Last night marked a very special time in my life for me.
It's funny how some days I can sit and be mad as hell at not making any forward movement for a little while or whatever the case may be, but than I have those days that just can't hold me down like last night.
I am officially making the jump into the world of engineering and I could not be happier with my first session. Long story short Scheme knocked out 2 joints last night and I was in charge of the boards.
There are certain moments in everyone's life where they are reminded of something, and last night was one of them for me.
Moral is, don't ever short change yourself on your endeavors no matter how bad things get because right around the corner awaits a huge gift of positivity to embrace you!

I have many other amazing records that are rare and what not, but the story behind these is that of a hungry 18 yr old who knew vinyl was his addiction...

So as many of you know I was proud and honored to have released my first ever project as a producer with The Ugly Face EP back in March of this yr before heading out to SXSW. The project featured production from myself and RICKY DUBS under the name of ALTERED ETHICS. The rhymes were all blessed by my big homie DREAMTEK of the 7 ODDZ camp.
He has flipped the script and remixed 7/8 of the tracks on that EP and it giving this away as a free download to all the fans!

I know there are millions of heads out there who have been anticipating the release of this particular documentary for some time now, but I have personally been drooling at the thought of seeing this! Tribe is one of my favorite hip hop groups to ever grace the culture. Not many words need to be said about their significance cuz if you don't know, you won't know...
I had the honor of meeting the man behind this project, Michael Rappaport during a night out and man was he a cool down to earth dude!
I also would like to plug my Tribe Called Quest tribute mix that I did live on CRB Radio last yr right around this time! If you haven't heard, I've been told it's my best one so check it out below and show love on the comments!

Smooth style of rhyming with that unique monotone voice makes for a solid project.

I remember the homie selling mix CD's back when we were in high school together and to now share stages with him is quite the full circle!
I am also proud to say I co-produced the title track for this album under my collab team ALTERED ETHICS and I am damn honored that Esohel chose this track to represent the title joint for this entire project!
Heavy beats and mature rhymes = SMOOTH!

Words cannot describe how meaningful this night was for me...
I woke up the next morning feeling so humbled from all the people who showed up and presented genuine love for not only the event, but for me as an artist.
Since I have no real words to describe the depth of how dope this night was, I leave you with these....
