After years of grinding his way through the streets of Boston, not only as an emcee, but as an aspiring actor, Slaine is ready to make 2010 his year to shine. Slaine, better known as member of rap super group La Coka Nostra, will release his debut solo album, "A World With No Skies" on October 26th, 2010 through Suburban Noize Records. With a key role in one of this year’s most eagerly anticipated films in “The Town” featuring Ben Affleck and Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker), and an explosive solo album set to drop right after, Slaine is on top of the world.
After putting his filmmaking dreams on the back burner more than a decade ago, SLAINE finally made his acting debut in 2007 with his portrayal of Bubba Rogowski in Ben Affleck's return to screenwriting and directorial debut "Gone Baby Gone". The film was critically acclaimed and led to Slaine being offered a larger role as a bank robber in the upcoming movie “The Town” featuring Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker), and Jon Hamm (Mad Men).
While Slaine’s acting career has allowed him to blaze new paths, his venomous lyrical attack burns hotter than ever on his debut solo album, "A World With No Skies", which drops on October 26th, 2010 through Suburban Noize Records. With hard hitting lyrical content, and vicious delivery, "A World With No Skies" instantly takes hip-hop back to its grimy roots on the streets. To execute his dark musical vision, Slaine enlisted the help of his La Coka Nostra brothers Everlast and ILL BILL, as well as Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Vinnie Paz of Jedi Mind Tricks to create a dark hip-hop album that hits squarely in the jaw.
