The majority of the album was produced by Evidence and his bandmate in Dilated Peoples, DJ Babu, Sid Roams and The Alchemist. Other producers include DJ Khalil, Jake One.

Singles[edit]

Two singles were released from the album: "Mr. Slow Flow" and "All Said & Done". Neither charted, but the album did spend one week on the Billboard Independent Albums chart, at number 42.[7] Music videos were created for "Mr. Slow Flow" and "Chase the Clouds Away".

Trivia[edit]

The instrumental to "Mr. Slow Flow", produced by Sid Roams, was used by rapper Drake on the track "Asthma Team" on his mixtape Comeback Season.

During "Mr. Slow Flow", Evidence possibly drew inspiration for the name of his 2nd full length album Cats and Dogs with the line "umbrellas up, these cats are dogs" at 3:00 into the track.
