I really don't know what to say. When I created this fundraising project I honestly never expected much from anybody let alone reaching the goal and then some! Right now I am feeling very humbled that so many have gone out of their way and given their time to support me over this past month in reaching this goal, and to have spread the word around and passed on info, and that people actually do care and support what myself and people like me as artists who are passionate about what we do as an artform, as a part of this culture we live day to day known as Hip Hop.

It has honestly blown my mind and been a crazy last few weeks and quite exciting watching this fundraiser grow from nothing to what it has become today and I don't know if you really understand how much this means to me! It might not seem like much to some people but to me this is more then I thought it would be at the start.

So to each and every one of you that opened your heart, your mind, your wallet, your being and donated and pledged your money towards helping me create and do what I love doing I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart! I am so grateful and appreciate everyone's support from day one, to have reached my goal feels like I've just won an award.

All those once again who gave to make this possible, much appreciation and the biggest thanks from me and my family for your support. This album is dedicated to you all, thank you for being a part of making it happen!

JB the WAR Villain....YUUUUUUUUCK!!

12 Hours to go!!!!

A HUGE thanks once again to everyone that has pledged their support towards my project, I'm truly very grateful for all the help and love shown towards this fundraiser. I am still a couple hindred dollars away from reaching my target so if you can spread the word or find a way to help me get my goal I would be forever grateful. Midnight tonight is the deadline and then it is all over, your help is much appreciated! JB

Nearly there people, let's do this!

Just a little update from me, I just want to thank everybody that has taken the time to come and look at my project, share it amongst your friends and family, and a special thanks to all those that have pledged towards the goal, appreciate all your support!

Only one week to go before this fundraiser ends so let's get it over the goal line, I'm sure you can help me with that? ;)

Much appreciated once again

JB
