    Sway & King Tech, legendary hosts of the syndicated rap radio program “The Wake Up Show,” will showcase up-and-coming artists alongside veteran acts with the release of their second album Back 2 Basics.

    The title is intended as a return to focusing more on lyricism, the pair explains.

    “[It’s] all about giving talented MCs with a passion for delivering mind-moving music an opportunity to flex their skills to the world,” said King Tech in a statement.

    Among the featured artists on the album are Common, Royce Da 5’9’’, Kam and Canibus, and emerging talent like Sly Boogy, Crooked I, Kallihan, Self Scientific, Dirty Birdy and Verb & Rock.

    “It’s going to help open the door of innovation and expansion. Projects like this will come out to balance a lot of this cookie cutter, quick-fix music that is out,” added Sway, who has played a crucial role at MTV. “These people are making music that will stand the test of time.”

    Sway & King Tech have already released Kam’s “I Don’t Think So” featuring Tracy Lane and Rondo to mix show DJs, and the first single “I Wish You Would” features Royce Da 5’9”, Chino XL and Canibus.

    “Our thing isn’t to become rich,” Sway continued. “We just want to create things that are rich in quality on behalf of the culture.”

    Sway & King Tech released their album This Or That in 1999, featuring the single “The Anthem,” with Eminem, Jayo Felony and Chino XL.

    Artists such as Notorious B.I.G., Eminem, Jay-Z, and Nas have all been featured on Sway & King Tech’s radio show prior to reaching star status.

    Back 2 Basics is scheduled for release in May, and music is available at www.swayandkingtech.net.
