The Cookbook, a mixtape to be released November 2, 2009, features Kansas City artists including The Popper, Kutt Calhoun, Krizz Kaliko, Chain Gang Parolees, Ron Ron, Big Scoob, and, of course, Snug Brim. It will be released online only, through all major online distributors.
Some songs on the mixtape revisit a theme close to Skatterman’s heart: that of fatherhood, and the fathers who are missing in action. To know Skatterman is to understand that his children come first. His own experience of growing up without a father figure when it mattered most — his teenage years — is gasoline on the flame beneath his lyrics.
March 16, 2010, will mark the debut of Skatterman’s first solo, studio album, Self Made, featuring Paul Wall, Too $hort, Jim Jones, Bun B, and Tech N9ne.
Skatterman calls the project “pissed-off.”
“It’s about animosity,” Skatterman says. “It’s about the people who think they got me where I am, when it was me.” Expect the rapper to pull no punches. Given the freedom to speak entirely for himself, Skatterman plans to immortalize on wax his frustrations with the music business, false friends and broken promises. A track called “Loyalty and Betrayal” expresses Skatterman’s feelings on former label Strange Music, among other themes.
