Why My Rap Music Could Help You Or Torment You

My reason for being in this music game should be self explanatory if you’ve taken the time to listen to my work. And let me make self clear, “I Am Not Using It To Try And Save the World.” However, I do choose to use to tool to carry out the mission that, I feel I was appointed to me, to carry out, which is a very overwhelming one at times. As a rap recording artist and music producer, it is my mission to reach and teach those as well as paint the the picture of possibilities through awareness when on or off the mic.

My music, knowledge and thoughts could very well help those who choose to listen to what I have to say. No, I am not one of those type who runs around with that “KNOW IT ALL” mentality, and to be honest with you the reader, I  know nothing, but through my own experience by my own walk throughout this life, I know what I know.

And here’s what I do know, I know what I know. So how could my music help you? Glad you asked. I think that, by my ability to paint the picture of not only about what I have been through in the street game, and the little that I have in this  music game, and how I’m the best rapper, because, I’m not. There are many talented artist that came before me, and are nice with what they have to offer this new generation music game. I just do what I do, and in my own lane and zone, and there is a chance that, I just might say something that may spark your mind, and that is what I try to do and nothing more.

Everyone has their own story to tell when it comes to rap, hip hop and or any genre for that matter. And just as well as we all know that, much of what is said by some of these recording artist have proven to be fictitious, misleading, controlling and a lifestyle that one would literally die for just to try and live to the standards set through a vision told.

Is that the truth? Maybe, maybe not what do you think? Here’s the thing; you as the (REAL) reader/listener sees, hears and knows what you are actually seeing and hearing, but by ignorance you choose to overlook much of it, and say nor do nothing, why? I might know, but the real question is…. Do you? So, being that, I my self who is a musician/recording artist and even a bit of a music producer, I have the power, and my own way of reaching, building my own support base, platform and teaching those who do like and pay attention to what I might have to say in my creative artwork.

Now, here’s how my music might torment you. We all know that music is a way of sending messages right? Even the sound, rhythm and beat tends to send some sort of vibration (Message) does it not? If you didn’t know, now you know, and if I’m in error feel free to correct me. Anyway, the reason that my music, and thoughts within it may torment you is because the level in thought, and mind state that, I have elevated, and reached in my time personally when it comes to the spiritual, and this new age. If your spirit ain’t right or you have the type of state of mind that is not trying to elevate and at least be working on self; then what I may have to say may go over your head, and not mesh with you spiritually, and that is just my opinion, but just know that, I do study, and I tend to have creditable reference to back what I’m saying up.

What do you want with us, Son of God?” they shouted. “Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?”

No, I am not trying to be Jesus (Yahshua), nor fill his sandals nor garment, though he lives in me, and all of us if that is what you choose, but this is from a more spiritual and logic point of view. So when or if you think about what I am saying to you, you will see; what I am saying to you to be truth, why? Because the way I am breaking it down to you, it would make some sense. If my music contains what the creator wants, and needs, and my thoughts are inspired by the words that were written and inspired by the spiritual connection that those writers held before me, then could what I say through my creative work as a recording artist move your mind in one way or another if you can or can’t (Accept or Un accept) relate to what I am delivering to you?

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”

This was shared with me just yesterday by a fellow brethren of mine/partner in rhyme. So what does this mean to you? It’s a connection thing, and if you connect your thoughts and energy more to your flesh and desires rather than your spirit divine then, I think you now know what the above quote is saying.

So could this be true what, I am saying? Maybe, maybe not, it is not for me to tell you what you want to hear by the offering of “Sweet Nothings,” but merely me, as a recording artist and music creator and most importantly man divine, but to elevate your mind with something to think about. I’m not perfect by far, and I’m still working on my own personal development. I don’t have to rap, but I am fortunate to be gifted with these certain abilities that, I possess. I don’t have a lot of support like some of your favorite rappers, and yes, it takes (Currency) to make things happen as a real rap and hip hop artist. No I might not be the best rap artist in your eyes and ears, but I’m developing to be the best at and as good at what I choose to do with what I do have, and that’s what makes me, the best by utilizing what the creator (God) has blessed me with.

So with that being said, if you find what you just read interesting feel free to connect with me by subscribing and joining my email list for a better connection with me,. this allows you to be contacted on a more personal level by my delivering to you mentally great contact, product and material, which allows you to reap some good things to come like free downloads, and other exclusive material/information. On that note, leave a comment below, like, and share this post with others especially family and friends and let’s make our connection stronger.

Some may tend to think this whole making it in the music game is very easy, I’m here to tell you, it’s not. Hard work, and some of these jokers are convincing you that, it’s the other way around. We as real reality recording artist need, and depend on you, (The People) the listener to our work, and place very important trust in you to help us in this fight to be the voice for you, and deliver whats right, and just.

I put in way more work, and take on a lot more than your average rap artist, and I think I show that. Think about it, look at what I am giving you as you read right now, is there worth and value here? I can tell you, but what do you see and say? For me, you matter. Peace and many blessings to you, and also be on the lookout for a heavy new song coming soon, I’m working on called: “I Was Sent.” Checkout the video clip below. Rilla………….

