The picture itself was taken by a man named Lawrence Burney during the summer of 2012. I had just returned from a trip to Chicago to my hometown of Baltimore and was experiencing what people like to term "cognitive dissonance". For all the good that I had been able to engineer on my own, the bleak reality of life as it is in Bmore was starting to take a toll on my sanity. I knew what I had to do to apply the lessons that I learned on my trip and that began with shedding the "image" of who I used to be.
Ultimately, this is what " " is all about - showing and proving to Self what you claim to be vs. what you really are. Sometimes that takes a change of perspective to accomplish. Peace to the young spitter J3rry Homes and the incredible producer '92 Colby for helping me to express these thoughts on our track. And a special shoutout to the #trueOGseries team for helping to film the video. Please vibe, share & stay tuned for my new album, "The Paradox of Apathy". It's coming, I promise!
