NEW YORK, NY — (MARKET WIRE) — 08/14/07 — KOCH Records announces the release of Bizarre’s new album, “Blue Cheese ‘n’ Coney Island,” on October 9th, 2007. As one of Detroit’s most indelible underground rap entities and as a part of Eminem’s multi-platinum supergroup D-12, Bizarre has carved out a unique niche in the hip-hop world. Combining hardcore lyrics with over the top humor and delivery, Bizarre has become one of the most unique hip-hop artists in the game today.
Bizarre says, “I named it ‘Blue Cheese ‘n’ Coney Island’ basically because in Detroit we’re known for our Coney Islands (hot dogs),” Bizarre explains. “A lot of people that visit there may think it’s nasty, but only a true Detroiter can appreciate that. I still live in Atlanta, but if you’re from Detroit, you just can’t get it out of your system. So I have to go back every two weeks or so to stay in tune. I’m just a Detroit guy.”
Both D-12 albums, “Devil’s Night” and “D-12 World,” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and are both certified platinum. Bizarre has also been featured on Eminem’s last three albums, “The Marshall Mathers LP,” “The Eminem Show,” and “Encore.”
His first solo album, “Hannicap Circus,” sold over 21,000 copies in its first week of release and debuted at #12 on the Billboard Rap Chart. Now he’s back with his second solo effort, “Blue Cheese ‘n’ Coney Island.” The first single, “Fat Boy,” produced by Eminem’s early collaborating producer Jeff Bass, is sure to keep fans simultaneously packing the dance floor and falling out of their seats with laughter. Bizarre’s larger than life persona and one-of-a-kind flow is sure to make ” Blue Cheese ‘n’ Coney Island” a must get for hip-hop fans across the country.
