Clocking in years of behind-the-scenes labor and churning out mixtapes, albums and a slew of guest features, the formerly independent artist is ready to introduce his sound to a larger audience, and has already taken a major leap in his career with his latest endeavor: inking a deal with record label behemoth Def Jam. I appreciate Def Jam for allowing me the opportunity to maintain and be who I am. What goals are you trying to accomplish musically and how will this new deal with Def Jam help you attain those goals? A bigger platform. Now I think we're at a point in society where originality and individualism are necessary, and there are people championing that, and I think that's important, because I've been doing that and I'm going to continue to do that. Why are you re-releasing it?

Dating is a tricky game. You can ask her directly, or through sources like other Mormons or reading their books. I appreciate all the replies explaining the extent of the aggravation and pain I likely will face. Sure I have met alot of douche bag doctors who have no morals, think they are 'it' and you know that they feel free to cheat whenever. Then an explanation of the nature of your soul and where it came from and where it's going. I really don't know how will I cope up with every matter without him by my side in this new road ahead of me. He blames this on his hours for residency, and to be fair they are really long and insane. Did U have sex with her yet. But life is long and eternal and all righteous people will choose the right at the end.
