I got tons of shit going on right now. I got things in my life I’ve had a chance to control going bad and shit I can’t and never will be able to control staying bad or just not looking better than average. I’ve never been told I’m a bad guy and I honestly don’t think I’m a bad guy. Done my share…
Dotta is REAL.
We wanted to introduce you to our man, Nerd Ferguson. if you haven’t heard him yet, you should go ahead and download this remix so you can get acquainted with the sick flow from NYC.
Nerd Ferguson is the illest, man. We’ve been hip to his work from talking on Twitter. His style is just cold, the flow is impeccable. We’re proud to let y’all hear this cat on a record with US. He is US.
You gotta hear this cat and you gotta meet him, so let us put you in touch with one of the dopest cats we’ve had a chance to meet on this here mission we call ‘All Together For Us’.
You can listen to the REremix of ‘Hello?’ and download it on the player there, y’all.

I’m posting this over here cuz I try to keep it in the timeline on Twitter. I’m making an effort to keep everything neat and tidy and easy to get to once you get here. If you have been here for a while, you may have missed it. If you’re new, I wanna get you laced up with the whole team.
@ATFU_ is a group of seven cats that got together to hustle this thang called ‘music’. We collaborate, promote and release our projects through our blog, ‘#ATFU, The Tornado Alley on Tumblr. Each member of the crew is an artist in their own right, with many members multitasking on production and DJ work. We do everything we can in-house and when we outsource, whoever we are working with is basically one of ‘US’, meaning that we will be supporting their projects just as they did ours.
We decided that being an example of the strength of unity was beneficial to all of us.
We’re all dedicated to the idea that hip-hop is still the most potent cultural movement in the world. We’re dedicated to the craft and the culture of hip-hop, with no intentions of playing ourselves out for the sake of ‘getting on’. We will be uniquely ‘US’, for as long as you know ‘US’.
If you click on the picture, it will take you to a page where everything we have released on the blog is available. There are over 30 releases on the page and we keep it updated as well as possible. Go on over there and get ya some tunage. That’s why it’s there.
“…and they’ll find us…”

Brothers and sisters of #ATFU,
I would like to present to you the long awaited album ‘Born To Fly’. Available by clicking the picture or here. It is a “Name Your Price” album for the moment. This album is an audio look inside of my life as a professional basketball player & artist. The album has an outside the box feel from a musical stand point. I hope you all enjoy listening to ‘Born To Fly’ as much as I enjoyed making it. Thank you to everyone that was apart of the process of making ‘Born To Fly’ happen. Now go tell a friend and tell them to tell their friend. Ha!
Yours In Flight,
HERE IT IS!
E Dot Spencer drops his magnum opus, ‘Born To Fly’ just as he undertakes a new phase of his professional hoops life and heads overseas to China. Too awesome for words.

#ATFU, THAT’S WHAT WE HOLL’IN BOUT…
#ATFU Live. Four clips and links for #TPATH and #SummerTimeFling in here, man.
#ATFU #BornToFly #TheTinkerer #Playlists #ReleaseDate
Here we are.
E Dot Spencer has been working really hard on ‘Born To Fly’ AND of course, the hoop game. He leaves for China on the 6th of September to continue furthering his career as a professional hooper.
Yes, “China”. Yes, “professional”. ‘Dotta The Globetrotta’, we told you.
Before he leaves though, we will release his epic album, ‘Born To Fly’ here on Sept. 3. Dotta said he wanted to be in the States to celebrate this release with everybody, so the 3rd it is. Yes, we know it’s a Saturday and often ‘release-day’ is Tuesday, but we make our own rules.
#Also, #AsWell, Rusty Redenbacher is prepping the release of his first self-produced album, ‘The Tinkerer’. Produced, written, recorded, and mixed by Rusty in a week between the 9th of August and the 16th, it’s definitely a ‘different’ sounding project from Redenbach. Claiming everything from Nikolai Tesla to Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry as influences, ‘The Tinkerer’ is an album that should give fans of forward-thinking hip-hop and dusted grooves something to talk about.
Now that you have an idea of what we’re sounding like, here’s the playlists for both these albums…

Oh yeah… 9/3/11 - #BORNTOFLY…
…and #TheTinkerer is coming after that….we’re rollin
#ATFU #TheTinkerer #SnippetsClipTwo
Here’s another snippet tape from ‘The Tinkerer’. I just crafted this because I am mad excited about this album and before I start dropping full tracks, I want you to get a feel for how the album grooves. I gotta say this, everyone I have played a few tracks for says “Man, this is different…”, so I’m really geeked about what I did here, yo.
‘The Tinkerer’ just happened, man. It was an amazing experience putting this thing together, which is how I feel about everything #ATFU affiliated. I just love making this music and what’s great about ‘The Tinkerer’ is the full budget for recording is about $29.99. (bought a spindle of CD’s to make it happen…I’ll tell you about my production process for this album later.)
DIY, BABY…you ain’t gotta have all them pretty mics and fancy lit-up gadgets to make music. You gotta have grit, ideas, inspiration, and some soul don’t hurt.
Watch #ATFU’s Tumblr tomorrow.
