Representing New Orleans, the underground MC known as Truth Universal carries the torch for revolutionary lyricism, community activism, and true-school beats and rhymes. Recorded under the tutelage of Bay Area vet Paris and featuring cameos from Wise Intelligent, Doodlebug of Digable Plantets, and sticman of dead prez, Truth’s debut album SELF DETERMINATION is true to its title--embodying the same revolutionary spirit heralded by Paris since the early 1990s. SELF DETERMINATION includes production work from S1, Panik, Nick the 1da, Natural Born, Dan Freeman, Gensu Dean, Andino, and Bass Heavy.
