E·lix·ir - A magical or medicinal potion.  

əˈliksər/  

a preparation that was supposedly able to change metals into gold, sought by alchemists.  

a preparation supposedly able to prolong life indefinitely.  

The Elixir has been in development since last summer, the project has gone through several stages and now I’m about 60% finished with the project. It’s a Hip-Hop/Rap mixtape with Neo-soul, Jazz/experimental trap influence. If you watched the interview video you will find that the Elixir is a magical potion that is used for healing. Music is the highest form of expression and can be used as a healing modality. Music is a gateway, a direct access to the soul. I started rap as a freshman at Knox College on the 2nd floor dorms of Seymour Hall. At first its was all gimmick rap; me and a few others were simply taking turns goofing around on the mic during winter break. At the time I was playing basketball so I couldn’t really take rapping seriously nor was I interested. It wasn’t until Spring term my sophomore year I began to become more deliberate about my approach to rap. I spent most of that term taking art classes and studying the poetics of Hip-Hop. I decided to focus my attention towards rap after an unsuccessful basketball season. 

The next year my junior year I decided to focus heavily on school and making music/art. I was fortunate enough to link up with another fellow Knox graduate named Griffin Belzer who turned out to be a brilliant producer. But it’s more than just rap; I feel like as a rapper and visual artists we have a responsibility to bring ideas/issues to light that speak to our respective audiences. Funding from for this project will go towards finishing the recording process of the tape and part of the backing would go towards shooting more entertaining videos with deeper story-lines. 

I know I can take my talents and use them to create a better place, a better time, and a better future. Please make a contribution and help make The Elixir. 

 Thank You,

Risks and challenges

The only thing that could hold me back from finishing the project is lack of funding or if my computer breaks but even then it's backed up in my emails, actually everything is pretty much backed up on the cloud so there are no real risks here.
