Before the start of my freshman year in high school a college guidance counselor asked us to list 3 things we wanted to be when we graduated. I can't remember the other two now, but the first was to become a rapper named "Lotion". I would've never imagined in a million years that I would ever get a chance to grace the stage with my favorite rappers that I grew up listening to. Now, I seriously regret doubting myself for so long, and not listening to the people who told me to go harder. But through trial and error, I had to remain behind the scenes to learn engineering, production, style, performance, and the other ins and outs of the music industry. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been prepared for the stage I currently find myself in. I've been preparing for over a decade. The scary part is.....I'm just getting started.
