What an incredible year. We got our first gold plaque, dropped two EP’s and ran a 32 city tour. I wish I could meet every person who’s streamed a song, bought a piece of Merch, came to a show or introduced new people to the music and personally say “Thank You!” Loaded with gratitude right now. Thank you Lord!

Couldn’t believe the txt I got today about Ron (@djefechto) passing away. I feel weighed down with grief and sadness. Been texting all day w friends remembering him. Ron has a tattoo on his arm that I always loved. It was a gun that said “kindness” on it. Kill em with kindness. I don’t think I ever heard an unkind word come out of his mouth. He was truly a gentle, kind and generous soul. He was always a delight to have on tour. He always took incredible pictures bc he was so observant. He made such good food because he liked to serve others. He also had a crazy jump shot on the low. Every time we played he almost never missed. I’m so saddened by the reality of death. As inevitable as it is, it never stops hurting. If this life was the only one I had to look forward to, I don’t know if I could go on most days. Thank God this isn’t it for us. I’ll see you soon, Ron. Love you brother 💚
I think ppl forget about all the layers involved in doing music at a high level. For those that actually care about the details, the craft & are thoughtful about the experience they’re giving their fans - here’s a list of a few thing. From brand building, to building a team (management and creative trust), writing, recording, recording engineers, producers, mixing and mastering engineers, album art (design and art directors), packaging, music videos (directors, writers, DPs, editors), stylists, tour art, musicians (band), set design, live videos for the show, set order and transitions (music directing), and live performance. That’s just some of the creative rolls, not even mentioning the administrative rolls. Depending on where an artists is on their journey, they may have to wear ALL of these hats until until they find the right people to step in. I’m grateful for everybody who’s helped bring all these crazy ideas to life. Now that the better late than never tour is over I’m glad to be home, but I’m also proud that we all put on such a dope show and created some amazing experiences and memories. I can’t thank you guys enough for buying your tickets and showing up every night. Every time you buy a ticket you say “keep creating, I support you.” That means the world to me. I have so many amazing supporters. It’s crazy year after year seeing some of the same faces show up - I remember them from shows past or they bring gifts I never forget - it feels like a family reunion. Until next time _ 📽: @harrisonmaxwell

Whenever u meet nba players remember to do these three things. 1. Stand on something to make yourself taller. 2. Ask them what it’s like [email protected] w Lebron James, they love that. 3. Immediately ask for investment capital and or box seats. Works every time. MEMPHIS TONIGHT! NASHVILLE TOMORROW. _ 📷: @mikefolabi @ Minglewood Hall
