MeccaGodZilla – ERROARS 2.2: Metal Sakura
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
In typical Kaiju fashion, MeccaGodZilla returns with sonic alchemy after a 3 year hiatus to produce the new instrumental album titled “ERROARS 2.2: Metal Sakura.” Possibly part of the epic rebirth of Long Island’s raw Hip-Hop/Rap sound, this new seventeen-track LP emanates a global fusion of cultural elements and inspiration.
Influenced by a myriad of experiences while of living in Tokyo, NYC and Long Island, MeccaGodZilla shares a wide palette of musical expression peaking into the roots of Rap, R&B, Experimental, Dancehall and House music.
After the first listen international recording artist and 3X VIMA Award winner Masia One states musically:
“I see a wilting cherry blossom, and when its dipped in metal instead of incinerating it becomes stronger and more beautiful… the metal doesn’t cause them (the blossoms) to fall hard, they are still organic and beautifully graceful, but slowly forming metallic shells…”
Driven by the goal to keep this album 100% Strong Island vibes, MeccaGodZilla foraged locally recruiting Freeport’s very own Last Words and Buhrnum Wood, two MC’s known for extraordinary freestyle ability, to engage in a lyrical joust on the closing feature song “Laundromat Combat.”
“It’s pretty ill to think about the following idea. Long Island, NY has arguably some of the best, most skilled and diverse artists in rap history, notably Rakim, De La Soul, Leaders Of the New School, Prince Paul, Public Enemy, EPMD, Keith Murray, KMD, Roc Marciano and lots more. I aspire to rep for the place I was raised and provide more of that Long Island Sound to the world.”

Frequent visits to Japan have afforded him with the opportunity to work with some of the world’s top brands, notably NIKE, Armani Exchange, Capcom, MSGR, EOps Tech, Applebum, and Mural. Musically MeccaGodZilla’s sound is like mixing Talib’s rhyme influence with RZA’s beat making tips and the Dalai Lama’s tips on being a better human being.
Musically, he has collaborated with Duck Down Music’s Sean Price, Planet Asia, Eric Bobo of Cypress Hill, Sick Team of Jazzy Sport Japan while receiving over 150,000 downloads for American Monsta: The Jay-Z American Gangster Remix Album by way of mininova. MeccaGodZilla also featured in Black Enterprise Magazine for completing a successful Kickstarter campaign resulting in the “Hip Hopera” style album titled “PERFECT 天” the RYU BLACK Musical.
After leaving his former rap crew in 2008, MeccaGodZilla went back to the path of activism doing events and projects for charity with Domo Arigato, Love Save Japan, New York’s Japanese American Lions Club, Bond And Justice, The Japan Society, Ovarian Cancer Canada and more.
