A New Microphone! [WhoAmI?]

Posted by Zak Reid

Hi all! I know I’ve been a bit slow with the updates lately, but things are moving behind the scenes. I’m working on Quick Me Ups T-shirts, layout for the new site…. and I just got a new microphone!

Also I’m still alive down here….

Me at Portillo Ski Resort, Andes Mountains, Chile

As I mentioned in the first [WhoAmI?] – Hip Hop post, I love making music. I got a new microphone for making new music, as well as possible audio clips for QMU / spoken word, etc.

So I gave the new mic a test drive this weekend and will be working on new songs – many of which have conscious or inspirational themes such as change, being yourself, overcoming obstacles, etc.

Here’s the new work:

And I will be updating here when I release new, future projects.

Do you express yourself through art – music, painting, drawing, poetry, dance, etc.? Feel free to share in the comments, I would love to hear how you express yourself.

Hope you’re well!!

– Zak

    Congratulations on your new mike! My creativity has been used entirely for the spiritual clearing work I've been doing for the planet and individuals. Once this hard part is over, I know my music will return :)

    Um, you're pretty awesome Zak Reid. And you're from Wisconsin (I'm from Milwaukee and have lived in Chile for the past 10 years.) And you're a white dude that can actually rap. And you write inspiring messages that, on more than one occasion, have made my day and changed the way I approached life. So, go you. I hope our paths cross some day.

    Dude! That sounds sick. Keep it up man and don't get too much spit on that thing... On a side note, go see Straight Outta Compton. It will pump you up so much now that you have a new mic!
