Rap artist creates a visual example of the difference in the representatives of the Rap culture

What You See Is Not Always What You Get If You Don’t Want It


So tell me, what do you see? when you take a good focused look at the image in the above video? What is the first thing that comes to mind? Is the first thought right off the back a good one? Be honest. I am asking this question, because I’m showing you, the visitor of this site, and or reader of this post how important you are, and how much your thoughts count when it comes to the culture of Rap and Hip Hop. how important it is for you, the listener to pay attention to what you see, and listen to especially in these day’s of time where the truth is now stranger than fiction.

I’m not going to spend a lot of time on this topic, and its far more to it than me just wanting to get your attention for the purpose of being looked at as just another rapper trying to get on, be seen and get a record deal. My purpose is based off of my mission, and that is to reach one, to teach one by helping my audience to see, and know why I do what I do when it comes to making and producing music. But not only that, I have been gifted and given a particular type of authority granted by our supreme Creator to take on a task by my own freewill to do better with what has been given to me, than to misuse, abuse and be irresponsible with powers that would either help or hinder, heal or destroy. When you know you possess these powers (Co-Creator), it is up to you to figure out how they will be used no matter what form of art you are using it with.

So what would be an example of this certain power? Well, let me now direct you back to the image/video above, and then analyze what I mean. see, we all know how the rap culture has been, and is being used and misused for the sake of the promotion and glorifying of money, fame and material things. Have we not seen this picture before? How many rappers verbally sold you a dream by illusion? Trickery right? Well, who told us to fall for it? Was a gun placed to our head and made to? And it gets deeper, but my point is, is that we as consumers and listeners of the different music we listen are the ones who make or break the so-called BOSSES in rap and hip hop you know why? Because without us supporting their visions, ideas, and works they can no longer feed off your energy, and power that helps them gain off you, profit and even be controlled without you even being aware of the means of control that is being placed upon your mind.

So, here’s the deal when it comes to me, and what I place on the table and contribute to the rap and hip hop culture/game. What I bring to the game is what has always been here, but I’m just the one to bring it in a whole new and different way, and on a advanced level. See, when it comes to my style of flow, creativity and production, I refuse to allow myself to be boxed in and or a label placed upon me that I choose to either accept or not accept. When I’m asked the question: “what type of music do you do?” My answer is… I am a creative artist with the abilities to be universal, but I am more of a rap artist, and that is for a reason. I don’t claim to be a hip hop artist, but I possess the ability to do it, and do it well when I need to, it just all depends on the mood, and what project is at hand. My aim is to show people who see how watered down the rap and hip hop game has become; that all is not lost, every artist is not subject to following what is trendy and clone like.

Every rap and or hip hop artist is not selling out, and every artist doesn’t have to wave money and promote death in order to be seen as a good and or great recording artist. Temptation is real people, and its being used at a high frequency and they are using you to get away with the destroying process. I know some who listen to my work probably say: “how can he say he’s a man and artist of God and for the people when his music sounds hardcore? He curses, and he says things that are not of God” And you know what, for some in their mind that’s how they feel, and it is not my responsibility to force them to change how they may feel, but there are others who see and hear otherwise, and feel totally opposite, because for some something that I might say may make a whole lot of since to them, and may even help them in some type of way.

Meaning; if I speak through my music and no matter what was and is said that one may agree or disagree with was there something that one could take with a grain of salt and think about, and or even use to help them mentally in some type of way? What I give is the good, bad and ugly possibilities of what we all may go through, what we all may face on our own paths in this life. My path is my path just like yours is yours, but we all should be reaching through elevation of our mind by thought. When I speak on scriptures in the Holy Bible, and utilize them within my artwork, am I now doing what was asked of me?

John 15:26-27 “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father— the Spirit of Truth, who comes from the Father—he will testify on my behalf. You will testify also, because you have been with me from the beginning.”

