Back for the first time…ok, ok, it’s really the second time, but ever since Luda dropped his second album (his first was the independent and rare “Incognegro”, for those that aren’t quite in-the-know on that one), I’ve wanted to use that phrase. So as I return to conclude my chapter in this series, I have to tell you…my grind is what has actually been keeping me from getting this article done. Heat can tell you, you were all supposed to see this a week ago, but thanks to a Gmail conspiracy that I’m sure the ancient Templars planned centuries ago, I lost the article in my drafts. Not to mention, I’ve been busy all week with the recent release of my new mixtape, The Practice. So now…the conclusion of none other than…my grind…not literally though…I’m going to be here for a while…
Now as an artist releasing a new project, we all know the possibility of everything going…well…wrong. It’s happened and we’ve seen it…Lil Wayne releasing his Rebirth album early through Amazon (who would spend money on that album, I have no idea, but…whatever)…Wale being undershipped by Interscope…you know how it goes. Luckily, things weren’t too bad in my case…minus a small change on the front cover and placing the bulk of online distribution upon myself since me and my PR decided to part ways in business. (more…)
Every month, I’m going to reach out to an artist to chronicle their music hustle and grind. For the January highlight, I reached out to Lyriciss. To be so young, the lil homie has been through a lot and recently moved out the DMV. So without further ado, here is Lyriciss letting you know about his musical grind.
