sorry fans!!

well it sucks to say this. i will not be performing in nyc on may 20th. personal issues with my mother has come up and i need to be by her side. hopefully this will not discredit me as an artist. i was really looking forward to rocking the stage but family first. also thank u to those that tried to help my cause but reality is alot of people are leery of giving money to me cuz of hating ass people spreading untruths about me and what i am trying to do. which just means i am doing the right thing and making things better not only for me but for my community. giving opportunities and most of all strength to my brothers to achieve anything.. dont worry it will happen and i am so stubborn that i will keep fighting for it. u can still cop my album on itunes and googleplay. i will be coming soon to a city near u for performances and the cd will be in hastings soon (again). so go get it. again thank u for supporting my crazy butt!!! love u guys and pray please for my mom. i love you ma!!!

first review!!!

THIS IS TONY JOHNSON'S REVIEW OF MY ALBUM... THANX TO HIM FOR A GOOD AND FAIR REVIEW AND HERE IS WHAT HE HAD TO SAY. review on "Trials Through Smoke and Mirrors". 1) All About My Bread f/ McClain, Money Tx and King- Sound like a combination of that Houston (Z-Ro, Big Mo, Screwed up Click) and Miami (Rick Ross, DJ Khalid) Sound. A possible hit. Nice cut. 2) Diabalque- Santana sample. Should attract Latino audiences but nothing major captivating to my ears both musically and lyrically. 3) Life Goes On- I think this is the best song on the project. Lyrically strong, great testimonial song and musically it's true Hip-Hop. Definitely a hit to my ears. 4) Nightmares- Lyrically sound with an Old school beat. a dark song that may have to grow on some people because of the deep lyrical content but after listening to it a few times over..I'm feeling it! 5) Freestyle Radio f/ Lil Jerry and Mr. Buk'em'Down- Dance floor material for the hoodies and hoodrats. I can hear this song being played at Tatums. Nice cut. 6) Say It To Her- The hook sound like an Aaron Neville sample. I like the hook and melody but lyrically its kinda dull and uninteresting but overall its an okay song. 7) The Glamorous Life- Old School Groove. Lyrically and musically is definitely a "Feel Good" vibe. This could also be a hit because it has a crossover apparel. Nice cut. Shine Like Dis (Wired up!) f/ Cezo, Lil Jerry and Cali L- Another Tatum's joint. This song is the best dance track on the project. Definitely feeling this cut. If I had to rate your project on a 5 star system 5 (Excellent) 4 (Good) 3 (Average) 2 (Poor) 1 (Awful) I would give "Trials Through Smoke and Mirrors" 3 1/2 stars Although your project is indeed a nice quality and professional sounding project with some good to decent material but honestly it's nothing that I haven't already heard before from other artists. You do have a unique rap flow and once again you have some very nice songs. Much better than most of these local cats in Amarillo. You really surprised me on the cool. I thought it was going to be a trashy project so I give you kudos for doing your homework in the studio making a good quality project that sounds professional and not cheesy. My advice is don't get caught up doing what other artists in the rap game is doing. We have too many rap artists sounding like what's already out there and they get swept under the rug or they don't last long in the game. Personally I think your flow and music style will attract different ethnics of people mainly Latino's. That maybe something you may consider because I honestly believe the Latino's will love "Trials Through Smoke and Mirrors" if you market to them which will boost your sales tremendously but that's just my assessment. THANX AGAIN TONY!!! CHECK OUT TONY'S REVIEWS ON BLACKAMARILLO.COM
