Preperation for success

My Father the Legendary Jazz Tenor Saxophone player Vince Wallace told me " You must practice at least 20 minutes a day in order to master your craft" , "even if you feel sick, or your not in the mood." This is how the real legends get down and Ive always taken this to heart. I also remember the lessons from DJ Rakus during the FSC practice sessions and how he heard about James Brown making his band members pay when they played off beat or out of key. So when we trained on our lyrics we took on the aesthetic of real musicians as emcees. I believe the true key to success is knowing your music, having it engrained in your soul so when your performing you are creating an actual experience. Big up to all the true artist who have mastered their craft as an example of excellence for the world. Nac One
