038 : MF Classy Chris : Everyday Will Be A Holiday Volume 9
Presenting, Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday -Volume 9... Even though it’s BCR’s 38... The classy & conceptual, collection of cuts, classic, some unconventional, but always cordial. Número Nueve is, an earmarked number for myself, as I am, a Life Path 9... Oof, it ain’t always easy. Wherever I happen to be, people think I work there, & ask for help?.. Usually I can actually accommodate, go figure that?.. From record shops, to buddah spots, or bodegas, a Nine’s path is passionately complicated, & compassionate, due to 9’s uncommon universal effect, & embodiment of, ALL other numbers... Yeah that’s right. Just add 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 36... 3+6= 9... 9+9= 18... 1+8= yup 9. Nine takes the shape of a spiral, see, the combined wave of creativity, & evolvement, living life to express, love... But, feeling, well, everything... So, in the Holiday projects, I try to perfectly place, songs that move me, to tell that old soul, heartfelt, type a story, metaphoric, & literal. & hopefully, it can inspire getting back to, or rather evolving to a greater place, of love & compassion... Signing off (as 9 is also the number of completion), simultaneously living in the past, & ahead of this fucking time...
P.S. volumes 7 & 8 are done (for those paying attention), they just haven’t been publicized on the avenues they was gifted to, yet...
