From The Recordings Html
As the writer and performer of "My Thoughts Pt 2", this song is a reflection of my personal experience with marriage counseling and the obstacles that come with trying to apply its teachings in a relationship. The lyrics reveal the one-sided effort that I put into making it work, as my partner didn't seem as invested. This song was inspired by my own marriage counseling and the eventual divorce that followed, a journey that took 15 years to complete.
During the recording process, I was in recovery, temporarily living in a basement. The vocals were done immediately, and it wasn't until 15 years later that I found the right collaborator to provide a counterpoint performance as my ex-wife. It was a fun and effortless recording process, despite the heavy subject matter.
"My Thoughts Pt 2" offers a personal and reflective perspective on the challenges of marriage and the importance of mutual investment and commitment in the process. This song speaks to the human experience of trying to apply counseling teachings to a relationship and the difficulties that come with it. As a hip-hop artist, I bring an urban flare to the lyrics and production, but the song's authenticity and vulnerability make it relatable to anyone, regardless of their background or musical preferences. AND IT'S FUNNY!
