RE:EVOLUTIONARY ME is a play on the word "Revolutionary" in addition to meaning the evolution of me (Kiyoshi) again (re)...I'm evolving again as a person more and more...As I grow older, musically, mentally, spiritually etc.

I'm also going back to/revisiting/incorporating (re) more of the classic boom bap signature soul sound found on my older material while maintaining a more polished flow and growth as a new me.

I'm evolving again, growing, re-connecting more to the world at large, being that voice in HipHop that is bridging urban communities with the health conscious/global communities.

I'm being revolutionary with my message of love, truth, and consciousness while keeping it HipHop and relevant to the masses.
A new me, a new year...RE:EVOLUTIONARY ME
