Reuben's team says that the album was produced by Joe Baldridge, mastered by Richard Dodd, and features a few guest songwriters including Brandon Harris, Gary Burnette, Solomon Olds (Family Force 5), and Seth Earnest (his current drummer), with John co-writing or writing all of the tracks. The ten song album also features an appearance by Ben Folds' drummer who sings on a song called "Miserable Exaggeration."
Keep an eye out for a new animated music video for "Word Of Mouth."
The hip hop artist has been hard at work on a pilot for a potential new sitcom entitled The Professional Rapper. The artist released a newsletter today enlisting the help of fans to view the show's pilot online and vote for it on YouTube.com.
The following is John's letter to the fans...
"Hey Everybody, So you haven't heard from me in a bit. Well, I have an answer for that. I've been hiding away in the forest. I am a bad communicator. I have been a bad friend. I'm sorry. Forgive me please. I've been extremely busy working on some new stuff. I've been in the studio working on a new record that will be coming out shortly as well as something a little different. In November, me and a few friends got together to film what I like to call an "Altered Reality". You know as well as I do that Reality TV Shows are played out. So here's a fresh perspective. See my altered reality... "The Professional Rapper" ...not to be confused with the album Professional Rapper or reality at all for that matter. The real reality is that this show has the potentional to be turned into a tv show/movie/something else... the possibilities are endless. We've already been able to generate a lot of interest and this is where you can greatly help me out. Click Here To Watch "The Professional Rapper" and leave some good comments (only good comments!) and 5 star ratings. Bad comments and ratings are not accepted, criticism not welcomed, operators are on duty 24 hours a day to receive flattery, blind optimism and all forms of sucking up! Spread it around as much as possible. Watch it as many times as you can and send it to every one you know. If we get enough views than we get to make a show.
