This album tells a lot about my life from my childhood abuse to me being an outcast & feuding with other rappers & riding recumbents.
From recording on cassetts to CDs & mp3s, I've had my share in expierence in recorded & from Selling CDs in local music stores to having Mp3s on itunes, amazonmp3, Rhapsody (including yahoo music among others, I came a long way from rhymin with no beats to Making mp3s & CDs over professional beats. The ringtones & music videos on major retailers & vinyl are my next move. I was born 4/21/1985 OHSU Hospitial in Portland, OR. My dad left my mom when my brother was born, so I was raised by my mom until I was 3 when she was homeless, so my great aunt took me in raised me til I was almost 9. During that time, I was always rowdy & got into trouble in school when I was going to Woodlawn Elementry School. Over a month b4 I turned 9, my father took me & my brother from my great aunt & Grand parents & took us to Everette, WA. I still got in trouble in school, but I cooled down some on that as I got older. 3 months later, my dad started abusing & molestin me (I'm not going into any detail on that even tho I never spoke publicly about being molested by my dad except in July1998, But the same thing happened in june 1998 & june 1994) My dad also beat me with a fishing pole & made me stand in a sitting potition. My dad's xwife's parents always hit me in the face & just like my dad, they made me go without food as a punishment for bad behavier. (Don't judge me) I got an interest in Hip Hop in 2001 when my brother plaid Eminem's "Marahal Mathers LP". It was a song he did about a fan wno writes him 3 letters then drives off a bridge (I thought thas was funny to watch). That was when I lived in Ohio. After the first year of rappn, I got better @ it tho i wasn't eble to record or rhyme over beats until I came back to Portland, Oregon (my birth place) I was rhymin on micro cassettes aftes someone stole the first tape I recorded over cassio beats. My raps were about evil until 2006 when i stopped recording on cassettes & started puttin my songs on CDs & mp3s.
