This bottle of Opus One is low but my spirits are high my friends. I am about 2 hours away from Toronto, CA where I will be spending the next chunk of time recovering from a surgery that I now must have. I embarked on this tour with a torn ACL, MCL, and LCL and due to the events that happened the other night lord only knows what other damage I have done. On the bright side I will begin the reflecting and soul searching that its going to take to make this album and my outfit on the night I fell was crack. I will forever push myself beyond the limits despite advice and recommendations given because even with this new found success I am still the kid who wanted this more than anything in the world. Its funny when I read comments from previous fans who have lost interest because of the radio play and exposure I have. I just want to assure anyone reading that nothing has changed on my end. I refuse to get comfortable, I refuse to fall in line and follow anyone elses formulas. I still work as if So Far Gone had never dropped and I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to gain entry to this game.
“Missing someone gets easier everyday. Because, even though it is one day further from the last time you saw each other, it is one day closer to the next time you will”
See you soon.
Now, with that ... typed, I can post what I really wanted to say. This type of stuff inspires the hell outta me. It's not everyday that you meet A PERSON, much less a rapper, that is so willing to tell you how he feels about something; especially from a vulnerable point of view. It really makes me realize that it's okay to be yourself. I mean, Drake didn't help me come to that conclusion, lol, but you catch my drift. It's just a great thing to see someone who is unafraid of their true character. That's what I live/stand for. Be yourself and always stand for what you believe in. It's the only way to achieve REAL success.
And btw, I plan on looking back and reading this one day. So I'm gonna talk to myself now: Hey what's up self? Have you taken this advice you just preached? That no one else wanted to hear from you? If not, then make it happen!!!!

Edit: I'm not sure if anyone reads this anymore. I've been neglecting this blog pretty hardcore, lol. No excuses. But as you can see, I shot a music video. The song is called ILLIN' and it's the first song that I'm releasing from the project I'm currently working on. Enjoy.

The interview is cool, they always have interesting ish to say. They've been saying it alot lately though. So I was entertained by something else.... the video quality. Wow. Hopefully this looks as good to anyone that watches it. I don't know your circumstances of viewage.
Edit: This was shot by Zach Wolfe, who is a film BEAST... never heard of him? Get familiar.

What If.. haha see what I did there?
But really though, this video makes me think. I've watched one or two movies that capitalize on the fact that there are always options.. in every situation. Once a choice is made, everything else falls into place accordingly. These movies show that with every decision an alternate world is created for each choice. Crazy shit. But makes you think... pretty dope. If Nas had signed to Def Jam in 92-93.. and THEN made Illmatic.. it would have probably been a different album.
Personally, I'm happy he didn't.
No disrespect but Nas's hip hop path > LL's hip hop path. Just saying.

I remember watching Fade To Black (the movie) and straight up getting chills when this beat came on (@ 0:24). I'm reallllly into that sound as most of my close people know. This clip is really inspirational to me. One day I hope to make someone like Jay-Z speak similar words about me as an artist. Check it out.
