    yo, from the people under the stairs forum, straight from the mouth of thes : "I am working on an album right now titled "Wonderful Radio".. it is all live, but done in a way that incorporates music from the past present and future. It's kind of hard to explain, but basically i wanted to realize my dream of being a producer in the old school sense and not just a guy sitting around with a sampler and a bunch of records. So we have a huge cast involved. I;m in and out of all my favorite studios in LA here, tracking drums in one, piano in another, etc. It's awesome and it is really exciting for me. I feel like axelrod. I will be rapping on it in parts and parts will be instrumental..other parts will have old school dudes singing on it.. we'll see. it's ill. It should come up this summer. "