Now am I wrong for feeling as if I was deemed qualified for the task at hand? A helper that will come who is sent from the father who will possess the Spirit of Truth who will testify? Well, in my music, I testify, and when I’m not doing music, I testify. and what is the testimonies? Change. The change and transformation that can be seen through ones actions, and deeds. being put through the fire of life, and throughout ones obstacles and trials only you know who you called to for help in your time of need,and when in your darkest hours in life. All my life I’ve been going through ups and downs, the battle of the mind, and then I came to a point in my life where I just got tired of doing it my way and all by myself so I called for help.
And when I finally was able to see what was really going on, I knew then that sacrifices were mandatory. I have many many stories to how God guided me threw as my co-pilot. Life and death experiences that many don’t make it through or come back from. And that there alone is what you can expect to hear coming from this artist like it or not. To each its own, and I am not put in position to force my thoughts nor change on anyone, my only job is to help guide you in hopes that you make better choices than I did in my time.
I wish that I had a dad/earthly father like me, who does what I do, and was there for me MENTALLY, and that alone is what is missing in many children’s lives right now. The teachers of your children are those who they emulate on TV, and entertainment. there is nothing wrong with neither if you help your child better understand and monitor what they are watching and communicate with them about things that way they can know the difference and make better decisions and choices early in certain situations. It is our responsibility to teach, govern and help them gain proper balance. Allowing them to just learn on their own is like throwing them out to the wolves.
Anyhow, I’m going to end this post on this note, and I hope that you are able to gain something from this post as well as any of the other ones I’ve posted. I would love to read your comments if you choose to engage. Hope to hear y’all soon, and remember; the change that we want to see in this world first starts with us peace and many blessings any questions feel free to use the comment box below and or subscribe in order to be plugged with updates before anyone else. So much more to come so stay tuned. Like and share, I would really appreciate it.

Death of 4 year old in Kalamazoo, Michigan was due to Discipline?

Some of these so called mothers are out of control, order and law, but it’s for a reason.

So here’s the question: Are these women/mothers of children who did not ask to come into this world out of control, order and law? I think they truly are, but that’s just me, what about you, how do see this situation? And though this happened in Kalamazoo, Michigan, this type of issue is not just going on here, a woman in Detroit, Michigan committed even worse acts on her children. She put hers in a freezer, and some more horrible acts to go along with that.Check out the video below.

Now, let’s get to my side of Michigan, Kalamazoo. As I was rotating this morning, I was listing to the radio, and the host gave the results of the statement made by the woman whose 4 year old little girl was found dead on her birthday a day before Easter. He said that she admitted to everything that was done to the child, that eventually lead up to being the cause to her death. All I could do is shake my head. It’s one thing for someone to die of natural causes, and another when it is caused by intent.

But, was it really the mothers intent to destroy what she went half on creating as a co-creator? What drives a woman to a point of rage that leads her to commit the horrible acts that were did? I mean when I think about it, it’s like: “man, what pushed her to that point where she felt she had to discipline her child by beating, and scolding her child with hot water?” The normal reaction for people when they here about something like this is to instantly be fueled with anger and hate and unforgiving feelings by thought, because in one’s mind you say: “Who does that to their child?”

I myself used to be one of those type of people, but as I start really start paying more attention to the things that are going on in life, I say to self that, a lot of what we see is familiar isn’t it? Has the acts that we bare witness to not been done before? I would say so, but many of us don’t think about that, because we’re to caught up in the moment of what has happened now. What she did, has it not been done before? Better know it, meaning she’s not the first nor the last. But, some may still ask why? That child nor any child should have to go through what this child experienced right? Why?

Well, from an artist who thinketh’s point of view, it’s always deeper than what it is seen to be. I don’t allow my self to be swallowed, and caught up in my feelings and emotions when it comes to situations like this, because it doesn’t help, it only does more damage than what has already been caused. If anything, I would want to try and have a better standing to why she did what she did. there’s no excuse that she could possibly give that would give reasonable justification to her choosing to do what she did to her child.

So, what pushes a woman to these points of rage? Bitterness maybe, scorn-fullness? Ever heard the sating: “Hell hath no wrath like a woman scorned?” Hate? Hurt, lonely? Lost? Confused? Hopeless? Helpless? Tired? Evil? revengeful? And those are just some of the many questions to why. but why would she experience any of those? Because whether you know it or not a lot of women do, you just don’t or can’t see it unless you are able to. Think about it, one of the first things that you see in situations like this is that, the woman (especially a black woman) have and are placed in a position that would possibly drive her nuts if she doesn’t have some type of constructive drive that would help her to gain a bit of ambition to carry the weight alone.

