I deserve musical talent. I should be taking voice lessons. I shouldn't have sold my drums for Reason music studio. I read blogs, steal music, and listen to everything i have all day. On my journey of collecting the 5,000+ tracks I've accrued over the past few months, I've learned something: you gotta be pretty to sound pretty.
I've talked with some heads at Stones Throw (they'll never tell you whom Madlib samples), Numero Group (another Columbus, Ohio based release is COMIN SOON), and artists themselves (Bullion, Jon Baken, Girl Talk, Corey Henderson, and even a frank email from Sharon Jones' camp). This 'journey' was spurred from base human emotion. I fell in love and suddenly the Pieces of Peace started bumping more than Lil' Wayne.
I'm too young to be a scholar. I'm a self-educated Soulster born in a very wrong decade.
