For those of you who are familiar with L.As Glitch Mob Crew, you would have undoubtedly heard of edIT. One of the crews founding members, edIT released his second album “Certified Air Raid Material” last October with a little help from the cream of the LA underground hip-hop scene. The Grouch, Abstract Rude, Busdriver, TTC and D-Styles all contributed to the album which took a reported four years to finish.
Speaking on his myspazzzz edIT claimed that it was a bizarre four years, At one point his single “Battling Go-Go Yubari in downtown LA” was being pitched to Christina Aguilera by some friends of his. The track was rejected as being too Britney Spears for the Aguilera Massive!
