The O'Jays Quotes
A lot of things I write say things that guys want to say or don't know how to say it or don't know how to put it in the right form. "Awesome" is a song.... I had the title for like 4 years. I never started writing it. I ran into a young lady and I really thought the conversation was real cool. Everything was real cool. She was the one. I think she was my definition of awesome.
I tried sports, you know football. They hit me hard one day and I quit. So I was back in the choir room. Basically, I wanted to do it from the beginning. I wanted to just write, that was my intentions but I started seeing the reactions I got from singing. I said let me try this. I kept writing and singing songs to people trying to get my stuff out there and then finally something popped. We had a guy who had an independent label We had a song that me and my dad had written called "I'm Still." It was the first record we put out that charted on Billboard. From them on we went to different musical conventions and Atlantic was the first one. There were a lot of companies like Geffen and Island, but Atlantic got off quick with the money. It's about getting paid.
