Aleksander "EXILE" Manfredi has spent the last 15+ years building a career as a DJ/Producer/Musician. He makes up 1/2 of the group Emanon (additional accolades include producing tracks for the likes of Ghostface Killah, Mobb Deep, Jurssic 5, Aloe Blacc, Blu, etc.). Even though this is Exile’s first solo effort as an MC, he executes it like a veteran "rhymesayer". The secret to his rappin’ success lies in the truth of his rhymes. He raps about himself, real life experiences, true feelings, oddball humor & "medicinals". No smoke & mirrors needed because this is pure Hip-Hop. Exile relies solely on his skill, musicianship & creative ability when he lays down verses & production. The entire album was recorded on the Tascam 4 track (analog) recorder. An integral tool to the Underground Hip-Hop movement in the 80’s & 90’s because it provided a way for the users to record their demos or music straight to a ready to sell medium - the cassette tape. In many ways the Tascam 4 track is the predecessor to today’s D.I.Y. home recording studio movement. Press play & soak up the analog niceness.

**FCC on tracks 7 & 8. The rest of the CD is edited for the radio.
