New York's bad brothers were on schedule to release 'Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1' in September of 2009, when news hit that Yauch had been diagnosed with cancer in his lymph node. They put everything on hold while he underwent treatment and announced that 'Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1' had been shelved in favor for 'Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2' this past October.
The album will feature guestspots from both Nas and Santigold and sports the Esco-supported 'Too Many Rappers' as a lead single. That track hit the blogosphere back in July 2009, but it should receive a new mix and master on the completed record. The rest features some amazing titles that we can't wait to hear like the classicist 'B-Boys In The Cut,' totally Beastie 'Nonstop Disco Powerpack' and a jam called 'Crazy Ass S---.'
'Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2' is the group's first official offering since 2004's 'To the 5 Boroughs' -- a back to basics rap album that found the group spitting collaborative old school battle rhymes over minimal futurist beats. Given the amount of time they've spent on the studio, fans are looking for something a little more ambitious and innovative this time around. The group's last chart-busting record, 'Hello Nasty,' was released way back in 1998.
Here's the full tracklist:
1. 'Tadlock's Glasses'
2. 'B-Boys in the Cut'
3. 'Make Some Noise'
4. 'Nonstop Disco Powerpack'
6. 'Too Many Rappers' (featuring NAS)
7. 'Say It'
8. 'The Bill Harper Collection'
9. 'Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win' (featuring Santigold)
