three albums through Holographic Pagoda Recordings, Dark Alliance (2008), Word Supremacy (2010), and Speak and Destroy (2011). This is what Jake Paine, Editor of HipHopDX had to say: "Hardcore Hip Hop lives, as the restless Lone Ninja and June Marx drop a third LP in two years."
As a soloist, Lone Ninja was featured on Wu tang clan's mentor, Popa Wu's "Visions Of The Tenth Chamber Part II" on the track "Hallz Of Justice" in 2008. Since then Lone has released Covert Operative EP (2008), Burnt Sector (2009), and Fatal Peril (2012) through Holographic Pagoda Recordings.
Lone Ninja is often compared to the likes of MF Doom, due to the concealment of his identity and also to Killarmy for the war zone imagery he masterfully conveys in his rhymes. He has shown that he can hold his own on tracks with Underground Hip Hop heavyweights such as Reef The Lost Cause (The Kumite) and UG of the Cella Dwellas (Enemy Base).
Rogue Agent is Lone Ninja's most ambitious solo album to date, boasting 27 tracks, 11 features and 14 assorted producers. It is an action packed roller-coaster ride that stays consistant and combines the distinct sounds from his three previous albums and then takes it to a higher level.
Some featured producers include the 3 core producers from the previous albums June Marx, Lord Gamma, Blaq Masq, JBL The Titan, (Produced two tracks on Vinnie Paz's God of the Serengeti),White Shadow Of Norway (Produced for Kool G. Rap, Raekwon, KRS One, Canibus, Immortal technique, Cappadonna and more),
Kyo Itachi (a promising upcoming producer from France), EDK (Veteran producer who produced a song for Kool Keith), and many many more. Jake Paine of HipHopDX also said this of Lone "Lone Ninja keeps the character of Hip Hop alive at a time when everybody wants to be known."
Lone Ninja dedicates this album to the passing of his father who died earlier this year. When you lose a loved one, especially someone who gave you strength and taught you everything you know, you can either decide to
succumb to depression or manifest their spirit and fight on harder than you ever did before to uphold their honor and continue the legacy, Lone Ninja chooses the latter.
Lone Ninja has featured his father on the Burnt Sector song "Wind Darts" you can hear the coaching of a father to a son on the break and outro of the song.
His father will also be heard on the Rogue Agent track "Inner Force Centers" Featuring Son Of Saturn. November 27th is significant because it is the birthday of the "son" who will live on and carry on the fight.
Rogue Agent will be available November 27th at UGHH.com, Sandbox Automatic, AccessHiphop.com, Amazon, Itunes and various other digital stores.
