The Soundtrack To My Life

March 30, 2010 Leave a comment

Music is my life. I eat, sleep, and breath it. So over the last couple of years I’ve been creating a soundtrack to my life. After a lot of thought I finally came up with songs that I feel define me. I have added and subtracted songs over the years and some have remained from the beginning. The track listing is in order, not from favorite to least favorite, but more like music that tells a story of my life from beginning to end.

The soundtrack touches on everything from love, to family, to faith, to songs dedicated to my wife and children.  I’m sure the list will change again at some point.

So take a look..if you havn’t heard some of the songs feel free to download them.

Video: Lyricism and Capitalism

March 2, 2010 Leave a comment

Here is some new commentary from one of my favorite video bloggers vloggers out there, Jay Smooth. He touches on the current state of lyricism in hip-hop and how it doesn’t always equate to longevity in the industry;  something I’ve been saying for a while now. Jay always speaks the Truth, so expect to see a lot of his video’s on this blog.
