This weeks ”Artist of the Week”: HOPE for the future.
“To my city, to the country, and to the world, I am HOPE for the future and welcome to a summary of my world of music.Hip-Hop plays an important role in many lives in people all over the world, but the difference is that Hip-Hop is my life. When I was 14 i started writing to basically vent and release frustrations with things going on at school and in my neighborhood. I went to private school (Phoenix Christian High) but came home to the south side of Phoenix, and that was like living in two different worlds; it was cool sometimes but I found myself becoming easily upset with the way it worked in both settings, so music was always in me, and at the time I began consistently writing to instrumentals and just practicing my own version of songs. When I was 17 I started recording here and there and I hated the sound of my voice at first, I was like “I sound like a monotone tryin’ to give a speech!” LOL. Eventually I would get better but my sessions were cut when I went off to college in Virinia(Hampton University), and there I felt like I had to start from scratch. Although the Hip-Hop scene was different I felt comfortable because I was always into music from the east coast and the west coast, so I was aware. My style, I feel, brings out both. In 2008 started getting serious and my confidence in my music started growing and so did my vision. I put together a fourteen track mix of songs I recorded over various instrumentals and put it out for the public to respond to it, and s far everything I heard (minus a few haters) has been positive. Just like the music that I make. My goal is to bring storytelling and messages back into Hip-Hop, and make people feel good when they listen to it. This world is too negative to me right now, so everything I make is going to have a betterview of whatever situation I face. I want the world to listen and relate to me, and at the end of the day say “He took the words right out of my mouth!” So show as much love and support as you can, because I’m headed to the sky without a helmet wheather you like me or not!”
-HOPE for the future.
