Life is so crazy y'all. I find myself constantly second-guessing my validity, my self-worth. The more "notoriety" I acquire through scoial media, I more scared I get to share what's going on in my life--which is totally the opposite of what I expected. So, I want to take a moment to own up to this mental block I've been battling. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A lot of people ask me how I started--how I built my platform, and it all comes down to one core philosophy: doing what I wanted without asking for permission. I didn't ask my colleagues for permission, and that's apparent by the way they made fun of me (in the beginning). I didn't ask big organizations to work with me; they would have ignored me anyway. And I didn't ask an audience to follow me; I simply built them a reason to. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So, now it's time to own up. I don't know how to explain why I haven't been posting as much...I guess it's just that I'm becoming a bit more afraid to be vulnerable; I'm not following my own advice. I wanted to publicly own up to that, and as we get into 2018, I want to fix it. I want to get back to creating the kind of content that made you follow me in the first place!
Here's why I'm saying all this. I got here BECAUSE I wasn't perfect. I got here because I didn't ask for permission. I got here because I wasn't afraid to share my life with you beautiful people (and I had more free time, let's be real lol). And now, I want to get back to setting an good example. I want to prove that there is value in posting your reality, not your perfection. #NewYearsResolution#PlayHomiePlay

Song I finished after releasing btf, so I'll probably release this as a single through Spotify or something some week whenever I feel good about spending $10 on releasing it, and whenever I find out what genre I'd classify this as.
So if anyone knows what genre this seems like, comment it or something! [Tagging like4like to increase the view and chance of something finding out what genre this is 💀] #instrumentals#instrumental#beat#musicproducer#music#whatgenreisthis#like4like#indie
