    the sp1200 is made by E-MU

    Gensu Dean is one of the illest producers ever to flip joints on a Emu SP-1200 and I'm really happy to see he's getting his shine, it's been a long time coming and now the world will know how NICE he is.

    Looks dope to me. I'll definitely check it out.

    This project is gonna flop. No one is looking for this album to drop. This guy is just wasting his time and money with this shit. If I was him, I'd find a new line of work. The only way this guy can get his paper up is if he produces for Wayne and Nicki.

    As someone close to this project who's already heard it, it's very, very good. The beats, the rhymes and all the other elements blend to create an album that feels like yesterday Hip Hop but relevant -and much needed- in today's climate. With the support of Mello Music Group, it's a great partnership that fans will appreciate. Peace and GOD BLESS
