About this project

My New Album SUPREMACY

My Mom

In 2010, my mom was diagnosed with kidney failure. My mom's life has changed quite a bit since then. From January to June 2012, I took a break from touring to look after her and be her support. During that time,  I read a lot of scripture, devotionals and prayed. While looking after my mom, God laid SUPREMACY on my heart. After watching my mom on a daily basis and witnessing first hand the struggles of dealing with a disease, it made me realize that we can never truly be free until we take all of our struggles, short comings, failures and frustrations and give them to God and let Him reign supreme over our lives. I wrote over 30 SONGS during that period of time. Now, I want to take these songs, record them, and share them with you! In order to do that however, I need your help.

Costs of Making SUPREMACY

There are A LOT of costs that go into making an album. First, I have to pay every producer that I buy my beats (instrumentals) from. On average, it will cost me $50 per beat (about $800 total). Next, is recording the album and laying down vocals! This will be the first time that I record at the famous Jupiter Studios in St. Louis, MO. Many artists have recorded at Jupiter Studios like Nelly, The St. Lunatics, Chingy, and Story of the year. It cost $450 for 10 hours of studio time. It will take me about 20 hours total ($900). I will also need to compensate the rappers and singers that will feature on my album ($400 total). Once my songs have been recorded, it will cost $25 per song to have them mastered (which will come out to about $400). It will cost $200 for the photography and $250 for someone to design the artwork. Lastly, it will cost $800 to order 1,000 copies of the finished product. This comes out to $3,750 but I'm asking for $3,500.

In Conclusion

You know the back story and costs behind Supremacy, now I'm asking you for your help. Any donation will be appreciated and you will be rewarded (who wants to see me with blonde hair???) for your donation! It's a lot of support to raise, but I know that we can make it! Thank you for your continued support. Now, lets make SUPREMACY happen!

    I will play a show in your city, limited to the continental US, by the end of the year. No matter what. If I have to play in your house, I will... but I will definitely come play for you. And if I can't find a venue and do end up in your house, expect to be hosting the party of the year. Just saying.
