Pending is Out Now!!!!

Pending is Out Now!!!!

My debut album Pending is now available, on iTunes.

The release party was yesterday and it was a great success.  I had close friends and family show up to support the launch of my album. The photo for this post contains words of encouragement from guests.  This is now one of my most prized possessions.

It was great to perform several cuts off the record with a live band.  I will post some photos over the next couple days.  I wanted to send a special thanks to Christian “Lone Monk” Caldeira, AJ ELMN (DJ) and Raphael Roter (Drums) for being a significant part of making the night special.

Check out my album “Pending” and leave some feedback on tracks.

Music, Rap, Hopes and Stress

Music, Rap, Hopes and Stress

2013 and the amount of rappers, aspiring rappers etc is frightening.  I try not to throw stones, but as a music lover I cannot help being a critic.  Like any genre over saturation is not helpful.  The internet has opened the flood gates for a tsunami of artists.  Now the only difference to any other genre is hip hop, which is more aggressive by nature, you get artists that are just seeking local fame rather than express their artistry. Then again I guess this could be applied across all genres. Artists like DMX, 50 Cent, Rick Ross etc..are ones that represent the epitome of the streets.  This is essentially what hip hop steamed from, it was meant to shed light on an environment most Americans could care less about, at that time.

But today, like anything used to generate millions of dollars, it has lost so much of its innocence.  That doesn’t mean there are no great artists in hip hop, but the amount of bullshit you have to shift through to find something of substance is disturbing.

I always wondered if lovers of other genres felt the same way?  Though I enjoy other genres of music I really know more about Hip Hop than any other.

If you like other genres let me know, do you feel the same way I do?

Wow This is Actually Kinda Hard…

Wow This is Actually Kinda Hard…Blogging or whatever you wanna call this. Unless for school, I rarely write this frequent and even when I do I do not worry about spelling, grammar etc. because it never gets “published”.

Also I think with writing everyday it becomes more and more obvious how regular my life is. Take today for example. I woke up, worked and came home. Well my cpu table did fall apart, but I did fix it with masking tape!

(ADD leads to me jumping all over the place sorry)

I started a short story a while back and haven’t continued it in quite sometime. What is it about you ask? Well it is about a guy, who is pretty much down on his luck. Oh this story most likely be what the common folk call “a downer”. That’s what I like y’all! Miss me with all the happy Disney endings. “I ain’t bout that life!!!!”

I haven’t written new music in a while either. I tried making a beat earlier today but the tray holding my keyboard fell apart and after fixing it I was exhausted.

I spent quite a pretty penny on the party for my album “Pending”….What’s that saying…Scared money don’t make no money? Yeah that’s what I say to make myself feel better!

Later on!
