“Do Yo’ Thang” is both the title of the EP and the name of the single off my very first solo project. “Do Yo’ Thang,” will always have a special place in my heart because for the first time in my career I met a producer that had beats that perfectly fit my personality. The concept of “Do Yo’ Thang” was simple, “F** the haters and naysayers and keep doing you”.. That was my head space back in the day and for the most part that’s what keeps me going today. I remember when I first heard the track in the studio. It was different from the production I heard on the radio at the time. Not too fast or slow and not too much music. It had a bit of an electro vibe, which I liked since I was cool with some of the Techno greats in Detroit (shout out to Juan Atkins and Eddie Fowlkes) and gave me the privilege of honing my skills over their masterpieces. The “Do Yo’ Thang” beat was the perfect marriage of Hip Hop and electro and allowed me to express myself in a way I hadn’t before. It was the perfect track. I got in that booth and brought that fiya. Many of my fans and friends still say that’s their favorite song… Raw, edgy, but still classy- Do Yo’ Thang, gives you all that plus a hook. Take a listen here. I’m sure it will become one of your favorites as well.
Special shout to Devon Fields and Vic the “Tracksmith” Bullard as well as the many people that came into my life at the time to make the project happen.
Until the next time…
See You at the Top,
