about

It is said... long ago, ancient rulers made heavy use of sellswords, professional sword-slinging mercenaries with extraordinary prowess and skill. These near-mythic warriors sold their talents to the highest bidder, looting villages and emptying the coffers of kings.

Prime8 Pimpin’s new album Sellswords & Courtesans is a beat tape steeped in old school tradition, an hour-long collection of instrumental beats and breaks.

Prime8 Pimpin: “This all started when I came into possession of a binder full of Asian cinema. Most of the films I picked were Ronin or Samurai films but there were also a few Kung-Fu movies. I always want my projects to be action-packed so having a foundation of sword swinging and ass kicking didn’t hurt at all [...] As far as the name of the tape is concerned, there are two types of people that you will almost always see in a samurai film: Sellswords—mostly Ronin, and Courtesans—high-class escorts.”
