“I woke up April 21st to the news of Prince’s passing. Before I could
fully digest the news I received numerous texts from friends about
his passing and how I should honor his passing with making music
with Prince samples, in honor. I thought to myself, I’m not going to
do that, I’m not going to try ride Prince’s legacy to gain fame.As time
passed, drinks were sipped and again I’m asked the question “how
are you going to respond, musically to his passing?”
I went home faded, turned on the stereo and started banging Prince.
As I’m listening I’m realizing all the emotion of mine that is stored in
his music. I’m realizing how much of his music my mom would play
loudly in the house. My mothers face happy as she would dance in
the house. I mean she would be busting! Dancing like she’s in the
club! She was good too!
I began to cry and think about my own life, my mothers passing and
Prince’s passing as a symbol of this wonderful journey.A sign of the
times of my own life to witness the death of my mother to know the
the death of a prince that represents almost a farewell to a childhood
that made the manhood of who I am now. The creativity I fight
viciously for, and the inspiration I find along the way that keeps on
track with the God energy means everything to me.All the summers
that passed with this amazing inspiration, creativity and emotion that
is Prince to me.
I realized I have no choice but to honor his creative life by honoring
my own by taking my good friends advice with these 3 simple beats
and this hip hop I’ve been working on my whole life. This is what
makes me happy. Inspiration turned to creation. With heart and with
love. Rest in Peace, Prince.” - Exile Manfredi Available from 22.07.2016
