Final Penalty is a rap duo from Central Illinois. Brothers Chef B and Mr. Cutlass formed the group Final Penalty and Hazmat Productionz to record a collection of tracks a few years ago, and ever since have been making a buzz not only in the USA but also in Europe. They have a fresh new style to the underground rap scene which is considered to be ahead of their time. Chef B is the producer but together the duo combine solid rap skills with dope beats to create a different style of rap which at the time has no genre.
With four underground albums already released in 2010 shows the work ethic and determination of the Final Penalty is hard. After Wolftown Recordings CEO LATE discovered Final Penalty they began to chop it up before LATE hooking up this Tricksta produced EP for Wolftown. ‘The Pay Scale’ is a deep, dark, mysterious and banging EP that reality rap fans will love and adore. LATE features on the first track ‘Stand Up, Man Up’ which is already getting love from the Hip-Hop media both sides of the pond. This is a great release and is some refreshingly original in an era when everyone is trying to be a pop star.
In May 2011, Hazmat Productionz dropped the first volume of the Strength In Numbers Compilation series. It features a wide variety of very talented artists across the world in the underground rap scene. Final Penalty's 3rd album The Cost Of Living is scheduled to be released in June 2011. The Mr Cutlass follow up ep to The Chop Shop is scheduled to be released around August 2011. Stay tuned to see what else this dynamic duo has in store for the rest of the year, as well as next year!
