Moke and Tone are the two man hip-hop consortium consisting of the Cali-born, Bronx-bred Mokeout of Hardtimes Records and the Massachusetts based Tone of The Problemaddicts (Mystika Music, LLC); ranked in 2009 as URB.com's "Next 1000".
Shot Heard Round The World is Moke and Tone's debut LP which delicately walks the divide between street and conscious rap, addressing a wide brush stroke of themes that range from the powers of good versus evil, overzealous emcees fighting for position, 911 conspiracy theories, and the call for alarm in this uncertain world. Produced extensively by Mystika Music's in-house production crew Team Genius, Shot Heard Round The World also boasts production from Illmind (50 Cent, Eminem, Little Brother), J Clyde (Young Buck, Heltah Skeltah) and features precision turntablism courtesy of The Problemaddicts own DJ Theory.
Shot Heard Round The World includes an impressive line-up of guest features that include Slaughterhouse's Crooked I, Brooklyn Academy's Mr. Metaphor, Catalyst and Vorheez of The Problemaddicts. The album's first single "Respect" was campaigned for an eight week college radio campaign where it peaked as the number three hip-hop single in the country through RapAttackLives.com & RapNetwork.
