I'm Coming Home

As this deployment comes to a close, I can honestly say that this has been nothing short of a life altering experience.  In one room I've seen life at my right hand and death on my left.  I've heard the whaling cries of sorrow and apology to the dead.  These things are forever burned into my memory, and with no desire to ever forget, I'll keep near the realities of life and death.  I've learned more during these short nine months then I've ever learned professionally, socially and academically.  Because of this I have no regrets.  Though hard to swallow, I know that there is reason I had to endure this, and sincerely believe some things happen for a reason.  If the reason was to become stronger, I have.  If the reason was to be wiser, I am. If the reason was to become better educated, I know. If the reason was to make clear my future path, I now see.  As I begin my travels home, I realize that I'll be bringing back more than I took.  I'm proud to say that all the experiences I'll return with has made me a better person.

King Kendrick???

     Ok, we all know what this is about.  Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's record "Control".  I honestly had nothing to say regarding this verse.  He killed it like he does on every song.  I guess I didn't expect him to toss names.  I feel Kendrick respectfully challenged those he admired. MOST of whom he called out are very capable of rising to the challenge... MAYBE!

This might just help all of hip-hop.

Check the HOT 97 video out.  I couldn't agree more.

Hip-Hop Another Level

     You have to appreciate a good band.  I've always believed that a live band should be a standard in hip-hop.  Musicianship takes everything to another level.  Check out this short Rick Ross rehearsal clip.

Still Learning ughh!

     Well I've been working hard on improving my mixes. I mean you think you have a decent mix and then one day you realize they all sound like shit. Well I guess that's the nature of progress. That is if you have a desire to improve.
  It's exciting learning and improving but it's also daunting thinking about how much further you have to go.  But I wonder. Will I ever be fully satisfied, and if I achieve satisfaction have I then become complacent???

Excited to mix this song!

     I have yet to come up with a title for the song but I know exactly what the song will be about.  Might be a little heavy on the topic but I think it'll really help someone!

About to mix this joint! by @dsverse

     I don't understand the hate that erupts when Kanye West exercises his creativity.  I honestly believe that those who resists a new sound especially aspiring artist stunt themselves by not opening up their minds to new things creatively.  People love to shout about how wack music is when they hear a synthesizer over a strong hip-hop back beat.  Expand your minds people!  I think Kanye West has long ago broken out of the boundaries of hip-hop.  You may not believe Kanye West is hip-hop, but you better believe he's a lyrical artist who's FOUNDATION is hip-hop.

Check out Kanye West New Album "Yeezus" below!
