Lord, Thank you for blessing me with the ability to open my eyes and breathe on this morning. I am thankful for many things, but mainly, I am thankful for the progress that you have helped me make personally, professionally and musically in the past few years. I am thankful that you have let my Granny see another year of life. She’s coming up on 92 years of life in May. Thankful that...
Dear Chicago Weather,
Fuck you. #thatisall.

I find it hilarious that.....
hella producers are making their beats and trying to EQ things like 40 does… and when they try to sell the beat they name it Drake, Drizzy or some sort of variation.
I'm Late.... Make a Movement Vol. 1.
I just went 42 pages back on my tumblr. I follow a lot of people who post a lot of photos, and I love looking at all of them. I love the application on my BB too, lets me keep up with the blog without a computer. But yeaaa, so ther other day, I performed at Phli boutique with a ROSTER of excellent Chicago talent. Sometimes I forget that we’re kinda dope lol. I also just got a chance to...
Russell Simmons' Letter to Kanye West
I found this on DJ Vlad’s website, and thought it was like one of the dopest things ever. Dear Kanye, I have early recollections of Damon Dash calling me and forcing me to put you on Def Poetry Jam. I knew your record, “Through The Wire,” but I didn’t know much more. When you took the stage on Def Poetry Jam that night, and spit those genuine, heartfelt words, I...

I live my life by song lyrics and movie quotes.– Me
It’s so hard to describe in simple words. In having a conversation with a friend a few minutes ago, I started to realize just how deep this is as an emotion. How it can be your driving force, how it could keep you focused be it love for a child or love for a significant other… It was one of those epiphanies you have once you realize you’re getting older. I loved every girl I...
Writer's Block (part 14)
forgive me i speak so quickly that sometimes i never stop to think about the consequences sometimes I open myself so freely that I never stop to think about… i’ve forgotten what it was like to be in love for the first time almost like a basehead chasing that first hit i’m just as hopeless… chasing a first kiss chasing even just a smile from you
I’m not really having a bevy of good days recently. Things happen that could make days better, but they’re so small sometimes that it’s more of a mood brighten-er lol. I’m not really doing my job at the best of my ability, which isn’t to good and until now I’ve been too stubborn to honestly ask for help. I’m a directionless human being, as I’ve...

Fall For Your Type- Jamie Foxx ft. Drake
I swear, Drake gets it in on some writing…. he’s an excellent artist to analyze and absorb. Jamie Foxx smashed this track though. I wish Drake was privy to harmony, i know he mentioned he liked to not do harmony like Sade, but man some of the stuff I hear in my head when I listen to this dude’s music would just explode people’s minds lmao lmao. So I kinda got these lyrics...
After the Meditation
Sometimes I forget to thank God for his blessings. I get angry at criticisms and little things that I shouldn’t take to heart, and lose it over simple shit like people unfollowing me on twitter. It’s all very trivial, very minute in the grand scheme of things. This past week has made me very aware at how frail my vocal cords are. I woke up on monday morning with a sore throat and the...
I’m an emotional guy. Is that so bad? Sometimes I take personal offense to things I probably shouldn’t take personal offense to. In other news, Flyy City had quite the productive meeting last night. Plans were made, consciences were cleared and everyone came to some agreements. i also was in the studio writing for this Chicago R&B artist Derty Harry with the other 1/4th of the...
every single person who listened to Voice of Reason. I can only continue to get better with your help and support.
