    "The wolf and the lamb shall feed together" - Isaiah 65:25

    Given the theme of this album it is only right that this journey began for me on April 20, 2019, the day I quit my job and bought FL Studio. At that time weed (among other vices) had a hold on me. It's even more fitting that this part of my journey is completed today on Good Friday 2020. It is today where we remember and honor the crucifixion of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is also a day where we witnessed one of the clearest examples of a WOLF becoming a SHEEP.

    In the Bible wolves are often used to represent sinners, specifically those who attack the people of God. Sheep are often used to represent the innocence and harmlessness that, ideally, the people of God should exhibit.

    According to the Gospel of Matthew and Mark, originally both of the thieves being crucified alongside Jesus mocked Him. However, according to the Gospel of Luke, during the course of the crucifixion the heart of one of the thieves (now commonly known as the PENITENT THIEF) was changed as he rebuked the other thief for mocking Christ.

    The PENITENT THIEF expressed to the other thief that they deserved their punishment and also acknowledged that Jesus did not deserve His punishment.

    He then made a request to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.", acknowledging Christ as Lord and Savior.

    Jesus replied with a simple assurance, "Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise."

    And just like that, a WOLF became a SHEEP.

    For the last year, I have been making sad, dark music and this collection of music is the best of what came out of those sessions, in my humble opinion. I'm hoping I can find a way to make some lighter pieces going forward because by God's grace I'm no longer in a depressed mental space anymore and haven't been for quite some time now. Slow melodic moody music do be hitting different though but hopefully I can figure it out.

    WOLVES BECOME SHEEP.

    I hope y'all feel it. 鈾ワ笍

    Honestly really happy with how this turned out. By the grace of God I feel like I captured the sound in my head that I've been trying to execute for the last year. 808s & Heartbreak/Take Care vibes for the most part.

    I feel you but to me the story is important and apart of the art as a whole.

    Next project won't have a whole backstory thou.

    Not saying your story is not important, I'm just suggesting to let people figure out the story by weaving it into your music. Later on down the line it's cool to talk about the story and themes and what was going on in your head

    but I feel like once a project is put out, it's best to let the listener soak it in, and try to understand what's going on in it and all the themes.

    Just giving my opinion, people dont like to be spoon fed and part of art is the mystery and figuring out the artists purpose rather than them just conveying it freely in a paragraph to go along with it.

    I usually agree fam. That we as artists should just let the art speak for itself and not try to over-explain things.

    But for this specific project I just wanted it to be clear where this music is coming from spiritually.

    I do plan on continuing to perfect how the effect sounds on my vocals.

    But I really like how this song came out tbh.
