2020, oh 2020, what a year. Where do I begin to describe this rollercoaster? It really goes without saying, but 2020 was a year unlike any other. I mean, I know we can say that all the time, but this was entirely different. It seemed like every month, there was something else krazy happening, and it was huge. Whether it was the pandemic, the people we lost, or the protests that captured the world, we’ve never seen anything like it. Honestly, it seemed like things would never let up.

In addition, we also experienced an election year. It captivated us, it moved us, and it divided us. It seems like everyone had election fever, as there was a record turnout in the U.S. for voting. But even with the people making their voices heard, there still continues to be unresolved issues. And I mean, what a time for it to be an election year, right? We faced COVID, which shut down the world and changed everything. As the vaccine slowly starts to get distributed, there’s one thing I can tell you…2020 will be one for the history books.

While I could spend all day talking about the events that made up 2020, I won’t. Instead, as I do every time around this year, I want to revisit my year and talk about what characterized it. From highlights, to favorite things, to expectations for the new year, there’s a lot on my mind to share. So sit back, relax, and vibe out with me as I talk about my year in 2020!

“So, hands in the air, let’s hear it for
The start of a brand new America”

– Eminem on “Like Home

It’s been a crazy year, hasn’t it? I’m thinking about the political season of 2020 and how divisive things got. In reality, I feel like it would’ve been even worse if people were going out more. But in a unique year, things played out the way they did. One takeaway I did get from political season 2020 is the importance of unifying…especially with the election behind us.

“Music is reflection of self”
– Eminem on “Sing for the Moment

Do you ever feel like life is so fast paced that it’s hard to catch your breath? Or that there’s so much going on, time passes by very quickly? If so, it might be a good idea to stop and take a time to reflect.

Featured on my mixtape “He’s a Monster!”, here is my single for “Yes We Can (And We Did).” Produced by TypeNyce, we released this the day after Barack Obama won the election in 2008.

This is part of my project re-release series, as I re-release some of my songs that have appeared on previous mixtapes. I felt like there may be people that haven’t heard these, and it would be good to share with new audiences. It’s also possible people have heard these on CD, but prefer to hear them online now.

“Yes We Can (And We Did)” is now available on all major streaming platforms. Click HERE or on the picture above to listen.

The next single cover that I designed is for “Yes We Can (And We Did)”, a song I released back in 2008 after President Obama won the election. I tried to go for a vintage patriotic poster as the theme for this. It took me awhile to get this down, as I went through multiple revisions. But overall, I think it came out good and I’m happy with it.
