New York hip-hop trio BLESTENATION has signed a deal with Suburban Noize Records. The trio has previously worked with a litany of folks across various genres, including Maynard James Keenan. BLESTENATION is currently offering a free download of their MBC Digital mixtape featuring Jadakiss, Ladytron, Puscifer, and Travis Barker online at this location.
BLESTENATION was once described by Interscope’s Jimmy Iovine as, “The most promising group I have signed since Nine Inch Nails”, but was deemed too explicit for the major label world after the group’s drug addiction and day-to-day insanity derailed their career. The group was previously signed to Geffen Records before their reckless behavior got them kicked off of Warped Tour, into fist fights inside the SONY Music offices, and got them kicked out of the Teen Choice Awards after getting into an altercation with American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest.
