He is also associated with the Demigodz and the Get Busy Committee, as well as being the founder of SpyTech Records, which is located in Reseda, Los Angeles, and the Cheapshot's bar, which is located in Long Beach, California.

Space Invadas[edit]

Space Invadas is a joke group Cheapshot made with his friend DJ Jester in college when they were bored. Unlike in most of his Styles of Beyond material, which is mostly production, Cheapshot provides vocals for some of his own tracks (including Trades of the Tools, which is a parody of the Fort Minor Militia track Tools of the Trade, which incidentally, he provides parody vocals for also).

"Cheapshot's" The Bar[edit]

In February, 2007, Cheapshot, along with his brother Jordan Fisher, opened a bar, called Cheapshot's. It was a lifelong dream of the both of them to open a bar, and after several years of successful investment by Jordan, they both purchased a 2,200-square-foot (200 m2) building. After renovating it, they opened it for a test-run in May 2007. It was a success, and is now officially open. The bar has an exclusive collection of signature drinks, including the Ryu Shot, which is a reference to Cheapshot's fellow band-mate, Ryu Maginn, and a Cheapshot Mojito, named after Cheapshot himself. The bar has since changed owners and is now called "The Stache". It is located at 941 E. 4th Street in Long Beach, across from The V Room.
