Name the Files

I have the worse luck sometimes…..

As I proceeded to play the beat project on iPhone I realized that this isn’t what I loaded. Well, yeah it is…..but it wasn’t what I wanted.

Lesson learned…..pay close attention to what you name your files and be sure to know if you have similar names on two different files you increase the chances of mixing them up….duh!!!!

Late nights

What’s up world?

You ever felt like your mind was running a million different places at once!!! That’s how I feel at the moment. Nonetheless, I’m working at the moment. Laying down the tracks for the beat project to track it out.

Funny thing is….I can’t track it because I burned my last CD yesterday to ride with it to the Mayweather fight. So what else is new. I’m digging it though!!!

As I sent and listen to it I zone and my wonders so many different places . Just the ability to touch people with music makes me a happier person. I just can’t wait to get the chance…..hopefully.

Hard work, right!!!!

That’s what they say……

……the sacrifices one makes to chase a dream!!!!

Stay up!!!!

Peace!!!

Album Cover

Here’s the cover for the album. It’s been a long process just making it to this point, but I’m finally there! We finalized the album sequencing last night and it seems to be flowing just right. I’m happy with it.

Now it’s time for the next phase, which will be letting a couple of news publications know that I’m back with another project.

Stay up!!!!

Peace!!!!

Progress

Sequencing my album all this week….it’s been a hell of an effort!!! I’m also adding effects to some of the songs just to give them a little more pizazz!!

I’m definitely ready to be done with this whole project! I haven’t worked on anything but two beats all year and that ain’t cool to me. First things first though!!!!

Stay up!!!!

Peace!!!

Yep!!!!

Just got the word that my partner in crime Miss Jay is on the way to South Carolina. Perfect timing because I need a female to sing on two joints anyway!!!!

The two songs are called “Black Powder” and “Carbon Copies”….just to give some insight on my recording process. These particular two songs come from two different projects which at the time remain nameless.

Nonetheless, I’m looking forward to seeing my partner and putting her to work!!!

Chewing the Fat!!!

It’s been a long Thanksgiving weekend and I’m glad to be back to my normal schedule. I took some time off and went home to visit my aunt and hang out with my cousin and some friends I hadn’t seen in a minute. Needless to say that night ended in such a not so good way!!!

My dude DJ June slid into town and as always we usually go digging! I didn’t get a chance to get anything because I didn’t really feel like digging but it was worth it just to get out and go through records. I did manage to work on a couple of mixes and chop it up with Dj June concerning putting the album we were working on out for the new year.

The goal is three albums all of which have been started. One is damn near done, the other half way complete, and the other we have begun producing the beats for. To top it all off this DJing thing is starting to be a big goal as well. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I’m going to be a busy guy this year!!! Honestly, I need to stay busy.

The focus

What’s hood world. Today I’m in chill mode just fumbling through my thoughts. I got a lot only mind but it’s nothing harmful. Today’s a pretty good day….suns out and it’s cool!!!

What more could you ask for…oh I guess I should mention I threw it back today and decided to bump Maxwell’s “Urban Hang Suite”….actually listening to it while I post this from the phone.

I hollered at Biggs Nevada and everything is still groovy. We had a talk and he’s decided to really sink into the album verses just being a rapper rapping. That’s what separates some artists projects from others. You gotta be a part of the music you make, don’t just make it. Focus!

What’s so special about what you make?

For me I put together my work like it’s a chapter in my life and I find that when you approach anything like that, it takes on a new meaning. Not just to you….but the world as well! You gotta give it everything you got and whatever it is you’re giving has to be everything you have…redundant…. I know….. But that’s how it works. Focus!

I fallow producer Illmind on twitter and he posted a couple of tweets that sum up what it takes to make your dream reality. Most of us already know it and it’s self explanatory but the key to it all is is having the confidence in knowing that you can do it. As long as you are confident you know eventually the sun while shine through. You know even when you’re failing that you really aren’t…..you’re just not succeeding. What’s the difference?

Atleast with confidence you know you’re still confident that you will do what you are capable of. During the trial of failure you just may be doing something wrong, that’s something you can fix by acknowledging you’re doing something wrong and changing you’re path to the correct one. Without confidence you fail simply because you have given up on yourself….u get it. Focus!!!!

I know I am….that’s why this project is gonna bang…mark my words! I’ma holla back at ya…until the next post…peace and blessings!

Now Check out Maxwell!!!!!
