I wanted to create a project that represents my experiences as a young artist and musician that expresses all the trials, life lessons and memorable moments in my life so far. Music has given me everything I have, so I wanted to give my all to this record. From the production standpoint and the songwriting, I really focused on a sound that could relate to the culture of my generation. Plus, the music incorporates all of the information and music passed on from the generations of musicians and influences passed down to me. This record attempts to tackle social issues such as inner city struggles of the youth. Topics include; being different in a black community and trying to find your own sense of confidence, dealing with peer pressure, speaking on relationships that ended when I moved away from New York, and an overall sense of my dedication to the art and, how I can leave a positive impact through it.
