For those that know, I’ve been messing around with the Bandlab app on my phone since October. Some out of boredom, some out of freedom.
My daughter is grown now and moved out at 18 (1.5 years ago). (BOREDOM) She has moved back home just this past month, so not so bored at all anymore 😂
I’ve also had a lot of time to reflect on what makes me, me. Not inclusive to the fact that living a single life has given me the opportunity to actually feel whole as a person. Recovering from domestic abuse is something not easily done. Even years later. I can say this is my recovery process. I’ve always written (secretively) since I was 13. The only person that knew about that was my daughter. It was something I did for fun, keep her smiling, laughing in a world that was full of chaos, anger and abuse. Once I was single, my daughter took that opportunity to push me to be more of myself, including this off beat, fast talking, Momma Rapper hidden identity self as well. Something often teased at or put down, was something my daughter admired and loved. (Freedom)
Over the past 5 months, it really has been something kind of like wow.
The transition is like wow too.
First YouTube video:
Now I have insecurities, which we all do. So the first video is like meh 😐 but the message, it means more.
U can see the nervousness in my face, and hear it in my voice.
But with encouragement from my daughter, I’ve been putting out song after song after song.
Now mind you 😁 these are recorded from my bathroom and from my broke ass metro phone.
Again people, I’m a mom, and who TF has 400 to 800 dollars to hit a studio. And let’s be honest, I’ve had no formal training, I do not read music, and barely know what people are even talking about when it comes to studio stuff. 😁
But I can put words together and I can say them pretty fast. 😁
And it’s getting better over time.
My most recent video :
I have some news on the new one tho 😂
It’s going to studio. I found a friend through a mutual friend that has a studio and is willing to work with me on the cost to record. Drastically too 😁
He knows I’m broke and trying to buy a house. Plus again, I don’t make any money at this, so to invest money in it, isn’t really conducive to my lifestyle ATM.
So after posting “Prodigy” I get this comment
Ha, the fact that he is my favorite artist of all time, y’all know that made my day.
He helped me get through life through his music 🙏 so for someone to make that comparison, which I know I am nothing like him, it still made my day.
I really hope you enjoy “Prodigy” which will be coming soon as soon as I find a ride to Sumter 😂😎😂 (can’t drive the scooter that far LMFAO)