Where’s the dad? Where’s the one who she went half with on co-creating this child? When i watched the news on when this first happened, they never showed nor mentioned anything from what I can remember of the father. then there’s the situation where she was in the county jail on multiple warrants for arrest, so when I look at this situation as a whole for me, I see things a way beyond what the average is seeing, and it ain’t good. Do you now see where some of the possible why’s come into play? Let me give you a much clearer example. It’s the babies birthday, daddy ain’t around, she frustrated, because she has no many to do a party for the baby, she blaming him, the baby possibly even looks a bit like her daddy, she sees this in the baby, the baby probably did something minor, she already has misplaced unbalanced thoughts going on, and can’t vent it in no other direction except in the direction of who is in the presence of her now, and it sure isn’t him, and guess who got everything placed on them that she might of felt? The little girl.

Now, I’m not saying that anything that I just spoke on is the truth, I’m just saying that, there are all possibilities in all that I said because, because the Creator (God) and the Universe allows me to have the abilities to see more to things than what they may appear. For every action, there is always a possible reaction based off of the situation whether it be good or bad. When I look at some of these women In Theses Day’z Of Tyme, I see some things in them that one has already been warned about, and to be aware of, but us men not only are able to see, but see, and allows self to be persuaded to willfully accept what one sees, and knows is not right about the acts of some of these women, but yet expecting these women to produce the goodness that is divine.

Romans 7:15
For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.”

So, did this young woman with a lost and very misguided heart, and soul do the very thing that she hated, which was to take the life of the image of her because of the possible feeling of that the worldly walls of pressure were closing in on her? Maybe, and that’s why I touch on how important it is for one to be able to see the signs of the times, because nowadays you either focused or you flat-line, “it’s hard times in the city of Kalamazoo where my own kind refuse to show love and no pity.”

How I feel about some of the things going on in the world

Has the world went crazy, or the people in it?

When we think about all that is going on in the world today, the first thing one might find self saying is: “The world done went mad or crazy,” but if you really think about it, has it really? Or is it those of the world who have? Ain’t it something how the world catches all the heat, because of the people who are in it? But yet, we still continue to blame the world for all that is going on in it. 

If you think about it, a lot that is going on is nothing new, it’s all been done before, and we tend to just repeat the cycle, whether it be good or bad, but that is just my thoughts on that measure.So, which is it, is it the world or some of the people in the world who have gone crazy? I say that it’s some of the people in the world why? Well I think if you really want the answer all you have to do is man and woman up and take that reality pill that awaits you.

I touch on things like this, because I know how important for one to think about such rather than easily dismiss it. People are quick to point the finger at the world without a second thought, because who wants to accept the responsibility for the acts they commit when they have a scapegoat? They have a way out, just blame the world for it right? To me, that is the lamest cop-out.

People want so much yet, no not how to even work with what they have now, why is that? I think it’s because some people think that the world and or the world owes them more, so they complain, and remain bitter, mad, pissed off, upset and vengeful towards others so they do things that they don’t want to be done to them, but it’s okay to do it to someone else, because some people; no A LOT OF PEOPLE are control nut cases who adopt other control nut cases ways.

All of this bickering in politics, and the petty war stuff going on. the water crisis in flint that was clearly intentional. The propaganda, the lies, deception, embellishment, theft from the people, greed and lets not forget the planned agenda to place women in control, and enslave and or even extinct man. And this is just some of the things that are going on, and it’s all done by doctored up by man. So where does the world place it’s bid in on being a part of all this madness? Well, it is said that this world is Satan’s, and from the looks of it; it’s showing to be exactly just thought.

But like a coin there’s a flip-side to everything in life. The good, and the evil, the ying and yang, life and death, positive and negative, and that alone is truth in itself. that is something that we all can not only identify with, but also relate to by experiences that we all face in life. It’s not really about whether I am right or not about the thoughts that I am sharing with you. What matters most is that, I am by my own freewill and choice thinking on a more constructive and balanced level to even kick what I’m kicking to you, because it’s not just me, nor has it ever been just me.

