Baltimore-born artist Steven Sutton, better know as Emory Forbes, has dropped off a new 12-track project that really showcases his immense talent.

Forbes enlisted a gang of dope beatmakers to bring Thoughts to Myself to life including Mike Haze Felix, Makaih Beats, Labor Department, Epik The Dawn, Ric and Thadeus, Osym Beats, and DreamLife.

Forbes began his recording career after relocating to Lompoc, California. That’s where recorded his first mixtape, Live From The Bottom, which was released in Nov. 2011. That project was received well and earned Forbes an Independent Music Award nomination for Best Hip Hop Album. It was around this time that he also became involved in acting, doing several live theatrical performances. While still recording and mastering his craft, Forbes opted not to release another project until the summer of 2016 after being featured on Sway in The Morning.

Hellifikno, a 4-track EP featuring some of the same producers on Thoughts to Myself, became Forbes’ most successful project to date. Since then, the he’s maintained his musical aspirations but has also been expanding his own scope of opportunity; a true renaissance man of our time. Since 2017, he’s also taken part in various notable battle leagues including the Be Civil Battle League and Raze Da Bar Online Battle League. He also performed at Baltimore’s Best showcase at The Baltimore Museum of Art. Outside of music, Emory Forbes is a successful entrepreneur in the transportation industry with his own trucking company.

But with everything else going on, he still found the time to put together a dope project that will definitely appeal to fans that felt Hellifikno was too short. Thoughts to Myself features guest appearances by Payso, Lingo, and Ashley Sierra.
