Notes

The combined forces of rapper Khujo Goodie (Goodie Mob, Dungeon Family & long-time Outkast collaborator) with producer Jneiro Jarel.

This debut album mixes golden-era 90s NYC, Crunk and Snap beats with psychedelic rock influences (including backing vocals from TV on the Radio‘s Tunde Adebimpe) all with a Dirty Southern twist.

Album artwork by James Jarvis opens up to form a mini-poster.
