Deuce Ellis is a Buffalo born, Brooklyn raised rapper/producer who should not be overlooked. Ellis is well known for his introspective poetic lyricism and abstract often experimental production.
This Friday July 2nd he will be releasing his latest full length project "Acid" onto streaming services. The project will feature a number of lyrical heavyweights including Sauce Heist, Homeboy Sandman, Napoleon Da Legend and Buffalos own Che Noir.
This will be his first full length project of the year following his beat tape released earlier this year as well as his full length project "Midnight Ouroboros" released in 2020. His "Midnight Ouroboros" project came with some unique merchandise including a special comic book and vinyl's.
He will continue the creative approach with his release of "Acid" and the merchandise associated with the project. He will handle the release of limited edition merchandise capsules on his CultClassics88 website. Cult Classics 88 is his personal label used to distribute music and merchandise. He has shown images of new style sneakers, sweatpants, hoodies and t-shirts to go alongside physical CD's that will be available on his website this Friday.
He has partnered with TuffKongRecords for the Vinyl release of his upcoming "Acid" project. The vinyl release will be very limited with only 250 copies being made available for purchase in total. There will be 30 on black vinyl w/ OBI, 70 on white / teal vinyl, and 150 on black vinyl. These will sell fast so set your alarm and be ready to cop.
Both the merchandise capsule as well as the vinyl release will be made available this Friday July 2nd at 11 a.m est. Ellis will also be hosting a double release party on July 2nd to celebrate the release of "Acid".
The first part will be held at Rotten Island Records between 2-6pm and will include performances by Deuce Ellis, Frank Knight, Chelsea Reject, with DJ sets by Raw and DJ J-Ronin. There will also be a free vegan cookout sponsored by Cult Classics. The second part of the release party will happen in Times Square Plaza between 7-9pm and include the unveiling of Deuce’s billboard, a video shoot, and a smokeout with free pre-rolled joints (while supplies last).
