In recent years, Kasim has also been making his name as a producer, having produced the Meat Loaf album StoryTellers in 1999, and Rick Reynolds' album Unstoppable in 2005.
Kasim released his solo album, *Quid Pro Quo,* in 2002 to critical acclaim by both critics and fans alike, and in 2003, it won the Kweevak.com Viewers* Choice Award. Kasim*s double compilation CD called *All Sides* which includes new tracks, live tracks and personal favorites from his other solo albums was released in 2007. His first ever solo DVD was released in December of 2008.