Do They Really Want You To Succeed With Your Music Making?

I ask this question because, I see that some of these Rappers, Music Producers, DJ, Music Industry and Radio Stations actions, and what they say is one thing, but clearly they’re showing to do another. So, my question is….. Do they really want you to succeed with your music creativity?

Do they really respect your drive, your hard work or do they just pretend that they do as a way of mocking you, and really saying to you that:

I really don’t like you or your music, nor what you do, but I’ll pretend, and fake like I do as a way to keep you at bay supporting me, and what I have going on.

Please tell me, that this is not the case. I mean, I am open minded to others opinions to this, so long as they aren’t being unreasonable towards speaking on the real truth on this matter.

And one of these truths are that, when these jokers who are (Rappers and Music Producers) etc. get into a certain position especially when it comes to entertainment and the music game where they’re calling shots. They tend to eventually loose themselves. Get loose as a goose, and start acting a @#%, and loose focus and control.

Ain’t it something how they start power tripping? Why? They’ll try and convince me, you or some other recording artist that:

“The only way to YOU SEEING ANY TYPE OF SUCCESS IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING WILL NOT GO NOWHERE UNLESS YOU BEND YOUR WILL TO ME?”

You Trying 2 DECEIVE Me?

Are these rappers, music producers, DJ and radio host really doing this to recording artist intentionally? Are they really trying to hang a success or failurecloud over me, and your head?  Well, I hate to say it, or better yet, no I don’t. I’m a tell you like this.

I think it’s important to really know how against you some of those who act like they really for you, are really just thinking about how they can rise above you, and you BENEATH them by using your time and energy for their benefit if they can see an opportunity to do so. Why?

I don’t know about you, but I see no realness in these type of acts, I see no real friendship, I see no value, no worth, balance, integrity, honor, cobstructive partner relationship or respect on either side for that matter.

And if this is the case, and if I have to turn on those principles stated above in order to feel like I’m on the right path, and bending to your will for you to have total satisfaction and control over my destiny in life, because this is all about building you and yours up, and me and mine suffer? Then where’s the love in that?

See, that’s the thing there is no love unless there is a better standing on both ends. And to try and deceive up and coming artist or those who are showing to be independent and hard on the grind is something that one must be able to see and probably experience for themselves.

I’m not trying to save a artists nor the world, I’m just speaking from my poibt of view to what I see, and if I’m wrong anywhere in what I have said, I stand to be corrected with PROOF IN TRUTH.

Anyway, I’m a leave y’all on this note. What I’ve also noticed, is how “Black People” who are in great positions (Successful), and that goes for some of these MAINSTREAM well known rap artist too, are doing the most, and committing damaging acts on their own so-called people why? And y’all so quick to support this riff raff?

Taught well? Maybe. Just really something to think about if you are trying to be a rapper, producer, DJ or maybe your just someone who supports, and or just able to see things for what they really are, and knows exactly where I’m coming from. Have the people become that blind? Not really.

I think more ignorant fits, and chooses to overlook the truth for what it is, and acceptance to it. I also see how our people are being influenced spiritually, but I’ll save that for another time. Do you beg to differ?

Leave a comment below, and share it to get others input, because if we don’t start taking a better look at what’s really going on, we can’t set the record straight, and move forward not only as the REAL recording artist for rap and hip hop, but not even as a people, and being just as bad if not worse. Blessings to all who are able to see.

What Are You Listening To? There Is A Difference Did You Know?

what-are-you-listening-to

So, let me ask the question that many don’t or have not asked. Is it important to know what you’re listening to? I think so, especially when it comes to listening to different genres of music, because there is a difference. I’m pretty sure that many have not given this a thought, and if you have, I’ve yet to see anyone who has brought it to the manifest as a topic of thought to whether some of these new rappers and Hip Hop reps even know if there is a difference to what they so proudly speak on. If anyone knows and or has even given thought to it, both rap and hip hop are two separate genres are they not?.

Just below is a good example of an artist who is showing that he not only goes hard to and for Rap, but also shows his versatility on this possible Hip Hop beat or it could be a rap beat right? The beat/track was produced by  a guy name Blake for Palar Productions aka Sound Stove  played thought Sound cloud.

A well known music producer pushing music throughout Kalamazoo, Michigan. He has worked with quite a few recording artist, and is very active when it comes to music production. He has also done work for a historical place that does a lot when it comes to the music arts hosting events and making a lot of noise, and the place is called Fire, and has also done work with one of most inspiring events to in Kalamazoo, Michigan when it comes to rap battles, music and entertainment and giving artist’s a place to build, learn and grow called Music Making Action.

