I grew up in Los Angeles when the racial tensions between blacks and Mexicans were very high. Gang violence was very prevalent.
I feel like when you are really appreciative, it makes it easier to have a better outlook and perspective of life in general.
Art is based on emotion, but being macho is based on ego; the wall protecting that emotion.
Interestingly, I matured as a musician and as an artist before I matured as a man. What I mean by that is, I was ready to be completely vulnerable and honest with myself and unapologetic when it comes to how I express myself in my medium. But I wasn't as secure in doing that when it came to just being myself.
I think my style as far as vocal delivery and even down to the pronunciation of certain words is so deliberate.
