After creating a buzz with songs, “Get Yo GoofAss Out My Face” and “Early Retirement” through his #FocusedFridays, Landon Battles is ready to present the finished product to the industry.

His debut project “Black Gold,” distributed by Sony/Orchard/IndieFresh in June harnesses the meaning of black culture and what it means to America, Chicago and specifically the family structure.

Songs such as “Fathers Day,” “Gang Related,” and “Holy Hallelujah,” with features from Ras Kas & The Boy Illinois. Along with major placements from Jackthriller.com, TheSource.com and Fakeshoredrive.com, Battles encompasses all the variations of the ideal artist that speaks his mind from Chicago.

Self-described as the “Alternative Rapper”, Battles uses his live-wire personality and witty lyrics to create a sound all his own that isn’t afraid to delve into other genres such as R&B, Reggae, and Pop. Thus far the prolific emcee has released four mix-tapes and 2 albums including 2013’s “Banger.”
