Written By Me…

With gifts come curses. I’ll be the first to admit that I never really took this as seriously as I should have. I’ve written since I could remember. I wrote when no one knew I was writing. It’s always been so second nature to me that when I was blessed to do it as a living, I prolly didn’t think as much of it as I should’ve. I’ve always been pretty confident even when I had no real reason to be lol… but when your words get a platform it’s very important to put together the right ones. When your words are a gift to others you have to be mindful that they don’t become poison… there’s a fine line to walk when you write from the heart.

How can you control how your words are received? I guess it’s done a couple different ways… You can rate everything “PC” and write to not upset anyone. You could focus on positive things and report from a positive standpoint, but the world we live in is far from positive at the moment. Are you always in a positive state of mind? I’m surely not. Sometimes I’m fucking mad. I guess it’s also possible to take the side of the most people. That puts you on the winning side right? Can’t beat them join them… right? None of that is from the heart though. I’ve learned that whatever you create, if you haven’t done it from the heart, the experience of that creation is far less powerful. It’s not as fun. It doesn’t touch in the way that makes you feel good inside even if you find a way to monetize it…Even if it looks nice and shiny on the face. People always ask me “Hey what happened with you and Cash Money?”

This did…

Resolutions are cliché but from 2018 everything written by me will be from the proper place… My heart. I began my career under the tutelage of some legendary musicians. When I found a way to monetize my music I began to learn from legendary business people. Over it all I had to figure out the best way to handle things written by me. Business has a way of taking over before you know it, especially when you have to wear both hats, but in essence it’s completely about the music now more than ever. I’m lead to believe that there aren’t many people making music these days that are still making it as their primary business. If so, more times than not that’s a recipe for failure nowadays. If you can manage to do it, more power to you. I’ve found that the new music model has taken away a ton of pressure to be honest.

The rest of your TQ music experience will be as it started. No pressure. No business. All heart. All real…

It doesn’t really take much anymore. Find a group of people who like what you do naturally. I love new fans… Different kinds of fans. I’ve always wanted to write to the masses. Most times I’ve gotten into situations where the delivery had a lot to do with the profits so business took a front seat. Thank God it was all written by me…?. Thing about new fans is that they weren’t there for the journey. If they became a fan off of some sound exploration and fun, then next time around when I explore something else, where does that leave them? Just because I love a lot of different genres of music doesn’t mean everybody else does.

I’m in the 4th quarter of a game that started over 20 years ago. I will return to where I came from…
