About the Author

My career has taken my name places I've yet to see, first the UK and that was crazy but a blessing. I'm a writer, I've interviewed people in that I could only have prayed to have met! I'm living my dream, fulfilling my ambitions, proving myself wrong daily about my fears or success! My uncle once told my "If it's your name you own it, but if it's borrowed it's a countdown until it's returned. So make your name sticks that doesn't mean team work is out it just means you put in just as much effort and be seen doing it" I owe thanks to so many, I've learned so much and more to come, I just want those who took a second look to know it was worth the lessons and TIME! ShadyvilleDjs official, Def Jam label added love Interscope, Epic is dope not bragging I just appreciate it all! Major thanks to The Hype Magazine!!!!!
