About

I can't Believe I'm on Kickstarter!!!

I will never forget the very first time I ever picked up a microphone. I can remember being nervous at the beginning of my relationship with the Hip Hop that has now spanned more than 29 years. If someone would have told me that emceeing would be one of my talents; I would have thought they were crazy. How could a shy 13-year-old ever command a crowd let alone rock a mic? But there I was doing something new for my Lord and Savior. Don't get it twisted, I love Hip Hop. The DJ spinning records, the emcee rocking the crowd and the b-boy on the dance floor is what made me fall in love with the culture. But when it's all said and done I truly love God more, and would hang it all up in an instant if He was not apart of it. God has blessed me over the years to accomplish so much with very little. As of now, I have completed four full-length music projects and have done more events than I can remember. Since my move from California in 2013, I had chosen to focus on family and ministry. Realistically, I was slowly moving away from my craft to concentrate on other ministerial endeavors. It wasn't until my time in Montgomery did I see how music continues to shape people's minds. More music must be created that challenges the status quo and starts conversations amongst all people. This current climate of CHH is not offering this type of music as a whole. God has called me back to the mic to create music that will challenge the listening audience once again. Now I'm coming back to a very different world, with technology changing how we consume music. No longer are there CD's to sell for sustainable profit. We now stream through platforms like Spotify, iTunes & YouTube which pay artist on the back end. These new formats have opened artists to more opportunities but the lack of financial earnings on the front end has made it hard to complete projects. This Kickstarter campaign was created to provide my supporters with the opportunity to purchase my projects before they are released. These pre-sale pledges will give me the capital to do this thing right. Monies will go to paying producers, quality engineering, video production, and minimal marketing. Your pledges will help me bring the Gospel to the communities I serve.

$2,500 Will go to engineering cost, T-Shirt printing, and minor marketing.

$3,500+ We will add a Music video for a single off of each EP.

$4,000+ We will focus on starting a label for artists 35 years and up. It is important that Elders are active artists in this CHH genre.

Risks and challenges

No creative risk or challenges. The project is conceptually done with only a few adjustments needed. Audio engineer is in place and artwork is almost completed. Don't see any risk or challenges in the foreseeable future.
