Ebony Tusks is a hip-hop project from Cowboy Indian Bear's Marty Hillard. A new release is coming, called Midas -- Hillard refers to it as a "mini concept album" -- and it will be released on March 21. If you haven't caught Hillard rapping live yet, Ebony Tusks will open for Das Racist on March 30 along with Stik Figa, Greg Enemy and DJs Morri$ and Tom Richman at The Granada. The show will double as a release party for Midas.
"If we hit 500 downloads between 3/21/11 and 3/28/11, we'll rerelease 'Sioux Empire,' the single we made available in October/November 2010," Hillard says. Check out our review of the track here.
