When he’s not tattooing the likes of MURS, Jean Grae, 2Mex, Big Pooh, members of Arcade Fire, and others at his popular tattoo shop STARING WITHOUT CARING, Tucson, Arizona rapper Isaiah Toothtaker continues to turn heads with his latest album, Illuminati Thug Mafia, released late last month as part of a joint venture between Alpha Pup Records and his own label Machina Muerte. Now the Tucson native is treating fans with the latest single, “Baby,” which fans can also expect a video for in the coming days.

Convicted multiple felon and participant in over 400 witnessed street fights — all after being kicked out of his home at the age of 11 and having his father murdered by Tucson Police — it’s no secret that Isaiah Toothtaker has seen and experienced plenty of violence’s shady underworld. And the combination of heavily reverberating drums, high-speed crashing percussion, deep bass, and shrill organ stabs, create a perfectly grim and sinister backdrop for the Machina Muerte Capo to unwind his tales, starting with his off-kilter, semi-melodic chorus, as he sings, “Dear mama, didn’t mean to kill your baby, is that your baby?/ Holy father, I’m waiting for you to save me, so can you save me?” Later referring to himself as the “Only undertaker that overachieves,” Toothtaker, on “Baby” as with the rest of the album, mixes mayhem with deft wordplay, and leaves it up to listeners to decipher their own meanings.

Isaiah Toothtaker’s newest album Illuminati Thug Mafia is available now via Machina Muerte/Alpha Pup.

Today, Tucson’s notorious jefe Isaiah Toothtaker unleashes his long awaited album Illuminati Thug Mafia through a partnership between his own Machina Muerte label and Alpha Pup Records. Convicted multiple felon and founder of the prestigious tattoo parlor STARING WITHOUT CARING, Isaiah’s 18-track album features MURS, Mestizo, HUMANSUIT, Zackey Force Funk, Lucky.I.Am, CRIME KILLZ, Lush One, Cadalack Ron, Rheteric, Alex Pathetic, and SerpDot and production from Mainframe (Johnson&Johnson), Jacob Safari (Wavves), CRIME KILLZ, Eligh (Living Legends), Kid Static, LouisahHH, Masque Anonymous, The Briefcase, and Nick Sena. Re-living interminable nightmares, lurid street tales, torture tactics, and haunting threats through rhyme and reason, Isaiah takes listeners on a vivid ride through his warped mind to bring to life one of the most colorful, creative, and hard-hitting albums of 2011. Welcome to the bass-heavy house of  horrors. 

For those not yet convinced of Isaiah’s intentions, he offers up a free tasty morsel with a downloadable mp3 of the haunting daymare “WTF You Say” featuring MURS to chew on. Following the screwed voice of famed Illuminist John Todd, enters Isaiah, half-laughing in disbelief, as he can’t believe what’s just been uttered. Driving hi-hats color Isaiah and MURS’ message, which comes in the form of warnings and threats to punks who lie and run their mouths. Meanwhile, synths deepen, grow more empty, and more shrill. Something seems wrong and something probably is. The reason why you know that something’s wrong is because Toothtaker wants you to know. Choose your words carefully.
