When was the last time you heard a hip-hop album that left you feeling truly optimistic, uplifted and refreshed? Noodle the Innocent Child‘s love of life is infectious and radiates throughout his forthcoming release It’s a Noo Day. Combining his positive lyrics with an impeccable delivery and high-quality production, the album is a real tribute to this talented Peekskill emcee’s abilities and potential.

The release is heralded by two singles: the sizzling street anthem Ride Wit Me and the feel-good, R&B-flavored Celebrate Life (featuring Ella Lazel), both of which give a perfect introduction to this exciting project, leaving the hip-hop community and fans of good music alike anticipating Noodle’s next move.

Having graced countless stages with his signature captivating live performances and supported hip-hop greats like KRS-One, Joe Budden, and Immortal Technique, Noodle has had a rare opportunity to explore both the underground and the mainstream sides of the rap game, which becomes immediately clear when listening to It’s a Noo Day. The release takes a journey through the many diverse aspects of the genre and incorporates elements from a plethora of musical styles, with each only contributing to and complimenting Noodle’s own unique brand of optimistic, inspirational hip-hop.

Recorded at DaMan Studios in New York City, It’s a Noo Day is Noodle’s eagerly awaited debut studio release. The project also showcases a number of gifted artists, including Ella Lazel, Big Snuff, LaRue, Feature, Cyph-Low, R. Haze, and Young Guito. Produced largely by fellow Peekskill native M-Nasty, the release also features production from Cory G, New Millennium and Anno Domini Beats. Uplifting, insightful and feel-good music at its best, this forthcoming release certainly marks a Noo Day for Hip Hop.
