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).
