about

As an artist, whenever you release a new album or project you’re exposed. Your heart & soul is on display for the world to see. You are naked for the world to critique every detail of your mind & heart. These works of art that we create are our children, our babies put on display to either be loved or hated. The fear of sharing yourself with the world to be judge for what you love to do is a scary process. Not knowing how it will be accepted or if even anyone will take the time to listen to what you have to say, or even appreciate the hours, the days of hard work you put in to create. I have been told by some that I should not create. Made to feel like I am wrong for wanting to share my creativity with others & express my feelings, experiences & thing I have seen throughout my life with others. Music has always been therapy for me & being able to create & have the opportunity to just maybe help someone through a tough situation, to make someone feel good or to just FEEL, through my music means a lot. I wrote, I produced, I was my own engineer through this entire process to create this album. I was my own marketing team. But creating this album isn’t just about me. This album, this music, the words laid down poetically to a drum & a snare is more than just that. This is not just for me to sell a product. This means more to me. See this is for the boy that became a man without the help of his father. This is for that child living in a brick city trying to fight his way out, that little girl searching for self -respect. This is for that hardworking man that lost his job, the mother raising 3 kids on her own. Those woman that cant see that they are beautiful no matter what size or complexion. This is for the dreamers, the creators, those fighting through depression. This is for those searching for justice,for those that lost faith. This is for pain, for love. These are Other Peoples Unique Scenes. This is OPUS.
I thank-you

Track Name: Opus
thank the lord, I'm feeling good
on my own 2, yea I stood
out this hood I wish I could
but despite these trappings I'm feeling good food in my belly from the deli rye bread no jelly happy faces in my cele from my girl in a text she sent I'm out the shower so fresh in scent and penny cents cause my dollars spent so rich I got common sense smell that air, see that sun feel that heat, hear this drum yea my touch ain't done see that's five sense, that I could never spend, better follow my trend bleed my pen & then watch my blend so mixed up in this world my friend past this system Im trying transcend watch my lifeline begin to extend life's curves trying to make bend that pine box I ain't trying to be in yea that the struggle real make you feel like, you can't deal when all you want to do is heal but I feel, now that's real and I'm good

20 dollars to my account
bills stacking on that mount
this air worth more, that amount
that's more then I can even count
alarm on that shakeup
thankful for that wakeup
my bed on that breakup
nighttime we on that makeup
and I'm still on this grind
mountains on that climb
streets trying to take my prime
and I'm just trying to keep mind
sanity surrounded by profanity
temptation on that gravity
pulling towards calamity
surviving for my family
finically its a travesty
I'm just searching for my amnesty
keep grinding, that's my only strategy
I ain't trying to see no tragedy
just trying to create my rhapsody
make realities from fantasies
keep close to all my enemies
yea look at me I'm doing me
that's the only thing in life thats Free ️️unbreakable, that's me I'm good that's me
