S/o to 98.7 the beat in Charleston West Virgina.. #Multifest 2k12
Fans and friends,
I have a major announcement to make: I AM A FREE AGENT. I am no longer signed to any label. My long-time manager and mentor, Chaz Williams, and I have also decided to end our professional relationship. Anyone who has followed my career thus far knows how hard of a decision this was for me. My name has been synonymous with Chaz and Blackhand since the beginning. Therefore, I wanted to take the time to explain.
To be clear, there is no beef between Chaz and myself. We are family, and will always be family. It was a mutual decision to go our separate ways. We’ve both been busy with our own projects, and this was just a natural progression. I’m going in a new direction creatively, and needed to start fresh in order to make that transition. Chaz has been supportive of my growth. It’s all about the present (which I will explain briefly.)
Over the last year, I’ve added several talented people to my creative team. Together, we are preparing to release an EP called The Rule, which is a prelude to my debut album. Everything from the music production, videos, photography, mixing and mastering were done in-house. The Rule is different – it looks and sounds like nothing I’ve done before, and I’m really excited for its release in July.
As to whether or not I stay independent long-term, I’m undecided. Right now, I love it. There are no middlemen between me and my fans. I have all the tools I need to release music and connect with those who appreciate it. Stay tuned…
