What inspired the album title Eye On It and the corresponding album art of the eye?
Though the world can twist almost anything for bad, my intentions were pure regarding the focused eye in my artwork. I am an athlete and my Dad always told me to keep my "eye on it" in the context of focusing on the ball. So that's where the album title originated. Then, translating that analogy to life, fixing my eye on what matters to me—Jesus and my walk with Him. I also love this verse Matthew 6:22 - "Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body, when your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light."
What is the song "Ill-M-I" about?
The "Ill-M-I" song was originally done by an artist called Soul-Junk. I talked to Glenn Galaxy (the songwriter) a lot before I put that song on the record because I wanted to know exactly what he was writing about. It's the only song I've really ever covered ... I just loved the feel and the flow of it so much—it's just raw hip hop.
What people should know about this lyric is that "ill am I" actually means "broken am I." The next line says "and you, illuminati coming through" - illuminati is defined as "persons possessing, or claiming to possess, superior enlightenment."
So when I talked to Glenn, he confirmed that the song was really speaking out against a Pharisee-type attitude, aka "holier than thou." So the chorus is saying, "broken am I, and you, those who claim to possess superior enlightenment, are coming through," as in, "YOU'RE spiritually enlightened, YOU have it all together. [sarcasm implied]" But of course, they really don't, and the song stands to remind us that we're all broken.
Obviously I've been made aware that there's supposedly a secret society called "the Illuminati" that dates back for years … but I don't know much about it beyond that. I know I'm a follower of Jesus Christ and that neither the song "Ill M I" nor the album artwork was intended to refer to that usage of the word illuminati. It just has nothing to do with my world or following Jesus or raising my kids and loving my wife.
