Som hain far sjøl sa det: "Joddski og RSP er nordnorsk raps 2 største navn (og landsdelens største rappere reint fysisk). De to gamle erkefiendene er nå gode busser, og jobber med et album sammen under navnet Hålogalandslaget. Navnet er tatt fra den første låten de gjorde sammen, som var en remake av Karpe Diem sin “Vestkantsvartinga”."

Oter fra Tromsø, regnes av mange som den nye kongen av nord etter at tungtvann abdiserer. Både som soloartist og som en halvpart av Dobbel Dose (m/Svartepetter), lager han en bunkevis av varierte låter og beviser stadig sin allsidighet. På dagen er han en moderne slave i flyttebransjen, etter det går det i låtskriving, pils, billjard og chilling (i den rekkefølgen).
