I'm a music composer who initially started by making Hip-Hop beats. Once I began making beats I quickly learned that my tracks were a far cry from some of my favorite Hip-Hop producer's music. Although my assessment was true at the time I kept creating beats because I was intrigued by the challenge and I loved making music. Oddly though after a few years of making beats and progressively getting better I found myself less confident in showcasing my abilities. I felt that if it didn't match what I had heard from my favorite artists then there was no point in releasing it. I now realize that it's not about matching someone else's output, but to express my individuality in whatever medium I choose.
In life I've learned that we all have a role to play. I compare it to one of those ridiculously large 5000 piece puzzles where each piece has a unique shape. You can be near completion of an entire puzzle, but if one piece is missing then there will be a noticeable empty space that none of the other 4,999 pieces can fill. We are all irreplaceable in what we can contribute to the world so I believe we should give everything that we have to offer. The world is waiting for you to fill that empty space in the puzzle that only you were created for.
