Influences and Individuals

I'm very happy that there are people in this world that inspire me in many ways. Musically I have a lot of tracks from various artist of many genres that push me to higher levels.  Pete Rock, madlib, Peanut butter wolf, Dj Premier, Cool Herc, Rza, Dj shadow, E.L.P , Miles Davis, Bach, led zep, vortex cookies, etc the list could go on forever. My point is that I listen to the Passion that each of these people have put into there songs, each one mentioned here and ones not mentioned, they took precious time to create there master pieces. Inspiration is all around us musically and in our everyday lives.
Life inspiring events good or bad teaches us various things on many different levels. Just know that life is meant to be enjoyed, You the reader along with myself were placed here on this planet to make our mark in the world. Whether its a pebble thrown into a pond that cause's a ripple effect, or A Hug, or a smile, or a great piece of music, or words from your mouth, All these things are so influential depending on what your intent is behind these things. If you breathe Negativity you will be give out and influence in a negative manner, If you breathe life and positiveness then you breathe life into others and fill them with positive vibes.

When your are influenced by a person (say by music for example) my advise to you is to go your own route with it, do not try to emulate this persons style, sound, or context, but rather use the bits that you have received by listening or watching to feed your ideas, People put allot of thought and passion into there ideas/Projects and the last thing someone wants is a individual that is just copying everything they do, they say that imitation is a form of flattery ..... maybe back then but as time has proven things change, The goal here is to be original at the same time you are being influenced, and using that influence to grow...People should not act like Xerox paper. Also if you are deliberately "taking" Ideas, style, context of your mentors, that makes you are the worst kind of student and in turn makes you a shallow human being. Remember to breathe life not take it away. People are more hip to what you are doing then they tend to lead on when you have deceit in your heart/actions. In everything you do there should be truth. In every step you take in life it should be true and 100% pure. Lead by positive example this is what makes great inspirational people.

There are leeches out there no doubt about it, there always will be. Just learn how to get rid of people like that. They will do you know good in life as well, not just music. Trust me Ive had my share and still to this day I have to trust my judgement and just pick them off one by one. I think I speak for the majority when i say "I don't like being taking advantage of" , I absolutely can not stand it!!! This is why when I'm sure things are going south i have a Auto-matic disconnect attitude when it comes to people that just "Act".

With that being said Please Understand that my movements are always foward, Life/Time doesnt stop for no man, It keeps going long after we are gone, and ill be #$@#ed if I let someone just come in and play me for a fool. Im passionate about my craft just as you the reader are passionate with a part in your life. Ive worked extremely hard at getting where im at in life and im not gonna just let a person or persons come in and con me to get the Map to where im at. Ive found my own way ....can you find your own?? This is what i love and Ill Protect it with my life.

Music is Life
Life is Love

Life is good

I really feel that life has handed me a golden gift. I'm really blessed to be given this gift of music, Helping out fellow musicians is a treat as long as they don't try to suck ya dry in the process, if that's the case I press the off button. But for the ppl eager to learn I welcome it as long as your heart is pure with music and not greed.

On a different note ;)
My dreams of playing out live with my music is coming to light, I have been doing alot of searching on what and where would be a good road to go down. I've decided to take the road less traveled. What road is that you may ask....well I guess your gonna haven't stay tuned.

As far as whats been baking in the oven ... I can tell you this.... If I was Willy wonka and made beats they would be swwweeeeeeeet!!!!!! Haha!!! Zang!

Nyc Skyline video is out!!!!!

Been away for what seems like a long time , but Ive returned :)

  • Wow October you've brought the Fall weather, Love this weather! I get to break out the Hoodies, Nothing better then a nice comfy warm hoodie and cup of Coffee (not starbucks ... Real Coffee!!) to get ya going. (:::SIDE NOTE::-Have you ppl seen the New Starbucks Size its called the Trenta!! First a fact about this drink that will make you think .. At 916 mL, the Trenta is actually larger than the average capacity of the adult human stomach with the adult human stomach with a average capacity of 900ml!!! Ppl starbucks is trying to kill you lol i mean look at this thing        

Trenta in Italian means "acid reflux"............jk ....but  i'll stick with my corner stand small cup of real coffee!

