Before you tune in to one of the most controversial songs I’ve written to date, I want to clarify that I believe in education wholeheartedly. Does our educational system need work? Yes…but that’s not the point. I believe that we all need to be exposed to every spectrum that falls under the educational umbrella. But I also believe that our purpose on earth cannot always be taught in a classroom or lecture hall. My purpose…it is to tell stories. Stories through the lens of experience, hardships, but most importantly, commitment.
My new single, “Class is in Session”, tells the story of my leap of faith. One that required me to make a choice. Do I pursue what I have been specifically put on this earth to accomplish? Or do I establish a “Plan B” through 4-year degrees all as an attempt to make others happy, but ultimately, not myself? These are questions that some of us will face. Will you make the right one? #MayNothingStopYou
On Wednesday June 29, 2016, MayNothingStopYou.com will be updated with a new look and some new additions. We are happy to introduce our Sponsored Artists/Personalities to the world. They range from Poets to Radio Personalities and they all have a wide array of versatility within their crafts. Through this sponsorship, these artists will be given merchandise from the brand in order to spread the love and positivity in everything they do. Whether at a performance or during a yoga instruction (we have a yogi on sponsorship), we will be able to reach people around the world, preferably kids, so that they may share in the same inspiration that we all see on a daily basis.
The MayNothingStopYou line-up features 13 artists/bands/personalities that all have the same or similar mentality when it comes to their craft. The line-up includes Cliz (Hip-Soul Artist/MC), Melissa Malanczuk (Founder of MMM Yoga), Ryanito (MC/Personality), DJ Cellus (Radio Personality/Public Figure), Trey Libra (MC, Videographer, Photographer), Monteasy (MC/Intercontinental Lyrical Champion, Ocean Symphony (Actor/Singer), Cliz &
The Clockmen (Hip-Hop/Rock Band), Austin Longton (Writer/Poet/MC), and Jeremee Tyler (Artist, Pastor, Poet).

Cliz and Layne Harper came together and blessed this track for the people. Not only to show that there will “Come a Time” for their rise, but to show the people that it will happen sooner rather than later. #MayNothingStopYou and XLVL came together with FFAS to bring you a timeless classic that you will be sure to enjoy!. Free download from here or on soundcloud.com/itsclizzy. Below you can stream the song as well! Much love to Mack, Lavish, and Layne Harper for all their help with this track. And much love to everybody that keeps the movement growing.
Following an extremely busy month of March, Eman and Cliz met up in Atlanta to take care of some business. While they were there, they decided to hop on Kendrick Lamar’s, “Money Trees”, and this is what they created. Below, you can stream the song and the link attached is where you can go to download the new single. Thank you for your continuous love and support! #MayNothingStopYou #XLVL
After listening to every piece for Personal Journal, we knew we had to make some cuts to keep the album at a personal level. The Preface was born through this process. These songs were written for Personal Journal Vol. I but after careful consideration, they were not picked to stay on the album. Instead, we pushed them to a new EP for you. This way you can still catch a glimpse of what you will hear in Personal Journal without getting it to the full effect. Please enjoy as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you!. Big thanks to DJ Imminent for tracking and production as well as Nova Sango studios. Could not have done this without these wonderful guys. Artwork designed by Layne Harper of FFAS. Another humble guy so thank you Layne for the incredible vision. And thank you all for taking the time to listen to my work. Your support means more than you know. Together we can move mountains! #MayNothingStopYou
