 +====== Say What? ======
  
 +Rap
 +
 +From Trent Dean (Facebook comments): “OK guys. I'm coming out. I am "The Dean" ...the voice of Say What. I did all the raps. The female vocalist -"Tiny Tina" was our friend Tina Vallejo. And "​TMOK"​ - guest rapper on the song -"​Brother Brother"​ was (still is) my brother Todd! The producer - "Mix Master Mighty White" was my good friend Brian Tankersley. So ....[[Steve Taylor]] had NOTHING to do with this. Brian and I wrote and recorded the entire record in 3 weeks. In Los Angeles. Toluca Lake to be exact. So. What else would you like to know...boyyyyyyyyyy........
 +
 +It did come out of nowhere! haha We were hired by the label - [[Star Song Records]] - to do the project. I had just gotten off the //Eye 2 I// tour with Michael W. Smith. It was a blast making it. My sense of humor is a bit twisted (as you have all heard)... So it was a perfect storm. Brian and I have talked about doing a new one sometime. Maybe we will!?!
 +
 +The follow-up was indeed //Nuclear Fishin'//​ (a title I was really proud of for our "​fish"​ theme.) After //Fresh Fish//, I was signed briefly to Chrysalis Records and released an album for them in 91. Then that went bust. Star Song offered same deal to do another. So I did! This time with a slightly different team.
 +
 +I pushed the envelope on "Put out the Fire" ...caused a few - shall we say - heated discussions with the label and producer. But I was pretty passionate about there being another viewpoint out there. I also was just getting over a cold... which explains the deeper voice. Hows that for trivia!?
 +
 +There weren'​t any Say What? live performances. The label set us up to be incognito. So since we couldn'​t reveal our identities... Big mistake though. Ya can't promote a new band without touring. Or at least videos. So it all kinda ended as quick as it started.”
