As a artist i am open to collab but i began I with a good friend, Junior Burris aka Lil' J, but he no longer does Hip-Hop period.
In times past I had to realize that since I always recorded myself, I need to honor God and my family with the understanding to take that project in a larger more beneficial scope. I took me 4 years (started rapping in 1999) to learn that and since I'm less hard headed and more willing to learn now my project is off to a good foot despite many financial set backs in the beginning.
But now my production skills has progressed a lot and have had enough material given to me (along with what Beats I have made and the very few that I've bought) I now have enough material to record about 2-4 CD's!THE biggest factor that helped contribute to the growth and ministry of this particular field was in latter end of 2001 when I decided to leave behind the grasp of the world and fully commit to God. So with no longer playing closet chrisitan, seeking to move forward in my gifts and calling, and deciding to move from the world, in January 2002 the Lord filled me with the Holy Spirit. Now the journey hasn't been all bread and butter, and I have slipped and slid and am still learning, but now things are looking out for the better and things are moving up! God bless you with the Spirit of prayer in this time!
I've played at a number of live venues. I had the opportunity to play before a crowd of 400 people at a Halloween Freak night event, first straight artist to work with the community in this region. The crowd's response was amazing and gained a new branch of fans/followers.
