Welcome, my name is Richh J I want to welcome you to listen to my album and dare you not to reminisce about the old school music we all love and behold as timeless. I am going to give you music you can dance to and lyrics you can feel. I hope I got it right on this album but if not I got plenty more from where these came. But first I want to give you some insight into how I made the album, a brief description of it's meaning, and what gave me the strength to make the album. Enjoy! This album is my debut solo project. I have worked on group projects in the past with Blackfed but this is officially my first solo project. The musical foundation of the album is Acid 2.0. I used a collage of different genre styled loop combinations to create what may be described as a "West Coast" vibe. The Acid Software makes electronic composition accessible to nearly anyone. I am not by traditional means a "musician" however as technology has changed in many other industries the evolution within music has been the avant-garde of the electronic musician. Moreover, in the past we sat around playing with keyboard runs and adding bass lines to drum machine loops trying to make brilliant tracks. Ultimately, we still create music that same way but music software has allowed the creative process to be much more mobile and accessible. For example, I can create music on a flight, in a hotel room, or in the car on a road trip. The software allows me to have more accessibility to the creative process therefore the music I could potentially create has increased exponentially. I hope to be able to create more music and hopefully a higher quality of music which can only become a greater advantage to music overall. This album is a testimony to certain things in life that compel me to keep grinding towards satisfying my dreams and goals. I do not hate people but I hate the way society has marginalized people who don't fit the perfect image of beauty, intelligence, or basic entitlement. I feel like I am a voice and image for the disadvantaged. I was born an underdog, by societal standards, but because someone thought more of me and wanted more for me I was able to survive. I hope that my words and music will encourage someone else to live their dream and put him or herself in position to help someone not as fortunate. I entitled this album Profile because it offers my audience a glimpse into things I think about; things I love; things I hate and an overall showcase of lyrical skill. I am a M.C. love me. Finally, I want to dedicate all my successes to my grandmother a woman who saw me as her first grandbaby and demanded better for me. She truly loved me. She spoke for me when I could not speak for myself. She fought the fight I was too small to fight. She was and is an important component to any success I have experienced. Her name was Lillian; I love and miss her greatly.
