This is the third album since my sons have been born and the second to release on their birthday. I firmly believe that the best music of my life has been released since these two little kings have engulfed my very essence of being. To say I am grateful is an understatement. To say I understand the meaning of true joy can not be overstated. My life is complete because of them and my purpose is solidified.
Therefore, the subject matter is more reflective and positive than any project before this one. Whether dealing with the ills of the world (Grey World, Savages), the fragility of youth in this world (Caste On A Cloud, 3 21 14), or just wanting to do better for yourself (The Plus Sign, Good Person, Judge-Meant, Jaded Bliss), this album is an exercise of wanting to do the right thing when everyone else is doing wrong.
The production is also a murderer's row of producers from around my Queens Galaxy way (Xplicit, Carnage, Silensir, S.H.E.N., Tores, Greg Moore) to Overseas (Kesti, Funky Notes, DJ Rhum 1). Salute to Odweeyne of So Cracked Labs for the dope cuts. Salute to everyone who participated and dropped a verse, beat, cuts or just some words of wisdom to help make the project better.
And special shot out to Sheldon "Finsta" Smith for the co-production on each track, engineering magic, mixing and mastering. My music has never sounded this good and your effort is appreciated brother.
So once again, if your a fan of brainy lyricism and Golden Era New York Boom-Bap production, then look no further. And if your feeling it, all i ask if that you spread the word. Continued blessings as always Party People.
