“Ima be honest with you b, I wrote this shit in one day. I recorded it later, but I don’t know where the inspiration came from. I didn’t smoke, drink, or pray, it just happened when I heard these beats. I looked at my YouTube inbox and my man hollered at me—and normally I don’t even get back to people who want to send me beats because it’s never my style or something like that—but I don’t know, I guess the spirit just wanted me to work that out. One day I just wrote the whole thing in one shot. From track one to track twelve.”

They say music is the only form of energy that enters your subconscious without your permission. It gets in people’s minds and they never forget. Nowadays, music—and personally I don’t really listen to rap—but based off what I heard before, the music is mad negative. It just doesn’t sound good to me. As far as the spirituality, I just use it to try to better people.”

SilkDough – BriskInTheHouse

“I make music and I do my thing, but it’s almost secondary to me—not in a bad way—but I do other things. I try to drop knowledge on people, but in other ways too. I study a lot. This is a messed up world we live in, so I do whatever I can to help people’s lives, you know? That [generosity] isn’t in people in general, so I wouldn’t expect it to be in rap. People don’t realize how powerful music is.”

RainbowwPatterns – BriskInTheHouse

“That album right there is an experience with sound. You don’t just pick one track and listen to it, you play it from one to twelve. I keep it straight to the point. It’s all about lyricism. People forgot about lyrics around here to make people dance. I’m not here to brag about nothing, I just want to keep it real. That shit is just an experience with sound—a whole world of experience.” – BriskInTheHouse
