To my beautiful, charming, charismatic backers:
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The campaign has ended, and we are funded.
We've managed to raise over 113K, which is 161% of the goal. I'm so happy, excited, thankful, and ready.
No matter where LD goes, just remember you guys started him. Am I a huge loser for using the third person? Perhaps. But I'm giddy right now - so back off. Let me do me.
I've been working on the album since the campaign started, and will continue to work until it's done. I know I estimated March as the release (and am still calling that my goal), but I will not put the album out until I think it's perfect. So I ask you guys for your patience, regardless of when it comes out. This is my first studio album, so it's harder for me to gauge the timeline of it all. I promise you will not be disappointed by the final product, so just trust that I'm doing everything I can to make it happen as soon as possible - without sacrificing quality.
As far as rewards go, you'll all be receiving surveys in the next week or so. In those surveys, I'll be getting all of the info I'll need from you to get you guys your stuff. That includes shirt sizes, phone numbers, Skype accounts, addresses, names (if you got it as a gift for someone else, etc.).
I'm gonna ask for your patience regarding rewards as well. As many of you have noticed, I'm gonna be Skyping until about 2017. I'm fine with it though, I can't wait to meet all of you. Virtually. I'm gonna put a plan in place to figure out how to execute Skype, because it's going to take a schedule, allotted time slots, etc. The other rewards have to be created as well (shirts printed, mixtapes signed...)
In summary, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to make my dreams come true. It's truly special, and I'll forever be indebted to you guys. Best fans/friends/family a dude could have.
Stay tuned/love you,
