9/7/2013 Update: Soul Temple Music is run by a scammer. Most who have ordered items from the Bandcamp page for the label have not received their items. This includes the “free” Execution in Autumn 7-inch that was offered to the public which still had a $5 shipping fee. Please see the Boycott Soul Temple Music Facebook page for more details.
Original post 5/17/2013:
Received an e-mail from Soul Temple earlier tonight regarding the shipping issues they’ve been having lately which explains the delay on my instrumental copy of Twelve Reasons To Die that I ordered a few weeks ago. In response to this issue they have released an exclusive/unreleased track from RZA’s vault titled Execution in Autumn which features RZA, U-God, Raekwon, and Inspectah Deck and production from Frank Dukes which you can hear above. What’s really awesome though is that they are releasing the track and instrumental on a “pay what you feel basis” 7-inch record which can be purchased until May 31st. Nice track and awesome deal on the 7-inch, definitely makes up for the slow shipping in my opinion. You can download the song and purchase the 7-inch over here.
The e-mail from Soul Temple can be read in the spoiler:
