About

Hip Hop and Life It's a culture, it's a state of mind, it's a language, it's fashion, it's a style, it's something you feel every moment of your day. Hip hop is not commercial shit. Hip hop is deep. It has a meaning for each person.  

You don’t listen to hip hop.  

You live it. You feel it. You respect it. You understand it. You share it

It’s graf. It’s djaying. It’s bboying. It’s knowledge of self. It’s beatboxing. It’s art of rap-- from battling to complex internal rhymes.

Prophet aka Risen Monk writes hip hop raps with some of the most convoluted words ever. He is currently signed with the record label, RISENMONK RECORDS.

And releasing one album called Lion 2 (aka LYIN’ TOO)

LION 2
LION 2

He is a true artist with most of his lyrics coming from his experiences that he went through in his life, and he is A bilingual in English/French and altogether speaks five languages including Japanese, Spanish, Russian.

Hip Hop is a genre of music, originating in the 1970’s in the Bronx, New York. Hip hop is a subculture originating from an African / Latino American community during the 1970s in New York City, more specifically the area of origin is traced to Morris Heights, Bronx.• Later its influence spread to Latin American communities• This term is often used to refer to hip-hop music, In a more broader sense , hip-hop culture is characterized by four elements: Rapping, DJing, Breaking and Graffiti.

Hip-Hop has grown a lot in the past 30 years as a music genre , culture and business opportunity.It is now firmly a common genre , consumed by hundreds of millions of people worldwide regardless of age , gender, or to an extent, ethnicity.

The primary demographic of Hip Hop consists mostly of working class, African American males ranging from the ages of 18-35.

Audience
Audience

The graph shows us that the age range for hip hop is between 21-29 years old so it typically starts with students at college or university. the common ideology of people who listen to rap is stereotypical black men or women, but this graph shows a high percentage of white people listen and consume rap music. the statistics also show that 69% of the listeners are men with 31% being female this isn't a huge divide in genders and shows us that rap is consumed by both genders so my product needs to cater for both audiences

Hip hop music is a music genre consisting of rhythmic music that follows certain established conventions such as the incorporation of rapping - a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted by the artist. It formed as a music genre and culture during the 1970s in New York City when block parties became increasingly popular especially amongst African American youth residing in The Bronx (one of the five boroughs in NYC).

 There are many demographics who listen to Hip-Hop music , a recent tech crunch article portrays the Hip-Hop demographic as such:  

The global hip hop community:  

Millions of people between the ages of 19-34, from a range of nationalities, ethnic groups and religions. Their collective spending power is ($500) billion annually in the U.S. alone.

 R & B and Hip Hop are the pop (i.e. popular music) of today. Like all pop music from the 1950's until now, it's aimed at 16-25 year olds. It's aimed at black and white audiences of both genders, because the corporates want to maximise revenue so they need to appeal as large an audience as possible.

I believe hip hop will continue to grow and spread in popularity across the globe and I believe more sub-genres will be founded. The Genre will be seen as more positive

Hip Hop and Rap genre as the artists, old and new, keep the genre alive with new music that features the key conventions of hip hop as well as the fresh, modern twist provided by the lyrical content that continues to provoke thought from the listeners. Hip hop remains a mainstream genre due to the devoted fans of hip hop artists who have been a part of the music industry for decades such as Jay Z who’s singles continue to top the charts. Artists such as J Cole appeal to the public because of the 90s hip hop influence on his music, the comeback of lyrical content accompanied by his ‘dope’ beats has gained positive reception from the public. 

Risks and challenges

I have lost everything three years in a row for different reasons. I started a new business last year, and Irma blew it away literally. I'm in my second year of business and the second one hasn't been any easier than the first.
I got in a near-fatal car crash on February the 9th of this year and walked away in one piece. I shouldn't be alive anywhere. "If I ain't God, how the f@#k can I fear it" (Stormzy).

There are no risks I am afraid of anymore. Or if I am worried, I don't know what these risks are. I am learning to be risk-averse. As an entrepreneur, I live on the risk rollercoaster.

The primary challenge is I have no cashflow right now. I would take the perk money to purchase the merchandise. I do e-commerce, so that wouldn't be a significant issue.

Other challenges are that none of my company projects planned for this year have been funded so far. I had originally planned to work on separate projects in separate quarters, but none of that happened in 2018. Consequently, I will reworking my tracks and working my side jobs. It's a lot and I sometimes get only four hours of sleep.

That said most of the songs I already recorded many songs.

I want to release three albums on Christmas: “LION 2/LYIN’ 2”, “Christ Haven and “Live Free or Die Tryin’.” Between 30 to 100 songs. Worst case scenario, I will release ten salable tracks and two mixtapes.

I did a video here.
