“Hey World! It’s a new day, keep your head up it will okay!” This hurting world needs to see there is hope in Christ. I know I need hope sometimes and it’s better to encourage yourself and help the people the around you instead of have a pity party, get depressed, and be of help to no one. This is for those who think there is no way out of bad situations. Always remember, it’s only temporary. Trouble doesn’t last always. Today is a new day! Yesterday is in the past. It’s time to shape a better tomorrow with good choices we make today. None of us are perfect, that’s why we gotta allow God to guide us. Whatever you’re dealing with, He can take care of it. Take it to Him in prayer and leave it there.
The opportunity came to visit my bro SaulPaul for a few gigs in Atlanta, GA. Afterwards, being the visionary he is and the work-a-holic I am, we decided it was time for another collaboration. We had done the single “Be Easy” from his debut album, ‘Remember The Name’ nearly a decade ago, and between that time and now, toured together thoughout the states as a duo and with the acoustic rap group Psalm Fresh. Now this time we wanted to make a video, with just us, chillaxin,’ with his acoustic guitar and my voice. The original video of “The BIBLE song (sing and rap)” had already gone viral, so it only made sense to do an acoustic version. It’s up on itunes right now and so far people are lovin’ this one too.
K Nikolas and I met over the internet through YouTube. We listened to each other’s music and knew we had to collab. So K Nik wrote the lyrics, produced the beat, and got his bro’s Jake and Tony on the guitars. I recorded my part and he mixed it all down. We then had “Last Known Address” (now on itunes) which one estatic viewer has called “an instant classic” – check the comments on YouTube ;D. Having a video was a part of the plan of course, so K Nik got his peeps in Fortuna, California together to shoot his scenes. Meanwhile, I got my peeps together to shoot my scenes in Austin, Texas. We sent video files back and forth as needed during the editing process and thus came the “LAST KNOWN ADDRESS official video.” We did a radio interview for the song on 95.5 FM in Eureka CA. I had to call in from Texas. All the host could think about when he heard Texas was cowboys and lassos, lol. With all we had to do to get this song and video done, promoting the video after all that fun called for more restless nights, but it’s reached nearly 30,000 people so far. I think it’s been a great effort on both parts keeping in mind we have not met in person yet.
