So I’m going through real shit right now. Life is hard every day and it’s not a “light at the end of the tunnel” situation, maybe in one or two ways I will be happier but anyways due to the constant itch from this burn I’m dealing with I look every day for something to be not just grateful for but lucky to have in my life that is unique to my life alone. When people want to be mean, I’m talking unreasonably so it is yours and yours alone to pick yourself up and remind yourself you are not the person that is being kicked when already down.
Since im an obsessive person this translates into my art or my tendencies to engage artistically all the time. Almost everything I see as having any earthly value has a component of what I would call beauty or art. For instance, it’s rare at any given minute for me to sit and only do one thing. I draw, write, make beats, film, take pictures as I drive. Now kids, don’t try this at home but I literally juggle art. It’s gotta be an illness because I live in a reality that is always expressing my other reality.
What i’m getting at is I don’t trust anyone for honesty. Over the years I have tried to have people who could be brutally honest about ideas or pieces but it always backfires because people are so emotional that they become unable to truly see. I was seeing a girl once who I swore I would have thought would be someone who would help me shape and fine tune the ideas I have struggled with. Same outcome, emotional shut down.
One person who I trust is my friend Marcus, (hit me up if you see this). Anyone who knows Marcus knows he is a very sharing person. Way way back he knew I was messin with beats so he told me I should meet his friend Transducer who I believe was finishing the Shape Shifters”Know Future”? Cut to a few months later and I’m drinking a beer with a let’s say not too petite dude who was lost like me. But we became fast friends and I am proud to say Mic is one of those rare cats who trusts me and I him to be honest. Once he literally bought all my art because it meant something to him. That’s someone I am very grateful and lucky to know and have weaved in and out of this life as nothing but homies since.
I almost went the whole day without a positive thought until I randomly heard this old track from the mighty Transducer which I love. Side note, Mic also explained the true differences between a beat maker (me) and a Producer (Him and his mentors).
much love Mic.
