The Weathermen released a mixtape in 2003 titled The Conspiracy, on Eastern Conference Records.[5][6] The Conspiracy was to be the last work Cage would record for Eastern Conference, leaving the label over alleged non-payment. In the summer of 2010, Cage announced on his Facebook page the beginning of a collaboration between himself and Aesop Rock called "Two of Every Animal", along with the news that there would be no new Weathermen without Camu Tao.
