There comes a time in every one's life, some sooner than others when you wake up from what seems a lifetime of slumber. The world you knew and accepted as real no longer holds any value to you. Every thing you learned about life since a child seems to have been a lie. Who you used to be and how you used to think have changed. You no longer do the things you used to because they just don't appeal to you anymore. You’ve just gotten a glimpse of a world you didn't even know existed. For me, it was like watching myself being born. It’s very unsettling to say the least. The world you once knew now looks very different. No you haven't lost your mind, in fact you just found it.
Your friends and family start to treat you like you’re losing your mind, unless they've experienced it. This new “you” is not normal. Now "you're talking weird" and fighting them to get them to understand. Don't worry, they won’t but they'll get used to it if you don’t stop. And if they don't hey, you still have a “you” to be. No matter what you have to stick with it. You're now on a lifetime quest to discover your true self and purpose. You'll have a lot of questions and a lot of doubts about your decision. You're supposed to, if not you're not on the path. What ever you do don't give up. Eventually you'll develop a stronger support system that will help you keep going. I know this because I'm living it.
My name is Logan P. McCoy, I'm a rapper/songwriter and a traveler on the road less traveled. On this road, encouragement and support will not come from the outside. Conscientiously shaping and maintaining your own perspective and attitude is the only way to survive. Realizing this, I started writing songs to keep me inspired and motivated. They soon became powerful personal affirmations that would serve as fuel to encourage me whenever I’d forget and start feeling dejected and lost.
The concepts of love, hope, perseverance, dignity, self-respect and how they impact my life form the core foundation of my music. So much of the messaging we get in society is the antithesis of this. There are so many distractions and so much noise that cultivating a strong self-affirming internal dialogue is virtually impossible. My songs celebrate and serve as the soundtrack cheering on this “crazy” lifestyle of consciously and committedly improving ones relationship with Self. To all the crazy ones, here’s a song for you!
