This track is what inspired this project.
While at the WindUP Space for a Baltimore Boom Bap Society show,
I told my friend how excited I was to do a Busta Rhymes verse for this
ATCQ tribute. He asked me if I had
any high energy songs like that. I paused and said, "Nah. I guess I don't."
His response was simple. "Well, you should make one."

I found myself pulling over on 695 to jot down the chorus later that night, then picking up my Squire Bass to get this melody out of my head. Then the RC-30 Loop pedal to lay out the skeleton. Then building with Wendel Patrick and crafting an EP.


Standing on stage giving all I've got to it.
Lyrics I distribute, administer to the populace.
Rock 2 It. Rock 2 It. Rock 2 It
