PRESSED ON ORCHID COLORED VINYL
Comprised of group members ILL Bill, Lord Goat (f/k/a Goretex), Sabac Red and DJ Eclipse, The Future Is Now remains the group’s sole full length effort, garnering much acclaim among both critics and fans alike. Considered by many as an underground classic, TFIN boasts a production dream team that includes DJ Premier, Pete Rock and Large Professor, who have yet to appear credited together on the same album since the release of Nas’s Illmatic.
Additional producers tapped include JuJu of The Beatnuts, as well as group affiliate Necro, Dave 1 of Chromeo and T-Ray. ?The album features guest appearances from Necro, MF DOOM, The Beatnuts, Al Tariq, Marley Metal, Stephen Carpenter of Deftones, and Christian Olde Wolbers and Raymond Herrera of Fear Factory.
The album's cover art was created by Mear One, and the logo is a tribute to Canadian metal band Voivod.
Upon release, the album broke into the top fifteen on Billboard's Independent Albums and Heatseekers charts, peaking at #65 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The album includes the singles "Black Helicopters,” "Drug Music" b/w "If You Got Love" and "Rock Stars" b/w "The C.I.A. is Trying to Kill Me.” “Black Helicopters" was the LP’s sole charting single, peaking at #46 on the Hot Rap Singles chart.
