Weight loss and getting in shape is a never-ending battle. The drudgery of sticking to a workout schedule, eating the right portions, and choosing healthy meals can be impossible without the right motivation. Longtime fan, Emile Arthur-Ricketts, used Strange Music as his motivation.

Emile had this to say about his journey to get in shape:

“I felt this would be noteworthy for anyone interested. As most people know… well, as Techn9cians know, about anytime you pre-order an album or VIP package from Strange Music you automatically get an XL t-shirt. NOW I used to be very discouraged and unenthusiastic about such but I respected the grind and still support.

A few days ago I received my VIP package for Tech N9ne’s Independent Powerhouse Tour 2016 and with all the hard work I’ve been putting in at the gym and weight loss and healthy eating, I FINALLY made it back to a size XL. Typically I would not wear XL nor order it because I like my shirts and hoodies baggy, BUT I was really proud of myself and throwing this on for the first time made me feel great about something I was able to accomplish.

I spend a lot of time blogging about my gym experiences and working out with my woman. She’s been a big inspiration to me along with Tech N9ne and Strange Music. Sometimes I have to punish myself whenever I fall off, but that’s anyone.

And now on Saturday 4/16/16 at Irving Plaza in NYC, this will be my 6th Tech N9ne show in 3 years since the 2013 show in Philadelphia. I look forward to meeting with the Strange Music family again not just as a fan but also as DiE$eL-E. Thank you for the wonderful music you guys continuously put out and have been a great inspiration to me to wanna achieve more for myself! DIBKIS.”

Congratulations Emile and best of luck! We love hearing about success stories like this from our fans.
