Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Richard Shekari for “ROOT”:
I wish that I had 1/10th your production chops and or interpersonal skills so I could get some good recordings! Very radio friendly. Better than 2Pac. Compliments to the chef as well.

What more do you really have to do with this track, I think it's ready to go...

I also believe you have more than you think you do. i can't even play any music instrument...look at how you stroke the strings and singing at the same time. That, is something else.

Yeah, my main problem is a lack of self confidence. Tell that to $gabrielle LOL. If anything I don't have enough trust in collaborators, I think and then my ability not to jump off the rails when collaborators fall short!

Do you know the good thing about lack of self confidence?
These words: SELF CONFIDENCE!
It's not OTHERS CONFIDENCE
Which means the only thing that stands between you and doing what you really want to do is yourSELF .
I always have problems working with other people too though. Like the time I started music, it was supposed to be a group thingy. We called ourselves Rex & Max;
W had these good songs and started doing shows and all, my partner messed us up cause he had other agendas. We weren't really making much then 2002 but had lots of fans so we were able to stage shows and pull crowds. Well, soon my partner began to have ideas. he started to think that because we hosted many shows means we were making money. So he planned with these other guys to come rob us after a show, and funny thing was, he spent the entire money sent to him to pay for the venue and DJ. But still was planning to have us rob, it didn't make any sense and I was to go perfume alongside he, he is a good dancer so his work was just to show his moves while i rap on stage.
It was christmas, so i left school and went for the show in a different state only for me to find out that some other artists have booked the place and there was no DJ etc. It was bad, we had a fight and later I was told about the plan he had with some other dudes to rob us.
After that we parted ways I went solo. Met another producer who wanted us to work on an album together. after recording almost seven tracks, we had a problem and that project got dumped. So i am finding hard to trust these guys. I love doing my thing alone. face it alone, I am my only foe now so if something don't go on itz cause i refuse to

Yeah, sadly this kind of back-biting and in-fighting/second guessing and jealousy takes place where it 'shouldn't'. But opposites attract and when there are limited resources and hunger -- there will be war...
