He continued "do we even have song now? What we have now is the beat. Aside that, there is no content regulation .We have been saying that we should go back to the drawing board.

9ice is set to drop another set of double albums titled 'CNN' and 'GRA' in March 2013. ‘CNN’ means Cancelling Numerous Negativity while ‘GRA’ stands for Galvanizing Right Ahead, the albums would contain 8 tracks each.
