The essence of love, romance and sex is embodied in music. BLACK RADIO is the womb of this essence giving birth to all the maturations that we so desire. This essence SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT, looks like AFRO BLUE and ALWAYS SHINE. The LIFT OFF MIC CHECK is a LETTER TO HERMOINE that opens up CONSEQUENCE OF JEALOUSY but allows us to CHERISH THE DAY and AH YEAH makes us remember WHY DO WE TRY to MOVE LOVE because we know it’s GONNA BE ALRIGHT…SAY WHAT SAY WHAT SAY WHAT??

“It’s not on us to change people, it’s on us to Love them… And if our love doesn’t inspire any change in them then that’s not the person we’re supposed to be with..” . Good love requires us to grow, it challenges us, and when it’s real, it ends up changing us for the better. But it’s not on me to change you before I genuinely try to love you. And it does me no good wishing you were different because love starts with acceptance. So if I spend all my time wishing parts of you weren’t there, I can never fully love you in a way that makes you better…Rob Hill Sr
