Amy died almost a month after I put out my first beat tape in 2011. I was about 4 months in to making beats and was doing the weekly Stones Throw Beat Battles to get practice and recognition. I was pretty shitty lol, but at the time I was hot everytime I didn’t get votes.
So the day she died landed on the day the new sample came out for us to flip and the guy picked one of her songs. I had so much fun building onto her voice. Then over the next months, till now, I fell in love with her everything. It took her death for me to even give her work a dedicated listen. She really was talented and I think even now people don’t give her as much credit as she’s due.
She’ll be missed…
I swear you never see the full extent of their talent while they’re alive
Chances are, if a person says I’m boring it’s because I don’t trust them enough to show them anything worthwhile about me.
It’s not me, it’s you :T
