Edan putting it out again in 2023.

Edan got Insight, Percee P, Mr. Lif, and Dagha to perform. No, us neither.

Edan liking the mixing and the samples.

Edan also like funk, soul, James Marshall Hendrix. And Funkadelic. Probably.

Edan also psychedelicing.

Edan sounding like many other people but Edan having style and panache.

Edan also clever, and having way with words.

Edan happy when NME placed this at number 392 on the 500 greatest albums of all-time list and Fact at number 30 on the 100 best indie hip-hop records of all-time list.

Edan’s album only 35 minutes but having a lot going on.
