I'm going to start off by saying:
THIS IS NOT A CONTEST.
This is about creating dialogue on pressing matters through music, our universal language and as always, a form of expression, healing and discussion.
I wrote the song "It's About That Time" months ago and thought it would be fitting for the upcoming album but now realize there is no better time than the present.
I'm delivering this version to you in a different form.
I recorded the initial chorus + first verse, and ask for anyone that would like to to record their own second verse + rendition of the chorus to do so.
Please feel free and open to reflect upon your personal thoughts, feelings, emotions… whatever it is. Then share it with myself and ALL OF US, via Soundcloud, Bandcamp, or whichever platforms you prefer.
I find music to not only be therapeutic in times of stress but also one of the most powerful ways to communicate when talking, sometimes ceases to be effective. I didn't feel I had the time or energy to mix and master the song, but I wanted to share it with everyone in the community so you can contribute to it regardless if you rap, sing, scat, play the fiddle… if you're black, white, small, tall, whatever.
As my fans know I'm not actively heavy on social networking and I speak more through my music.
So let's "talk" and share our conversation through music with everyone.
Thank you and peace.
