Asphalt: ASP0004 ft. Asphalt Poetry
In search of another way to break into the music scene he sold his equipment and accepted an offer to travel to Sweden. There he made a living hustling dj gigs and working (under-the-table) as a studio hand. In 1999 Imperial returned to California and prepared for a permanent move back to Europe. Before leaving though he was determined to record one last Asphalt Poetry record with EJ.
After a busy year the two finally got to work. Imperial insisted they write a back-to-back rhyme together about their experiences away from the studio. They met at a local brewery and drunk pints of dark beer until they were done. The finished rhyme was entitled "The Break". The other 3 tracks were done in the same style as their first 2 ep's, battle rhymes, raw cuts, and dirty beats. The ep would take almost 2 years to make and was finally completed in 2003. Imperial then packed up and moved to Sweden. That was the last time they recorded. Their third EP never made it to vinyl until now!
