“🎉🎉🎉🙏🏾🙏🏾What a year this has been for me so far!! From 2013 releasing song after song, visual after visual for 5 years straight all independent no distribution or label, every year was more discouraging then the last seeing other artists climb while happy for them I always wondered why not me? Am I good enough? I had certain friends and others saying your story telling rap won’t get you no where and I should switch it up if I wanna succeed but I didn’t listen I knew my ting was special I stuck to what I love and listened to the friends and fans who enjoyed what I did, I stuck to my guns and today I can announce I have signed a deal with @islandrecordsuk #islandlife🌴 Special thanks to those who pushed me to keep going and my little bros @joivan_wade @percelleascott who made it all happen. This is just the start people them tables have started to turn #ThankGod 🙏🏾”
