10 April 2012 - Concussion
Hey everyone. You probably haven't heard from me in quite awhile. I suffered a few smaller concussions from mid 2010 to mid 2011, which I naively ignored. Then in August 2011, I suffered a big one. It's more than 7 months later, and my life is still paused as I very slowly recover. I haven't been able to tolerate listening to music since the "big one", so unfortunately, I wasn't able to put out a Canadian rap compilation last year (first time since 2002). I also haven't been able to pursue my own music since mid 2010. If you get hit in the head, pause & rest... cause if you've got a bad head injury, your injured brain might not be able to detect it. I will recover, it's just a very slow process.
