I Am Top Shelf

this is what I'm up to. and a few things i find cool.

This is probably one of my favorite tracks right now. Almost forgot about this beat but Gums. painted the picture so clear I see the visuals playing out in my head. 

Here is my latest project that I have released with my good friend Dr. Byron Young. We have had many conversations as to how we can help the community and this is our way of giving back. Pure Magic is a hip hop relaxation compilation of instrumentals intended to promote the practice of mindful meditation. We wanted to share this with everyone because as most of us do, we spend our days working and stressing and not taking care of the most important muscle in our bodies, our minds. With this album, we intended for it to be roughly 30 minutes for you as the listener to take the time to relieve yourself of stress and anxiety.

The album is available for free through cdbaby, spotify, and the soundcloud link above. If you would like to support and purchase the project it is also on iTunes, Amazon and cdbaby.

Thanks for taking the time to listen to the project.

One of my favorite songs ever

This made my week. The video is epic.

Last year I recorded a conversation that I had with my brother/friend James Woods. This was right after we came back from New Orleans. The place where we, along with other friends, met in college and grew with each other. After we listened back we had over 30 minutes of material and couldn’t figure out what to do with it. But I still felt what he was saying needed to be heard. Here is part of it. None of this has been mixed or anything. This is what it is in the rawest form. I may eventually release the rest of them. Some of the most honest conversation we have ever had. Stay Top Shelf…

Check me out. Nervous as fuck in the Beats Not Streets Beat Battle. I had a good time. I entered with the Peta Tosh “Plane” beat. Plan on entering again and maybe giving a lil more of a show. It was my first time. 

You perfectly perfect for me what the fuck is this practice?

I swear I don’t listen to my own music but this song feels so right. Made the beat after meeting Pharrell and they were dead on capturing the feeling of the track. We didn’t even discuss it. Just provided the canvas and Cyph and Lu painted an amazing picture. Parallel feat. MaryGold “Good Morning”.
