New York producer Black Panther (no relation to the Marvel Comics hero) announced he’s releasing his second album, My Eternal Winter, on his newly formed imprint Manekinko Pro. For those that don’t know, Black Panther has worked with C-Rayz Walz (Ravipops [The Substance]), Immortal Technique (Revolutionary Vol. 2), and Celph Titled. His first album, the mostly instrumental The Darkest Night Ever, dropped on Third Earth Music (Kimari Rogers of The Masterminds and Roosevelt Franklin’s old label) back in 2003. My Eternal Winter drops March 13.
“Winter showcases a more progressive approach in his production and varied musical styles such as R&B, Hip-Hop and Rock/Pop,” reads a press release distributed via the ubiquitous MySpace. Guests scheduled to appear include M-1, J-Treds, Maya Azucena, Oktober and Shabaam Saadiq. The first single, “All Falls Down” hits digital stores on January 30. In the meantime, you can get yourself acquainted with Black Panther on his MySpace page.
