Eminem has production credits on three songs, while Dr. Dre mans the boards on another. Kid Rock, Esham and late Detroit rapper Proof are featured on a cover of Run-D.M.C.'s "Together Forever," while Ice Cube and Guilty Simpson also make guest appearances.

The first single is "Let It Fly" featuring Cube. A video will be released in the near future.

"The Villain" is Trick Trick's Koch debut. Its 2005 predecessor, "The People Vs.," was released by Motown and reached No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. It has sold 59,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Beyond the new album, Trick Trick is planning to release his own drink line, G-Punch, a grape-lemonade flavored energy drink through the Citron Beverage Group. He is also gearing up to appear in the films "Cut Print" and "Gang Squad."
