It’s funny when you think about the difference that year can make.  About a year and some change ago, I was coming out of probably one of the worst low periods of my life.  I always thank Nurthice for inspiring me to start creating art again.  I remember when he had first shared this song with me, I was literally floored because I didn’t know he could sing! Here’s my flip on this track from his upcoming album.

Here’s a collage piece from my current portfolio, it’s been a minute since I’ve had the chance to update the site. At this point, all I can think about is what a difference a year can make. I have two albums in the shelf right now that need minor adjustments before I can release them. It’s been a long time coming but I can’t wait to share them with you guys.

Omari T. recently killed it with this remix of “River On Glass”, be sure to check him out here and support his work.  He’s definitely one of the most up and coming talented producers around.

I know it’s been a bit of a minute since I’ve had the chance to post on the site but I’ve been a bit busy finishing up Gravity and I was recently accepted into an MFA program at The New School as well. There’s so much that I want to share, as well as some upcoming visuals to selections from River On Glass.

Gravity is coming soon, very soon I can promise you that.

Interview with dRes

dRes is one of those cats who I can’t thank enough or say enough good things about. I had initially connected with D back in 2008 in NYC.  We were both at a party for a then up and coming mc who had just put out his debut mixtape. Shortly after our initial meeting D had contacted me to tell me about a project he was working on, it amazed me how he managed to get so many high profile artists on his record. The thing that inspired me most was his conviction about his music and the odds that he went against to see it completed. I personally have learned so much about being a multi faceted artist through the example that D has set for me wether he realizes it or not. I’ve watched him grow from afar the past few years and although I know his schedule is ridiculous at the moment, I was very proud to see him release his debut LP "Wild Produce" (which was years in the making). Anything worth doing will always take a concentrated effort, and i’m proud to see where D’s efforts as a producer and manager have taken him in his career. I’m also glad that I can call him a friend, he believed in me at a time when many people (myself included) didn’t.
