5 Reasons Why You Should Buy...: On The Line: "This Is Something That Hasn't Been Done Before"

[With his long-awaited On the Line dropping in less than 24 hours, frequent Rick Ross and Nelly collaborator Avery Storm gives you five reasons to throw some bucks down on his new EP.]
1. Honestly Speaking
Reason number one is because, to be honest with you, I'm on some new, trend-setting, ground-breaking music. To go a little bit further, I've been doing this my entire life. I've been expressing myself through melody and music. Every ounce and aspect of that is heard on my new On the Line project. For sure. I'm a fan of music, all genres, and I feel like everything I have consumed into the sound I have created is what it is. I truthfully believe in my heart this is something that hasn't been done before. It hasn't been heard before and I'm doing it. That's the thing about me, I don't follow the trends. I don't follow what the next man's doing.
2. Back 2 The Basics
Number two, it's to the basics. It's about the music. You're hearing a lot of great music and truthfully, I'm not a follower. So everything you hear is unique, it's original and created by me. I'm coming from a place of humility and you and me. So when it boils down, I'm going through the same things everyone is going through at some point or another. I'm just putting it into a format that you can relate to and really understand what's going on. It's a bit about life, the struggle of life, the struggle of love, the struggle of getting over the home, it's about celebrating, it's just a combination of life through audio.
3. Looking At Me
Reason three is because I feel like this is what the game needs right now. Everyone is either trying to do the next [big thing] or find the next big thing or sound like something, but I'm me. I'm the only me. For better or for worse. I have integrity and I don't compromise that.
4. Ask About Me
If you really know me then you know what I'm capable of. And if you only know me for my features, then you think you know what I'm capable of. Like I said, this is my whole life development. I created these songs. I wrote the music. I wrote the words, melodies and harmonies. This is all on me. This is really coming from the most natural and honest place.
5. What The Game's Been Missing
For five, when it all boils down, I need you to buy it. I think you need to buy it when you look at how many years I've put into this thing. To be honest, if I could [get you to hear this], that would be a great run. Chances are we're coming from the same place. What I do is called blue collar soul and it's very real. What I do is with a gift and a talent put onto a platform, and with that comes responsibility and I won't abandon my responsibility. I'm the voice. I feel like I'm the voice of so many people just like me.
