God wanted to make sure I was battle tested and war ready, and now I know nothing can stop me. I’ve already dealt with death, prison, violence, poverty and abuse – what else can the devil do to stop me? Every time I think he has one up on me, God shows me he has a bigger plan.”
“So Long” marks his first major release since last December’s Life I’m Livin project. Some of the world’s most fabled musicians have experienced a world of anguish yet still they rise gifting their generation and those to come music they can relate to.
