Signing his first record deal with Tommy Boy at 17 years old under the moniker ''8-Off The Assassin,'' and later moving to the now defunct EastWest/Elektra label, Agallah is no stranger to the rigors of the hip-hop music world. Now long-time Purple City/Dipset affiliate and hip-hop mainstay, Agallah is gearing up for his long awaited debut solo release “You Already Know".

His singles, "Ghetto Girls" and "Crookie Monster," are considered hip-hop classics. Over the years, Ag has also achieved notoriety as a producer, having provided tracks for hip-hop and rap artists Busta Rhymes, Remy Ma, The Diplomats, the late Big Pun and many more.

Agallah has also kept busy on the mic, teaming up with Shiest Bubz ''The Emperor'' (who also serves as the executive producer of "You Already Know") to form the renowned Dipset affiliated mixtape movement Purple City.

Hot on the heels of Ag's phenomenally successful and critically lauded early 2006 street mixtape, "Propane Piff," "You Already Know" features guest appearances by producer/emcee The Alchemist, the legendary Kool G. Rap, the politically charged duo Dead Prez, southern hip-hop favorites Nappy Roots and long time Agallah affiliate Ike Eyez. Production duties are handled by The Alchemist, Hip-Hop legend DJ Premier (Gang Starr), and of course Agallah himself.

With a signature sound that straddles the boundaries of both the independent and mainstream/commercial domain, Agallah sees the album as a distinctive offering in the current hip-hop landscape as well as a culmination of a lifetime of experience: "I want people to see what I''m bringing to the table is something extravagant, is something incredible and unforgettable and at the same time see that I walked the path that I walked."

Agallah ''The Don Bishop's'' "You Already Know" drops August 22nd.
