The Pledge Empire - Amanda Dyslin


TBA - Jed Highhum


Three years ago, brothers God’s Prince and Ced took their thousand-dollar keyboard and began making beats to get their message out. The quasi-Christian group The Pledge Empire consists of the two MCs who have the slur of Prodigy and the monotonous drawl of MF Doom respectively. Having already released the duo’s LP The Campaign, and the mixtape The Calm Before The Storm, they now turn their focus to God’s Prince’s solo album The Crown Prince. God’s Prince would “rather die on his feet than live on his knees.” Assuming that is a no-homo line rather than a no-Jesus line, The Crown Prince will certainly be hard hitting. Hailing originally from Virginia Beach they can also be considerate, “Johnny Drama, I’m peaceful like the Dalai Lama,” Ced spits. Their Myspace page has a video of them performing outside of a car wash, with a shoe polish sign reading “students.” These dudes are for the people. - Reviewed by Alex "Dweezy" Dwyer
