The title of the project is a reflection of my mindset as an artist. It was an idea that came to me that would become this record. I feel fortunate enough to live in an era of information that can be freely distributed and in essence “never die” something I’d like to do personally as an artist, which is release something that I can always look back on and say that I accomplished.
Misfit Yeager is the creator of the album art. It’s presented by the Midnight Mindstate, the hip hop collective who serves as the producer and engineer behind the record. The story behind the cover of the album relates to the concept behind the title. The image is a metaphorical representation of the idea that you’re the only person you can truly depend on and it’s up to you to get what you want out of life.
This project has been in production for about a year. It started when T-Low and Misfit hooked up and discovered their mutual passion for hip-hop and a genuine desire to create unique music.
This is an entirely D.I.Y. album and was recorded by the Mindstate in their home studio located in Thom Baum’s apartment. Principle recordings and mixes were done by Misfit Yeager and sent to Thom Baum to be mastered.
Principle production was by Misfit Yeager with co-production credits by Thom Baum on “Just Ballin'” and “Sick with a Flow”.

“Just Ballin” and “Sick with a Flow” are both tied for favorite track. “I can’t pick just one, for real…”
