This record was released through Spread Love Entertainment, the company which the Amphibians own and run as a collective. Spread Love Entertainment also produces a hip-hop video show (named, appropriately enough, Spread Love) and currently promotes a weekly open mic/showcase in New York City.
Part of the proceeds from previous Amphibians-sponsored events have benefitted numerous charitable organizations, ranging from Funds for the Community's Future to the Center for Sickle Cell Anemia. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the single was also donated to the Center, all part of the Amphibians' goal to put their positive words into positive action.
Determined to pioneer new sounds, the Amphibians aimed to be the future of music.

Washington DC hip hop "The late 1990s, when the scene was flourishing at spots like State of the Union, Nyala and the legendary b-boy gathering Soul Camp. DJ Orbit 122 (Malik El Hage) was right in the middle of it, spinning Thursdays at Nyala with a freestyle crew called the Amphibians. "It was one of the most authentic spaces for D.C. hip-hop," he recalls. "It was one of those down-home venues where there was no pressure except to be dope." via Washington Post - Mom-and-Pop Hip-Hop
