“The business of making and selling music is currently going through a revolution, and Sykophunk Productions aims to be a part of it.” I wrote this as part of my mission statement when I first decided to go legit as a label. A little over two years later, it’s still on the home page of sykophunk.com, and I can honestly say that I’m doing everything within my means to stick to it. I’ve always said that people getting my music for free is better than people not hearing it at all. At the same time, I have bills to pay. So here’s how I try to balance that out.

Currently I’m making free downloads available on Sykophunk Weekly. Every Friday I post a new song, and I will do this until my next album (called Mostly Recycled) drops on March 29, 2011. Also updated every Friday is a journal in which I write about the progress of the album and my other projects. So you can check in every week, see how the album’s coming along, and download a free song. Sometimes there will be a new video posted as well. When Mostly Recycled is released, that’s when I expect some of you to return the generosity and buy the album. And I know that some people prefer MP3s over CDs (or vice versa) and that money’s tight right now. With both of these things in mind, I will make the album available in multiple formats: digital download, physical CD, bonus tracks (both DL and CD), and a 2-disc set. So whatever your preference or budget is, there will be an option that’s right for you.

Sykophunk Weekly - free MP3 downloadsFor Mostly Recycled, I’m joining forces with some of the dopest underground producers in hip hop to create sick tracks that are still mostly rEvolutionary but also strangely catchy and sort of have a (dare I say it) commercial vibe. I want to put something out that carries my message but is also accessible to the masses, before I release another crazy, experimental album – Mostly Recycled is the one that might even catch some airplay. It’s still epic as phuk though, don’t get it twisted. Featured producers include Shadowville Productions, Anno Domini, Symphonic and Infidel beats – some of these guys have worked with artists like DZK and Jedi Mind Tricks, so you know it’s taking sykophunk to a whole new level! Can’t wait to share it with the world. March 29 is right around the corner… keep your third eye open.
