It’s Official, Bounty Killer Along With The Alliance Join The VP Records Roster
|October 26th, 2006, Jamaica, NY—VP Records seals exclusive album agreements with The Alliance and Bounty Killer. The indestructible force of The Alliance consists of honorary members, Bounty Killer, Elephant Man, Wayne Marshall, Vybz Kartel, as well as, new protégés Movado, Busy Signal, Aidonia, and Bling Dawg. In early 2007, The Alliance will release some of the baddest tunes on their debut album. Then in the summer of 2007, Bounty Killer will return with his solo album featuring all new material to make another mark in dancehall history.
This November, VP will reintroduce Bounty’s musical genius to the world with “Nah No Mercy…The Warlord Scrolls,” featuring 41 of his most esteemed hits over the last decade. Besides this collection, it has been over three years since Bounty Killer’s last solo album, so this much anticipated venture is long overdue. “Bounty is one of Jamaica’s greatest icons and has been in the business for over 10 years producing, dee-jaying and developing new talent. He will continue to build on these legacies during the development of his new solo album as well as The Alliance’s release,” states Bounty’s manager Julian Jones-Griffiths.
Since the early 90s, VP has been involved with Bounty Killer’s previous projects, including his last Ghetto Dictionary albums (the Grammy nominated “Art of War” and the successful “The Mystery”). CEO of VP Records, Chris Chin, elaborates, “It’s always a pleasure to work with a multi-faceted artist like Bounty because the opportunity is endless. Both Bounty and The Alliance have unique elements that appeal to both dancehall and hip-hop fans, so we plan to expand on this success and transcend even more borders.”
