Just Add Water followed in 2006 (32,000 units scanned), described by Allmusic: "Just Add Water may not be the complete handbook to being a pimp, but it certainly is a kind of missive on the life of Suga Free." He followed with 2007's "Sunday School", 2008's "Smell My Finger" and "HI Power Pimpin" in 2009. In 2010 Suga Free was featured on tracks with Kurupt, E-40, Murs and 9th Wonder.

Video: The Academy f/ Kurupt, Raekwon - "Samaryda"
Courtesy Matt B.
2011 marks the return of the Compilation like you have never experienced it before, with the birth of The Academy, a bi-coastal merging of the minds that provides an undeniable unity long since forgotten amidst the landscape of popularized feuds, beefs, and unfounded media hypes. "The Academy" will be released on 9-13-2011 courtesy of Terminal 3/Penagon/Bonzi Records.
The material is 100% new, the collaborations are out of this world, and the production value makes "The Academy" the new standard in Hip-Hop excellence. Over 55 MC's representing the realms of "Major" and "Independent", "New & Old School, "Legendary" and "Soon to Be" make "The Academy" release a shoe in for fans to feed their need for a superior quality product from a vast makeup of the artists they love and respect in a landscape where subpar albums and scaled back budgets have become the norm.
Executive produced by Kurupt, fans can expect "Academy" appearances from such notable talents as Raekwon, Jadakiss, Kurupt, Pete Rock, Royce Da 5'9", Redman, Styles P, Crooked I, Sean Price, Method Man, Canibus, LA the Darkman, Keith Murray, Planet Asia, Rass Kass, K-Solo, LA The Darkman, Billy Danze (M.O.P.), Pack FM, Pete Rock, Keith Murray, Chino XL and many more all backed by the breakthrough soundscapes of Terminal 3 Productions (who previously oversaw projects from ("Wu-Tang Meets the Indie Culture", "The Four Horsemen" and "The Undergods").
