MYSELF's ambitious and groundbreaking, independently released debut album Protest In Disguise is out on his own boutique label Couture Music Wear, Inc. MYSELF's 'Protest In Disguise' was recorded at the legendary Chung King Studios formerly Chung King House of Metal. Chung King has been the home for many DEF JAM classic recordings (Rick Rubin, RUN DMC, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, LL Cool J). MYSELF can now be added to this A-list of album projects.
'Protest In Disguise' contains (16) turbo supercharged high octane tracks. The lead single "God is so Funky" is a soulful melodic/hypnotic catchy song that rocks the dancefloor!! "Where We Going? Is a blues entrenched worldbeat jam that incorporates the essentials of a modern day Bob Dylan/Bob Marley cry for change. "Baby..You Drive Me Crazy" picks up where the party let's off..it's a fast & furious punk hip hop adrenaline anthem that delves into the hardships of relationships. 'Protest in Disguise' showcases musical dexterity and lyrical complexity...evoking MYSELF's strength as a tremendous songwriter, producer and lyricist. The songs on 'Protest In Disguise' burn slowly and ignites intensely, encouraging the listener to "Keep The Fire Burnin'."
