'Professional Hobbyist' is a ten track journey that examines a man who is a blue collar man by day and an emcee by night. The project highlights the struggles associated with vocation, educational goals, personal life and a time consuming hobby. I make it perfectly clear that I would rather make a living as an emcee as opposed to completing a Masters in Business Administration.
The album features production from This Is Tomorrow, Manu Beats, LX-Beats, Skipless, Muneshine and more. The Brainstormerscrewmate, DJ Grazzhoppa, adds scratch hooks on three of the ten tracks including the title track. The project also boasts a feature from long time collaborator Don Streat.
