NAAM BRIGADE, through a venture with Tuff Break Entertainment, is the first artist signed to ARTISTdirect's newly launched record label, ARTISTdirect Records, by CEO Ted Field. The Philadelphia-based trio are currently recording their debut album due out in early 2002. The BRIGADE will co-produce.
"It was very important to me that the first act I signed to ARTISTdirect Records be undeniable," said Field. "NAAM BRIGADE is that rare combination of pure hip-hop talent that combines rapping and singing with lyrics that include cleverness, substance and street credibility."