I just think about a lot of different things, and ways of doing things in order to better prosper as well as connect with people no matter the race, color or creed in hopes to not only be able to teach someone something, and even allow them to have an in depth, and personal experience on my side rather than go throughout like assuming, and living out someone else s perceptions and ways of seeing and doing things in life.

You wanna knowing something? When I see self, and how I operate when it comes to thinking, and the things that I touch on, I actually find myself asking me of the most basic, but very hard to answer questions. And I also think that, people find me to be Unreasonable, and may even think that I intentionally try to give off this projection that, I’m better than them, and or smarter than them because I choose to be on the level that the Creator (God), and the Universe wants and needs me to be on, but I assure you the reader that, that is not the case.

I do and say whatever needs to be said, because it is on my heart to do so, and me personally I feel as if I am like a vessel navigating throughout these unpredictable seas in this world. And in these seas like the seas that we know of from a good movie that we might have watched there also will be pirates plotting and waiting to invade you, board your ship, cease and take control, and hold you as a hostage on your own ship, and may even make you walk the plank.

And that is how I see this world we live in today, and that’s why I choose to use what once upon a time one was not able to do. This is why I exercise my freedoms, liberties, and rights. I don’t abuse and misuse what has been given, because that’s easy, it’s easy to do wrong, and hard as hell to do whats right and just. Doing so, keeps me humble and grateful for what I am able to do by the grace upon me. There has nothing easy about the life I lead no matter my spiritual path, it’s always been a struggle, and throughout my struggle, I learned and I faced many obstacles, and gained much though my walk, which helped me gain the leverage in my mind state that clearly shows my ranking in knowledge, so why wouldn’t I be proud of that achievement?

“For wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you, understanding will guard you.” Proverbs 2:10-11

So, just that quote alone speaks a power in itself that only who has experienced such could see, feel, comprehend, and see this as truth for the only truth is through you, but that’s my philosophy. I see, and learn in a way that is quite different from the average, and apparently by design and chemistry this was meant to be for a bigger, and more deeper reason than just me. Being Divine is an honor in itself for me, knowing that I was possibly chosen for fulfill the task placed before me in life alone is something that I choose not to sleep on.

There is so much more to things in this life, and many of us are not able to see, and it’s for a reason. Some people have not worked hard enough on thinking beyond a base conscious level, nor have they paid much attention to the basic instructions laid. Instead they choose to ignore, they choose to overlook, they choose to be hardhearted, they choose to repeat bad histories, they choose to be everything that is actually a test placed in ones life in order for you to either choose to be and go one way or the other. It is up to oneself to find a way to bring balance in oneself s life, and that in itself is like walking though hell, barefooted on hot coals, now that’s hot!

But by our own freewill we choose to do so, but it is the experience that helps as a tool to mold you, everyday that you awake it is your choice to whether you will be molded for better or worse. you wanna know what I realized about some of what I see in the world today when it comes to people? They don’t want to feel as if they’re being forced to do something, but there are also those who want and or need to be told what to do can you see where I’m coming from? Some people can’t stand to be corrected yet, they want to try and correct.

There’s something else that I noticed to though. A lot that’s going on whether you and I want it to or not must go on in order for there to be balance in all of this; things had to happen in order for us to know so that we can learn and hopefully re shift, and or realign within ourselves not only dealing with personal things with self, but also be able to allow the works to be seen through self in order for other people can see the questioned truths that are clearly Divine. I know that, I tend to loose people sometime with my way of breaking the logic’s down to what I speak on, but I look at like this; if it’s meant for you to know, and or for me to give you the answer to something you will receive it, but that right there is part of what I’m talking about, some people have been conditioned to wanting things to come easy especially knowledge and standing.

People nowadays are showing to be over sensitive, you even seeing it in the whole political presidential race, and debates the nominees have. look how Donald Trump, Mark Rubio, and Ted Cruz are acting. Trump and Cruz are acting like High school children talking about each others wives, I thought public was public and private was private? but the thing about it, even High school and college student don’t even do what those two been doing.

Now ask your self, when has that ever happened in history with other presidents who were serious, and in the best interest of showing why they should hold the responsibility and powerful position and title as PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR AMERICA? See, some are scared to death to touch on the political issues, but always want to talk about whats not being done right. I use to fall for that crap and brainwashing that I should not pay attention to politics. No! Not anymore, I wanna know whats popping, because it’s not just about me, it’s about giving a damn, paying attention to, and hopefully being able to figure out what and how you can have a say so, why? Because you live hear, and you have children and family here so why wouldn’t you?

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” John F. Kennedy

Anyway, I’m about to end this post, but I hope that, you as the reader whomever you may be shall find what I’m touching on interesting, and even learn something. I also touch on a lot more through my musical artwork so if or when you have time check out some of my songs, and listen. Songs like: In These Dayz of Tyme I paint the picture for you to be able to think about what I am saying, and even though I’m speaking on some of whats going on in Kalamazoo, Michigan, it really doesn’t matter where you are if can relate, you can relate just that simple.

So, on that note feel free to enter-act with me by discussion, and or commenting on this post and any other one of my post and or articles. No, I’m this blog pro, but I’m learning because I know the power of this great tool. No, I may not have to best looking website, but it’s mine, and it shows my will, ambition and determination to reach-out beyond in hopes to connect with others, learn from others, and at the same time people can know that, there are artist’s such as self who are offering more than just an opportunity for you to listen and hopefully buy my work.

But here’s the thing with that, I would prefer it as you supporting my work by Donation to my cause, so if you choose to support me  and my work if you like what I produce then that is truly love, and I would really appreciate it, because this is my time that I am spending and utilizing wisely rather than be out begging, doing drugs, stealing, robbing, dealing drugs and possibly even hurting someone for my own selfish benefit.

I know that, there are many out here who are running these boggish lies, and sneaky SCAMS, but not I. How can you not want to support, and be a part of an artist’s working that are Divine? I can bag up any and all that I do, and what I do, I do in the hopes of getting the right people to connect with me, chop it up with me, see and help me with my vision, and start backing up artist’s like me, cause we do need help, I NEED HELP, but I need the right help. Are you who are reading this right now one in a position to do some good for others through me, and my work? Reach out and contact me, and let’s discuss it. You may have some ideas that will accommodate an artist like me. You already see the potentials right?

Do you want and need some of the same change that I strive to show and help these misguided children out here in the world to want and need to see? We want our children to act and do right, but yet they are fighting a fight with the wrong way of fighting. These children are truly lost in a very thick sauce, and if they are not taught and given some type of hope that they can come  to afloat, then they will hit the bottom and mentally drown to a by exile to self. Alright gotta go, some of the good things that I strive for awaits. Make sure to comment, and subscribe to my list to stay updated and SHARE!!!!. Peace and many blessings.

Kalamazoo Michigan native rap artist is approached by two Caucasians.

Was my experience Good or Bad? Watch the video and find out.

So, after watching this video, and that’s if you did were you surprised? Shocked? Did you learn something? Be honest what were your first thoughts on the video before even watching it? Were they Good or Bad? Was it worth taking the time to watch? Was there anything that you learned from it? A lot of questions I’m asking huh? Well, that just goes to show you how important it is to ask questions. One might not see this video to be of importance, and one may even be in total disagreement with the video, but ask your self: “Is it worth thinking about in the end?

Regardless how much programmed hate is being pushed, you still have a choice; a choice to either be mentally enslaved and misguided by others beliefs, thoughts, anger and imbalanced feelings and or emotions, or you find a way to break the chains that have been placed on your mind. No one is born racist, to me, it is nothing more than another mans idea, which it is, and it works quite well wouldn’t you say?

And just so one knows, this was not one of my plans, I was just a part of the plan that I knew not of laid out by the Creator (God/Allah) and the Universe. What happened was bigger than just what happened that day, it was meant, and now I too have a choice, a choice to either shed light on it even though it might not be the entertainment that some have a thirst for and seek, but it’s also a way to show that, what we do, and how we spend our time we are truly responsible for the actions we take either good or bad, and what you choose to do with your mind, time and energy, you are the one must find a way. And there is, you just have to take the time out to see it.

