Team Facelift is a New York-bred rap group consisting of three rappers: Machine, Fat Jew, and Alden Pact (aka Karim Shallah or Ginger Ale), and one producer, Tommy Bermuda. Our aim is basically to do to rap what Elton John did to being gay.

Now that you are somewhat familiar, let me also add that the three met while attending college at Skidmore in Saratoga, NY. Maybe it was the corners of Broadway and Caroline St. that helped mold their style. Their producer is Tommy MAS who also produced Action Bronson's "Dr. Lecter". I spoke with MAS recently and he said they were taking a break to work on other things. He's a super talented lab tech that informed me his recording, mixing and mastering is kept extremely simple. I can appreciate what he is doing while hitting both sides of the spectrum. Some of the faster jams remind me of early dance music with a crisp flip on the drum and voice overs. As far as i know they are signed by Duckdown and continue to work on music. Machine already has released a mixtape (which I posted below) and has one on the way with fellow emcee Ginger Ale. Both Action and Facelift have also been working with Don Producci. He created the majority of songs on J-Love's Bon Appetite....Bitch mixtape. There are a few Team Facelift releases out there including Passion Cove, Their self titled mixtape, and Mixed Emotions. 6 Grams was pushed by Duckdown.

This is hot sex on a platter. Get you some.
That girliein the vid was flizeye, I hope oneofum tagged dat.
Today I grabbed the latest Producci disc of the net. It has all the stuff he has been working on with no tags. Yay! It always sucks when you want to play a song, but you don't want to look like an asshole for having 10 J-love tags on it. I'd rather just wait it out. Night Court is one of my personal favorites be sure to check this dudes page if you need beats. Tight kits, hot samples and great prices.
The latest from Facelift member Machine.
Just in case you want to drift a little deeper.
Bout to go out to the firepit and chill , fuck this.
