Multi-platinum selling producer Sha Money XL has dropped his debut album Chain On The Bike Vol. 1. The G-Unit co-founder’s nine-track LP features him collaborating with a mix of established rappers and emerging talent.
“Working with raw energy oftentimes delivers my best work,” he said in a press release. “With Chain On The Bike, I wanted to showcase artists I feel can breakthrough. I hope everyone enjoys their talent as much as I do.”
The project includes a posthumous Prodigy verse, which Sha released to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Mobb Deep’s classic The Infamous.
“Prodigy was the very first rap star to come to my home studio in my mom’s basement and vibe out with me,” he said in a press release. “Over the years, we recorded a lot of songs and ‘Divine Time’ was one of them, as was ‘Put ‘Em In Their Place’ from Mobb Deep’s Blood Money.
“The song has always meant a lot to me, so I wanted the perfect home for it. Chain On The Bike is just that and a great way to honor my friend and the group by putting out a new posthumous verse on the 25th anniversary of the groundbreaking Infamous.”
