Holy fuck, it’s the new Chet Haze:
Gerbils and motherfucking colonels? I cannot stop motherfucking laughing!
Fozzie would like to thank the academy:
Today, on the Solstice, I feel compelled to share a little bit of what I’ve been working on.
Over the past few months, I’ve been diving into a passion of mine that I have held back for a while now.
About 5 years ago, I started my first year at The University of Arizona. While in my first semester, I met Greg Peffer who taught me the art of freestyle hip-hop. Kyle Zimmerman,Zach Cöcö, Satchel Lieberman, Matt Goulette, Josh Halaszi, myself, and many more would sit around the La Paz tables and freestyle (or observe the ridiculousness) into the night.
Over the next three years of college, I jumped into freestyle sessions with friends like Cory James Fountain, Chris Fountain, Auston VanWormer, and many more, messing around and having a blast doing it.
Then, last year in Costa Rica, I found out the my friend Greg had died. It broke my heart open. For a while, I found myself floating in and out of different emotions. Over a year later, I continue to find myself facing areas of myself that can be healed and opening lessons from the experience.
I remember a specific point in my process while in Costa Rica where I tapped into a specific power inside myself…I felt a huge fire to create music. That night, I sat around with Jamie Zeller and a few other new friends a free-styled some of the best lyrics that had been channeled through me.
In that moment, I declared to myself that I would follow this passion and see what lies behind it. I had no idea how deeply that intention registered.
A little over a year later, I’ve created multiple songs and begun expanding upon something my heart really feels.
Today, on the Solstice, I’m excited to share with you some of my first music as MAJiii.
Greg, thank you for inspiring me to go outside my comfort zone and to do something new. From that, I have been able to explore new parts of myself. I am so blessed to have known you.
This is dedicated to you. I love you.

And the biggest thank you to my love, Ali Shanti, for helping me fan my flame of inspiration and for pushing me to see a greater version of myself. I love you.
