Did you know? if you play Collard Greens by Schoolboy Q & Kendrick Lamar backwards, it’s actually a recipe for collard greens
So two and a half, close to three years ago, I got called to do my first session behind doors of Atlantic records. I met a house engineer there who was an aspiring pop and hip hop producer. His name was Tyler Acord. Upon arrival I felt nervous because this was the first time in my career that my dreams to write pop music were on the verge of coming true. I had never been in a session with other writers and collaborated with a real producer, little did I know that Ty (Scout) was a huge fan of my rock music and my band (Woe, Is Me.) So I had no clue that Ty was gonna be just as nervous as I. Another thing I didn’t know is that we would become best friends, thus engaging our partnership in music. I can’t tell you how much this kid has changed my life and impacted my career.
Ty took off with my on my first solo tour to chase his dreams and invest in his passion for producing and DJ’ing. Wasn’t too much longer in the course of a year working together that we decided to start our numetal band Issues. So without my best friend Scout, there would be no Issues. This year as a band has been one of the most adventurous years of my life. Exploring and innovating with this dude is one of the greatest milestones I have endured so far. Our band has climbed to such great heights in such a short time, and to celebrate 100k followers on my twitter account, I decided to show you where everything started just a few years ago when I met Ty. I love you man!
This song we wrote in just a couple hours at our Atlantic session. It was never finished, mixed, or built onto, but it’s pretty funny that you can tell the references in the song are pretty dated! Ty is gonna kill me for posting this but… what the hell! This one is for you guys to see where we came from, and where the big bang of Scout and Carter, that would soon be Issues, started!

Seriously though, if you want to be my friend all you have to do is message me saying “Hi we’re friends now ok” and I’ll just be like “ok, hi friend” and BAM our friendship has been made.
nothing is more true
