It's Finally Here... 305s & Heartbreak x Celebrate Lyfe
So I released a song from the 305s & Heartbreak mixtape along with the artwork which I am in love with and Overall it went well. I had the internet going nuts! (Shout to my big bro paul wall for that one lol) The song I leaked is titled "Celebrate Lyfe" which originally was and still is for the album "In Love With My Future" which I have to say is coming together nicely! LowKey along with chip William's (MBW) are the only two producers on the album so far and it looks like LowKey's going to end up doing the majority of the project... So back to 305s... The mixtape is phenomenal! 12 solid tracks of what I consider my heartbreaks. I did this project understanding that a lot of hip-hopers didn't take to the 808s album to well for various reasons... Some thought kanye didn't perform well as a singer, some thought it was too soft. Whatever the reason may be I thought it was a bold step for Ye to even attempt such an out of the box sound as a hip-hop artist. I also thought it was a giant step for hip-hop period. So I too took a bold step and did my best to recreate those records and in my own way. I said "fcuk it let me try." Let me flip an album that many criticized and see if I could get them to like what I did... SUCCESS! Some who shall remain nameless thought I was buggin out for wanting to redo such an album... Guess what tho, the fans think differently! We did something good for the city of miami, for the state of Florida, for the kids who want to rap about subject matter not involving selling dope, or murdering someone (we don't believe you) but otherwise wouldn't in fear of backlash from their peers! I did this for many reasons, hope one of those reasons makes an impact on someones life... Real Words!
The mixing and guitars sound incredible and for this reason Chip/Miami Beat Wave we will forever do business as long as we're growing in the same direction. To LowKey you completely outdid yourself with "Celebrate Lyfe", and "The Exit: My future" track... I don't think you realize how dope you are dude. To Jahrue for the incredible artwork and the faith you have in my music, I greatly appreciate you and all you've done for me brotha! To the Queen B Summer JAE, I love you and what you've become as an artist... Thanks for being apart of this project, your voice is angelic! again to Miami Beat Wave for your contribution on the production side, yall boys went in! To Shifta, thank you for coming thru @ the last minute and taking the song to another level! My brotha Ishan for pushing me to make this happen and being apart of the idea process! and last but not least to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ without you there are NO mixtapes, NO albums, NO me! 305's & Heartbreak 8/13/09. Gone!
