It's funny that I'm here writing this, because before I discovered KiD CuDi's Soundtrack 2 My Life, I didn't like rap or hip hop at all. I was about 15 then, and it changed my life in more ways than I'm sure I'm giving credit for. My biggest take away, was the knowledge that anyone could take their pain, and turn it into power with music. I had a lot of anxiety growing up, and writing music became a therapy of sorts for me. I never contemplated taking it seriously, but I realized as I made my way through life music was one of the few things that's remained consistent. I decided around the beginning of the pandemic last year that I didn't just want music to be my therapy anymore. I wanted it to become my livelihood. I wanted to spend my days doing things I loved, with people that had my back, so the work started. I started saving up for equipment, and buying them piece by piece till I could do whatever I wanted creatively without having to rely on others. Fast forward about a year or so, and I've been making great connections with local artists and surrounding myself with motivated people, that I'm super appreciative to have in my circle.
When people see this music video, there's probably a lot of questions and for good reason. Why's he wearing a mask? Why's he got Mike's Hard Lemonade in his video? I get people asking those kind of questions. I was born with the Mask, and I am the Mask. It's a symbol, and not just for mischief. The music I want to make is bigger than my own individuality. I want to be a voice for people falling on hard times like KiD CuDi was for me, but in my own way. The music video for YKTV wasn't even planned out, it was just a genuine moment between friends at a fire and I felt I needed to capture it. Hopefully that's how people begin to perceive my music, as i progress more as an artist. The only thing I know for sure, is that BIG change is coming.
