Earlier this year, Disturbing the Peace’s founding member I-20 and Madison, Wisconsin producer/DJ Pain 1 decided to link up, seemingly out of nowhere, to work on a collaborative project under their designated title H.T.M, or Heroes To Most.
To many, including yours truly, it came as a surprise of sorts, considering the last time we heard from the Decatur, Georgia emcee with the distinctive baritone was in 2013, when he released his seventh mixtape, The Amphetamine Manifesto: Part Two.
The Heroes To Most campaign kicked off in early June when the duo leaked their first single, “Hard To Find” featuring rap leviathan Royce Da 5’9″, and nearly every week following, H.T.M blessed us with new music — whether it was new loosies featuring Fred the Godson, Cory Gunz and The Heatmakerz, Cormega and Buckwild or singles: “Banksy” and the hard-as-nails “U.A.F.N.”
Following a weeks push back, I-20 and DJ Pain 1 finally debut their first EP together: The Drawing Board featuring Royce Da 5’9″, Ron Browz, Memory and Rickaby.
