It is a very powerful thing to have music that speaks to people on multiple intellectual levels. Hip-Hop music that is powerful and relevant lives on. Don discusses the emotions that arise in him from recording the music.
“Music is therapeutic for me, it keeps me calm. For the most part, it was therapeutic for me in the situation with my kid. That was something I had to do more than I wanted to do. When I started recording, it just poured out of me.”
In this instance, Don used music to confront a situation head-on, much in the same way as a person would confront a fear.
Don discusses his inspirations.
“Tupac for the most part, Andre 3000, Jay-Z; these are people I grew up with and they’ll tell you exactly what’s going on. These were the people that I drew from.”
