14KT - "Width" feat. Tony Ozier

"2011. This is a personal piece I wanted to share with you all. I made it from compiled videos I recorded on my phone. I made the song dedicated to God, but it's also a dedication to my family and some of the friends He's blessed me with. As an artist, you can easily get caught up in an endless menu of distractions in life. Having to please people, facing criticism on your creativity, pressures of living up to your potential, pleasing others, image, all the things that can create fear in our lives. However, when you put your thoughts on the things/people you truly love, LOVE will conquer fear." R.I.P. My father, Paul Tucker Jr. Lyrics: "When can they measure the width of our love? Never a time Never a time Never a time." -14KT

QTIP needle drops

Listen to me, i never see ppl needle dropping anymore and Tip is Killing it right here. The needle drop is a technique used in hip hop deejaying. The DJ sets a record spinning, then drops the stylus on the turntable at the exact point where he wants playback to begin without previously cuing up the record.[1]
