Tank Vents About A Lack Of Support From Fans

Written by Nigel D. / 12.20.14

If I look tired it’s because I am. I’m deeply saddened and disappoint that “Stronger” will not get a video or the continued promotion it deserves! I’d love to blame @atlanticrecords but that would be a lie! It’s tough for record companies to continue to fund music that people don’t support! I pride myself on giving you real musicianship, real singing, real lyrical content and being true to the music that inspired my very existence. The problem is there aren’t many people left that want to hear it or buy it and if there are they won’t stand up and be noticed! Who am I doing this for? Who am I maintaining this so called integrity for? Not many as u can tell by my first wk sales..lol. The artist that don’t give a f*** sell the most and do the most! Should that be my new route? Maybe I should have been born white then all of my music would go straight to mainstream and pop radio instead of urban ac.. A format that continues to kill the true R&B artist! (Not mad at white artist just to be clear!) What I do know is that i will not continue to be faithful to something or someone that is not being faithful to me. I love you but I have a family. I have a mom and dad just like you. I have goals and dreams just like you. I refuse to work hard for nothing. I look better, sing better, produce better, write better, and perform better than dam near everybody and this is the thanks I get?.. Again I’m not angry I’m just tired.. Please enjoy my last real R&B album “Stronger” cause you’ll never get another one! #letterfromaking

QUIT MUSIC?….LMAO. TO ALL THE SUPPORTERS AND THOSE WHO SENT ME ENCOURAGEMENT BECAUSE YOU FELT LIKE I WAS LEAVING I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!.. I KNOW WHAT I WAS BORN TO DO! SOMETIMES YOU JUST GOTTA SWITCH SHIT UP AND THAT’S WHAT IM SPEAKING ON!..
TO ALL THE HATERS YOU’LL DIE SOON SO NO COMMENT!!.. IM A SOLDIER TURNED KING! CANT NOTHING OR NOBODY STOP ME! 50 SAID IT BEST “IM BOUT TO SWITCH THE STYLE UP AND IF THEY HATE THEN LET EM HATE AND WATCH THE MONEY PILE UP!” I LOVE ALL MY FANS AND THOSE INSPIRED BY MY VERY EXISTENCE! I WOULDN’T QUIT ON ME SO I DAM SURE WON’T QUIT ON YOU!.. LET’S WORK!!.. ALSO, NOTICE THE NICE HORSE IN THE BACKGROUND!!..
