[PROD BY ANT]http://jakeone.com/news/2003http://jakeone.com/news/2003<p>Self Destruction only had one official 12” single for the album, “Ice Cold” . This was around the time when 12” singles were starting to lose a bit of steam and the focus was shifting more toward full-lengths and digital releases. However, there was a second single for the album planned. “Overthrow”, an album favorite for many, was planned to be the A-side with “Everyday Shit” on the B-side. There was also a plan to include an unreleased ANT produced track on the single as well. When we first stumbled upon the master for this single, it didn’t have a track listing, so there was some debate about its origins, specifically the title. Through that process, it was dubbed “What Can I Do, Where Can I Turn?”, based off the hook. However, further discussion with I Self Devine revealed that this...</p>RhymesayersTue, 28 Jul 2015 11:00:00 -0500Prof - New Video and Liability Album - Pre Order Now!http://jakeone.com/news/2002http://jakeone.com/news/2002<p align="center"><strong>Prof Announces New Album!</strong><br /><strong><em> Liability: Dropping 10/16</em></strong><br /><strong> Pre Order Now!</strong><br /><br /></p><p><br /><strong> Prof</strong>, the newest signee to Rhymesayers Entertainment, is already a legend on the southside of Minneapolis. With three self-released albums, plus three additional mixtapes of exclusive material already under his belt, it should come as no surprise he's been tirelessly making music for over a decade. While he's continued to develop over that time, both musically and artistically, he's also fine-tuned his live show to such a spectacle that he's undeniably made a lasting impression on the scene. As an entertainer, Prof shows incredible diversity. Whether artistically, or characteristically, he purposefully maneuvers between the parallels of inconceivable experiences and extraordinary fantasies.

In fact, just last week he confirmed, “I recorded about 70 songs...” This is testament to I Self’s prolific nature. He’s driven to write, create and convey his messages. It’s a flow of expression that he can’t easily turn off.</p><p>That said, “Self Destruction” wasn’t the first time he created a wealth of music that the world didn’t get to hear. He has unreleased albums, songs, and projects that he's continued to amass since the mid ’90s.

Previously, the two worked together on Aesop Rock's <em>Skelethon</em> album, as well as Aesop's butchered remix of "Bosico", from Grimace Federation's <em>On Velvet</em> album, and more. <br /><br /> Grimace Federation's sonic collages create a symphonic, cinematic, and immense sound. The band’s musical foundation could be discovered in the grooves of records from post-rock legends such as Jaga Jazzist, Tortoise, and Stereolab, while latter day influences, like Mogwai and Black Sabbath, and a lifetime of collecting obscure underground hip-hop records notably seep into their symbiotic chaos. <br /><br /><strong><em> The Measure In Mixture</em></strong> combines spastic kr...</p>RhymesayersFri, 19 Jun 2015 10:31:00 -0500Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Boom Bap Project's Reprogramhttp://jakeone.com/news/1994http://jakeone.com/news/1994<p>Ten years ago, on June 21st 2005, Rhymesayers Entertainment released <strong>Boom Bap Project</strong>'s <strong><em>Reprogram</em></strong>.
