We've all experienced it before. One of our favorite emcees or groups is about to drop a new album. We get hyped about it as we think about the first album they released, which came out two years ago, but is still in heavy rotation on our iPod. Their first project had such an impact on us that we remember exactly where we were when we first listened to it. We've loved the songs they've recently featured on and now the moment is here. The new one is ready to drop. We can't wait to hear them spit over new beats and, in new ways, recapture the feeling we had when we first heard them. We didn't even listen to any of the previews that already came out because we want to hear the project as a whole for the very first time. It's Monday and we know that it will be available for download at midnight. Like a kid on Christmas morning, when midnight strikes, we rush to iTunes to download it, turn off our phone, run out to the car so we can play it in the best sound system we have, crank up the volume and drive around while we listen, fully prepared to hit rewind when necessary. And then the unthinkable happens: the emcee switched up his style! What's going on? The beats sound different. They're a talented group, so it's not completely wack, but what happened?

In 1999, at the age of twelve, Skrip sequenced his first hip-hop instrumental track using the 12 string guitar as a main melody and later that year opened up for California native T-Bone aka “Boney Soprano”.
From that time, with growth, maturity and hard work; we come to the release of his debut album "Becoming All Things" 7/31/11, following
