#LOWER snippets. #ATFU
I’ve been in some kinda zone and feel pretty good about how everything is coming together musically.
I wanted to share some of what will be the follow-up album to ‘The Tinkerer’.
LOWER, baby…we’ll talk more when the time is right…
The best way I can illustrate Big’s impact on the game to you is with his own words…
…spoken by the “next big thing”…
Putting this out there for y’all that don’t remember it. It showed up on mixed tapes and was really “provocative…gets the people going!” It’s a buncha examples of Jay ‘quoting’ Biggie lyrics with Biggie’s originals immediately afterwards…for SIX MINUTES.
The innanetz hadn’t gone as crazy as they are now yet when this first hit the streets. I don’t even remember who put it together. it caused some controversy back in the day. Now, of course, biting is the thing to do and no one thinks twice about it, but there was a time where if you said a rhyme that someone else said, you looked like an asshole…and if you KEPT doing it, you looked like a thief.
Question; if Jay was “bigging up his brother” by chewing up his lines one by one, did he give Big or Big’s family songwriting credit/publishing/royalties behind ANY of the examples you will hear here? I really have no idea, but I would think THAT would be a fitting tribute. That’s just me tho..
Don’t get me wrong; Jay is one of the greats and honestly, I never felt like he blatantly plagiarized Biggie…but there are some times when I did feel like this..”Bruh, please stop with the Biggie lines.”
#RIPBIG tho. Consider this more of a history lesson than a scolding of Jay on the anniversary of Big’s death. That ain’t what this post is about. This is about Big’s true impact on the game, as heard through the voice of a dude who’s been on top of it damn near since Big left this mortal coil.
I’m bigging up my brother.
Me and the homie DeFakto teamed up for what seems to be (one of) the most popular song(s) on the whole album. Produced by Pat Preezy!

Lil Jon meets #TheTinkerer
Peep the blend. It’s downloadable, if ya dig it.
The instrumental is from my remix of ‘Speak Monster Speak’ from ‘The Tinkerer’, which is available now on the ‘Speak Monster Speak EP’, a free download on my Bandcamp page.
The acapella to ‘Speak Monster Speak’ is included on the EP (Evolving Project)
You make a fly remix of it, I add it to the project.
#ATFU AND YOU TOO.

‘EP’ equals ‘Evolving Project’. Continue reading, please…
Click the pic and you’ll be able to download the first four tracks; a remix of ‘Speak
As I receive more remixes of ‘Speak Monster Speak’, I will add them to this album/project. This is a continuing study of evolution AND creation.
I have placed the ‘Speak Monster Speak’ acapella on this album with the hopes that producers, remixers, DJ’s, and fellow Tinkerers download it and do whatever it is they see fit to make it their own. The first one from the mighty @Defame1982 is included and it is indeed, a monster. Please add on.
I’m very interested in hearing what people create along with me. If you feel like you have made something you’d like me to hear, my Twitter is @RustyMK2. Talk to me, if we aren’t talking already.
…and here’s a link to go to the Daddy Real website to order the CD
The crew is #ATFU and so is the plan.

Thanks, have fun with this and holler back.

#AddOnRemix #TheTinkerer #ATFU
This is a remix from a project that I plan to release at some point.
Here’s the original version for your own comparison and contrast.
Rusty Redenbacher (#ATFU) - ‘Add On, Part 2’ (Youtube)
I was thinking I would do a remix project of some tunes from ‘The Tinkerer’. I’ve remixes of ‘Speak Monster Speak’ and ‘Add On’ done for a while. I started on one for ‘The Funk’ which eventually became a new song and led to me crafting about 17 more.
As it stands right now, I have about 20 tracks that could be considered for a follow-up to ‘The Tinkerer’. Once I realized I was in a zone again in terms of creativity, I just kept going. The working title for this album is ‘Lower’, inspired by my favorite David Bowie album, ‘Low’.
I plan on forging ahead with more new music and still may include these remixes on ‘Lower’. I wanted to share this with you to let you know that the work never stops for me, it’s feeling pretty good and I appreciate your interest. If you dig it you can download it.
The original versions of ‘Add On’ (Parts 1,2, and 3) appear on ‘The Tinkerer’, which is available on iTunes, wherever you buy digital music and in your favorite independent #Naptown record-stores. You can order the CD at DADDYREAL.COM

My man, @hotmixprincejay, just uploaded a BUNNNNNNCHA clips from ‘The Tinkerer’ album release party. Check out Sleeper Cell, Grey Granite, Mr. Kinetik & Eratic, and myself JAMMIN…
Hit the link, he’s got clips of EVERYBODY. #NAPTOWN groovin, man.
#ATFU and PRINCE JAY TOO.
We’re making some noise. Thanks to @KevinNottingham for featuring the ‘Iron Man Monster Factory’ video. That’s dope.
Album Tuesday, man. ‘The Tinkerer’ this Tuesday!
#ATFU #TheMinion #Royalty
I really believe every Prince fan should hear this song. I wrote it for ‘The Tinkerer’, but it didn’t really fit what the concept of the album became, so I placed it on a free EP instead. I refused to let it go to waste, man.
Give it a listen. If you dig this one, here’s the link to ‘The Minion’, the free EP it’s on. Download away!
‘The Tinkerer’ release party is tomorrow! The album is EVERYWHERE on Tuesday! #ATFU
