Ive got a habit of writing about everything I go through.
They were supporting us. We were still in school, my older brother was watching me. He was like going on 18, about to graduate. For the last couple of years he was doing I was just running through highschool and ended up getting kicked out.
I grew up with it. Any kind of drum you put in front of me, I dont care what kind I can bang it out.
Im weeding them out. People would normally like it, but I hate the fact that I gotta let them down. I dont like to disappoint people.
I didnt really care about the masses. Its something that I did for my own satisfaction. I dont drink, I dont get high. Its like my way of saying this is me.
Trouble evolved from the struggles I went through and what I did and am still doing to correct those things.
I think it could be any nationality. Its just a matter of bumping into em. I know that here in the States its hard to bump into them right away because they all been tainted a certain way. They all look at men in a certain way. Not saying that its their fault, cuz here in the States guys do a lot of things to make women treat them the way they treat them too. Naturally when they see me, they assume Im like everybody else.
Women will start realizing why men dont treat them like ladies. Men are looking at them like youre trying to be like me. Femininity is all out the window. The sweetness, the love aspect of it, the emotional part of the woman is gone because she walks around with her guard up.
An American thing! In Africa, women dont do that. In Africa men are treated differently there. Here is like theres really no difference between a man and a woman besides sex. Like women do everything men are doing so after a while men start treating the women like men.
Yeah, youd catch me wearing suits the whole time. Just not when Im in my artist mode. Probably when Im in my executive mode, coming out of a building or something, youd catch me in a suit.
Me and my older brother had our own crib in New Jersey. We had the car, driving around with no license.
Theyre mad traditional. The thing was at the time I was living in Jersey they were in Atlanta. In Africa they make you go on your own at an early age like around 14 or 15.
I look mad young. I look younger than I am, way younger.
As I started growing up, living a little and listening to the lyrics, I realized that I was going through a lot of stuff these rappers were talking about and I could relate.
Im looking for someone whos not trying to compete against me. Im looking for a woman thats willing to be a woman. Let me do the manly things, she do the female-y things. Her 50 part, I do my 50 part and keep moving. I know its like today a lot of women like to compete against guys. Like they feel like I can do it myself I dont need no man. I dont like that attitude.
When I sing the sound comes from the mood that I am in. These records are coming straight from the heart.
Eventually they raided my locker and I was kicked out of highschool, which was in Jersey City and I couldnt go to no school in the district so I had to do my last year in Bayonne Highscool, upstate.
I was outta control. Anything you needed, I had it. I mean anything. From candy, to bullets. I had test questions for every test. Everything you need I had you. You didnt study you needed answers to the test I had you.
Im a studio musician. You get me in the studio I can play an accordion. 4 bars and loop it back. Percussion is my main field.
I grew up listening to everything outside hip-hop. Hip-hop came later in my life. I grew up listening to Black Uhuru, Bob Marley, Tracy Chapman, the names just keep going. From Creed to Hootie and the Blowfish to 3 Doors Down to Guns and Roses, you name it. When you look at my closet of music youre gonna find a little something of everything. You barely might find any rap. Only rap CD you might find is Fugees, 2Pac and Biggie.
