The Gumshoe Strut, New Album and New Label


The Gumshoe Strut - SideWalk

The Gumshoe Strut is ready to break out of the shadows with his new project, SideWalk. The album, which will be available as a download by donation this August on his and Pip Skid’s new Marathon of Dope imprint, will mark a new era for the artist who has been known for his honest rhymes and marching rythms. SideWalk features a strong supporting cast, including appearances by Pip Skid, Birdapres and Yy of Peanuts & Corn Records, Azrael of Imaginations Treetrunk, Forgetful Jones of Side Road Records, and Saratonin.

  11. max prime

    can’t way to see what this label pumps out. thats a dope lineup.

  12. shoes

    good call on the moondog, you’ll also enjoy “The Hot Is On The Left” too in that case!

    Pip Skid will be dropping his Pip Donahue Remix project at the same time as SideWalk. Both will be available as free downloads or by donation in very early August! Physical copies will also be available. I may have some @ Summer Fling if its finished.

    Just to clarify, Marathon Of Dope is not necessarily a label (but could be in certain cases), but more of a imprint/website that will be dedicated to hosting new and past releases by certain artists for download (either by set price, free or by donation).

    Thanks for the feedback ya’ll. I am excited to come visit and rap the new shit in your backyards!