ZOORILLA in the midist

“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Whats your take on the video? Was it a pretty good one? Let me know what you think, and your views on racism in America. Do people really be hiding their true feelings towards others of a different race by acting and putting on a mask? Is it okay to be a racist so as long as you don’t infringe, disrespect and or violate someone Else’s rights and life?

There are some very important questions here that really need to be answered, and until people do so we continue to allow lies to stand. Leave a comment if you have any questions. Peace, and many blessings.

Kalamazoo Rap Artist drops a short clip of his rap video called: “Certified”

Chief Adam the Great’s rap Video titled “Certified” is getting the attention of music listeners in Kalamazoo

As a underground rap recording artist, and music producer and even a bit of a video producer as well, I am able to do things that your average is not doing. not that, I’m taking anything from them and what they are bringing, but I see myself with a major advantage over the rest who are making music right now.

Whether it’s about competition or not, those who take the time out to view and listen to my work shall experience; why I hold the title as CHIEF, as well as why I have GREAT on the end, and if you don’t know, my name ADAM has a meaning that is powerful in itself.

See, here’s the thing with me, I already know what I am up against when dealing with this world that we live in, and this music game. the deck is clearly stacked against me, but will that stop me is the question. Coming from the streets, I went through a lot, I experienced life in the streets of Kalamazoo that should actually be written about. No one can say that, I wasn’t out there when it was ugly especially in the mid-late 80’s going into the 90’s. 

I’m not gone get into my whole life story, but this new song/rap video “Certified” is basically addressing that fact that, the street life that some of these rappers out here talking about in there songs is the life I once led as a street katt from way back, and was proud and I held my own, it wasn’t no joke and it’s not a joke when you put your own life on the line. I was a part of ALL of it, been there done that, and that’s why I’m certified.

Many have lost their lives in these wicked streets of Kalamazoo that many glorify. Some sacrificed their life and are now in M.D.O.C (Michigan Department of Corrections) doing football numbers because of the life that we lead in these streets. There are some out here who act like they were out there in that jungle where them animals lerk in the Zoo.

You have these rappers who gone tell they’re stories, just like I’m a paint the picture, just call me Zoopicasso. It’s a lot of talented rappers in Kalamazoo so being that that is the case there is also a lot of ego’s, pride, clicks, teams, gangs and also favoritism, and when you have all that going on listeners of Hip Hop and Rap music don’t know what to pay attention to. 

So, with me, I feel like the underdog in this. Many have the opportunities, and plugs, and resources that I wish I had. I’ve been involved in different movements when it comes to this music game, and was able to gain that experience that I’m talking about, but on a another level, because now the involvement consist of younger rappers who I must say have the creativity, and talented but at the same time some of these rappers are either teenagers and or college students, and really have not experienced the life that me and my guys come from, and that’s where the whole certified thing comes into play, because who gone say I’m not certified? And what makes you certified? When them streets talk, and it’s time for them street resumes to come out who’s resume do you think gone have the most impact?

What I do, and how I do it is like no other, and I don’t do it just for me, I do it for those who blazed the trail, and paved the way for artist’s like me, who were before me in this rap game. Somebody has to pick up that torch for those listeners of rap and hip hop and let them know that, rap artist and hip hop artist has not given in to following the commercial watered down way of making music for the people. I consider self as a server, and it’s all about delivery.

Those who have the money and fame are showing what they are doing with it, and that’s they’re business, just like what I do with my business is my business. I used to be a little upset at the fact that, a lot of these rappers appear to be winning, but there is way more to it than that. Whether you know it or not, music is and has always had an impact on our lives, and from what it appears is that, it is being used for other purposes as well that I care not to discuss at this time.

My aim is to let the people in Kalamazoo, state, nation and even worldwide that, this spiritual lyrical rap artist is on the rise, and my workings alone speak a thousand words. Just this small clip alone has gained more feedback and attention without any major promotion push except from the listeners, than a full video and that says a lot. So I thank all my supporters, and listeners who take the time out of they’re busy lives to experience the work of #theArtist4thePeople. Check out the the video above and feel free to leave a comment, and share it. Let me know your incite, your opinion and your likes and dislikes about my art work. Alright, I’m out peace and many blessings.
