"I Can Dig It!" was a previously unreleased song I worked on with Channel Orange producer Malay. We met through a mutual songwriter friend and after a weekend of making some dope music for an australian artist he was working with, he offered me a track for my own use. I took it and RAN with it. Bumped it at my apartment in Harlem, turned on my home recording setup and created this mostly off the top of my dome. I had just gotten out of a relationship and was out partying like nobody's business, avoiding my emotions.
For those who haven't been following closely on FB, IG and twitter, my Grammy membership has been APPROVED and I received a surprise notice from SAG-AFTRA explaining that the work I contributed to Kanye West's album qualifies me to become a member of the union. They used words like "rights of passage" and "professional status" and I just CAN'T WAIT to see what the union has to offer. Does anyone have any feedback about joining the union?
Anywho, thank you to all for your support, for following, reading, encouraging, reposting, hashtagging, downloading and believing in the gift God has given me. Until the next milestone.
