Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
My second solo hip hop album The Rift. This was a great learning experience in not only MCing/lyric-writing but also beat-making and music production. I had a ton of outtakes from this album that I cut in order to raise the overall quality which is something I wouldn't have been even in the mind-state to contemplate during the making of the first album. I think it is interesting when you listen to them back to back and you can really hear the progression and maturity from one to the next. But at the same time there is the rawness of the first that I probably will never get back. As long as I keep the bar high for myself then I think I will be happy with my music going forward.
What are you working on at the moment?
Soooo many things!!!

Helping you produce a "physical" (by which I mean standalone like a song you can burn onto CD) copy of whatever is in your head.

Could be 20 minutes, could be a day project, or it could have been on the shelf for 3 years then just completed yesterday afternoon.
