Brand New Me and You

"I don't say 'I love you' 'cause the way I feel is greater."
-Black Thought

A few weeks ago, Def, director Terrance Wilmore and I were discussing music, shooting a video and watching little Aidan revel in the wonder that is a matchbox car lightning loop track. The subject came up of music and the love for it all...
Here's the bottom line: Music is work. Even if it's the type you don't mind, it's still not as easy as making an impression on the couch. Video shoots are tedious, song writing and producing can be frustrating, promo is a constant, nervous balance between career advancement and integrity preservation, and rehearsals and recording take much time and patience. None of it is easy, but we press on not because we love it. We passed love years ago. We press on because we couldn't imagine NOT pressing on. It's not a choice. We're shackled to it for life. Talking about success or failure is a waste of time. It simply must be done.

Bless Up,
