This remix album revisits that seminal recording, and J. Sumbi ("Sunshine Men") has managed to paint an even more impressive backdrop for these lyrical prophets of prose aided by the use of today's technology. Version 2.0 is set to be the perfect companion to the Freestyle Fellowship's first group recording in 8 years, Temptations.
Formed in the late summer of 1991, the Freestyle Fellowship humbly evolved in a creatively limited hip-hop music environment on the West Coast (Los Angeles). Nurtured by the Goodlife Cafe's open mic Thursdays, this band of emcees, producers, and griots went on to influence the entire hip-hop world (incl. The Pharcyde, Volume 10, Jurassic 5) with their first release.
The Freestyle Fellowship is Aceyalone (Accepted Eclectic, Book of Human Language), Mikah 9 (Timetable, Haiku d'Etat), P.E.A.C.E. (Southern Fried Chicken, Nike Commercials), Self Jupiter (Hard Hat Area), J. Sumbi (All In All; producer for Meen Green, Ganjah K, and the H.S.D.), and MD Himself (All In All).
