I do a music therapy group for incarcerated youth. In that group we do an exercise called The History of Me, where we chart out our lives and look for purpose all along the way. We have to confront some very ugly things on this timeline, as well the beautiful. […] One of the youth from a recent group recorded the hook for me in facility, then paroled. We lost touch after a few weeks. I learned later that he ran from police and was killed in a shootout. I went into the studio that night and did my verses through tears. Unfortunately, the quality of his chorus was bad and I had to re-record it myself, but his heart is still all throughout the song.
Das Statement spricht für sich! Eine traurige Geschichte und zugleich eine Sache die Hoffnung gibt, dass es noch Leute gibt, die solche Gruppen leiten und hoffentlich dem Rest der Gruppe helfen konnten. Big Ups an Proxy! Sein Album Magnificent ist seit Anfang September draußen und ist bei mir in der Pipeline.
