Hip-hop artist Omega Johnson (a/k/a OJ) will release his Limited Edition LP, "The Blackbird", on November 8, 2005. The first 50 copies will be an Advance Limited Edition, numbered and autographed by OJ.

“The Blackbird is like a revolution in the hip-hop sound”, Omega explains. “I don't work in comparison to the current-day hits, I prefer to be inspired by hip-hop classics that have already been standing the test of time, but work my own personality into it, so the music can be seen as a personal reflection, a show of truth. That's the whole rep of the label, Nunayufake... 'none-of-your-fakes'.”

The Blackbird is the premiere product from the US to bear the N-Free™ mark, indicating that "N-Word" is specifically not in use on a music work unless in its original context for historical or educational purpose. Introduced in 2004 with OJ's CD maxi-single "Flashbacks" b/w "Whispers in the Dark", the N-Free™ standard (http://www.nunayufake.com/nfree) has been noticed among the Black community in the US and abroad.

The album contains thirteen tracks plus limited bonus material, and features a guest appearance by Mr. Man of former Reprise/Warner Bros. hip-hop group Bush Babees. Production on The Blackbird has been handled by Dok Who?! and Cenzi Stiles, a Chilean producer currently residing in Canada. A remastered version of the album is planned in early 2006, possibly with additional bonus features. In a show of loyalty to early purchasers, The Nunayufake Project will give customers of the Advance Limited Edition access to freely download the additional bonus tracks from the remastered album as it becomes available. “It wouldn't be fair to have people purchase an album, only to give later consumers more for their dollar”, says OJ. “Let them get everything they should get.”

For more information and review copies of the CD, please contact The Nunayufake Project at 212-696-6842 or info@nunayufake.com.

The Blackbird will be available through Nunayufake.com, CDBaby.com, and TowerRecords.com.
