We’re a few weeks into the new year and by now it’s safe to say that 93% of Americans have abandoned their 2012 resolutions. Each year when the calendar rolls over we respond like puppets to a habitual call for action that has us swearing we’ll lose weight, quit smoking, read more, spend less, etc. The problem is that most don’t realize there is a fundamental difference in simply saying you want to do something and actually believing that you can. Belief and hope stimulate motivation, and motivation is the catalyst for success.

Los Angeles emcee Azad Right is a believer. He’s emailed and Tweeted me multiple times hoping that we would connect and that his material would see light on the pages of Pigeons and Planes. Opening for notable acts such as Phonte & 9th Wonder, Kendrick Lamar, Tinie Tempah, Method Man & Redman, Jay Rock and others, Right has certainly put in plenty of work to develop his craft and establish a significant fan base. This new track “Better Days” speaks to the value of self confidence and having faith in hard work paying off. It’s nice to hear a positive message in music every once in a while, isn’t it?

Stay tuned for new music from Azad coming soon. If you’d like to hear some of his past work catch a video for “Spiderwebs” below and hit the link to download his The Time Is Right mixtape HERE.
