“*sigh* this will not be the last time I go off about this that’s for sure … it’s just frustrating having people steal from you and not be able to do anything about it.

“The model is broken man. Fucking broken. Next time I rate I sell my album to a brand and give it all away for free … then we can all win.

“I’m sorry to rant like this and stuff, but this shit got me tight. Downloading my album is literally STEALING FOOD OUT OF MY DAUGHTERS MOUTH. Literally. We work super super hard to give you this music.”

“Shit is so messed up that people will download your shit for free off the internet and tell you … ey, bro … I’m your biggest fan.
