LIFE IS GOOD is the long-awaited successor to the untitled album, which featured the iconic closing track “N.I.G.G.E.R. (The Slave and The Master),” produced by DJ Toomp.  The track contained the provocative lyric, “They say we N-I-double-G-E-R/ We are, much more/ But still we choose to ignore the obvious/ Man, this history don’t acknowledge us/ We were scholars way before colleges…”   The album contained collaborations with producers Polow Da Don (“Hero”), DJ Green Lantern (“Black President”), 2007’s Grammy Award®-winning Producer Of The Year, Mark Ronson (“Fried Chicken” featuring Busta Rhymes), as well as Stic.Man from Dead Prez, Jay Electronica, Stargate, DJ Cool & Dre, and others.
