Since the release of his debut album, Funky Motherfucker, Yeah back in 2009, he's done his fair share of both, including his vaunted instrumental EP Destroyer of All Things and his ground-breaking collaborative record with Dr. Quandary, The Dioscuri.
These days, you still can catch him working both on and off the mic on his own solo material — in 2016 he independently released Rap With My Original Face, Otherwise Phony, a collection of singles and rarities — as well pulling double-duty as one half of No Humans Allowed with Vermont emcee Thirtyseven, and producing for That Handsome Devil frontman Godforbid.
As of this writing, Lou is shoulder-deep in his long-awaited rap LP AVGVSTVS, due for release in late 2017.
