A One Man Or One Woman Army Is state of mind that people should live with . I like To call It Mission Vision. Everyone can have A mission for their own life and purpose. You need to have a strong team , be self motivated And grind. Dreams start and end with me. You can’t let the distractions of the TV, internet, radio, or relationships mess up your goals and dreams.

What Do You Want The Tristate To Know About You?
I want them To know that my goal is to make music that can inspire and entertain. I want my audience to be better people after they hear my music. The main thing I want the people to know is that the movement is going to go as far as you take it. People try to ignore positive movements and rather show love to negative ones. As for the people that show love and support positivity will make others support it as well. Just follow me on Twitter @Dee-1 , I want to be revolutionary pick up where Malcolm X and Tupac left off in my own way.
