Today is a BIG day for me.
Today, with only a few bucks in my bank account; with only a few days left until I’m scrambling change to afford my rent; with only a makeshift recording studio in my East Hollywood apartment; and only my middle class Californian stories; I’m proud to present to everybody my debut commercial album, “A Breathtaking Trip To That Otherside”.
The album got some epic features from the likes of BAGO, Alchemist, E-40, Mr. MFN Exquire and Action Bronson and has guest production from the likes of Caleb Stone, Bobby Evans, and In Transit.
Over the past few months my music has been labeled with a plethora of sub-genre titles by journalists and writers who only recently became hip to me, most likely via being assigned to cover my music by their publications. Names like “Drug Rap” or “Psychedelic Trippy Hip Hop” get thrown around and I can’t help but laugh. All my music is, is a manifestation of me and the hard work I’ve put in since the age of 11 to get where I’m at now. Perhaps it is drugged out and trippy, but that’s far from the message.
I hope that when you peep the album you don’t listen to it with ignorance. I’m not here trying to make music for the club or radio. I’m not here flaunting anything but my reality. I’m not here looking for any street cred.
It feels weird sitting here asking you to pay attention to my work without feeling narcissistic and demanding. But this is one of those projects I feel needs to be presented to you like this. In an honest manner. I ain’t here asking for your sales and numbers as much as I am asking for your respect.
I’m writing this without any thought going into it, just writing cause it feels right. I hope you enjoy the album. You can stream it here, but I’d rather you purchase it and give it a listen. The same way you probably did with any music you did when growing up. Regardless, take a listen and enjoy something that was the sum of 15 years of hard work.
