humans of mac+mae: MC Bliss

Something that is very special to me is the craft of hip-hop music.  For me, it’s a creative outlet and a form of expression that I have found, nothing else is like.  I can get ideas and concepts out in a creative way.  In a lot of ways, it’s like self-therapy.

When I have something that’s on my mind that I really want to express it; to be able to do that and tell a story but also combine it with a sonic landscape that evokes emotions of what I’m trying to tell is amazing.

The best feeling on earth is when you first create a song and you hear it back for the first time and it gives you those shivers, those goosebumps or tears, or whatever it is and you know you’ve plucked a chord, you’ve plucked a heartstring.  So hip-hop music, Love ya.
