Army of the Pharoahs
We are here. We are in your hood. In your face. In your mind. We are in your ear. In your line of vision. We are… HERE!!!
Block Mccloud and his Psychotic gang of mentally Disturbed Individuals have escaped from Seaview Mental institution and are sweeping across The North American Continent (Union) with the intent to verbally abuse and physically assault, they say, any and all of those who step in there way!! We have in our possession, Block and DJ Waxworks Four Walls LP, a musical journal , graphically depicting Blocks and Waxworks horrible incarceration , there subsequent rebellion and “Uprising”, and eventual escape From Seaview. It seems they were assisted by a veritable Underground Whos Who of criminally insane Artists that include Ill Bill, Slaine, Vinnie Paz, King Syze, king Magnetic, R.A. The Rugged Man, Celph Titled, Reef The Lost Cause, Demunz The Dark Apostle, Diabolic, Thirstin Howl, Hassan Salaam and many, many more..
We have heard from sources all around the world that Block is also in cahoots with a list of Dangerous Criminal Geniuses like Busta Rhymes, Canibus, Cappadonna, Redman, Rusty Juxx, Planet Asia, Jaysaun, Q Unique, Hopskin, Sticky Fingaz, Kriss Kalico, Sick Jacken, and many, many more..
There also was inscribed in blood within that journal a methodically evil plan, By Block Mccloud to form an army of “Crazy Men” and women, escaped convicts, felons, and emcees with the balls to join his gang, which he has aptly named the Disturbia Music Group or Suicide Squad and essentially plans to overthrow what he calls “ A Campaign against humanity by The Brother hood of Saturn”. Not sure what this means but its obvious The CRAZY MAN himself, is dead serious and completely off his rocker!!

"The term legend is thrown around loosely in hip-hop. It sometimes seems that any stumblebum who has made it past 30 without dying is entitled to the adulation of internet boys and the various rags they support. But what of one Mr. Block Mccloud? He has innovated lyricism and founded one of the most seminal crews in New York's second golden age. He plotted one of the most successful underground concept singles ever released, and most importantly, he survived the inevitable soul grinding shadiness that the talented seem to always suffer at the hands of the unscrupulous. Through all of this he has refined his writing, his business acumen, and kept spitting the verses that make future generations of dope MC's smack rewind till the button breaks."
"Born Ismael Diaz Jr., in Park Slope, Planet Brooklyn, Block certainly was in the right place to absorb cultural and stylistic influences. Like every rapper reared in the sacred borough, he is quick to credit its social collage as key in spurring his development. " I was raised in Park Slope which was and is still a very eclectic and culturally and economically diverse neighborhood," Block explains. " North of 5th avenue, very paid. South of 5th avenue, strictly ghetto."
"His snarling, growling, syllable-heavy, cannon flow mad him a distinctive presence on wax; the type of MC other MC's strive to emulate. He and His Brooklyn Academy brethren had the lyrics and the dark charisma needed to dominate...
...But dispite the lack of access to his material, he has achieved cult-like international fame as one of the most brutal spitters alive."
"Now with the benefit of over a decade and a half in the game he is ready to claim the prizes he so rightfully deserves...
— Daniel Muessig, Elemental Magazine, 2006.
"I never thought going in that id have an opportunity to work with some of the cats ive worked with and to be procclaimed a *"legend" , thats certainly an honor and something that i look forward to solidifying within this game, this year"
— Block Mccloud
Growing up in Park Slope Brooklyn, Block Mccloud first made his name with a group called Zooty Zoo, appearing on the Ecko Unlimited MixTapes that they'd give out for free with a purchase of a T-shirt. He then went on to appear on The Lyricist Lounge Volume 1 Compilation Album with Talib Kweli and Shabamm Sadik and of course his other group Word a mouth. By then Block Mccloud had already embedded his name on the Underground Asphalt with his gritty and unmistakable flow and complex rhyme skemes. Speaking of Skeme, he then founded the "Super Group" Brooklyn Academy and released a single with 321 Records called Plan A. Skeme Team was their alter ego on that single and it went on to sell 30,000 units and was the biggest selling single for that label. Brooklyn Academy soon caught the attention of Mammoth Records and if not for the labels untimely buy-Out by Disney, would have signed a $300,000 deal and God only knows where they'd be today.
Block Mccloud kept it moving, recording Jean Grae's, Pumpkinhead's, and Black Panther's next few albums (Attack of the Attacking Things, Code Red, Beatiful Mind, The Darkest Night Ever) and begins establishing himself as a premiere Engineer.
In 2006, He officially assumed his rightful place in the Underground Hip-hop Hall of fame when he released his classic solo albums, "Spitting Image" and "I was Drunk when i made this".
From There Block Begins his onslaught of the Chorus Game writing such classic hooks as Style Wars(Jean Grae), Mess You Made (Sean Price) and Outlive The War, Deadly Melody and God Flesh (Jedi Mind Tricks). You can also find him on MF Grimm's American Hunger Album, Soul Purpose, Diabolic and Thirstin howl albums and many more (See Discography).
And its no wonder they call him "Captain Hook", with upcoming choruses for/with Redman and R.A The Rugged Man,, Busta Rhymes, Sheek Looch, Jada Kiss and Styles P,, Cappadonna, Heaven Raisah, King Magnetic, New AOTP Album, New VINNIE PAZ Album, Demunz (Canada), Sick Jacken (Cali), and many many more, he has easily become the new Nate Dogg (R.I.P) of the Underground scene and soon to be Mainstream. As an official member of Army of The Pharaohs, you will also hear him all over the upcoming AOTP release in 2012.
He has contributed to the success of so many in this game. He is slated to Tour the World from July ’12 to Feb ’13 of this year so look for him in your nearest venue or stadium as he spreads his Madness from every stage across the country and the world. With two solo albums, Four Walls produced by DJ WAXWORK and DNA VOL.1, produced by Block himself with Genetics The Untangible , Scare Beats, Gemini Lounge, and Philhamonic, and a great Gem by his good friend BAYZ BiZAH (R.I.P) as well as two new Lost Soulz full length LP's(Rise of the Imperfects/Asylum) scheduled to be released through his independent label Disturbia Music Group, He will be hitting the industry like a Hurricane in 2012!! ...