Its important to consider how the listener takes in what they’re listening to when it comes to a recording artist’s music and sound and even the beat in itself. People will not take music in the same, it will have a different feel for one listener and might sound like Hip Hop when to another they may hear it and feel it differently, and to them it may sound like rap and or even hardcore. So, I guess the question would be is there or could there be a difference? I personally and truly think so, as we all know there are many rappers who are caught up in the title it self and very popular cultural name HIP HOP, but I question whether one even knows or even cares enough to know if there really is a difference between the two powerful culture titles Rap and Hip Hop.

There is a difference, at least from my point of view, and how I take in another artist’s music. Though, I can’t tell another what they are actually kicking on the mic, because its their thoughts, but I can tell whether for me, it has the sound of Hip Hop or Rap that another recording artist is putting out, and for some that is only my opinion, which is somewhat true, but my point is is that, I let it be known that I pay attention, and I rarely let things slide when it comes to a subject such as this. See, I’m not only an recording rap artist but also a listener.

A student as well as a teacher in a sense. There are many who are caught up with saying that they are doing Hip Hop or that they are doing Rap, but the question is… to whether they even know the difference or even give it thought based off the mood that the sound places them in at that moment in time.

I think there are many who run around and say that they are doing Hip Hop, but does their work have the sound of Hip Hop? How about if their a Hip Hop artist, but what their kicking actually sounds like Rap? Who cares right? Well, listeners should care why? Because, I just think that knowing the difference is truly important, because its all in the sound, the creativity and the mind state of an artist and knowing what they are catering to who.

I guess that’s what makes me the universal artist that I am who is so unique and creative as well as versatile with my work, because I definitely do care, and know the difference, and that’s why I’m doing this post, because I challenge whether some of these rappers actually know and or even care to know. See, here’s the thing, you have many rappers and hip hop artist who are inspired by their favorite mainstream artist’s, and what happens is that they like a artist’s work so much, that they listen, and then actually adopt (steal) the style of that artist, and that is true, whether you or anyone else cares to admit it it is true.

And let me make self clear, I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with that, inspiration is always good, because its art, and we all should be inspired and motivated by others work, I am inspired my many different artist’s work, but there is something wrong when one allows self to be so caught up in another artist’s thoughts that you actually try to act, live out and be someone or the artist’s mask identity, and that too is my opinion based off of what I see and hear nowadays in this music industry and game, but is also the cold truth.

And I think that’s where I see a lot of style stealing and cloning going on throughout the whole music game. Hey, I’m just calling it how I actually see it, and as a true listener with a good ear, I can tell. Anyway, I just wanted to do this post and raise the discussion on whether some of these rappers/hip-hop artist, and YOU the listener and fan actually are paying attention to the work that artist’s nowadays make and put out for listeners like your self to hear and critique, and have one even given it a thought.

Maybe it took this post to bring awareness to it huh? maybe, but us as listeners, you play a big part in this too, and have to start calling it as well, because if we don’t then we allow what is actually going on right now. Its no different than you representing something, but yet don’t even know what you’re representing?

For me, I take it very seriously because for me, my aim is to cater to my listeners on a universal level. But, I leave it up to the listener, and other artist’s to critique what they hear when it comes to my sound, and the lyrics I kick. Again, for one, I may be kicking Hip Hop flavor in ya ear like Craig Mack on a particular track, and then I may be on my Rap side on another track.

I guess when its all said and done, its really just something to think about and helps to know either way, I go hard for either side, but just so the people know, I don’t allow self to be boxed in, but if you really want to know my choice of side, I think it should already be clear, but I leave that up to the listener and those who pay attention, and are true listeners and diehard fans of the art of facts in music of my God4lo.

So, after listening to the track above let me your thoughts on this post, I welcome any who has a different way of seeing what I touched on. What genre Hip Hop? Or Rap? Both? Does the lyrics accommodate this beat? Leave a comment below and tell me what you got or if you got anything from what the artist is kicking on this beat, and whether I’m wrong or not, because I just may either be, but remember, the one who makes the claim must also provide proof to theirs, I can what about you? I welcome any challenger in thought on this topic. Peace and many blessings to all.

Are You Really Listening The New Rappers, And Hip Hop Artist That Are Coming Out?

Do you really like the music that’s coming out?

We all know how over saturated & the #Rap & #HipHop game has become. Every time u look around there’s some new dudes & or dude’ets who are trying 2 get u 2 listen, & share they’re work.

I don’t think there’s nothing wrong with that. However, some just over do it. Some people are actually up on what’s really going on now, & have now limited they’re interest. Why? Because much of what’s being pushed sounds just one ofthe #Rap & #HipHop game has become. Every time u look around there’s some new dude & or dude’et who are trying 2 get u 2 listen, & share they’re work.

I don’t think there’s nothing wrong with that. However, some just over do it. Some people are actually up on what’s really going on now, & have now limited they’re interest. Why? Because much of what’s being pushed sounds just like one of their favorite rappers, however. There is nothing wrong with being inspired, but the problems come in when you allow self to get lost by the lessening of ones ability to be as creative as one can be when it comes to the whole Rap and Hip Hop experience.
