Truly, 10,000 hours and then some later... I recorded this project in the privacy of my own home. Sometimes by ONLY the means of faith, love & support, along with the willpower to follow through. This is my first body of work where I was able to combine my artistry within the Audio & Visual landscape. This is my offering from my archives.
In part of my journey, I’ve experienced my fair share of luck within the pursuit of my longest dream. By age 16, I was signed to a record lable by 19 I was signed to a different lable – truth be told then - I had yet to reach my wisdom which has now lead to a much better story to tell. Although I loved writing, performing, and recording. I wasn’t too fond of the business aspect or at least a big portion of what I’ve experienced while being a signed artist. I walked away from the music industry though I never stopped recording.
For years I’ve continuously “closet recorded’ while making a name for my brand NO SUBLIMINALS. The universe had a way of keeping me close to my longest dream by allowing me to work with Artist... I’ve directed Music Videos, Album Artwork, assisted with Art Direction and I’ve had the pleasure of being present in many studio sessions as well as being ront row covering sold out shows.
I realized my soul may never know happiness if I didn’t claim my pursuit fully. I looked at
my experience both in front of and behind of camera as God’s gift in alignment to keep me connected to what truly brings me joy… Art + Music and the freedom to express.
While maintaining a part- time job working at Blackscale, freelancing as NO SUBLIMINALS
and being a Brand ambassador for Reebok. My tight schedule only allowed Wednesday free range to work on Have Ur Wayyy. Ultimately my only free day brought me to my rebirth as an artist, and also inspired an addition to my name. With no offence towards the religious holiday, ‘Though Respectfully the journey has been nothing short of spiritual.
I present to you.
