Hip-hop and hockey converge nicely in the just released promo-only, free nine-track EP ("FreEP") Enter Tha 63 Chambahs which is a hockey themed homage appropriating the mighty Wu Tang Clan  recorded by Akrobatik upon request by Boston Bruins star Brad Marchand. The Massachusetts hip-hop artist, who hails from Boston's Dorchester neighborhood , recently recorded the EP for the ever-popular Boston Bruin's left winger Brad Marchand whose nickname is Noseface Killah and who often calls his teammates "The Bru-Tang Clan."

As fans of professional ice hockey already know in a period of just 18 months Brad Marchand has won a Stanley Cup and become quite a favorite among Boston hockey fans. These fans appreciate Marchand's often self-effacing humor and the fact that he jokingly calls himself  "Noseface Killah" - a name that has taken off and led to this hip-hop one off project which is actually a marketing tool to promote sports the sports star's new line of gear been made by the The Boston Sports Apparel Company.

The title of Enter Tha 63 Chambahs (3 skits and 6 songs with Akrobatik rhyming over Wu Tang instrumentals), is a play on both the Wu Tang album title (Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)) and the fact that Marchand's jersey number is 63.  To download for free the Enter Tha 63 Chambahs EP by Akrobatik aka The Bru-Tang Clan, which features such tracks as  “Bru-Tang Clan Ain’t Nothing To Puck Wit” and “Protect Ya Net”  click here.
