Traveling the world at a young age and having a mother obessed with Micheal Jackson, music became an intrinsic part of my life. Music is sound, and sound is vibration. Everything that lives, vibrates, thus everything emits sound or noise. these sounds and noises have different psycological effects on the brain in every aspect- from how and at what rate the nureons fire (physical), what the mind produces as far as thoughts and mode of thinking (mental), and lastly the combination of one's mental state with that of the body that allows one to have revaltions and see and feel things beyond this dimension of existance (spiritual). I combine my love for music and philosphy everytime i tackle a peice of music either editing, mixing, or composing it myself. I am also very passionate about the betterment of the Afro-centric and other underdeveloped communities, and I attempt to use my musical ability to ressurect the truth and life of humanity with the overstanding that we are all vibrations trying to find the most harmonious way to live.
