Ok…by now you probably have noticed that I make music, if you haven’t, do yourself a favour and check me out here:

What does music mean to me?  Well I won’t go into the whole Sydney Shaw (Brown Sugar reference) spiel, but I can say the feeling I get is like none other.

 

Working with my big homie Lone Monk aka Christian Calderia is a beautiful thing.  I can remember often times where I’ll enter a session and he’ll play something he had been working on or he’ll email me a track and I’ll tell ya what I always end up with a who fart face (translation the beat is good!).  Make sure you check my dude!

He is the primary go to guy when it comes to production and he produced the majority of my album “Pending”

 

Fyi..

Starting now I am going to make a conscience effort to do one of these a day!  Till next time.

 

 

University…

I’ve been attending university for 4 years now.  I know what your thinking “congrats on your graduation”…nope I have been going part time, still got a bunch of years and credits to go.  :Kayne Shrug: it’s all good I am in no rush to be an adult and grow up… even though I’m a grown ass man.

 

A pointer for all my people that are all about improvement, I noticed a significant increase in my grades once I started taking piano lessons.  I know somewhere there is some study about student’s grades improving when learning an instrument.

 

It works!!!

 

Pending is so close now…(my album if you wondering)

 

 

Pending…

Ahhhh Pending it’s almost here.  This record means a lot to me.  Growing up I never ever ever thought I was special.  I found myself always searching for something that would define me.  I always felt there was nothing really special about me to latch on to.  Even though I rapped I didn’t look at it as a skill that was “special”, it was just something I enjoyed and was good at.

 

Now even to this day I do not really think of myself as “special” but around the time when I was working multiple jobs and taking night classes, to upgrade my marks to enter university.  I definitely started seeing myself as someone not to be underestimated not because of what I was doing, but because I set out a plan and executed it.  Believe me I was never one to set goals and achieve them.  I was just “living” until I started setting goals.

 

It is my belief that most people rarely get to do what they want in life.  What I mean by that is most people make decisions based off their options.  Someone actually living their dream is extremely rare.  It’s kind of why major populated areas in North America fantasizes the idea of getting away on a vacation or going to the cottage as “the ultimate thing”.

 

I am grateful for my position.  Granted things can always be better but I am extremely grateful for being able to do what I love….
