Korn bassist Fieldy is set to release his first solo album �Rock n Roll Gangster� on January 22nd through Epic Records. 

This is the first solo effort from any member of the group and it sees Fieldy exploring the world of hip-hop according to a press release from Epic Records. � Those expecting a straight rock record from the Korn bassist will be pleasantly surprised to find Fieldy�s love for hip-hop has an unmistakable presence on his first solo album,� said Epic Records. 

 �What inspires me to make music, is rap music.  I�ve always loved it and having the love I have for rap made me want to do a rap album,� Fieldy explains. �I just wanted to put together a fun party type record.  Something to party to, you know?  It�s not full of gangsta rap or anything like that.  To me, it�s like Cheech and Chong meets Sesame Street�  

Fieldy shared production duties with Polar Bear, �fellow Los Angeleno and up and coming producer�. On the tracks he produced Fieldy also played the guitar, bass, drums and keyboard tracks. He called in guest vocalist for several of the tracks including Tre from Pharcyde for �Sugar-Coated� and Sondoobie of Funkdoobiest for �Put a Week on It� and his Korn bandmate Jonathon Davis for �Just for Now�. 

Epic plans to release the first single and video, �Are You Talking to Me� in the coming weeks.
