Since parting ways with the Anticon collective he helped found, Sole has continued to work the Skyrider Band. The Denver, Colorado-based emcee/singer and his band are planning Hello Cruel World on July 19. The Fake Four Inc. release is Sole's fourth with Skyrider.

Guests on the project include Lil B, Isaiah Toothtaker and onetime Anticon artist Sage Francis.
