I’m hear to inspire people who go through hard times. I have had to be very strong for myself and my family. I have always kept my faith and believed that I could heal and keep getting up even when health and people knock me down. This has made huge changes in my life but I discovered that if I keep my family around me and put my voice in prayer I can achieve anything.
How Could I…
You can always expect the realest lyrics and real life situations that I’m experiencing in my life. No matter how raw it is I’ll internalize it & put it into my music. I made this song after my 2nd heart surgery. I was in a dark place at that time and even with my surgery being successful I was starting all over again, my rebirth.
I couldn’t believe I’m in my early twenties having to use a walker to walk again, but day by day with my belief in God, my wife & family by my side I made it through.
When I recorded “How Could I” I was in EverStar Studio’s & Serge the engineer looked at me after I finished recording and he told me the track is deep & that he can feel & hear my pain. When I let my manager hear it , her words were you’ve evolved.
I wrote through the pain of my surgery, the pain of long term friends turning their backs on me, the pain of seeing my wife, kids & family & what I’m putting them through. The pain of not knowing what’s to come but having faith in my future.
I currently reside in Decatur Georgia…
the music scene is very versatile with the different genres of music . You have the nightlife club scene in downtown atlanta & sports bars & lounges in Stone Mountain, Decatur, Atlanta etc. Which I frequent a lot for open mic showcases with the team. Ex: Joe’s bar & lounge , LaCura, The Palace, Raymok Bar, The party room, Level 2, Chit Chat etc.
I feel positive about the industry & I know as long as you work hard & stay focused you can accomplish great things. The pros for me would be building my fan base & being a mentor & role model, relating to & having the platform to reach out to others suffering from diseases & illnesses,traveling learning & gaining knowledge from new experiences & networking with people who have been in the industry for a long period of time. As for the cons I’ve experienced broken promises, & promoters not fulfilling their end of the bargain & taking your money but not giving you what you paid for …
There are quite a few people…
that come to my mind but the person that stands out is Lil Boosie..I know he battles with cancer & diabetes. I would want to know how he makes it through with his constant battle with his health? How he handles the exposure of being a popular artist?& the fact that so many people depend on him? Does he ever cry? Is there anything that he wants to do that he hasn’t done already?
