"Pursuing new boundaries for hip-hop, Mr. Len brought forth a new vision for old school rap. One of the founders of the independent hip-hop trio Company Flow, Mr. Len remained with the crew for more than six years. By 1999, however, following its disbanding, Len decided to begin working on his own. After two years of constant work, including the single "This Morning," created with the Juggaknots, and "What the Fuck?," with Mr. Live, Mr. Len finally released his debut full-length album. Pity the Fool: Experiments in Therapy Behind the Mask of Music While Handing Out Dummys, issued in 2001, featured guest appearances by Jean Grae, Juggaknots, and Mass Influence."
