Yuri Lowenthal, voice actor, producer, and screenwriter, has just announced via Twitter that on August 19, he and Clay Dietz will be dropping a full-length Naruto-themed hip hop record titled Fire Style. Lowenthal teases that this record will include "MANY guest stars from the English cast," which he is also notably a part of.

Lowenthal has not announced where the record will be dropped or through what platform, but fans are already excited about the project. While we still don't have much information to go on, it is pretty exciting to hear that there will be participation from other members of the English cast. There's something special about creators staying involved in the projects of their pasts.

Yuri Lowenthal is best known for his role voicing Sasuke Uchiha on the English cast of Naruto, as well as teenage Ben Tennyson in Ben 10, the Prince in Ubisoft's Prince of Persia and Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Insomniac Games' Marvel's Spider-Man. Lowenthal, alongside his wife Tara Platt, runs Monkey King Productions, which has produced feature films (Con Artists, Tumbling After) and web series (Shelf Life) aimed towards nerd-culture fan-based audiences.
