I'm dropping this today for FREE as an A-Side/B-Side single with The Prince Akeem Theory on the A-Side and my 6'7' Flow on the B-Side.
The Prince Akeem Theory is dedicated to the memory of my good friend from Tufts- Naeem Webster. He died in a terrible car crash on the way home, late, Thanksgiving Eve and his body was burned beyond recognition. Naeem was a great dude. He loved Hip-Hop. He wanted me to get him the Rick Ross Diamond Supply hat from Foot Soldiers. He was also a big Kanye fan. I wrote this song with him in mind and I think he'd appreciate it a great deal. So, the actual "Prince Akeem Theory" is something I came up with to describe my mission. I left a successful career in politics in Boston to be here living Hip-Hop. I literally had a moment (in NYC) where I felt like Prince Akeem throwing away his crown for love. I think following your dreams is more important than a pay check. But, my theory is that by chasing my dreams I will get what I ultimately really want.
The B-Side singe is my 6'7' Flow over the Bangladesh beat that Lil Wayne used for his single. I know a gang of rappers are on this beat already but none of them are me. I haven't heard anyone in Miami on it. And, I crushed it. I wanted to pair this single with the other to further illustrate that I'm an Indie rapper, not underground. My music is a little of both mainstream and underground. And, I plan to keep it that way.
I'm planning a big Hip-Hop show for April 3rd. I don't have many details yet but I can tell you that we're basically trying to throw a show with live acts in one room and Dubstep DJs in the other room. For me, this will be one of my last performances in Miami before I head to DC. I'm doing some time there in the late Spring networking and setting up shows. Then, this summer I'll be on a mini-tour. I have show invites in DC, NYC, Chicago, Boston and NJ for the Atlantic City Film Festival. I'm thinking about opening a Kickstarter account to raise money to fund the tour.
THANKS for all of your support. Check out the tunes and let me know!
