I’m of the mindset that you can have music for most (if not all types) of occasions. (You will agree that we explore that a ton in this place.) Part of the rationale behind this series is to dive in deeper into music that would fit a particular context or situation. So let’s get you situated on where LYS17 fits, shall we? Picture yourself a given afternoon or evening. You’re trying to maintain a calm even keel, and keep a cool yet invigorated countenance. Now imagine the kind of smooth music that would let you settle into such an operating mode. You know the vibes! Cool it out now!

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
