“The musical diversity on this album is highly impressive. A place where real-life action transcends into thoughts and images, nothing less than existential matters, expertly arranged.”

“8bliss music titillates the soul. A revolutionary style that pushes the boundaries of typical Hip Hop to set a standard of what is destined to greatness. Deep lyrics that float on beats that twitter the eardrum, entice the mind, and calm the heart.”

“I feel like nothing I can say about his album will truly do it justice. Hip-Hop, spoken word, poetry, philosophy, spirituality, life. I'm stricken by the openness and honesty. Auditory artwork.”
