(Brooklyn, NY July 17, 2006) Los
Angeles veteran rapper Defari
is confirmed to release his third solo album Street Music Tuesday, August 8th on famed indie hip-hop
label ABB Records
, the
same label that released his first 12″ single, “Bionic” in 1997.

The first single off the new album is the Alchemist
produced song “Make My Own,”
featuring Dilated Peoples emcee/ producer Evidence
. “Make My Own” is off to a great
start at radio with plenty of spins at KPWR (Los Angeles, CA), KDAY (Los
Angeles, CA), KMEL (San Francisco, CA), KKFR (Phoenix, AZ), and XMOR (San
Diego, CA) to name a few. A video for “Make My Own”
is currently in production. Since leaving
the now defunct Tommy Boy label, Defari
hit the ground running with a countless number of
collaborations, most notably his work on “Some L.A. Niggas” featured
on Dr. Dre’s

multi-platinum release Chronic 2001. In addition to nonstop touring with acts
such as tha Alkaholiks, Xzibit, Little Brother and Dilated Peoples
, he recently partnered up with DJ Babu (Dilated Peoples/ World Famous Beat
Junkies) as the Likwit Junkies and released their first album, The L.J.’s, to
much critical acclaim in publications like the Source, Scratch, and Elemental

Taking it to the streets, Defari’s vision for his new project began with
the very people who supported him from the outset of his career. “I took
the advice of my fans, and they told me my best effort was Focused Daily
,” he says of conversations that led
to Street Music
“So, I wanted to take it back to Focused Daily
and turn it up times 20. That’s what Street
is about.
That’s where hip-hop began. That’s what I am, a hip-hop artist, and that’s
what I’m giving them, a straight bang-out.” 

Street Music
is filled with unrivaled production
courtesy of the Alchemist
(Mobb Deep), Evidence (Dilated Peoples/ Kanye West), E-Swift (Tha Alkaholiks), and Mike City (Jamie Foxx/ Sunshine Anderson) to name
a few. Also lending their talents are Dilated Peoples, J Ro
(Tha Alkaholiks), B Real (Cypress Hill), Tuffy (Channel Live), plus a few others.
