"Deeper Than Money"
If you haven't heard by now my next project is going to be entitled, Deeper Than Money. Things are much more different now. This is my third solo project if you count So Much To Live Up To, I have grown so much over the time in between each project and life has taken its own turn as well. This will be the first project I'm doing since having a daughter, also I'm engaged now to my beautiful fiancé, life is so much different. During More For Me Less For You, I was a college student with a dream trying to get through school and make time for my passion. Musically I have definitely grown you will for sure hear the difference in the music, from beat selection to wordplay and subject matter. But this post isn't to talk about the improvement or the content of the new project. This post was meant explain the meaning behind the title. Deeper Than Money, which was inspired by Logic's song with the exact same title. In the song he asks "what really makes you happy?" This struck a chord with me, made me think what makes me happy? because like I stated things have changed in my life I went from being a normal young adult to a parent with bills and responsibilities. The title is actually meant be stand for where I'm at in life. Yes, I want to be paid for my talents and live out my dream, who doesn't? But its deeper than that, I am now a father, and as father I have to set an example for my child. I want my daughter to know that life will throw you obstacles and times will get hard, but no matter what you do never give up on your dreams and aspirations (what makes you happy). There will be times that you may want to quit or it may seem like the best thing to do at the time, but there is always sun after the storm. If you don't attempt to make yourself happy who will? As for the cover, the dollar bill reads "Root Of All Evil". I interpret that as if you do something just for money it's not pure, it's not done with positive vibes or good intentions. Money can't be the root of your happiness. Even the bible has a verse for that, "For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows" (Timothy 6:10). So I picked that cover because I thought it really reinforces what the title means to me.
