This is my first studio album. Originally a mixtape but I took off all tracks that were to industry beats. I began recording this back in December of 2010. I spent so much time traveling back and forth on the bus and train going to this studio out in Waltham, MA. I was working with my (then) friend and engine, Influenc at the time. I was just a wide eyed 24 year old with no direction just making enough money to go to the studio every two weeks.

Before I put this album out, I moved down to Orlando, Florida. Within weeks my apartment got broken into and they stole my MacBook, HD & and other laptop. I was crushed, but it gave me the drive to record new music. So this LightYears project means a lot and although it was never finished properly, this is what I was able to come up with.
