Even though it may seem like I’m creating at such a high level, there’s still so much more I need to learn. Since the very beginning I always just made it a habit to learn stuff that I was highly interested in. Remember back in 2005 when all my beats sounded like Dilla? And then I was on some street sh*t in 2009. Then I started experimenting and did some bass and 808 sh*t and pop leaning stuff. I’ve dipped my creativity in many ways at this point and I’m STILL experimenting. You’ll never ever catch me stuck doing one thing for 5 years. As musicians we evolve. We find new colors and textures and bounces and chords that excite our minds and hearts. Did Spielberg ever do the same exact move twice (sequels don’t count lol)? Did John Williams ever compose the same exact piece of music more than once? Did Pharrell just re do the SUPERTHUG beat over and over? The answer is no. The founder of EMPIRE DISTRIBUTION, Ghazi, came through to my PassTheAux producer event in San Francisco and dropped some serious gems - working with a manager.. how to find a manager.. do I need a manager?.. how can I get a lawyer to be willing to work with me?... Also, what can I do to take advantage of working with my peers + allowing yourself to grow as a person and as a musician to reach success.
