Nefertiti Gold

I grew up as a child of Haitian immigrant parents who didn't believe that music could ever be a viable career. Doctor, lawyer, engineer: those were my options. Even though I've always had the desire to pursue music, lessons as a kid wasn't financially possible. At 14, I randomly found Fruity Loops way back before everyone would only refer to it as "FL Studio". I would make sequences and send them out to rappers in random chatrooms and they loved it! But then.. our computer crashed and buying a new one wasn't in the budget. I waited till I was old enough to get a job to pursue music, pay for my own lessons, and get a new computer. Eventually, that computer also crashed and after a while lessons became expensive. I turned to the internet to learn how to play guitar and over the years slowly built my skillset up as best as I could. I became pretty good at playing guitar live, but production still took a backseat. After recently losing my job due to COVID-19, I decided that I should do what I can to pursue the career that actually makes me happy. Music. I bought an MPC Live and turned to YouTube University. When I discovered this contest, I knew it was time to finally prove to myself that I'm capable of learning anything if I truly want it. This track is called "Old Beginnings" because even though it's new, it still has a lot of history. I also included the music from the Haitian culture that I grew up in to pay homage and to also show that music IS a career. Mine <3
