my career.” -Mr. Lif
