"Feels Great To Be Dope 2" album crowdfund

“Sometimes you have to take two steps back to take ten forward.” –Nipsey Hussle

I understand it's been a while since my last release but the way life is set up....... I got married in 2016 and had my FIRST child in 2017, a BEAUTIFUL baby girl named Hope! After my last album "Feels Great To Be Dope" (2014) I had some GREAT moments in my career but LIFE said..... "Excuse me sir! You have responsibilities!!!"....And so I did what any honorable MAN would do....I decided to completely dive into my role as a HUSBAND and FATHER!

One month before my baby girl was born in 2016 I decided to lay the mic down and enjoy life with my family. This unknowingly left a void in my heart because although I was COMPLETELY happy with my family life I was HAUNTED by my creative juices wanting to flow. I actually neglected my love for creation for over a year until I fell into somewhat of a depression. The reason was because I felt like a quitter!!! Like I threw in the towel when I should've been fighting for my own personal happiness and accomplishment. At this point, I felt confident in the bond between me and my daughter AND my wife was 100% supportive of whatever I wanted to do...............It was time to continue running the marathon!!!!!

I wanted to get back out there so in 2018 I entered the Craft Syndicate/Dutchmasters music competition and WON a mentorship/collaboration with Zaytoven & the late great Nipsey Hussle! I cannot explain the magnitude of the impact of coming back from retirement and being BLESSED with such an amazing opportunity. I immediately got back in the studio and recorded soooooo much material and planned to release TONS of music in 2019.....I dropped a 6 track EP in January titled ♦️DIAMONDS♦️ with a plan to have WEEKLY releases..............

On May 31st the Lord called for one of his angels to come home. The tragic death of Nipsey Hussle definitely touched the world but on a personal level, I was devastated. Having JUST built a promising bond with Nipsey and him losing his life shortly after was much to deal with mentally......And I just stopped everything!!!! Months have passed and although I am still hurt, I have come to terms with how BLESSED I am that God granted me an experience I will cherish for the rest of my life. I truly believe God gave me special gifts for me to share with the world. And this is exactly my plan!!!!

I am currently work on my next full length album "Feels Great To Be Dope 2" which will have 33 tracks and follow Nipsey's #ProudToPay campaign blueprint offering the album at multiple price points including FREE. 33 is a blessed number, the age Jesus & Nipsey ascended and also my current age.
