This Is My Life is executive produced by Easy Mo Bee with featured production from Just Blaze and Statik Selektah. Guest features include Rakim, Peter Gunz, Grandmaster Caz (Cold Crush Brothers), Devastating Tito (Fearless Four), Smoothe Da Hustler, Lil Fame (M.O.P.), Mic Handz, and Skanks The Rap Martyr.
