As one of the founding members of Mac Dre's Thizz Nation and before that, a member of Mac Dre's group, The Cutthroat Committee, PSD has been one of the driving forces behind the Bay Area hip hop scene for years. PSD, one of the Bay Area's favorite hip hop sons, had been by Bay Area hip hop luminary Mac Dre's side for many years, so it makes sense that PSD is bring life back to Thizz Nation with an album due in the spring of 2007 on SMC Recordings.

The Thizz Nation was founded by Mac Dre and most Baydestrian's (Bay Area residents) credit Dre with jump-starting the Hyphy Movement. After Mac Dre's death, Thizz Ent. was thrust into the spotlight with Mac Dre's ever-growing cult following shown in some of the these projects - Treal TV 1 & 2 (a popular DVD series, which PSD played a significant role), Thizz Nation mixtapes, as well as the Atlantic Records signing of Mistah F.A.B.

The upcoming Thizz/SMC release PSD, Keak Da Sneak and Messy Marv present Da Bidness will feature beats from hip hop beat makers Droop-E (E-40's son), Rick Rock, Jake and the Phat Man, PSD, Tron Trees, DJ Ammbush and Lev. The album also features some of the top Bay Area hip hop and rap artists including E-40, The Thizz Nation's - Mistah F.A.B. & Dubee aka Sugawolf. The album's lead single will be "Cuz, Cuz" which is Bay Area slang equivalent to "son" in New York or "shawty" in the south. "Cuz, Cuz" features the album's all-stars - PSD, Keak Da Sneak and Messy Marv with production from Droop-E.

PSD explains his motives for putting together this amazing collaboration, "Initially the album was just me and Keak. It was supposed to be called "The Hyphy/Cool Nigga project". What me and Keak did was cool but neither of us were completely satisfied. My man gave me the idea of bringing a third cat to the table, someone from San Francisco so I hit Messy Marv. Mess got back at me, came to the studio and put it in motion. So now you have the foundation of the Bay Area on one project: San Francisco (Mess), Oakland (Keak) and Vallejo (PSD) - Three of the baddest cats wit hands, feet and the gift to gab. We reppin'' all around and in between the Bay."

SMC's co-owner, Will Bronson, shows his excitement for the upcoming album, "For us being a company based in the Bay Area, this project means a hell of a lot to us . You''ve got Keak Da Sneak, Messy Marv & PSD on one project, the two biggest Bay Area record companies aligning themselves with each other and to top it all off- it's just a dope fucking record. The best part is, this is only the beginning with PSD and our alliance with the Thizz Movement."
