Good afternoon all,

Yesterday after posting a poster supporting the nomination of my big hommie Slapdee, I wrote a comment that wasn’t very nice after I saw all the backlash he received .Sometimes when people are hurt they say things out of anger that they do no mean and I have been guilty of this many times.) saw the error in the post and deleted it but by then it had already been grabbed and re posted.) apologize to everyone for that comment as it was in bad taste.) started making music to make people happy and as an outlet for a kid who barely ever spoke his mind.) never imagined in my wildest dreams that this would come with any form of influence ,I just wanted to make some tunes!!The lesson is well and truly learnt ..I will take a small break from social media to regroup and think of my next step. All updates will be handled by team until I return…

I shall see you all soon..Peace and love

Rob
P.s the saddest part about all this for me is the big guy’s withdrawal..My biggest dream has been for the betterment of our industry, but all actions do have consequences and I hope he has a chance to go again ….
