    For those of you that aren't familiar with all of Insight (The emcee's) work, here's a discograpy - He has 4 solo lyrical albums "The Blast Radius", "Targeting Zones", "Updated Software v2.5", and "The Maysun Project". He also has 4 instrumental albums "updated Software v2.5 bonus disc", "Insight Presents...", "Crooked Needle On A Square Record", and "Night Ship Delivery". He is also the emcee of the group Shinsight Trio (Insight, Shin-Ski & DJ RYOW), they have 3 albums "Shallow Nights, Blurry Moon", "Moonlight Sunrise", and "Somewhere Beyond The Moon". He is also the emcee of Y Society (Insight + Damu The Fudgemunk), who have one album. He is also SOLOPLEXUS, who is a supergroup formed of himself, lol. It's a concept album with 6 characters who he plays, each with their own style / voice. He is also part of another group called "ELECTRIC", and they have an album called "Life's A Struggle". He also released an album with Count Bass D called "The Risk Takers". Yes, i am a fan! lol

    Why does there always have to be contests about which artist belongs to a single name?They're honestly the most pointless arguments I've seen on last.fm, and those permeate the shoutboxes of popular artists like a disease....
