If you buy the CDs, you can add them all to your cart, along with your t-shirt if you're getting one. For the album downloads, the only way I could set it up was to sell them one album at a time, or as packages, so you'll need to pay for them one at a time. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you!

Transitions - 2000

Delve Deeper - 1999

Delve Deeper is a double disc with a total of 33 songs on it. The first disc features songs written in a similar manner to Intro To My Mind. I hit play on the keyboard and changed what key and tempo they were in and then rapped over it. The second disc is the very beginning of me trying new things as a musician, so I start doing a little more with the keyboard and try writing in new styles. Very experimental and very low production quality. A necessary step to get to where I am now as a musician.

Permanently out of stock on the physical CD. Only available in download format.

Intro To My Mind - 1997

You can listen to the music in the widget below or on Spotify or Rhapsody if you're not sure what CD to buy yet. Also, if you listen on Spotify, I get about 1/2 of a cent (it varies, but the average seems to be about 1/2 a penny) for every song you listen to, and if you listen on Rhapsody, I get about 9/10 of a cent for each song you listen to.

Prefer to download my music as singles? You can always buy my music on iTunes. I get 64.7 cents out of the 99 cents you're paying. I'm pretty happy with that percentage, so you can certainly feel good about buying my music that way. It's also the easiest way to get "Chillin' at the Papa."
