"…oh gee..lol I kinda dunno what to say. I’m a huge fan of your music and you over all. Your music is very relatable and I just wanna thank ya for making the music you make. Please don’t let any one phase you because you are so unique.
But I’ve come here with a few question. Don’t get me wrong…
Loving the wind
Does not mean I love the ocean less.
Each evokes a different part of me
And brings me different lessons,
And my love for them would not diminish
If I also loved the fertile forest.

What is your advice to a young writer and aspiring rapper who isn't very confident or pleased with their voice?
Just keep working at it. The main cause of voice issues is confidence. Which comes with practice. I still have voice issues. But once you get comfortable, if you have the words and the message you can do big things. Also dont be afraid to show true emotion when you are rhyming. Like not just getting louder when something is emotional but actually express that emotion. Let yourself become vaulnerable. As artists we owe the audience that vulnerablity.
We often use assumptions to better relate/dicconect ourseleves with a group. We often make these assumptions based off isolated experiances with someone and the characteristics that person displays during the isolated events.
For example a general assumption often seen in Western culture are “gender specific acts”. Men are to be without weakness, cannot show saddness or many emotions, cannot wear or dress in what is deemed as “feminine clothes”, and so much more. While not everyone believes that they think this way I’m here to tell you that you do, myself included.
Am I saying assumption are evil. Maybe not, but there does lie a darker power in these assumption.
Assumptions allow us as human beings to avoide discovery. We chose to bring the conclusion to ourself instead of finding out.
So why say this…
Well I encourage you to ask question, dont assume, asuure. Reach out to people through inquiry, that is my challange for you today
Tragedy in Russia: Hundreds have been reported injured after a meteorite exploded midair near the city of Chelyabinsk in Russia’s Ural Mountains Friday. Said Nadezhda Golovko, deputy head of Chelyabinsk Secondary School No. 130:
When I saw some white narrow cloud moving outside the window I ran up to it and saw a huge blinding flash. It was like the way I would imagine a nuclear bomb. At first, there was no sound at all as if I suddenly went deaf
Russian authorities have rushed to the scene in mass, assessing damage and making sure there’s no increase in radiation levels as a result of the impact.

-Welcome to the Galaxy Parade on Stars-

So I’d like to officially welcome those who are reading this. This is Book1 Chp1. The name is pretty much some super artsy way of saying the beginning of a journey I hope will never end. The melodies you are hearing were crafted by Cornelius Chandler a musical genius. I hope to keep posting frequently, giving you a bridge into my mind. I hope as you read and watch and learn the things that go on through my head my music will seem more…real to you. This and everything I do is apart of The Galaxy Parade on Stars, the new dgaf movement. Come along.
It’s weird how when I ask people for advice or feedback how quickly they become professionals at what I am asking. No matter what the topic they put on this act as if they had gone to like Oxvardstonbridge to study that topic. That’s what I fucking love about people. We always feel entitled to take on that role even if we are not qualified… That was kind of dumb… but whatever.
