Black, but not enough. Because I speak "proper English" and listen to Florence + The Machine and I don't refer to myself as "Woke". But, I will not tolerate you saying 'Nigga'... Even if it's in the song.
Hipster, but not enough. Because while I naturally avoid trends and things that are typically hyped up, I also don't go broke trying to look like I stepped out of a 70's magazine.
I have money, but not enough. Because while I can afford to purchase new shoes, I know nothing about what it's like to jump in my family's boat and go sailing for the weekend.
I am smart, but not enough. Because while I can write a 10 pg. paper in 6 hours, I can not do Calculus to save my life (I've never taken anything past Trigonometry.. don't tell my advisor). I also don't want to devote my life to being a scholar and science doesn't excite me.
I am creative, but not enough. Because while I can throw some paint on a canvas, I never actually have a vision. It's always just a vision.
How did I end up in the middle of everything?
Democrat, but not really.
Naturalista, who kinda wants a perm.
Spiritual, sorta (I keep losing crystals.. ugh)
I can't seem to stick to one thing ya know? I'm a vegetarian maybe once a week, and not on purpose. I also don't get riled up about social issues because I'm 'supposed to' anymore.
Stereotypes + Labels. Unlearn them. They will damage you and force you into thinking you have to be one thing.
I'm figuring it out, but how did I get here?
producer / writer / artist
