Liner Notes...

First and foremost... THANK YOU GOD!! THANK YOU GOD! THANK YOU GOD!! I GIVE YOU THE PRAISE AND HONOR YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO COMPLETE THIS ALBUM AND TRUSTING IN YOU ALONG THE WAY... SOME DAYS MY CREATIVE SIDE WASN'T ALWAYS IN TUNE... BUT GOD FOUND A WAY TO MAKE SURE THAT MY SPIRIT WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE TO PRODUCE THIS ALBUM... every song you hear on the album was me dedicating a countless amount of hours to producing each one... This album is so much bigger than me... it's dedicated to my late grandmother who passed away only three months after moving to the City of Atlanta... as the years have gone by I can still feel my grandmothers spirit walk with me each day... it was such a challenge to adjust to a new environment and grieve my grandmothers passing... Since I didn't have the closure that I desired after her death I was inspired by her mark on this earth to do an album and dedicate it to her... the album embodies the morals and values of what she stood for and I believe will bring Faith, Hope, Motivation and encouragement for all those that believe... there's been so much going on around us if we stop and think for a second... from the Nigel Shelby suicide to the shooting massacre that occurred at the Wal-Mart in El Paso to the Dayton Ohio shooting... I find the now in this day and age people have become more bitter and that negative toxic energy seems to be rubbing off on a lot of those around us... I want to thank everyone who was featured on the Album... I truly couldn't have put together what I feel in my most humblest opinion is a masterpiece.. Ju Diz'el and Taryn Kane who knew we all could put together a track as powerful as "Fellowship" I want to thank you Ju Diz'el for really tuning your energy towards Faith and writing such a beautiful track.. you know I always got you when it comes to a beat homie.. Taryn Kane... God knew what he was doing when he brought you into my life... we met through a mutual friend and I never thought we would become great friends... but I knew the day I heard you sing for the first time I just knew we had to work together... you have an amazing powerful voice... I feel blessed and my spirit feels renewed every time I hear your sing... B3sbr... man I tell you what... "Let There Be Light" is a track that is more than 5 years old... I was sitting on it for the longest... 5 years ago I didn't have the knowledge I have now in terms of producing and could never get the track to a quality level that I desired... but I revisited the track later on as my skills with producing got better and when I let you hear it and what you wrote I knew it had a place on my Faith album... I'm grateful that God placed you into my life as a friend and as someone who I've enjoyed creating music with... Derick Womack... I want to thank you so much for helping me with my album... who knew I would come across you singing acapella on your instagram to a song called "Chains Are Gone" extracting the vocal from your instagram video and was able to master it good enough to utilize on the album... I think we definitely need to continue working together...  I believe you have an amazing, gifted voice that needs to continue to shine in this world... you can SANG boy lol... stay blessed... On a final note.. Moms you came through on God's Love and Blessings... I'm glad that we finally got a chance to utilize the "Hear Me God" piece that you wrote on "God's Love"... I get emotional every time I hear your amazing voice on it... I know these past few years without my grandmother and of course your mother hasn't been easy... but I know without a doubt that her spirit lives on and it's certainly taught me to cherish the ones that are still around for us to cherish... I couldn't have asked for a better mom... you're the best Mom and I love you so much... single parent who made sure me and my brother Tremel never starved, always had a roof over our head and always had someone to come to when there was no one else to turn to... In the current present time of 2020 and the unfortunate Covid19 Pandemic I'm currently 29 years old... and I have to tell you one thing I've learned is that when I didn't know what else to do I relied on my "Faith" and telling myself everyday that certain situations would get better... but not only that it took drive, dedication and trusting in God to overcome certain obstacles... the most prayer in the world isn't going to do any good if you don't apply yourself, believe in yourself and when Plan A fails, make sure you have a Plan B and Plan C to back you up...  life is not going to always go as we desire but I can assure you as long as you only allow good people and energy in your life and realize everything happens for a reason and every mistake is a lesson... you will make it and it will only make you a stronger and better person in the end... 

P.S. I want to thank all the host of family and friends who contributed to the Meaning of Faith track... that was truly a special touch for the intro to my album...  Let me of course not forget to mention the special family members on my shoutout track to include Aunt Monte, Aunt Renelda, Lex, Marlo, Bunkie, Moms... and everyone else even though your name may not have been mentioned I remember every single one of you who blessed my album with your Meaning of Faith... IT'S VITAL TO THANK MY FANS!! ANYONE THAT HAS SUPPORTED, LIKED EVERY POST ON INSTAGRAM AND LET ME KNOW HOW MUCH YOU FEEL ENCOURAGED BY WHAT I DO... I DO IT FOR YOU ALL!! I DO IT FOR THE FANS OF 4THG3AR! THAT'S WHAT KEEPS ME MOTIVATED AND I HAVE TO LET THAT BE KNOWN BECAUSE I APPRECIATE IT... ALL OF MY 4THG3AR.COM SUBSCRIBERS I APPRECIATE YOU ALL! YOU ALL GET FREE GIVEAWAYS AND SPECIAL EARLY RELEASES, ETC FROM 4THG3AR... AND I APPRECIATE YOU ALL FOR SUPPORTING ME ENOUGH TO KNOW FIRST WHEN I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING BEFORE I TELL EVERYONE ELSE... I want to thank Zana... the host of my Faith Album release party, and Aunt Renelda for helping me with preparing the food for the release party... as well as my Mom and everyone else who helped to sell the physical tickets... my biggest attendance was from selling the physical tickets not from the purchase of tickets through eventbrite but I also want to thank the percentage of people who did purchase through eventbrite or simply donated in support of what I do... I want to thank anyone who bought the Faith Shirts, Pillow and purchased the album as those funds helped me to take care of the production costs for the album and put together the release party... I also want to thank @knan_nova for the beautiful Faith Album cover... he's got skills you all follow him on instagram @knan_nova to see more of his work... he helped to bring a vision for my album that inspired me enough to reach the finish line to complete it... I especially want to thank Gringo and Fashion for your assistance in vocal recording and engineering a few songs from my album.. you all are very skilled engineers and even though I understand some aspects of engineering I definitely learned a lot more from just being in both of you all's presence...  It didn't bother me one bit commuting from ATL to RVA to make sure that I connected with the best engineers for the mastery of this album and just to have that second ear was key to ensuring quality... and anyone who knows me knows I'm a quality over quantity person...
