Breakdown 4 of your best records and what they mean.
”Turn it Up” this song is like a warning to the music industry. Just when you thought I was going to die out or just when you thought this was my best music, I am about to turn it up!
“Bout My Business” this song is talking about I mean business when it comes to me. I’m about my money and closing deals. I am more than just a music artist, I am a business man. I own my own label, film company, clothing line, comic book, magazine and a slew of other things. I’m a boss. I’m Bout my Business.
“Raise Your Weapon ft Iggy Azalea” this song is letting every male and female rapper know who the best rappers are for the future. Raise your weapon means come with your best lyrical onslaught and I bet you still will get served by me or Iggy Azalea.
“Money 2 Go ft Hookman” this song is a fun record about the thing that everybody on this planet works for, money. I display a certain type of demeanor and confidence on this record that I don’t usually show. I promise this is going to be a lot of listener’s favorite song, not to mention the beat is ridiculous.
What do you want people to get from your album after listening to it?
I want the people to understand I am something everybody will have to get use to. I am not a here today and gone tomorrow artist. I want the listeners to know that hard work pays off no matter how long it takes. I promise that if you just keep driving towards a destination, eventually you will arrive at that destination. I want to thank all of my fans, friends, followers, and fam who have believed since day one, and I also want to thank the ones who will soon become one of the following and in due time we all can tell the industry “ITOLDUSO.”
