Grand Puba Readies New Release, Signs With Babygrande

Grand Puba, founding member of the legendary rap group Brand Nubian, has inked up with indie hip-hop label Babygrande Records to release his fourth solo album, Retroactive.

“Grand Puba is the father to so many styles in hip-hop,” Babygrande CEO Chuck Wilson said in a statement. “It’s good to have him back—the game needs him. We have a great relationship with Brand Nubian and we had so much success with Lord Jamar’s solo release in 2006 that it only makes sense to keep it in the family,”

Retroactive, set for release on June 23rd, will mark Puba’s first release since 2001’s Understand This. – Devin Chanda
