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.

Kalamazoo Rappers Music Elevates Minds

Why This Kalamazoo Rapper’s Music Is The Next Closest Thing To Listing To 2pac’s Music

So What’s the Big Deal About This Rap Artist From Kalamazoo?

tupac-all-eyes-on-me

One might ask, what is so special about this artist’s music, and why should the people take time out to listen to what he has to say? And what gives him the advantage over other rappers/artist who are coming out? These are some very basic, but good questions that should be answered. Not just for the artist to know what and how people feel about the music he makes, but to also give people a better understanding to why this artist not only shows the ability to be competitive when it comes to the music industry, but to also place the power of fair decision making back into the listeners, and music fans hands. Let’s be honest, music is for as long as the Creator (God) and the Universe allows this planet to continue to exist. Whether you are religious or not, and see things different when it comes to the stories told about how this planet (Earth) was created, and how it was possibly destroyed by water, and then went under construction by the creator in order to bring order back is something that you would have to do your own thinking about and research on. My point is, is that music plays a very important part in many things that we engage and or implement into our everyday lives. Music, and sound is far more than what you see it to be. It’s way bigger than being used for entertainment purposes. Just as it can be used to heal, it is also being used to hurt. How? Ask yourself what is sound and music and where does the information go? You guessed it, the brain, and the mind. Sound-waves travel to our brains, and rhythms and the art travels to our mind as information do you agree?

So, in that case if this is true, then it can also be agreed that both have a direct affect and significant impact on us by what is being delivered to our brain and mind and how we take it in and use it for our best interest all boils down to two main things that effect us all and that is our emotions and feelings. Everything is a mood, you can be in a good one or bad one, which draws back to dealing in ones emotions and feelings towards whatever the situation may be. Do you kinda see where I’m going with this? Music alone plays a big part in the molding, and shaping of our thoughts, whether it be good ones or bad ones music effects us like a drug, and affects us by the feelings that we have towards something, and that’s where mental health comes into play. Yep, Mental Health is a big problem, a definite Battle of the Mind, and it’s something that I know very well. Some people may not even be aware of the fact that they have a mental illness, and then all it takes is the effect of something like music, and drugs that are the tools that work on your mind, and all it takes is the two to be combined because of a certain situation that one may be going through in their life, and next thing you know, you have an even bigger situation, possible suicide, and or violent behaviors that lead one to their final resting place or an D.O.C (Department of Corrections Institution) for those of you who aren’t familiar with the acronym, and if you don’t know, the prison system is a big business that makes  plenty of money off of those who are getting caught up within it, because of lack of knowledge and or just feeling like there is no other way to make it in life, and that’s what they want you to think by your own freewill, all they need to do is like the Joker said: “All that was needed was a little push!”

There is so much to cover when it comes to the whole mental illness situation, but I’ll save that for another time. I’m trying to get you to see how music is being used as a tool to corrupt, disrupt, program, and play a part in your actions towards leading you to your own self-destruction. Let me ask you the question that I ask many: “Who is the biggest musician in the world?” Some have said Michael Jackson and other artist, but there is an even bigger musician than your favorite. He was given this position as Chief Musician. No, not me, the one and only SATAN. He or it is the Chief Musician of the world are things getting a little more clearer for you now? Hard pill to swallow I know, but now you can take what I am typing and you are reading and you can think about it, because that’s all I really need to do and trust me, it takes time out of my life just to be typing these thoughts. Prove it you say? I know you just didn’t say that did you, I don’t have to prove what is actually being projected and played out right before your eyes. Some of the music that is being pushed throughout the music industry, Television and especially the Mainstream Media. Click the Picture of Eminem and be redirected to a source that I found that gives some very important information that reveals some shocking mental health figures in the entertainment industry.

It’s business, but it’s also a little more than that. Could it be that some of these rappers are being paid to get you to enslave yourself by falling for the stories they tell threw the music they’re putting out? Just look think about it, and then start paying more attention and then see if things start adding up. I could easily start going off naming plenty of names, but I’m not about to get into all of that. It’s easy to point the finger at someone when they doing some things that they shouldn’t, but don’t we all? But to be honest, that’s a cop-out and I’m not gone let that slide. If your wrong then your wrong, and it would be right and just to work towards making things right, but that alone is a very hard task and easy to say when you live in a world that is flooded with everything opposite of what is good. if it’s of good, (Divine) then they need you to see, and think it to be bad, and if it’s bad (Evil) then you should praise it and look at it to be of good. Now, do you see the power of Deception and trickery in that? Do you not see what has been done and why our children are acting out the way they are?

So now that I’ve given you some thoughts (Knowledge) to think about, now let me switch lanes and tell you why this rapper Chief Adam the Great is not only an artist who is definitely showing though his music that he fits the description and title as a Chief, but also is going far and beyond to be that artist for the people who delivers to not just those who are still trapped in the street life, but most importantly those who suffer from Mental Illness/ Mental Health issues that so many suffer from In These Dayz of Tyme. This artist is doing it like no other rapper coming out, and the thing about it, he’s doing it with no help and or assistance from the Music Industry, Press, Mainstream Media, Blogs, Radio Air play, Family Support, so called friends none except for the Creator, (God) the Universe, and those who are worked threw like the few who do help by either sharing his thoughts and music threw social media, the purchasing of his music and or donation.

He is able to fund his own projects without going back to doing what he once depended on by merely just doing what is asked of him by the Creator and the universe. I know that you probably are arching one eyebrow right now from what I’m saying, but that is your freewill to do so, I am not here to try and convince, but to elevate and educate.When listening to Chief Adam the Great’s Music 4 the Mind he takes his listener on on a personal journey within the mind of one who has hands on experience with songs like: Mentally Ill, and really takes you on a mental ride giving you something to think about and look forward to with songs like: It Get’s Deeper. What he brings is basically awareness, narration the good, the bad and the ugly all at the same time, but from different angles somewhere similar to the way 2pac voiced his message on the mic, but in a more drill SGT. type of way.

So with all that being said, my only intent is to shed some light on an artist who is well worth taking a listen to, and commenting on his work good or bad. It’s something how people are being deceived, manipulated into getting them to support promote rappers music that, if you pay more attention is not the art of Rap and Hip Hop that we once knew, and loved because the messages sent held more meaning, and more uplifting than damaging to the mind. But who’s fault is that, the rapper who needs you? Or is it you, the one who they don’t even really have to convince all they have to do is say something in their music that you think is slick, and it is, because they slicked you right into their Rap Trap, and for them it’s all just business. So, I say to you reader of this post, will you continue to aid and abed those who are corrupting the minds of our children that haven’t even began to develop yet with subliminal messages that tell them that it’s okay to Rape, Kill, Pop Molly/ Ecstasy Pills? “Click the Picture” below, and it will redirect you to a source I found that is very interesting and this is what your children are being introduced to. All…. look aren’t they cute? Nice way to promote something that alters the mind.ecstasyfeature

So, is Chief Adam the Great’s music the next closest thing to listening to 2pacs music in these days of time? Is his work able to win the hearts of some of the listeners of your favorite mainstream rappers? is his music even worth taking the time to listen to? Well, the artist/ rapper has made it possible for you to find and take a listen to his creations, and has proven how serious he is with his business by not only having a very appealing website to visit, but also a blog to go a long with it giving his platform a DUAL FLOW. Fell free to leave a comment and even build a discussion below, and support this artist who shows to definitely be #TheArtist4thePeople.
