Khadafi, Sunz of Man, Aesop Rock and others.

"I learned how to make albums...the whole process of putting

a record together directly from the RZA and Schott Free (Loud Records),"

says Dreddy. "It feels good to finally have my own situation to bring my

conceptual thinking to Hip-Hop and I look forward to working with BabyGrande

to make it happen."

The second release will be a solo album from occasional Wu producer

Bronze Nazareth, which will be followed up by a release from La The Darkman/Embassy


Recently, Kruger has done A&R work for Masta Killa and on
