Impotent Mindfuck

Album Background

Impotent Mindfuck came about after nearly 3 years of open mics, college performances, and bedroom freestyles. Prior to this album, Memphis Reigns and I had accumulated nearly 20 tracks of “practice” material that would be the foundation for our first “real” album. What started out as something we did to take the edge off the education system eventually became an obsession. Once the props started coming, it only felt natural to take the next step.

At around the same time, my beatmaking skills had improved and the quality resembled that of something you’d find for sale slanged outta someone’s backpack at a hip hop show. Without musical training, I taught myself the art of sampling loops and chopping up drum breaks. The beats were Memph-approved and the talks of a collaboration album eventually turned into action.

Using cheap, minimal, equipment in a makeshift studio that used stacked books as a mic stand, along with a voracious appetite to flip tongue twisted rhymes, we cranked out this album within a span of a few months.
