"Prince" Paul Huston and Dan "The Automator" Nakamura both have extensive experience with concept albums. Prince Paul can boast the groundbreaking horrorcore of Gravediggaz and his rap-opera A Prince Among Thieves; Nakamura helped with both the sci-fi epic Deltron 3030 and animated pop band Gorillaz.

On their 1999 debut Handsome Boy Modeling School collaboration So... How's Your Girl, the two introduced themselves in slippery alter-egos, as cunning lotharios Chest Rockwell (Prince Paul) and Nathaniel Merriweather (Nakamura), two spokesmen for a $60 finishing school for jetsetters. Between them, their understanding of hip-hop concept records is virtually unmatched-- their projects have displayed ambitious, genre-mashing blends of novelty, unity, and style. And from dozens of in-character interviews ("Handsome people attract other handsome people," Merriweather once quipped), to the regal coiffure and handlebar mustaches in their press photos, Paul and Dan consistently projected the HBMS motif in their public appearances. - Pitchfork
