Lil’ Ugly Mane is a rapper/producer from Virginia whose Three 6 Mafia-influenced sound overtook SpaceGhostPurrp’s popularity in 2012. That was when LUM released Mista Thug Isolation, his tape from 2012 that quickly morphed into something of a cult favorite, especially because he’s been withdrawn from music as a whole. He doesn’t have a Twitter, he stopped updating his Facebook in September of last year, and he has almost completely stopped releasing music, save for a wandering leak here or an out-of-the-blue commercial there.
Now, however, something huge seems to be in the works for Lil’ Ugly Mane and his fans. The talent collective Ormolycka, which has re-released different editions of Mista Thug Isolation in past years, has announced pricing for the Lil’ Ugly Mane Anthology Box Set ($175). Back in August, Ormolycka detailed what the Box Set would contain:
2 LPS OF BRAND NEW UNRELEASED MATERIAL.
ONE OF SAID RELEASES BEING A BRAND NEW FULL ON UGLY / SHAWN KEMP CRUSHER.
THE OTHER A SURPRISE COLLABORATION FULL OF SECRET(S).
1 LP COMPILING ALL OF THE SINGLES.
1 LP EDITION OF PLAYAZ CIRCLE.
AS WELL AS 4 CASSETTES
1 EDITION OF THE NEW LP ON CASSETTE.
1 EDITION OF THE OTHER NEW LP ON CASSETTE.
A NEW EDITION OF MISTA THUG ISOLATION ON CASSETTE.
A CASSETTE OF INSTRUMENTALS, ODDITIES, WHATEVER THE FUCK FITS.
Now that pricing has also been announced, it looks like this box set is actually happening. Lil’ Ugly Mane has apparently been working on the box set for a long time, so this is exciting news to anyone who’s heard his fantastic work. We’ll keep you updated with more details as we find out more.
