Hip Hop legends X-Clan have debuted the track “Down By Law” online at their MySpace page, from their upcoming new studio album “Mainstream Outlawz”, which is slated for a January 27th, 2009 release through Suburban Noize Records. The album takes aim at those planning Hip Hop’s Funeral.

The foundation for "Mainstream Outlawz" was built over a year long period with Brother J venturing into the heart of Houston, TX to re-ignite hip hop’s flame. The move brought out bouts of intense creativity bolstered by Brother J and his collaborators love for music. Joining X-Clan on their quest to bring hip hop back to the roots of the genre with the aid some of the industry’s biggest lyrical assassins including Bun B of UGK, Medusa and Supanatural. In their collaborations these artists have proudly banded together with X-Clan to proudly wave the flag for hip hop, while others would rather plan the genre's funeral.

“We urge our listeners to stop complaining and start listening, because hip hop is alive and well. It’s time for the underground to take the spotlight,” says X-Clan mastermind Brother J. “If you don’t take the time to learn the full spectrum of hip hop, you can’t keep complaining that the game is tainted and off track. There are enough active artists out here that are keeping it real in the name of music and not fad. There are some independent groups that deserve respect for their grind and we are one of them.”

X-Clan, one of the genres most powerful and influential hip hop crews ever, returned in 2007 after nearly a decade-long hiatus with their long awaited comeback album "Return From Mecca". The SOURCE Magazine proclaimed that "Brother J shines as he nourishes with vanglourious music," while the Los Angeles Times said the album was "a rare rap ''Return'' well worth the wait." The critically acclaimed album saw the group dropping their unique brand of ancestral wisdom and culture to a whole new generation of hip hop fans on sold out tours with Public Enemy, Damian ''Jr. Gong'' Marley and Jurassic 5.
