"If you are playing chess against Bigfoot, don't win. And for God's sake don't cheat." - Ancient Bluegrass-Hip-Hop proverb.
This year we get out to see so many fans in person as we storm across the country, and it started off strong with tours north to Canada and back in Feburary, and across the South and Midwest in April. Check it out:

Meanwhile, work has begun on the next Gangstagrass album. We are in the process of developing and recording new tracks. Rench recently brough Smif N Wessun into the studio to deliver a mind blowing special appearance on a new track. We are going to put some time in to make the hottest tracks ever and you can't rush that, so this monsterpiece will be cooking until the fall, when we unleash it on the world. Take a peek at some behind the scenes footage for the production of a new Gangstagrass video that will launch the first single:
