I know I came completely out of no where so I want to shed some light on my situation as a writer.
For those wondering, the mixtape that I made was thematic. It's based on me leaving home to attend medical school in a different country, and whether or not I was ever going to be able to write music again. It holds substantial meaning in my life, and it blows my mind when I think about how much time has passed since I released "Until Next Time," and "The Maze." I'm not sure why, but "Fragile" was removed off of YouTube.
Anyway, I'd be happy to post the full tape if I get a solid following for it. It's complete and ready to be heard.
School went great for my first term, and when I came home for the summer I decided to see if I still had any writing talent. I was worried that by leaving music behind for my true career I would lose the ability that I worked so hard to attain. I actually expressed this doubt in Until Next Time when I said things like:
It's like I'm going to battle,
Don't know if I'll be the same when I'm home as an adult,
Yeah I'm ready, but don't want you left alone in the shadows,
My thoughts will be like a poem in shackles
I wonder if we'll be the way we were when I get back
Turn up and get wacked, burn up a ten sack
If you really listen closely, Until Next Time is not actually about a girl at all (as I'm sure most of you assumed :P ). That's all I'm going to say about that, as I'd rather you figure it out for yourself. This goes for all of my music.
So I'm posting today because when I finally did make it home after my first term, I wanted to see if I "still got it" and came up with an unfinished track that I've always wanted some feedback on. So here it is, enjoy:
