In September of 2008, Focus… & Fokis released an EP called 20/20. It was a classic project that left the listeners craving for more from the duo. 5 years later they have decided to release a retail version of the project as an official LP with some new songs. “Focus… & I have been working on a new project that we are looking to release later this year. We had some extra songs laying around that are not going on the new project so I said, lets package them up with the 20/20 EP, make it a Full Album and release for retail. He thought it was a good idea so we went with it. I love working with my brother Focus… He and I have a great chemistry when it comes to creating music but we are also great friends who get together with our families over dinner and hangout as well”. – Fokis

“The Opening Act” a FreEP by Stryfe, a Local MU-12 Union member and artist on the Loyalty Digital Corp. Roster…
“The Opening Act EP is a classic, Stryfe is a Wizard on the Mic and Illingsworth is a magician with the beats. This project is filled with head nodding, neck snapping dope music. I believe in his talent and feel he is going to be a really big artist.” – Fokis
Upon completing his forthcoming LP, “The Last Resort”, Stryfe teamed up with fellow Detroit native Illingsworth to create “The Opening Act,” EP which will serve as the prelude to his debut LP and is now available here for download.
