Mr. Esham I'm a student at the Art Institute of Music Media AIMM. As a requirement for one of my classes I must contact an Artist and submit a request to use their stems in a project we're working on for our final grade. Not really sure of what stems truly are I've been researching them all day only to get definitions of a stem, but not an actual picture or notation of what a stem is. It would greatly be appreciated if I could receive stems from you to assist in my project. I've been looking over a list of your songs and Deep Inside Of You jumped out at me. This is an Electronic Music class but whatever you submit is greatly appreciated. My name is Franklin McBryde and my email address is Thanking you in advance. FM
