New Music: Sorry Not Sorry Freestyle

I’m heading back to the studio soon and I’m so excited. I found one of the best studios in Charlotte and I can’t wait to record and hear the finished product, and most importantly get it to the speakers of The Leaders!!! Until then check out this new freestyle I just recorded literally a few minutes ago (April 1st, 2016 @ 6:38pm) to Bryson Tiller’s Sorry Not Sorry track from his project Trapsoul.

Keep It Moving

 
Dear Leader, 

In order to reach your next level, you cannot remain in the same place. If you don’t move forward, you will not be able to see the progress that you’ve made. Usually when we don’t see any progress in what we are doing, we give up. DON’T GIVE UP, IT’S A TRAP!!! When you stick to your efforts and continue pushing forward, progress will soon reveal itself. Keep your eyes on the prize!! Dream Big!!!

Efforts Breeds Excellence 

  

Dear Leader,

Effort brings satisfaction. Knowing that you did your best, you gave it your all, that alone is a reason to be proud of yourself. There are many people who don’t give challenges their best shot and as a result they don’t reach their goal. There are also many people who do actually give challenges there very best, but still somehow don’t reach there desired outcome. 

If at any point in your life you don’t reach a goal that you are aiming for, as long as you give the challenge 100% effort on your part that’s all that truly matters. Trying your best as opposed to only giving a minor effort and hoping for a major outcome is a key to personal fulfillment and happiness. 

If you don’t succeed at first even though you gave the task your very best effort, that’s okay. Try again, and again, and again until you do receive the desired outcome. You will see that giving your best each time helps you get better. So continue to strive for greatness, continue to aim higher, and continue to improve your efforts each time. You are bound to succeed and be proud of the effort you’ve put forth. With no limitations in mind, DREAM BIG!!!

Progression: The Update

This entry is just a brief update on what’s been happening as of recently on my journey to Destiny. I’m realizing that it takes a lot to be successful, a lot of determination, a lot of patience, and a lot of sleepless nights to say the least. My passion has been driving me through this journey that includes roadblocks, mental distractions, and real life obstacles. My journey has also been filled with countless amazing studio sessions, new friends, enlightening moments, and blessings on blessings on blessings!!!

NoDa Yoga 2

Over the past 3 years I feel like I’ve been preparing myself, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Along the way I’ve learned so much about life and the industries that I will be diving head first into. I get more and more excited each day about the projects I am working on and the relationships that I have been building with new people.

After not releasing music for over a year, I’ve finally began releasing music that I’ve been holding on to for what seems like forever. Hopefully you’ve had a chance to listen to and download the two new songs that I’ve released (Throwback & Chef Curry). Throwback is a cover song from about 2 or 3 years ago to Usher’s song by the same name.

CHEF CURRY COVER ART2

Chef Curry is a dope track produced by my brother Ruby Rocx. The night we made that song was a great night. It was actually the last of 3 songs from that session. After completing the first 2 songs Ruby Rocx looked over at me and said, “bro I’m feeling like doing one more before we call it a night bro.” It was a weekday and we were both kinda tired, but feeding off of each other’s energy. In my mind there was no question and no hesitation. Not even 3 full seconds later I responded, “Let’s get it bro.” It felt like he made that beat in less than 20 minutes. Instead of recording the vocals for it after he was done, I transferred the beat to my laptop and headed home.

By the time I got home an hour or so later I was wide awake and full of inspiration. I began working on some other company things for a little while then up to my room to record the vocals for Chef Curry. By the time I finished recording, the sun had come up and social media was flooded with Thanksgiving posts. After emailing the completed song back to Ruby Rocx, He insisted that I release the song the same day.

These two songs are just the first of what’s to come and I can’t wait to share more, especially my first debut single that I won’t say the name to just yet, but will be released very soon. I’m watching a Bob Marley documentary at the moment, but I’m thinking about getting a quick nap in before the sun comes up since it’s already 4:33am now. More updates coming soon, Dream Big!!!

Birthday Flashback

I had an amazing 26th birthday. I knew this day was going to be great the moment I agreed to perform in the Queens Networking Showcase. My birthday was also on Dream Big Friday so that was even more excitement for me. The best part to me was performing brand new music to a room full of people that have never seen me perform or heard my music before, except for maybe a handful of people. 110615 - Ruff 3

The 13 minutes that I performed that night was the greatest adrenaline rush in a long time, and the love I received was phenomenal. I’ve added a few photos of the performance from the Showcase to the photo gallery for you to checkout when you get a chance.

After the show my cousin Twan lead me to an unknown location… I knew my family was planning me a surprise party, but I had no clue about the details. I didn’t think Ruby Rocx knew anything about it, but He made it out also along with my manager and few close friends. My whole family was in the building and it was LIVE, hands down the best birthday I’ve ever had.

110615 - Ruff Party 2
My sister (CB Treats) blessed me with an amazing cake. I love this girl!!!!

I was grateful to be surrounded by so much love that day and to spend some of it doing the thing that I have a great passion for. With this being the first time I’ve ever performed on my birthday, I’m thinking about making this a tradition. Maybe I can have another surprise party also haha.

Til next time, Dream Big!!!
