Despite the haters, Detroit is known to have a dope music scene. So, it’s only natural that three of its finest MCs have come together to form the supergroup, Crown Royal. Members P8tience, A-Dot and Recipe Aim will have you wanting to sip some Crown Royal on ice while listening to their debut single “Uh Huh.” Clever metaphors about race, God, politics and society float over a mellow head-nodding beat, swollen with that 90’s hip-hop vibe, exuding a bold and soulful energy. Produced by Paul Cabin and featuring artist H-I, “Uh Huh” was released by the Black Collar Music Group.
Described as polished, seasoned and sharp, P8tience is a clever D-Boy who gained his industry experience while traveling with Shady Records alumnus Obie Trice. Garnering critical acclaim for his appearance on several mixtapes and his own independent projects, Industry Ready and Industry Ready 2.0, P8tience has performed locally and worldwide.
Antoine (A-Dot) Crowder’s rise from one of the toughest areas in the D is shown through his inspiring messages about truth, empowerment and freedom. Determined to be a mentor and leader, A-Dot delivers a unique testimony about hip-hop’s new agenda. A-Dot has honed his craft on several stages throughout metro Detroit.
Recipe Aim has created his conscious artistry by killing negativity and birthing positivity. Recipe Aim honors the memory of his deceased older brother through his evolution from impulsive teen to triumphant battle rapper. He is determined to “Kill the Hate” that threatens hip-hop culture.
Crown Royal recently performed at the Dillatroit (Dilla Day) festivities honoring legendary producer, J Dilla. Their conscious and witty lyricism will have the fellas and the ladies saying, “It’s no more uh huh, it’s more like uh uh!” Crown Royal’s self-titled EP will be released some time this year.
