He believes that songs can do more than keep a non issue dialog over some hot beat. In bringing balance to the music , its a way to expand the possibilities in doing it for longevity purpose as well as saying something very needed and important. This is history why can't hip hop document it as well as being part. Also known as Whitfield Payne , Mr EXEK has produced tracks on the CREW GRRL ORDER album, the upcoming SHEsquad album, and his DJ LORD based track ' Check What You Listening To' off 2005s NEW WHIRL ODOR by PUBLIC ENEMY.
