“Longtime friend and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame artist Chuck D suggested to Spyder D that he continue to record because, like himself, there is still plenty more artistry and creativity to unleash upon the public and younger generation of rappers. In this new release, Spyder D once again combines the rare ability to be a totally self contained entity by writing, producing, engineering and mixing the recording titled "Only I", a funky, low tempo head nodder that seems to frown upon artists that don't write their own lyrics or produce their own music. The usually low key music impresario seems a little agitated on this cut as he's normally not known for much profanity in his recordings. ("I been sampled by the best including DJ Hollywood & Dr. Dre You don't believe me? Better check Google Play Or Spotify, How hot am I? Beats stay on fleek/My s**t stay dope in the street"”
“Spyder D, who wrote and produced the single "I Hate Being Black", the controversial title off of his "Spyder D's Greatest Skits Vol. 1" album, said, "I am absolutely thrilled with the video scenes", and, "could not wait to see the finished product".”
"Who devised this unwritten rule, that in Hip Hop, some unseen authority dictates to the streets, this person is over with, and these new set of people are what's happening? Only in Hip Hop. A conversation with Chuck D kept me from putting myself out to pasture", recalls Spyder.
“This deal allows me to continue my crusade to help the independent artists, as I have been doing my entire career.-Spyder D”
