Over the Christmas season in 2019, CHH artist Derek Minor threw a contest called ‘The 12 Days of Beatsmas’. In this contest, he produced and released a new instrumental each day for 12 days, and challenged artists to pick one of the instrumentals to write and record a song to.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love rap contests. I don’t ever enter them expecting to win, but I certainly enjoy the challenge! And so, even though this contest sprung up during a pretty busy time, I couldn’t resist!
For this contest, I decided to take Derek Minor’s challenge a step further. I made a personal challenge to myself to write, record and release a new song every day, to each and every one of the instrumentals he made available.
It was difficult at times, but I’m proud to say that I completed the personal challenge! Some of the songs I think turned out very well, and I am excited to be able to share this project with you!

This 12 song project, aptly-titled ’12 Days’, is available to hear in its entirety on my YouTube channel. Check it out below! I hope you enjoy it, and would love to hear your feedback. Which song is your favorite?
Thanks for continuing to support my music and my ministry. It means the world to me to have you along for the ride, and I look forward to sharing all that 2020 has to offer with you!
