Bates and Casey O'Brien at the time of Eyedea's sudden death in The future of the group is uncertain but as of it had been confirmed the second album Waste Age Teenland would be released posthumously. It was released May 24, , seven months after Eyedea's death. However the Eyedea and Friends show's actually consisted entirely of extended freestyles with freely improvised instrumental backing this lend to disappointment and anger in many of the fans who in turn booed and threw objects at the group. After the first tour the group stopped performing for a while due partly to the negative reaction. However the project was revived with the new name Face Candy and found a better reaction to the music playing now that fans knew what to expect and through playing Jazz venues where the crowds were more receptive to the group's sound.

Eyedea seemed vulnerable, perhaps too defensive about being complex, difficult, and heady. This follow-up shares these intellectual qualities with its predecessor, only now Eyedea sounds more comfortable with his place in the rap world, and, consequently, flows and weaves more surely through Abilities's beats and glass-dazzling cuts. Indeed, on tracks such as "Kept," "Star Destroyer," and "Reintroducing" which makes a wonderful reference to a technical innovation on Run D. Instead of collapsing his words, rhymes, and ideas into a thousand impossible parts, he now fuses these elements into the pure beam of a rap swing. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

I chatted with DJ Abilities after his last tour about new projects, his evolving style, and his secrets to success. Adam Alloy: Thank you for comin talking to me today. I want to preface this interview by saying there was a time in my life when I was very depressed and I was really losing my mind. I was 18 years old and First Born was instrumental in getting me through that period of my life. It has a very special place in my heart, as do all Eyedea and Abilities albums. DJ Abilties: Thank you very much. As time went on I got more into DJing. I got into that. I made two mixes that you can get on my Soundcloud that I spent A LOT of time on, that are basically the basis of how I perform live by myself… which I had to figured out how to do as well. How to put on my own show.
