“He’s a rapper daddy…”

 – my girlfriend introducing me to her dad. smh

I know… It sucks to say you’re a rapper nowadays with the flood of clones running wild but I’ve been making music all my life and I will never stop. Saying it’s therapy is a huge understatement. I used to play in bands when I was in high school but I was always obsessed with making music on my own. Recording my own songs and making beats for fun was something I’ve been doing for years and it wasn’t until I started rapping that I got real feedback from my music. There is no greater feeling then writing a new song, hearing a new beat, listening to a finished song, performing, getting dm’s from fans and feeling like what you’re doing matters to someone. I appreciate everyone supporting me along the way and I’ve been completely hooked ever since.

THURGOXD is pronounced Thurgood. The X just represents higher thought. I don’t really believe in god but I wholeheartedly believe that we are our own gods. We have the choice to make change, help others and live a life with purpose. Anything is possible and for some reason my whole life I’ve believed that. Hip hop gets a bad rep -and sometimes it’s for the right reasons – but all it is to me is honesty in poetry. A way for me to express myself in the short time we have on this planet. It’s a release. My goal is to keep making music because no matter what I do I’m not tryna stay here…
