The music of Street Fighter has always had an influence in my life. The original compositions always made for great workout music, and remixes made them playable in the car with the windows down.
I stumbled upon "Bird Kick Flow" on YouTube - an instrumental remake of Chun-Li's stage, created by a talented game music composer named Maxie. I was instantaneously inspired to write, and the same thing happened when I discovered his other instrumental remakes for Street Fighter.
"Street Writer" is a small collection of the verses I wrote over Maxie's Street Fighter remixed instrumentals. With the permission of Maxie, this concept album serves as a fun project for me to exercise my lyricism and to just have fun, with vocal contributions from the ever-graceful Leta Neustaedter, and of course, my partner-in-rhyme, MCMD.
Mega thanks to Maxie, Matt, Leta, and all the fans who have and continue to embrace this project. I had a blast creating it, and I hope you have a blast listening to it.
As always, thank you for listening :)
