New Video From The Artist 4 The People For Kalamazoo Michigan

The wait is over. I just finished putting together this Rap Music Video promoting a song that will be on my second CD project release titled: “Certified,” which give a thorough breakdown to what it means to be certified in the streets by ones real life acts. It’s easy for me, to say one thing, and naught be able to have authentic proof to what I say, good bad and or ugly, I don’t have to say nothing, those who were out there in the struggle in the street life can tell the story better than me. Proverb 23:2 touches on what I mean by letting others tell the story.
 
“Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.”
 
Very deep, and very important as well. Hey, it’s naught my wordings, I just honor what is being said when it makes sense you feel me? So, I think that I make self clear to why, I stand to be the difference and why I choose naught to be, and do as no other man does nor act and immolate those who are your favorite rappers, and hip hop artist. This is why, I self goes as hard as I do with my workings, because I want to be able to build value, and worth that, I will be able to offer to you the reader and possible listener and follower of my creative artwork.
 
My aim is to keep building a loyal audience and platform for them that helps me to be able to better serve the real people with real substance when it comes to this music. I’m naught interested in trying to out do your favorite rappers, I’m just being the artist that makes and brings the difference. As a recording rap artist, and music producer and even a bit of a video producer as well can you imagine what I go through just to put things together?
Time right? Each position I spoke on takes a lot of investment of time, and then there still ones personal life that has to be maintained while trying to do what one has a passion for, and loves to do as an artist.
 
So, with that being said, check out the video above produced by yours truly, and credit goes out to my partner in rhyme MC MyD who took the shots. Alright y’all holler back make sure to leave some feedback on your likes and dislikes, and how I can improve in order to better serve and deliver the message to you. Chief ATG X out.

Rap artist for Kalamazoo Michigan is heating up with his up and coming new Ep.

Kalamazoo local recording rap artist Chief Adam the Great X is heating up with his new Ep that is sure to give his fans as well as music listeners in Kalamazoo and throughout Michigan an ear full of versatility, creativity and straight up hardcore flavor that gives you a reason why he stands to be a force in this new music game to be reckoned with.
“I’m not just your regular, and average local recording rap artist, I’m the type of artist who offers and brings a new energy in thought when when it comes to creativity, I bring mine to my audience, followers of my workings and listeners on a dual level. There’s a whole lot of rappers and Hip Hop artist in Kalamazoo and Michigan as a whole. There’s some real lyrical katts in the game, but there are also those who are straight whack and destroying the image and essence of what rap is really about and what it stands, so that’s why I’m in it; to bring the essence back, and to show the music listeners who feel like rap has no life in it; that there are still warriors, students, and teachers like me, who taking what is and has been disrespected back, its the return of rap.”
So with that being said, check out the production, and listen to the lyrics that’s being kicked on the song called: “Hardcore” that basically is Chief ATG X given’ it to em in the Raw about why he stands to be one of the true representatives who really puts in a lot of work when it comes to doing music.
But that’s not all; this artist is so razor sharp and creative with his workings; that he even puts his own videos together. No, not done with the best equipment, but so gifted that God has granted him the ability to use what is considered as the cheapest tools, but he works them like a smith. Its not just what you use, because you can have a little of nothing and make something right?
This artist is showing up those who try and tear him down by trying to discredit his work because its not done by a certain video or music producer and or expensive equipment.
“I’m just doing my thing and utilizing what I have. I don’t just rap just for the record, I’m a universal artist with the flow to go fast or slow. If I’m able, I’m gone do it with or without anyone. So when I see the competition if that’s what they wanna be, who has all the aid and assistance, all the support, all the money, all the connects and even a big fan-base, it would appear that I wouldn’t be able to be a match or hold up, but understand this; look at the positions, I’m a one man entourage holding his own while your favorites put on a good show for you. My purpose is opposite, my mission is different and my goal as well as vision is to do; not what everyone else and how everyone else is doing it, but how i see to, I’m me, no “ID Crisis” here.”
Well, there you have it, straight from the kutt.
Check out the video, leave a comment below, like and share your thoughts about this artist who is for the people. Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Peace and many blessings.

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.
