On February 15, 2000, I released my debut album The Book of Daniel on One
Rock Records - a label I co-founded with my crew, Monolith. Approximately
three years in the making, (13 if you counted every year since I started
rapping), this album marked the fruition of a childhood dream.
Spawning three videos in "Corrida De Toros"
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcSkvVXMVf8), "Margerine" and "Baahd!",
The Book of Daniel taught me a huge lesson in what it is to be an
independent hip-hop artist from Toronto. It's HARD!
And while the struggle continues ten years later, I'm thankful for the
road that The Book of Daniel helped pave for my future projects. It
remains a heralded project in the history of Canadian hip-hop as its
devotion to lyrical dominance was a focal point.
To commemorate the 10 Year Anniversary of The Book of Daniel, a brand new
mixtape will be released shortly. In the meantime, you may purchase the
original album - either CD or MP3 - for only $9.99 by clicking on the

ran out of gas, making me late for my session at noon
-The mastering session took 10 hours to complete
