Runs In The Family [Beat Tape]
Soooo I decided to drop a beat tape yesterday. This music is my way of saying Happy Birthday to my Dad Kwame Mugodo and celebrating the love we share for music. Freestyle to it. Dance to it. Do what you do. If it wasn’t for him, introducing this beautiful thing that I love to me at an early age, I really don’t know where I’d be. So thanks Pops. I owe you my life. Love you Baba! Runs In The Family [beat tape] available on

SECRET WEAPON VOL 1 & 2 11 YR ANNIVERSARY
These projects changed my life so I decided to release them both on all streaming services (with a few bonuses😉).
Most people didn’t even know I could rap or sing at the time; hence, the title Secret Weapon. I’m grateful for the crazy ass time I had while I was creating these albums (the memoir is in the making) and for all the artists, producers, engineers and studios who were a part of this era of my career 🙏🏾

The Janet Tape
Confession – I’ve always had a semi obsession with Janet Jackson. Since today is her birthday, I decided to drop a little tape (4 songs) that I produced from sample of her songs Living In A World, Come Back To Me, Together Again (Remix) and Warmth. It ended up being pretty dope! I was also blessed to have a feature by The Means on Soul Searching. Take a listen…
