With a "Bible in one hand, broken bottle in the other" (Spin June '09) Ha Ha Tonka return with their sophomore effort on Bloodshot Records, Novel Sounds of the Nouveau South. The album takes listeners on a complex tour of the South—through lynchings and mob violence, sacrifice and reconciliation. It’s dense subject matter for any artist, but delivered beautifully on this record by these native sons of the Ozarks from Springfield, Missouri.

Let there be no mistake, Master Shortie – rapper, entrepreneur - samplemeister - indie/rap pioneer and musical trail-blazer - is a man who always gets what he wants. This, after all, is a self-made 19-year-old artist who simply doesn’t play by anyone’s rules but his own. A man who has been recording raps off his own back and without any major label backing since he was 12 and is totally in charge of all of his own promotion, record releases, styling and marketing.
