Ripe and Ready's debut, "We All Have To Do It", is an 8 song musical hallucinogen featuring the original life-poetry of then 70-year-old Vietnam veteran and real-deal Mexican-American HERO, Homero Cantu, whose intriguing verbalized imagery was re-purposefully mixed with new-age house-music that was freely packaged with Tilex Shower Cleaner back in 2001.

***Homer has been missing again since 2012, likely to be in the central Ohio area or Texas. If you have any info on his whereabouts, please contact via this site. Thx!
