Its 2011 and its time to get down to business. I’m almost at the personal download goal I wanted to reachand the singles have been selected for the mixtape. The official 3 singles will be I’m Da Man, Cakin Witchu, & Imma. Got big plans for 2011. I’ve read a few reviews on my mixtape and I appreciate being mentioned with the names they are mentioning me in whether its “he’s just as good as such & such” or “he’s no such & such”. Like i told yall before at least 90% of this mixtape was written in 07/08! That’s 3-4 years ago lol. I will show everyone the significant difference come my next mixtape Ghetto Gospel that I’ve officially started working on since last week. Till then.. do me a favor and put one friend up on me a day.

Congrats to Me & @DreFilms hitting 30k views on youtube with this video. This song has yet to hit major sites its moving off my little snowball soon to be a avalanche. Just might be the realest shit I ever wrote. One of the 19 songs on my mixtape. Glad to see my mixtape spreading on a daily. Me & Dre got alot of videos coming from off the tape very soon.
2 Months in officially today And I’m happy with the progress that the mixtape is making. I am now in video shoot mode for all of the songs with my homie @DREFILMS ( www.drefilms.com ) .. more happy of the feedback I’m getting from the My Will video.. All i wanna do is drop real shit, and for people to appreciate that I’m doing that rather than that gimmicky bullshit makes me excited because I haven’t even gotten a chance to showcase my talent yet. TFI was pretty much written 2/3 yrs ago. The new stuff I’m working on is crazy.. concept wise, flow wise, production wise. But for now bump this TFI. Thank you again to all the producers who contributed to it Feb,Bad Guy, Da Supastarz, C4, Adamack, Vybe, & Bigg D. And a big thank you to everyone who downloaded it and gave it a honest chance. I got alot of shit up my sleeve and alot of people to shit on as well. Call me petty but if you knew the things I go through trying to break in Miami you would feel me. Message to you niggas tryna blackball me, YOU CAN NOT, AND YOU WILL NOT STOP ME. This here what I’m about to do is not by default, its by design.. design by God. I’d love to see yall try to stop what he’s got planned lol. 1
P.S we are about 1100 short of the download goal and promo hasn’t even started. That’s crazy.
WE ARE ONE DAY AWAY!!! THIS IS THE PART WHERE I’VE TALKED SO MUCH SHIT TO MAKE PEOPLE WANNA DOWNLOAD IT NOW I’M WONDERING IF ANYBODY WILL EVEN LIKE THE SHIT LOL!!! SO THAT WOULD MAKE ME NERVOUS RIGHT? LOL! WELL WELL WELL.. LEMMIE SEE.. I THINK THAT I DID THE BEST I COULD AS FAR AS SONG SELECTION TO GIVE IT A GOOD BALANCE FOR THE G’S, GENTS, & LADIES. I COVERED THE STREETS, THE CLUB, THE CAR, AND THE HIP HOP HEADS WITH 19 TRACKS. EVERYONE ALWAYS SAYS IM TOO VERSATILE FOR MY OWN GOOD AND I NEED TO PICK A LANE..BUT LIKE DRAKE SAID ” PICK A LANE, PICK A LANE, THATS ALL I EVER HEARD..BUT IM JUST TRYNA SWERVE, WITHOUT HITTIN THE CURB “. IM INTERESTED TO SEE WHAT EVERYONE’S FAVORITE SONG IS. IM GONNA MAKE THIS MIXTAPE STRETCH FOR ABOUT 6 TO 8 MONTHS. I GOT LOCAL TAPES IM DROPPING BUT NO MORE ORIGINAL MATERIAL UNTIL THE NEXT MIXTAPE. I’M EITHER GONNA TITLE IT GHETTO GOSPEL OR FLIGHT TO PROMISELAND. IM CURRENTLY 4 SONGS IN AND I SWEAR ITS THE BEST MATERIAL I HAVE EVER MADE!!! THE FIRST IMPRESSION IS A COLLECTION OF MATERIAL ENHANCED. AT LEAST 14 OF THE 19 SONGS WERE WRITTEN IN 2008.. STILL HOT TO ME THOUGH. HOPE YALL ENJOY IT. EMBRACE IT. GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY. ALL DAT GOOD STUFF. I AM THE BEST IN DADE WITH OR WITHOUT A NOMINATION FOR THIS AWARDS. SO WHOEVER WINS BEST LYRICIST, ENJOY IT UNTIL NEXT YEAR. YOU WON BECAUSE MY MIXTAPE DROPPED TOO LATE IN THE YEAR. ( DAMN IM ARROGANT AND I DONT GIVE A FUCK LOL ) I AM THE BEST IN DADE BECAUSE I CAN OUTSPIT EVERYBODY AND THEN TURN AROUND AND MAKE GOOD MUSIC..NO MATTER THE STYLE OF SONG. AINT NOBODY IN DADE EVER MADE A SUPERMAN OR A FLY SHIT AND TURN AROUND AND MAKE A IMMA, THEN TURN AROUND AND MAKE A BABY COME BACK. THIS IS WHAT MAKES ME SPECIAL.

Yesterday I had the photo shoot for my mixtape The First Impression (releasing 10/10) artwork as well as promo material. Incase you’ve been livin under a rock down in Miami @DreFilms is the man. He’s doing everybody’s videos and he also does photography. Got some real good shots cant wait to show yall how we put the good ideas together. Its dope.
Yes yes yes we are 20 days away from The First Impression!!! Had a talk with my manager last night about whats next and what we got in store to help the mixtape grow weekly. Got alotta videos to shoot, and a whole lotta grindin to do but that’s fine by me cuz ya shine is only as good as ya grind. I have been sacrificing a great deal, almost everything to get this mixtape complete and make sure the moves for it are gonna be made in a timely manner. I dont think people realize how much money and how much of a headache this shit actually is. The politics..the budgets..the trial and error.. specially when you independent. So do me a favor and download it, like it, and tell a friend to tell a friend about it ok? lol. I been droppin freestyles as promised and will continue to do so until 10/10. Tomorrow is the photo shoot with @DreFilms for the official artwork. There is work to be Done and im workin. Here’s all the freestyles ive dropped so far and todays freestyle as well incase you missed it on twitter,facebook,and myspace that day …
Its now 30 days until The First Impression drops!! I’m a lil bit in between excited and ready to get it over with honestly. Only because it has alot of music i wrote back in 2007 on it… and I feel like my entire kraft has elevated times 10 since i wrote some of these records. My whole style has pretty much changed. Either way in the next 30 days I’m gonna post freestyles until the mixtape drops. Old & New so you can see the difference a few yrs has made. Hopefully next month everyone download’s the mixtape and gives it a honest unbiased listen. We shall see!!!
P.S – There is gonna be new artwork for it and I’m trying to squeeze one more song on here and take one off. Hopefully I can make that happen.
