When faced with adversity, our love, resilience, and sanity are tested to their limits. Distractions of life's obstacles can easily hold back even the most focused among us. Failure can deter even the most strong willed. Setbacks can force one to forfeit and forget why they even did it in the first place. Of course, different challenges have different solutions. But how does one weather a storm? How does one forgive? What inspires one to strive for greatness under all doubt and scrutiny? What is it that gives one the strength to rise and overcome?
I've taken massive L's before. But a year ago the world around me crumbled enough that I needed to reexamine my life. As I questioned whether music was still a priority, I began to realize that quitting on what I loved was the easy way out. The real challenge was for me to remain loyal to who I was, all that I loved, and what I believed in. Funny how contemplating leaving the game forever sparked what eventually would become this album.
This was created when I realized I had nothing else. This was my growth as a human being. This is my progression into the next chapter. This is the final product of me saying fuck all the bullshit. This is LOYALTY.
