Imagine me being able to look up every member of my fanbase on my iPhone and actually know who they are on a personal level. This is the dream I've always had. To be able to actually recognize you at the meet & greet. To be able to actually know how you were feeling yesterday because I caught your latest posts on Instagram and Twitter. That is why I've started this club and turned my existing phone into a SuperPhone, a technology that landed me on this cover of Black Enterprise magazine:
When I left my record label, I did so because I realized that most people are only worried about sales figures and sales volume. I am worried about you - the people whose money make my dream possible. I want to be able to say thank you, not just to a huge group of anonymous fans, but to specific ones that actually care about my career and the art that I'm sharing with the world.
I call this group the #Renegades because I know this is an unorthodox approach. Nevertheless it's one in which I truly believe.
