CZARFACE returns with their latest action-packed odyssey, CZARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. The new album from the hip hop supergroup featuring Inspectah Deck (Wu-Tang Clan), Esoteric and 7L is their first as part of their worldwide deal with Virgin Music and features esteemed guests like Logic, Kool Keith, Nems and more.
CZARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE weaves together the unfiltered essence of OG braggadocio, introspective story-telling, and high-flying superheroes. Together, they create a dynamic synergy that’s as engaging as flipping through the pages of your favorite graphic novel. Their guests join CZARFACE on missions and side-quests, bringing enough power to warp the space-rhyme continuum. Through intricate verses and captivating production, CZARFACE invites you to journey alongside them, exploring the intersection of cosmic hip-hop and comic book culture.
CZARFACE debuted with their self-titled album in 2013 though 7L, Esoteric and Inspectah Deck first worked together on the 12″ single “Speaking Real Words” in 1999. The three continued to stay in touch, periodically working together and, in 2013, Esoteric approached Deck about a possible full-length project centered around a superhero character called “CZARFACE.”
What they thought would be a one off mixtape-type project has now seen multiple albums featuring collaborations with the likes of MF Doom, Ghostface Killah, Roc Marciano, Conway the Machine, Mayhem Lauren, Method Man, Action Bronson, Vinnie Paz, Frankie Pulitzer, GZA and more; contributions to the Marvel movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage; and hundreds of merch drops including limited edition comics, apparel, action figures, art, shoes, and more featuring artwork illustrated by Lamour Supreme.
