The Lo-Life General and the God Of The Five-Percent Nation combine forces in new video "Eat These Bars." The track was produced by 3 Ways and Anger Bangers and the video has an appearance by heavyweight boxing champion,Shannon Briggs).

"Eat These Bars" is one of the new tracks from the full-length collaboration project, The God And The General, which drops digitally this week (purchase links below). Mixed by DJ PF Cuttin’ (Blahzay Blahzay, East NY Radio), the project is made up of new material as well as unreleased collaborations between the two and all their classic match-ups from the start of the millennium. Guests include Kool Keith, Spit Gemz, DV Alias Khrist, RA The Rugged Man, Rack-Lo, Shabaam Sahdeeq and more.

Howl has been an original force within emceeing for many years starting with his work with a young Eminem, Rawkus Records on the MTV Lyricist Lounge show. Perhaps he is just as well-known for his contribution to the style game as an original founder of the Lo-Life Crew. The Lo-Lifes being an infamous street fashion crew that forever immortalized Ralph Lauren Polo's within the culture. Speaking on his relationship with Sadat he said 'he always remembered me from the late 80’s before I was even rapping when I was terrorizing the clubs. I always was a fan of his music.' 

Of course Sadat X is legendary both for his solo work as well as a member of Brand Nubian (along with Grand Puba, Lord Jamar and DJ Alamo). With a distinctive twang and highly influential rhyme-style everyone from Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G., Nas and Pete Rock has sought him out for collaborations. Speaking on working with Howl he said, 'Thirstin is the perfect example of someone who has transformed himself into a positive force. It’s always great to work with my Lo brother and refreshing to work with another emcee who shares the same relentless work ethic as myself.' 

Gods And Generals can be purchased at Thirstin Howl's website where you can also find information on his recent photo-journal Bury Me With The Lo On, which is a visual history of the Lo-Life movement (co-authored by Tom Gould and released by Victory Journal). The book has sold out of its second printing as of this writing and has brought him to Japan, Ireland and other locales for speaking engagements.
