First, I just want to thank every person who has enjoyed my music. I know I've been in and out over the years, and it's been a while since I released anything. I was always writing, I never quit...even though it looked like it. I think what really happened is my life got better. The past time I used as therapy has served its purpose (to get me through some hard times and deal with the past).
Now I'm happily married and have a pretty great career as an animator. I don't have as much time as I used to, nor the need to write songs for therapy anymore. That is why I'm saying bye for now. Until, god forbid, something happens in my life where I need to pick this music back up again. I hope my music continues to inspire and motivate. Everyone deserves a good life, some just have to work harder than others. Thanks again everyone. Peace.
The last couple years have been pretty insane to say the least. In a good way, unlike the last 10 years before. I feel like everything bad that happened lead me to this point in my life and I can truly see now that everything does happen for a reason. My career in the video game industry has taken off and I'm currently set to marry the love of my life summer of next year, living in the quiet suburbs with great neighbors. I worked tirelessly with no end in sight to get from the bottom up to the beginning of greatness.
To my fans, if I have any left...I am sorry for my long absence. I have been writing songs since I "left" but nothing that really materialized into a full song. I just needed to take some time for myself and start enjoying life while it was going well for once. Hiphop has been a medium for me to vent, it helped me find myself as a person and keep me strong through extremely difficult times. After everything started going well I think I lost sight of what this music really means to me. And therefore lost my motivation to write.
I've been teetering on the edge of whether or not I should walk away for good, or stay for good. And I feel like I still have a lot to share, and a lot of inspiration to give from my story and reflections on those stories. Needless to say, I'm here to stay for good. No album promises this time, just pure poetry mixed over beats for everyone's enjoyment/inspiration.
Thank you for your support. I hope I can make it up to you. :)
Thanks guys. Decietful Conscience and 10th November both make second appearances on the best tracks ever...again!!!
To my fans. I am extremely sorry for my absence, I do have a busy life outside of ng and sometimes it's nice to take a break. But this is what I love to do, I love inspiring people. Stay tuned for more tracks. I love you guys!
I know I've been promising music and I know at least some people are hungry for it. And I also know I get bit in the ass every time I say I'm going to release something.
The truth is, life is too short....
And I don't think I have the time to keep up with newgrounds anymore...
Not saying good bye, but I'm just going to step back and get some more tracks going. Come back with a bang in the future. As of right now, for once I feel like everything is going just right and I want to enjoy it while it lasts.
So I'm off to enjoy this short life. I hope some people do the same too. :)
P.S. one more track coming before this break. Keep a lookout for it, it's coming soon!
P.S.P.S. Nvm, I'm done trying to tell the future.
Not one...but two new songs NEXT Sunday. Another Burly & Dex Banger, and also a solo track from me that will indeed surprise many. Don't know if it'll be in a good or bad way yet lol. We'll see, kinda nervous about, but I know how well they smell fear so I'm just gonna let the music do the talking.
I have a very full life as it is, so please be patient with me. The music will always come, it just takes time. 2009 has definitely been one hell of a breakout year for me & Dex's style's both. It aint over yet!
*Edited to next sunday, I think I'd have to rush it to get them done, so it'd be better next Sunday. :)
1. Black Magic (Swollen Members)
2. Below the Heavens (Blu & Exile)
3. So Far/So True EP (Inverse)
4. Will Rap for Food (CunninLynguists)
5. Strange Journey (CunninLynguists)
6. S.o.n.o.g.r.a.m. (One Be Lo)
7. The Weatherman LP (Evidence)
8. The Rising Tied (Fort Minor)
9. Cheerful Robots (The Crest)
10. Celestial Clockwork (Illogic)
Damn this is a hard list to make. Will have to make a different kind of list for later. Hopefully it gives some insight into how I've developed my own sound. Lots of people think it came out of no-where because they are used to hearing absolute garbage when it comes to hiphop.
This is something I've been thinking about doing for quite some time now. I originally going to release an album in 2007 but realized I just wasn't ready in terms of skill or frame of mind.
It wasn't until I released Winter of the Heart some weeks back that I even thought of the idea of releasing an album again. The feedback I got was well above my expectations. When you work on something so much it's hard to know how people are going to react in the end. It was definitely an eye opener for me. It made me really look back on how far I've come...4 years ago I would have never thought I'd be able to produce work like this, it's pretty crazy.
So with that being said. Winter of the Heart is officially the first recorded song on my debut album coming in 2010! The album will most likely be a free drop, so spread that sh*t like wild fire!
Thanks to everyone that has supported Dex & myself through the years and to those that continue to support the efforts. We both have busy lives, without your support we would have stopped a long time ago.
Cunninlynguists performing all of their A Piece of Strange album live with Club Dub, and all of the QN5 rappers this Friday in NYC.
I've never gotten to see Cunninlynguists live...they saved my life, they were my entry into underground hiphop, it's really a once in a lifetime event (especially since it's never going to be duplicated ever again!).
I don't care about autographs or anything, all I want to do is shake Decon and Kno's hand and thank them for what they've done. Hope I don't get choked up! Lol.
I'll let you know all know how it goes!
Peace (and see you there hopefully)
Burly & Dex new song, check it out: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen /258980
Was supposed to release a long time ago, glad we decided to get it out. Enjoy. :)
Wow, I got to work and couldn't believe what I saw. Can't thank you guys enough for the support! That shit is amazing right there.
EDIT* It's kind of hard to see with the compression of the screenshot, but pretty much all mine and Dex's songs are rocking the top spots. You guys fucking rock!
