That fall, I quickly banged out my first album with the generous help of the Wounds crew, Grand Buffet, Plural, Dogg and Pony, Zach Poff and Rob Girardi. I had arrived at a powerful style, and the Wounds Team producers had done so as well. Growth is exponential at that age, and we all knew a lot more than we did the year before.
Dogg and Pony sprung for Frankford Wayne (who had mastered MC Lyte, Kool G Rap and countless others) to master the record. Of all my albums, the one with the most high-end mastering is the one where the vocals were recorded on a TASCAM eight track. I couldn’t have been more happy with the end result.
