I do my best to remain positive at all times. Let me keep it real though, I have tons of less than positive thoughts about society, consumer markets, capitalism, weak systems, people, life, and everything else.
Although I have no remedy for this, the way I cope with it all is to smile as often as possible. Sometimes life feels like you're just walking around, slowly adding new members to a list of all the deceased people who were close to you in life. Sometimes people mature too fast and forget how to feel anything at all. Whatever the case may be, I will always greet my fellow humans with a warm smile. Even when I'm naturally scowling on a less than favorite day, I will instantly turn my frown upside down for you.
“I might be devoted, but I’ll pour up in a minute // I might pull up on you with a V12 in it // might fuck around n' have the V12 tinted // the devil is a lie, but the details in it // billion dollar corporations still penny pinching…” #NewLyrics from #PropagandaRecall new song called "DEVOTED" (notice I wasn't kidding about winning gold medals 🥇in saxophone solo contests as a youngin, there are a few more not shown).
As the Total Solar Eclipse shrouded our country in cosmic energy, there was also a new moon immediately following the events. This level of cosmic energy is POWERFUL. Be sure to harness this boost of inner wisdom and creativity. The times are ripe for the launch of great new ideas and the release of our most creative genius. The sun as well as some of our planets have moved into Leo recently, and this is bound to bring us all fire-filled ambition. As an artist, I am always seeking new ways to harness the power of cosmic knowledge in my creations as well as ride the waves of the heavens by channeling the 5th Dimension. @pharrell has a new song out with @Mikewillmadeit called #Aries (#YuGo ). Both artists are Aries and I too happen to be an Aries. Their new song subliminally explores the knowledge of cosmic knowledge, miracles, magic, and manifestation. #PropagandaRecall album coming soon.
More new music, more new videos, and an entire album is all on the way. Before I ever began rapping or making beats, I was a pianist at age 6. By age 11, I picked up the alto saxophone and won gold metals in the local solo contests for years. In high school I played in competitive marching band, jazz band, symphonic band, and more. By the time I graduated to college I transitioned into digital music production, writing, and recording music. I unleashed my thirst for sharing great lyricism, and my ability to develop my own original industry sounds. There was one young man who was there from the moment I started piano classes with our private teacher Mrs. Watts, the moment we joined band in grammar school, there in marching band in high school, and there when I started digital recording. This young man shared his digital music resources with me when I had none. Summer of 2010, my close partner in music, KJ became a victim to the violence in Chicago. It's a miracle to be alive in this small big city and I just want to dedicate this image to the loving memory of a friend who shared a lifetime of music making with me.

#throwbackthursday#RIP to my cousin Flea (center). I can't get this man off my mind. Every day I think of all the memories my family shared with him, especially all the little cousins, they miss you so much. I don't normally speak on this type of thing on social media, but my heart is very broken over this recent loss and the story behind the loss is what breaks my heart the most. 🙏🏽 Bowing my head in a moment of prayer for my cousin Flea. ✨ I definitely need to dedicate an entire song from my new album to you Cuzzo 🙌🏽
