AS A ENGINEER ALL PRODUCTIONS ARE DONE BY US BUT WE NEVER GET CREDITED FOR THAT THEY ONLY RECOGNIZE YOU FOR RECORDING OR MIXING. WELL INFACT THE ALBUM WAS PRODUCED BY ME AND U ROY AND EXECUTIVELY PRODUCED BY U ROY AS I HAVE BEEN DIRECTING THE VOCALS AND REPLACING WORDS WE DONT NEED SO I HAVE BEEN AND DONE A GREAT PAER OF THE PRODUCTION, MAXIMUN RESPECT FROM G. BRAVO.
