Return to Releases /
Label: Veritech Records
Named after the film by the same name, this recording was a therapeutic release for me.
chose the title way before I knew what it would come to mean to me. Varsity
Blues describes the feelings I had adjusting as my career/life was moving up
to the next level. Kinda like when a Varsity ballplayer is heading from high
school to the collegiate level. You're leaving behind friends, family, and
your neighborhood. The competition is more fierce. The level of play is
heightened. You're traveling to new places with new people. Forming new
friendships. Picking up new habits (alcohol, women etc...). Basically, going
from thinking you got it all figured out to finding out you really don't
know sh*t. And this was just my career, and at the same time my personal life
was kicking my ass (check the title track for all the juicy details).
from Tucson back to L.A. back to Tucson then back to L.A. I started having
panic attacks. Ran through all types of medication (Zoloft, Paxil, Xanax
etc...). Basically, I had a nervous breakdown and decided to record it for
the benefit of myself and others who might be going through the same thing.
Too often, emcee's play the Superthug Man of Steel role. I feel it is my
responsibility to be as honest as humanly comfortable with my fanbase. I
consider this project an "album" because it is a complete thought.
Technically it is an EP, but it was all I had to say in that moment. Which
once again leaves me unable to separate one song as my sole favorite.
