“It all happened with one phone call,” Marley Marl told during a Mar. 2006 interview. “They called me and he jumped on the phone and told me it would be spectacular for Hip-Hop…My reason for doing this is to show these kids that [Hip-Hop beefs] are not that serious.”

The first single from the release is titled “Kill A Rapper,” which focuses on the unsolved murders of several of rap’s biggest stars and why no one has been brought to justice.

Hip-Hop Lives hits stores on May 22 on Koch Records.
