My homie Derek Dow asked me to write a letter to my younger self for a project he was working on. Of course my letter took the form of a song. We took that song and made this little video. I listen to it now a few years later and it still moves me the way it did then when i wrote it. So here is my #throwbackthursday "Letter to My Younger Self"
Flashback Friday or Throwback Thursday....whatever day it is here is a look back at a short snippet of my favorite cuffin season song. This video was shot after the recording session for the song. Check out the clip and full song below the video.

Flipping through some video footage looking for something else i stumbled on this video and thought it would be great for Throwback Thursday haha. This is me DJ Chosen pictured, but hanging with some other friends. They stopped by for drinks kind of randomly during one of my writing sessions. So we were all sitting around talking telling stories and this song was born out of one of the stories Chosen told about smoking some potent greenery. I finished the song about 2 weeks after this video was shot. Each verse was tied to personal experiences I had over the course of the next 2 weeks. I like to write what i know about i guess haha... So check out this throwback video and then hear how the final song turned out below. If you like it you can buy it or share it directly from the player! #tbt #p1rap
If you've checked out my latest #TellAFriendTuesdays post then you heard me speak briefly about evaluating yourself and getting to know who YOU are. I found it enlightening for me when getting to know myself to take a couple of personality quizzes etc. These are tools created buy people much smarter than me to help categorize people by personality types etc. If you haven't seen that video, I have a preview here but you can click the link to see the entire clip. (See the full #TellAFriendTuesdays video here)
If you have already watched the video here are links to 2 of the "know yourself" quizzes that i referenced in the clip. You can go it takes about 10-20 minutes to complete each one. If you're honest you will learn quite a bit about yourself just from the post quiz analysis so check it out.
