Oh yeah, when I make a bet, I always honor that shit. Friend from Twitter got this in the mail today. At least I got it to him before the next season started. #BetterLateThanNever

The first two actual mix tapes I ever dropped. Probably circa 99. Featuring me on the turntables and the mic and wrapped up in my early photoshop explorations. Recorded these at my homie Kevin Tenorio’s house if I’m not mistaken. Good times. #tbt

Inside “The War Within” (Bonus Tracks Edition)

Just realized I never closed down the Inside the War Within series by breaking down the bonus cuts…….So here we go.

Smile Tonight

For those familiar with the roster on Strange Music, you’ve probably seen or heard Stevie Stone before. He  rocks an insane live show that I never got tired of watching. If you know Stevie, then you know his hypeman/producer Frizz. He’s an immense talent and has a production crew with his cousin Rell called “County Boyz”. They served me up a few beats and Smile Tonight was what came out of that mix. I  dug the swing of the beat from first listen. 

We often go through our lives so focused on work and monetary gain that we don’t stop to just enjoy the fact we’re breathing. That was the motivation behind Smile Tonight. I wanted to write a note to my loved ones that letting them know that when this one comes on it’s time to put all the other distractions aside and just enjoy each other and just purely being alive. This one was the hardest for me to not include on the main track listing. 

Puppet Masters

When I was in KC working with Seven and he played me this beat i wanted to chug a bottle of JD and wrestle a silverback Gorilla wearing an ironman suit. To be short, I loved it. At the time i felt my album was lacking some of the more uptempo neck snappers. Seven came through and delivered this one at the perfect time. 

This one was a throwback to my younger days. Somewhere between the desire for transparency and extreme paranoia. The concept we’re always being monitored and logged has always been fascinating to me. As the years have gone by and technology has dwarfed what we had in the 90’s the potential for eyes in the sky are more apparent than ever. Puppet Masters was me venting a cocktail of insecurity and rage.

In The Morning

Put this one down while working with Will Power in Atlanta, He has a small mountain sized sub in his studio. I can still feel the rattling in my spine from hearing (feeling) that beat play over there. Will has a great vibe and I loved what we came up with for the album. This one of the three we did just felt like it didn’t fit the fabric of the entire project and that’s why it ended up as a bonus cut. The outro breakdown of the beat is one of my favorite instrumental sections from the entire project though. 

As a musician or anyone who is married to their work, one finds an incredible amount of stress placed on keeping personal relationships. Something as simple as a casual friendship can be crazy difficult to maintain. The motivation behind In The Morning was that awkward convo that can come when someone isn’t equipped to deal with the fact you gotta keeeeeeep it moving. I love you and all but I gotsta be going. Plenty more work to do. 

Speaking of which……Back to the matters at hand.

And yes they had my solo record but in the “W Misc” 😂. Gotta drop another album and get my own tab. It’s on the way 😎 (at Amoeba Music)
