Thank You’s

First and foremost, I want to give thanks to the source from which all things come. Some label it religiously, others spiritually...the only thing I know for certain is that there is divine creator that manifests within all of us one way or another. It’s up to us to discover, refine and benefit from it. That’s what this project is all about. I wasn’t given a budget, the know-how, procedures -- none of that. There was simply an idea. I even had the album cover concept before I knew how the story was going to play out. This truly was a labor of divine passion for music and pushing the culture forward.

I want to thank my kids, Nessiah and Sabali. You guys are the ultimate inspiration and the absolute reason why I live. You guys teach me so much about life and myself that I couldn’t imagine being without you and I barely remember life before you...because you’ve changed me that much. This project is Daddy’s first official step forward as an individual artist and I can truly say that it’s because of you guys. A long time ago I was told “No matter what decisions I make, my responsibilities will be more than taken care of.” You guys are my #1 responsibility and every day that prophecy comes to pass. Thank you for what you have done for me and continue being the great kids that you are.

I want to thank my brother J. Leggs for being my right hand for 14 years now. Thru the kids, failed relationships, life trips, trials, tribulations, fake friends and building fires...somehow we still here my G. I don’t know what is planned for us, but we gotta keep walking. You already know how we get down. What’s understood don’t need to be said, we just gonna make this shit pop like we always do.

I want to thank my long lost brother Black Pearl for remaining that beacon of knowledge and constant source of inspiration. I’ve long admired your skills and we’ve grown -- alot -- over the past decade, bro. Your studio is amazing, your career is amazing, your kids and wife are amazing....having relationships with other producers like you make all of this worth it. I appreciate everything you’ve ever taught me and done for me. May the future continue to be bright.

I want to thank the incredible cover artist Jannick Missihoun. My brother, you brought a vision to life that honestly could never be duplicated again. You captured lightning in a bottle and splashed it out in color thru some colored pencils. I stare at the cover often and get lost in the fact that all I did was tell you...and you manifested. That’s power right there. That’s the type of energy that gods use to create worlds and I forever appreciate you contributing to this project.

To my parents -- Ron Sr. & Rena -- There was a stretch in time during the production of this album where I had to come stay with y’all. To be honest, during that whole time I never even touched this project. No mixing, no beat making, nothing. I needed that time to reflect and drill down to the final bits of who I was a man. I thank you all for allowing me that space to do that. It allowed me to take the final steps toward completing this project and reaching another level in my life. Without it, I probably would be somewhere procrastinating and making up excuses. Thank you for allowing me to re-center myself.

Lastly, I want to thank everyone else in my circle that has contributed positive vibes and honest feedback: Xavier Walker, Santino Rolle, Rasheda Earl, Bunny Gregory, Gene Scott, Charles St. Benard, Moe Green, Ace Austin, Dyce Dyminz, Lamar Pope, Candence Moore, Kevin Coleman, Fred Forte, Omari Patterson, Shanita James, Black Linen, Jennifer Neal, April Grant, Claudette Robinson, Bernardo Pegues, Daniela Christine, G-Money, Fred Forte, Jr., Shelton Demar-Lewis, D’Juana Fitzpatrick, Dominique Janis, Adam Davis, Antony Potts, Quentin Woodruff, Kristina Jones, Michael Foster, Jonathan Jones, Kyran McShaw, JRSwiftz, Sydney & Ebonie Hope, Reynaldo Famble, Whitney Daniel, Stephen Vaughn, Myckie McDonald, Toya Murph, Ms. Green…...if I failed to mention your name, I apologize. I typed this off the dome lol much love to all!
