Vinyl LP pressing. Belgium based producer, Koss can be considered a hip-hop purist. His previously released body of work has emulated late '80s/early '90s heaters producing EP's for Craig G (Juice Crew), AG (Showbiz & AG) and El Da Sensei (Artifacts). Now Below System Records (Masta Ace, Phat Kat, Chuuwee & Trizz) will be releasing his official full-length production album entitled Born To Live. Whereas the previous EPs was one MC per release, the forthcoming album boasts an all-star line-up of spitters including Torae, Large Professor, Masta Ace, Keith Murray, Blaq Poet, Ruste Juxx, J-Live and Craig G. When asked why he decided to have different features on each track Koss related "I wanted this album to express life and my passion for the Hip-Hop culture. My aim was to choose MCs that no matter what is in style at the moment always stay consistent and remember where they came from." The true school vibe of the album even extends to the remixers that Koss selected. "Born To Live" features track remixes courtesy of K-Def (Ghostface Killah, Tragedy Khadafi), Large Professor (Main Source, Nas) and close friends 12 Finger Dan and B-Base.
