  • “ It turned out this man worked for the Dalai Lama. And she said gently-that they believe when a lot of things start going wrong all at once, it is to protect something big and lovely that is trying to get itself born-and that this something needs for you to be distracted so that it can be born as perfectly as possible. ”

    Just heard Judgement day and 180, and I quickly became a fan. Shout out to The Smoking Section for putting me on. When does Thesis drop?

    Asked by jump-shooter

    happy to hear that!

    how do you write so amazingly?

    Asked by kingvada

    I am a vessel.

    I just try to stay open to inspiration and truthfully portray my experience.

    Hey I know this has probably been asked and answered already so sorry in advance, but is there going to be a longer version of Freedom? ( Even though I completely love what's been release already! ) And do you feel like it is or will be your signature song?

    Asked by Anonymous

    Just finalized the track listing, and yep. There will be. Hope you like (all six min of) it!

    I definitely think it’s one of the stronger songs on the project, but there are a few that I really couldn’t choose between if I had to pick a “signature.”

    Can’t wait for you to hear thesis!

    I have 2 questions. First is it hard to find Rnb beats ( it seems like everyone is either doing trap or EDM nowadays) and 2ndly,what are your views on the current state of Rnb music?

    I suppose it depends how you classify RnB beats… I don’t feel like I have trouble finding music to write to, but I don’t necessarily seek producers who make a specific genre of music. I think this is an exciting time for RnB, because there seems to be a paradigm shift in the genre. A lot of experimentation, but more importantly, a lot of open mindedness about what constitutes good music. I’m most excited about the blending of influences and the new narratives we see from more subversive artists who don’t want to just talk about the expected love/sex/heartbreak/etc…
