Hey Yogi Lovers! Thank you so much for taking the time to support this awesome project. More than just an album, "ONLY LOVE IS REAL" is a message that I believe will help to uplift our community. I decided to put $108 as the goal, even though its going to take much more than that, I wanted to remove all the pressure and stress, I feel like we all have enough of that in our life these days. Honestly, how ever much we raise is a blessing, and the money will go toward mixing, mastering and printing the album, marketing, promotion, videos, light show, producing new visuals and getting us on the road so we can come perform in a city or town near you. 

We've created a lot of great gifts to share with you as a thank you for contributing to the new album "ONLY LOVE IS REAL". We appreciate you helping to spread the word too, letting your friends and family know about this mission that we're on to help elevate hip hop and yoga culture.

 FRESH GANESH Print By MC YOGI

TEN THOUSAND BUDDHA Painting By Amanda Giacomini 

I went into the studio with producer Mike Green, (Paramore, Pierce The Veil) and recorded with some seriosly amazing guests like MATISYAHU, TREVOR HALL, & GOLDEN YOUTH to name a few. I poured so much love and energy into these songs and am so excited to share them with you.  

 Imagine hundreds of thousands of people chanting..."ONLY LOVE IS REAL" 

Extending my deep gratitude for your love and support, may you be Blessed by Ganesh, may your path be clear, and may you experience the peace, love and joy of yoga, here, there and everywhere. Peace & Namaste - MC YOGI 

Risks and challenges

We've been doing this independently for over five years now, mom and pop style. Support from our fans makes it possible for us to continue to create great music and art designed to uplift and inspire our community. I've written so many amazing new songs, and have so many awesome designs for stickers, posters, video games, comic books, movies and more. If people feel its important I trust that we'll receive the support we need to keep going. I believe deeply in what we're doing and based on the feedback from fans there's a lot of people out there who feel the same. The world needs more spiritually uplifting music, art and yoga! Thats the mission, that's why I'm here. So to answer kickstarter's question the only risk is the temptation to think everything is messed up, become lazy and give up. But thats when its time to hit the yoga mat, turn on some good music and start moving and breathing again. It always feels good to get back into the flow, and as we continue to grow and inspire each other on and off the mat, lets always be reminded, that as a global community striving toward kindness, we can absolutely make the world a better place! As the lyrics in the song "GIVE LOVE" go, "Always remember never forget what we give is what we get.....GIVE LOVE!" thanks for Being here, Peace & namaste - MC YOGI
