Sorry, I did it again..

So according to my google analytics there’s someone out there still checkin for this.. Busy as I am, its only right I hit yall with an update.

I’ve been busy as hell with the release of ADHD, which I’m pleased to announce has gotten a great response so far..Shoutout to Kev Knottingham, Rock the Dub, Hip Hop is Read, Bostonianz617, Dotgotit, Pen and Sword, TittyPuncher (yes u read that right), The Leakage, Fresh Hip Hop Music, Thats Major, Bsand3s, and any other blog I might’ve forgot to mention that showed love.

I’ve also been serving as the head of marketing for Scope Urban Apparel and still looking for a day job (I’m not one of those bloggers that makes a living off it).  In any event, its been a long time, and I shouldn’t have left you, without.. blah blah blah yall know the Rakim sh*t.

So, what’s new with me? Same sh*t different day, music, disgruntled twitter rants, and failed relationships. We had a very successful release party for ADHD at Kulturez in Harvard Square.. Since then I’ve pretty much been spending my nights in the studio working on new material, and my days hunting down Hip Hop celebrities to endorse Scope.

Its been fun. Last week, I met Tyler and those crazy Odd Future delinquents at the much publicized “riot” at the Newbury Comics in-store. I also put some new joints out myself.

I can’t guarantee how consistent I’ll be with keeping up with this blog but I will try to keep yall updated as much as possible. Don’t forget I also have a tumblr which I check a lot more often so don’t think I’ve disappeared completely from cyberspace. Just know bein a RapperSlashBlogger is a lot harder than it looks so cut me some slack.

Back 4 the 3rd Tyme..

The thing is, when you have a life, it gets very difficult to keep a blog updated constantly with new material.. Especially when you are the sole-contributor.. If there’s any other rappers out there who want to contribute your more than welcome, the more the merrier.. In any event I’m back on this, Happy belated new year to everybody who still bothers to check this, and happy 22nd birthday to me!

1st things 1st… ADHD will be out very soon and I just put out a new music video! I got mixed reviews about my self-edited, overly artsy piece for Concerto, so Rene Dongo and I teamed up once again to put some visuals with the record, “1Tyme4urMynd”. The song and video mark a slightly new direction in my work, a more personal and honest approach as far as the lyrics go. With ADHD, I tried not to limit myself to “sounding like a conscious rapper” when it came to the writing, it was a a risk in terms of how I expect people to react, but so far I am extremely happy with the results. With 1tyme4urmynd, Rah Intelligence supplied a beat that starts off very dark and sinister sounding.. It lets the sun come out for just a moment before going right back into that dark place – very much a reflection of where I was at mentally while writing.. I left song structure alone and decided to just rhyme all the way through the record as opposed to trying to come up with a hook.. When Arcitype and I recorded it, we got it in one take with no punches.

Note the symbolic transitions and Rene’s use of contrasting images throughout the piece. I guarantee your going to want to watch this more than once…

Brugal, Blunts, & PBR

We definitely tried to do something completely different here. To accompany the Concerto piece I recently released off of the ADHD project, I edited footage Jacob took of me in our top secret location. I know this is something that will get mixed reactions given the content, but I feel like this works with the song in showing the depression that I talk about in the record and what I was going through while writing a lot of the material for ADHD. The quality of the footage should’ve come out better given the camera we used, but something got lost in the rendering. I’m still working this out, I haven’t edited film in a long time and I used imovie for this so cut me some slack. Other then that, Jake shot this with his new camera that takes really nice photos and video.. what do you think..?
