In 2006, I began writing rhymes. For much of that time, I kept it to myself. I decided to show a close friend a rhyme I wrote and she insisted that I start recording. That's how the whole hip-hop era began for me. These songs are tracks that I recorded with my friends and, the majority, songs I recorded alone at Ramapo College. I would sneak into the studio after the classes were over and record rough demos. When I didn't have access to the studio, I relied on friends who did have access and would sneak me in. These songs were recorded between 11:30pm and 4:00am.
So, thank you Jennifer Brown, Keona Palmer, Natasha, Jonathan Milam and anyone else I forgot who used to sneak me into the studio. Thank you. You helped to create the artist I am today.
Thank you to everyone I've shown a beat or a song to. You are a part of my journey.
