6-5/KGB/Warner Music Latin Recording Artist, LOOSE CANNON Fires Off Debut Album, "Who Do U Think U R ?"

(Newark, N.J.) The universe has felt the tremor of Brick City representative LOOSE CANNON for a long time now since he originally emerged on the scene several years ago at Miamis How Can I Be Down music conference. I know that I possess all the components that make up a great emcee. he says. Sounds pompous and a tad bit overzealous? Maybe

On Tuesday September 13th, Loose Cannon will finally unleash the long-awaited and highly anticipated debut album, Who Do U Think U R? on 6-5/KGB Records distributed by Warner Music Latin. The album features ten Loose Cannon originals with three skits as well as guest appearances by Terror Squads Fat Joe and Tony Sunshine and fellow Brick City native, Rah Digga. Who Do U Think U R? also features production from Scott Storch (Lean Back), Nick Fury, Dame Grease, Sedeck Jean, and many more.

In 2000 Loose Cannon landed a feature in the Source Magazines coveted Unsigned Hype column and hes been on fire ever since. After getting noticed by Ruff Ryders CEO Wah Dean and his flagship artist, DMX, Loose Cannon soon appeared on several of DMXs albums, Its Dark and Hell is Hot (1998), The Great Depression (2002), as well as the soundtrack to Cradle to the Grave (2003). It wasnt until Loose Cannon signed to DMXs label, Bloodline/Def Jam that things began to turn sour. He eventually bounced from Xs label citing lack of support from the powers-that-be. Not to be outdone and with a lot to get off his chest, Loose Cannon released the controversy-laden mixtape aptly titled, The Loose Cannon Mixtape Album selling an impressive 10,000 units out of the trunk.

Fast forward to 2005the lead club single from the debut album, Take It Off (featuring Fat Joe and Tony Sunshine) is currently burning up mixshows and charts around the country. Loose explores the concept of death in a gripping and thought-provoking fashion in the Scott Storch produced B-side, Almost Died touching the hearts of the hardest of the hard rocks. His brand new music video Who Do U think U R? video is currently being independently promoted nationally in over 40 markets via urban video shows. His mighty force is seemingly unstoppable!

Who Do U Think U R is a compelling collection of insightful rhymes, catchy hooks and fresh beats. You will surely remember the name Loose Cannon from beginning to end. .
