Name your price, even zero. I won't get mad. Shit, I gotta big ass loaf of bread.

What do you win when you become an independent musician? Answer: You win the right to eat bread, for every meal. Hence, Doc Illingsworth is The Bread Winner.
Long story short, I've been pussyfooting around about this rapping for a long time....until I decided that I'd pussyfoot no more. I left job-security for the uncertainty of my independent musician-hood. I've made a lot of dumb decisions in my life, and a few of them helped me to complete this material, and a lot of other material that you've yet to hear. I hope you join me on this ride, because it ain't over.
Bottom line, if you have a passion, go after it, fiercely and honestly. It's never ever ever too late. Unless you're dead. You can probably forget about it then.
Many thanks to all my homies and internet supporters. Waaaaay too many to name here....thanks to my brohorts, Detroit CYDI (Ruf J, Sean Uppercut), Stryfe, J Matt, Das, Scoop. We're old. lol.
Shout out to Hubert Sawyers for helping me realize what I needed to do. I'm grateful. Shout out to Charles and Dave for helping me with so many opportunities. If I remember some more people later that I think deserve special thanks, I'm just gonna come back here and hit the edit button lol.
I never would have been able to get to this done without Mom, Dad, Jason, Brie, and Brandi. Thanks to you all. Anybody that I left out, I love you more than the people who were named here. Yes, I love you more than my blood-family, and my girlfriend. I am a dummy.
