I wanted to create a rap album that felt like “Master of None.” “all i ever wanted was everything” is about struggling to identify what it really is that we want, both personally and professionally all while under the constant pressure of the world literally imploding upon itself. running from everything and not taking responsibility for one’s actions. but in the end facing up to what it is that you are. you can’t run from yourself.give me sun but also moonlight. it’s me trying to figure out identity, mental health, love, career, god, and family. series will release in four (4) albums over the next year. 

Season 1/Album 1.1: Escape from L.A. | L.A. is a city of over consumption, selfish culture, greed, and too many faceless individuals. But it’s also really beautiful and amazing and home to incredibly intelligent and wonderful people and diversity and unparelled history.  Even when you leave L.A. you never really leave L.A. You take everything with you, the goods + the bads, where ever you go. You can’t escape who you are. The album is about that.

The Diversity of Worlds

All this long human story, most passionate and tragic in the living, was but an unimportant, a seemingly barren and negligible effort, lasting only for a few moments in the life of the galaxy.
