After graduating exactly one year ago today, I thought about the expectations that come with having a degree. Entry level interviews, 8+ hr days at a desk, paying dues (and loans), and gradually working for eventual promotions. I, like many of my classmates, began to take part in this process, and almost accepted a few offers, but I didn't see myself fitting into that scenario.
I came to realize that the music industry isn't much different from the entry level process. Applying to jobs is like submitting music to blogs - it all starts with the belief in yourself that you're qualified. ENTRY LEVEL is a mindset -- put 100% into whatever you do from the start and have the end goal in mind and you'll get to where you want to be.
My most recent project was a collaborative EP with my older brother WES. My brother was my original inspiration to start rapping when I was 15, he pushed me to be the MC I am today. Until this project, we had only done a few songs together here and there.
