Michael Barber and Josh Tifer’s song, Take Your Time, was originally released on Interscope Digital back in 2011. The song charted on Itunes and sold over 109,000 copies to date, has been re-released on Michael’s newly released album, Sand Dollars.

Michael Barber is a rapducer, from Evansville, Indiana, best known for being the last artist signed to Death Row Records. That label deal went by the wayside and under water as Death Row entered into it’s last bankruptcy. Barber’s highly touted album, Thrift Shop II Hip Hop was never released.

“Take Your Time” was the first of a music fusion between metal rock guitarist and producer Tifer and self proclaimed, “rapducer” (rapper + producer) Barber. The duo formed the group, Illuminati Sky, and toured the state of Florida twice most notably opening for Naughty by Nature.

Sand Dollars is a mix of those songs that were stranded on Death Row as well as a few projects recorded with Illuminati Sky. Illuminati Sky described their fusion sound as RUNK(Runk = Rap + Punk).

Barber and Tifer, wisely, owned the rights to Take Your Time, and the release is all within the legal limits. The whole album, Sand Dollars is available for sale on all digital outlets online.
