Declaration: I have been given amazing opportunities within the Hip Hop culture and with rap music. This culture I love so much was created by the black culture and has been appropriated for far too long. Out of enlightenment and respect, I feel I owe a piece of my earnings whenever I profit from my art because I wouldn't have it if their people weren't torn from their homes in the first place. Another acknowledgment I need to equally make is to the Indian's (First Nations.) For me to live on your land , more specifically on (Anishinabewaki ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᐗᑭ , Huron-Wendat , Haudenosaunee  land) and earn from my art, I feel you also are entitled to a piece of my earnings. All of my royalties, licensing, publishing, and performance fees will be split 25% / 25% / 50% between resources here in Canada created to support the Black communities and Indian's here in Canada.
