MUZIC – THE GREAT FOOD, 5 Song EP Project (A Complete Description)
The 5 Song EP Entitled “MUZIC-THE GREAT FOOD” will be a Genre of HIP-HOP Mixed with a Sound of POP, R&B, and JAZZ. With the Project being thought of as an Idea since 2007, Donnie (DJ B-Doin’It) Johnson wants to take his Hip-hop Experience and Skills and create songs that will have Uniqueness in sound and style in a modern trend. Using his own personal feelings and emotions in Life, Lyrically, as a way of “Expression” in these Songs, This EP will demonstrate Mr. Johnson’s Ability, as a Professional Artist, Composer, and Performer, to deliver High, Quality Music that the Listener can Feel Passionately and Perceptively. The “Claim” of Success of this EP comes from Mr. Johnson’s Personal Objective in today’s Hip-hop Music. His Content Speaks from Life’s Common Experiences and Hardships that Many People can relate. From a Story he’s telling about a Woman’s Fight for FREEDOM because of Wrongful Conviction and Injustice, a Young Boy’s Dream he’ll Triumph after experiencing Bullying, to Inner-City Public School’s Low Rate Compassion for MUSIC & THE ARTS That has been Eliminated.
Mr. Johnson’s BELIEF And FAITH in the SUCCESS of this EP is an anticipating LIFE ACCOMPLISHMENT that he, as an Indie Artist, MUST ACHIEVE, according to him. He Personally States that most of Today’s Hip-hop doesn’t relate to the MASSES and feels The ORIGIN OF HIP-HOP EXPRESSION has dramatically deteriorated over the years. He emphasizes more on the Subject and claim that there needs to be more artists that can deploy POSITIVE, UPLIFTING, CONSCIENCE, LIFE-RELATIVE Content Lyrically and not speak so vigorously on things that most people can’t relate to or have no experience of, i.e. Tons Of Money, Mansions with 6 Bedrooms & 8 Luxury Foreign Cars, Partying in Dance Clubs Pouring $500 Bottles of Wine. He says that most Music Listeners are people that are struggling on a Day-To-Day Basis trying to make Ends meet – living Paycheck to Paycheck.
Some of Mr. Johnson’s Biggest Influences of Music Artists has been Groups like RUN DMC, GRANDMASTER FLASH, KURTIS BLOW, CYPRESS HILL, THE FATBOYS, 3RD BASS, and even Non-Hip-hop Genres like SOS BAND, MILES DAVIS, SIMPLY RED, CURTIS MAYFIELD, TEARS FOR FEARS, ALEXANDER O’NEIL, and many others. He says there’s nothing like that “Old-School” Music that had MEANING & SUBSTANCE. He mentioned that you can RELATE TO THE ARTIST’S LYRICS back then because they were speaking from the Heart, experiences that most people could relate and understood – even when it came to LOVE SONGS. And that’s why Mr. Johnson’s CONFIDENT Level on this Project is very high because he believes people today are anticipating that type of music to resurface. With a Strong, Sharp Delivery along with Rhythm Tracks that accompanies an emotional, breath-taking sound Distinctive Enough to be Judge as PLEASURING ELEMENTS FOR THE EAR, “MUZIC-THE GREAT FOOD” will be that “TO-GO-TO” Resonance. The EP will also feature a few Talented Local Pop/R&B/Hip-hop Artists and Musicians from Milwaukee attributing LIVE and ACOUSTIC INSTRUMENTS to the Tracks, i.e., Such as Guitars, Electric Bass, and even LIVE Drums. The finished Project will be on ITUNES, CD BABY, and AMAZON.
Supporting MUZIC-THE GREAT FOOD will be an Outstanding Investment because ALL Backers will receive a Signed Physical Copy of the EP along with a Signed-Poster. If you can ENVISION, through your eyes, the same envision Mr. Johnson’s sees regarding this Project, he urge you to pledge with faith because the emotionally rewards, as well as physical, you’ll receive will harvest that interest for other Indie Artist to BELIEVE, HAVE FAITH, and ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS.
"Let's make MUSIC FUN to Listen to again, especially HIP-HOP. Be a part of this explosive moving, spirit and flesh challenging evolution in a Genre that's getting tougher and tougher, politically and symbolically, to break through in the Young Minds today. One person CAN make a DIFFERENCE." (D. Johnson)
Thank you so much for reading and much Blessings to each and every one of you.
