Megalon - A Penny For Your Thoughts Album Cover

Monster Island Czar Tommy Gunn/Megalon’s full length is available over at UGHH….or shipping soon anyway. Peace to Day by Day, the hardest working label in hip hop music. They hooked up with Atoms Family backbone Cryptic One a while back and finally released his album (which is one my favorites this year…). And if you didn’t know, Day by Day also runs a rock label and serves as a distributor for magazines TABLIST and Cool’Eh. I wonder if Grimm is hiring….

Here’s a lost and found ‘freestyle’ session with Tommy Gunn and Trife – another legendary long island spitter, going back and forth (circa 1999) . For those of you who aren’t familiar with Trife (no not this Trife…) check this old Pete Rock 12″ featuring trife and rock marciano of the U.N. (Carson Daly’s 456 Enterainment recently released the U.N. album). Trife has been tearing up mcs in Queens, Long Island and beyond since the early 90s battling or sharing stages, mics, and cipher-time with the best of them. Semi-recently he recorded a crazy 3 or 4 verses, one-take-jake style, over a moog-ed out DJ Signify beat but don’t expect that to ever surface. Be on the look out for possible Trife appearances on future GRANDGOOD projects.
