10 Years Ago I Started
Making music with grand ambitions of gaining respect, being named the best rapper of all time and performing in front of thousands of fans. This egoic pursuit caused a lot of suffering. I began to compare myself with other musicians that were “further along” than I was and this caused much internal pain.
The Suffering & Unhappiness
Was so much that I stopped making music and decided that I simply wanted to be happy. This is when I began to read ancient and modern texts on spirituality. I became enthralled in everything from the Baghavad Gita to the Tao te Ching. Through literature and introspection I realized that “doing” will never make me happy, it is only in “being” where happiness and peace arises.
Another Huge Realization
Was of the limited number of breaths that each of us are to take on this planet. This realization of the brevity of life was what led me to create the content I produce now. I am grateful for every moment, every unrepeatable miracle, and while I’m here I want to reach every single heart on the planet to show them that at our core we are Love, we are free, and we are one. This attitude of service, or disappearing into my work, is the single most important variable in giving me both internal and external success.
