I am working on my first hip-hop album. I need to record, master, and press the whole album.
I am working on my first album "Maintenance". A complete Hip Hop project with at least 12 songs. I do maintenance work at an apartment complex as my day job, and the album is (in part) an expression of the world through the eyes of a maintenance worker. My music is about life in general including all the emotional ups and downs, hard questions, and painful realities therein. I try to focus on subject matter that is often neglected or misrepresented by most mainstream Hip Hop. The music I make is a bit different from the norm, but I think many people will relate to it. I need to record, master, and press the album. I plan to press a thousand copies and make the album available on itunes. The funds will go towards studio time, mastering, printing the cd's and inserts, as well as making the album available at online music stores.
I've written about a wide range of subjects for this album. So far I've got songs about: human trafficking, slavery in american history, fighting social injustice, dancing (metaphorically speaking), and living free in an increasingly conformist social climate. I also have a few spoken words about enduring through pain and loving thy neighbor. I make music about life and the things I think we should all be thinking about and talking about. :)
