New Video From The Artist 4 The People – Certified

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.

Kalamazoo Rap Artist Drops A Short Clip Of His Rap Video Called: “Certified”

Chief Adam the Great X’s Rap Video Titled “Certified” is getting the attention of music listeners in Kalamazoo

As an 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 their 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 lurk in the Zoo.

You have these rappers who gone tell they’re stories, just like I’m a paint the picture, just call me Zoo-picasso. It’s a lot of talented rappers in Kalamazoo so being 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 their 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 video above and feel free to leave a comment, and share it. Let me know your insight, your opinion and your likes and dislikes about my art work. Alright, I’m out peace and many blessings.
