How Could I…
You can always expect the realest lyrics and real life situations that I’m experiencing in my life. No matter how raw it is I’ll internalize it & put it into my music. I made this song after my 2nd heart surgery. I was in a dark place at that time and even with my surgery being successful I was starting all over again ,my rebirth.
I couldn’t believe I’m in my early twenties having to use a walker to walk again, but day by day with my belief in God, my wife & family by my side I made it through.
When I recorded “How Could I” I was in EverStar Studio’s & Serge the engineer looked at me after I finished recording and he told me the track is deep & that he can feel & hear my pain. When I let my manager hear it , her words were you’ve evolved.
I wrote through the pain of my surgery, the pain of long term friends turning their backs on me, the pain of seeing my wife, kids & family & what I’m putting them through. The pain of not knowing what’s to come but having faith in my future.
I currently reside in Decatur Georgia…
the music scene is very versatile with the different genres of music . You have the nightlife club scene in downtown atlanta & sports bars & lounges in Stone Mountain ,Decatur,Atlanta etc. Which I frequent a lot for open mic showcases with the team. Ex: Joe’s bar & lounge , LaCura, The Palace, Raymok Bar, The party room, Level 2, Chit Chat etc.
I feel positive about the industry & I know as long as you work hard & stay focused you can accomplish great things. The pros for me would be building my fan base & being a mentor & role model, relating to & having the platform to reach out to others suffering from diseases & illnesses,traveling learning & gaining knowledge from new experiences & networking with people who have been in the industry for a long period of time . As for the cons I’ve experienced broken promises, & promoters not fulfilling their end of the bargain & taking your money but not giving you what you paid for ..
There are quite a few people…
that come to my mind but the person that stands out is Lil Boosie..I know he battles with cancer & diabetes. I would want to know how he makes it through with his constant battle with his health?How he handles the exposure of being a popular artist?& the fact that so many people depend on him? Does he ever cry? Is there anything that he wants to do that he hasn’t done already ?
