“Clearly, other people in this business, whether it be consumers or fans, or more importantly, the labels or the media, have the need to label me and package me as a conscious artist…The conscious rapper label correctly applies to me, because I am a conscious rapper…But this industry has demonized the term ‘consciousness,’ and has demonized the idea of positive message and music that can move people in a different direction other than debauchery,” he said.

An Artist’s greatest struggle is against time.
So it’s either going to be alone on this piece of shit or it is going to be in a full studio with all the equipment. I’m trying to be vague for the sake of you know what, but anyways. Do I go and push my way through? I mean that’s my fate is it not? All I needed was the right position to start from. The right footing.
It’s crazy how much our bodies, our souls, and our minds hate being forced to do what they don’t want. Why does this love forcing us into slavery? Why are so many people content with it? They aren’t. They are just in denial. It’s too much pride, but the suffering is supposed to make that diminish. I don’t know. All I know is that my soul is reaching for something I cannot deny it. One Love. One God.
