The title of my EP explains a lot about situations I have went through and observed with many people; rather personal or business in the last few years. In the year of 2014 I was going through a lot mentally at home and my main problem was not knowing what I truly wanted to do in life. Don’t get me wrong music has always been my passion but at the time I was letting fear and insecurities hold me back.
Summer 2014 came and I just finished the joint album with group mate Kitty Kash “I Said It” but due to lack of knowledge and financial constraints the project was not properly promoted. There were so many things that I looked at as failure that was happening home that I was forced that summer to pack my bags and move to Columbus, Oh. I totaled my car and junked it right before I left with literally a couple weeks worth of clothes, and a $100 in my pocket. I got fed up with the energy around me and the progress I was making with employment, I decided to step out on faith.
Within a week I found a job paying more than anyone had offered back home and in a month racked up enough cash to get a place and handle moving costs. For the next 9 months I stayed focus, worked, saved, wrote music, and researched the business. Things were starting to look up and I noticed my mental was changing due to the energy around me. Whenever things would go wrong this time I would take it for what it is because it was usually a good reason behind it.
In March 2015 I was on my way to work when I was hit by a school bus crossing the street, I flew about 10 feet laid unconscious for about 60 seconds and still managed to survive, I left the hospital with no broken bones and 9 stitches in my lip. Physically and mentally I was torn because now I was forced to depend on people and “ask” something I’ve never been fond of. Now it’s a whole year later and through everything I endured I still managed to start my own label Moral Minds LLC and release my EP “I Go: No Leaches Allowed.”
One of the most important things I have come to understand is to separate myself from those who don’t share the same morals and values as me. I have always been one to believe “treat others how you want to be treated” and “people will only do what you allow them.” If you learn to balance those two I find it the quickest way to weed out the unnecessary vibes. I hope to give insight and understanding to those who can relate with my EP which is now available for stream and download on my website.