  •  Its funny i wasn't a big Coffee drinker till i started working in the City. Its like some subconscious thing that all New Yorkers have to have. Strange.... I'm more so a Tea Guy....But I digress. So i found out Ive been driving around with no rear breaks for like 1 yrs ( I Kidd you not) ... that's how bizzy Ive been that i haven't even noticed till i went to brake the other day and it sounded like a violin section tuning up for a horror movie. It was Bad lol. I thanked God that me and the wife were kept safe. So rather then pay out the ass for repairs I bought the rotors and Break pads and decided to throw some money my brothers way, hes the only "mechanic" i trust. So now its fixed! Woooot.....Exciting stuff right ::rolls eyes::: Hey man your here reading this so it must be interesting....
Well The ride into work today confirms that there are ppl in this world that have no common sense. I think its a lost trait. It never fails that no matter where i sit there has to be some person that has to talk on there phone loud!!!! I don't wanna hear how Keisha was sick and you had to hold her weave up while she yakk'd in the toilet. I mean seriously unless your a tween and your up talking on the phone i don't expect that from a grown ass man at 5:30am. Next time it happens I'm gonna pull out my phone and have a Fake convo and Include the words "This Guy"  and "wont stfu" also "Sitting Right Behind me" with a "yea i don't think he knows its 5:30 in the MORNING" then I might sprinkle a "Hey Can you keep it down I'm Talking on my phone!!!"
or maybe next time ill hand him one of these cards

On to bigger and better things.
I ate these wings last night from villamonte and I'm paying for them now (i have the best segways).....8 bucks it cost to have your ass burn like it was the fourth of July....
Gezzzz there was more then rockets with Red glares I can tell you that dear sirs and maams. lol I'm sorry I'm in Rare form this morning, and hey my rants are mild compare to the rest of the stuff on the Interwebs.

Music wise Ive been working on some gems and reassessing my goals and tighten up all the looses ends, more to come on the music front.
Ok back to the Grind
Now where's my Big gulp???

Staying focused...

Don't let outside negative influences hinder your goals in music....there are going to always be a select group of people that are gonna try to come down on your tracks or musical projects...they do this for one reason.1. They are trying to destroy your gift because they see you as a threat, this is because they are not confident in themselves and what they can accomplish if they just let someone inspire them. These type of people should always be pushed to the side out the way....anything that is poisonous to your body should be eliminated from your field of sight and sound...Cast these anchors to the sea, let them sink on there own... we as human beings weren't ment to carry such were put here to move forward...over the obstacles...that's what brings you to a higher level...

Don't be that guy/gal

I've been in many bands from nyc to California to Chicago to nj....played countless shows infront of thousands of ppl...and I've learned who I can stand and who I can't stand....I can work with anyone that has a "TRUE" LOVE for music and creates it for The sole purpose of creating...who I can't work with is ppl that get jealous of a persons talent because they have some deep rooted issues of low self esteem...if anything that person that has a talent you are envious about should inspire you to grow as a musician...I have had certain band members makeup rumours about me to get me kicked out of a band, all because they weren't true musicians and they felt I was stealing there "thunder" I'm sorry but if you looking for the spotlight and that's all your thinking about when your playing your instrument do yourself and the world a favor an burn your instruments...anyone reading this that is a "True" MUSICIAN/LOVER OF MUSIC will understand what I'm saying..stardom is for suckers!! I'd rather just shine bright all by myself with my love for musical creation then share a stage with unprofessionals...don't get me wrong I don't mind getting paid for what I do but the fact of the matter is I love music and rest of the reason why I do music is because the passion in me makes me wanna create music I don't care for the spotlight..

being real.....

Ya know I get these emails saying oh your dropping positions on Reverbnation you need your music to come out faster...granted I agree with getting my music out here ASAP....but I'm not letting a "numbered position" get me all frazzled....yes it nice to be in the top 100...I guess....but I make music to make music...don't get me wrong I would love to get paid for my talents and I believe in my heart that I will...but what's on my mind the most is translating what's inside of me to musical matter how long it takes....this is art ppl....this is love for your art/talent....I know that there's ppl out there that have ears open to receive a message that they have been longing to music brings that message of positives, and great energy /love and I hope you all can hear the large amounts of Passion I put into each track....with that being said next week I will be uploading the two new tracks of which I spoke of...and one might be available to download for a limited time...then when that's said and done...I will initiate my contract with website distributors inside and outside of reverbnation.....why limit yourself to one path...all paths lead to one destination...
