After years as a trio and then a duo, Baldwin left Jedi Mind Tricks and Violence Begets Violence would be the first album without Stoupe production. Vinnie Paz stated in a blog on the JMT website that Stoupe had lacked interest in the group and decided to focus on other things in his career, such as his side groups, and that Stoupe would not be producing any of the tracks on the new JMT album.
Stoupe's first solo album, 'Decalogue' was released in 2009 on Babygrande records. It featured a mixture of underground and popular rappers (for instance M.O.P.) performing over Stoupe's productions. In June 2010 A Bright Cold Day was released on Enemy Soil. The album was a collaborative project between Stoupe and long-time associate Liz Fullerton, who together recorded under the name Dutch. Fullerton had previously contributed vocals to Jedi Mind Tricks' songs Death Messiah and Razorblade Salvation. Stoupe resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
