THE FALL / COLLECTION

Welcome

This website is a place where I can share one of my passions.  Here you will find all of my latest music, videos and performance info. Please enjoy!

Naked & Afraid 

“And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” Gen 3:9-10 (KJV) 

Undressed is the follow up of my first album, The Fall / Collection, which dealt with the spiritual conflicts and life challenges that disillusioned me. With my sophomore LP, I wanted to explore taboo themes and behaviors that can cause for us to hide in shame. I feel when we expose the things we rather keep in the dark that is when we truly see the light. Hence, the album transitions from tracks steeped in ego and lust to compositions that express vulnerability and love.

The Trouble with Paradise 

My debut album, The Fall/Collection, alludes to the Biblical narrative of the fall of man. I believe the story of Adam and Eve is an allegory of life itself: the transition from innocence to experience; youthful optimism to adult disillusionment. It's unavoidable. To me, it seems we're all on a quest to rediscover a paradise that really never existed. Some look for it by moving 3,000 miles away from home. Some look for it in romantic relationships/marriages. Some folks try to find paradise in drugs and alcohol. Some try to find it in sex, in dogmatic religions. Some, like Lord Jamar, believe paradise was the Golden Era of Hip Hop (circa 1988-1998) when rap was dominated by grimy straight Black male emcees from the hood and women were just female versions of a male rapper. But all paradises come to an end.

The Fall/Collection is also my homage to a music genre I will always hold dear: hip-hop.  The album starts off with the normal braggadocious, self-aggrandizing hip-hop fare; however, the narrative segues into more realistic, existential territory as I discuss my disappointments, failures, hurts and pains. Hopefully, the dissolution (or "the fall") of my ego blesses all those who listens.
