FATHER IN HEAVEN - The Confession (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)
Intro track to the 7 Deadly Sins LP
New Stretch Goal with 4 Dayz to go! (45K)
1 comment Liked 4 likes Once again a BIG thank you to everyone that has backed this project. With 4 days to go we are well over our initial goal of 30K. We are expecting a high number of fans, friends and family that have not backed to help us finish strong. With that said, we would like to introduce a STRETCH GOAL, if we reach 45K, yes 45K!! we will have the proper funds to produce a MUSIC VIDEO for EVERY SONG on the album. The music video visuals will enhance the album and bring to life the superb lyricism and storytelling and truly expand the reach. Is this really possible in just 4 short days? We believe so, but only with your help. So we ask you to continue spreading the word via social media and with your day to day interaction with friends.
P.S As promised we will be releasing the first music video "Father in Heaven" (Track 1) shortly, of course backers will get to see it first.

The Project | 7 Deadly Sins LP
7 DEADLY SINS is a conceptual album based on my life experiences, triumphs, defeats, deceits and the overall journey. The first song called, “Father In Heaven” takes you into my inner most thoughts as I speak to God about the highs and lows of my life and career. If you watched the KickStarter video above then you saw a short clip from the video. Following my confession, I take you on a story telling journey through the 7 Deadly Sins (7DS) Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Greed, Pride, Sloth, Wrath, a song for each sin. Following this emotional hard hitting ride I end the album on a more uplifting and optimistic note with a track titled "Nothing Left to Lose," the first single off the album.
"Nothing Left to Lose" (the first single off the record) is a song that embodies the concept of hitting rock bottom and giving it your all when you have nothing left to lose. A feeling that we can all relate to, and a true reflection of where I am right now.
After tons of research and attempts to find an awesome artistic cover. A friend of ours, Ali Moradi, connected us with Joby Cummings, an amazing US tattoo artist turned graphic designer. His clever 7sins design, caught our eye. Can you spot the 7 sins??
The collectors edition booklet will feature lyrics written by R-Mean and artwork by contemporary artist Van Saro. Check out the samples by Van Saro bellow. This will be a booklet to treasure!
Because its public and trustworthy.
Where will your pledges/gifts go and how will we spend the money?
In a nutshell, once this campaign ends, we will immediately begin the final stages of mixing and mastering the album. Then the MANUFACTURING of the CD's and the PRODUCTION of the merchandise will begin. Followed by SHIPPING your reward. The left over funds will be used for promotion and marketing to make sure we reach as many people possible.
1. MIXING AND MASTERING THE ALBUM.
To compete with major releases the sound QUALITY of the music needs to be topnotch. We have already contacted Grammy award winning engineer Segal, who is known for his work on the Slim Shady LP, The Marshall Mathers LP, Chronic 2001, Stankonia, and many more. What a list huh? If you watched the video then you saw us in the studio working.
GOAL: Every song is properly mixed and has a state of the art quality
2. MUSIC VIDEOS
To truly bring the album to life, we want to produce a music video for every song on the album. We have 2 completed and many more to go. Because 7DS is a conceptual album with many story driven elements we have some amazing ideas for videos. But videos are super expensive to produce, this is why we need your help.
In the past we managed to make some amazing videos with our own funding. I am very lucky that my manager Alex Kodo happens to be one of the most talented music video directors. On a limited budget we were able to create amazing music videos. Imagine what we can accomplish with bigger budgets. Explore the videos below and see for yourself.
GOAL: A music video for every song on the album.
3. MARKETING+PROMOTION (Spreading the word)
For this album to reach its full potential we need all the benefits that come with a major record label… The right amount of promotion, PR, publicist, events, online marketing, social media marketing, radio promotion, video promotion, advertising, radio touring, college touring, national touring,and the list goes on. And of course distribution, a major part of how music reaches the masses.
Because you want to hear my music. You want to hear the real shit I spit. You are sick of that mickey mouse shit you hear everyday.
We have asked some amazing artists to work with us in creating an ART and LYRIC BOOK that brings the music to life, along with our series of music videos.
I have created custom rewards for all my fans and supporters. From pre-ordering the actual album to all kinds of exclusive merchandise we have designed specifically for the 7DS campaign, which include show tickets, official t-shirts, and hoodies. Better yet, make your experience even more personal by skyping with me, partying with me, having one of my DJ's spin at your private event, and much much more. LOOK TO YOUR RIGHT AND EXPLORE ALL YOUR OPTIONS!
Thank you for your time, love and support. I can not wait to share this project with you. A salute from the bottom of my heart.
