According to Beat Fanatic HNIC Slopfunkdust this is how the upcoming “Beat Fanatic Vol. 2” is shaking thus far (according to him it’s not even finished yet). Take a look at this:

That lineup looks downright insane. If you don’t remember how ill “Beat Fanatic Vol. 1” was then I feel sorry for your mothers. We played that album for 6 months straight on the Scrunchface Show during it’s infancy. We need to get Slop on the show soon. Maybe even this Tuesday? Fuck it, why the hell not?
