So.....I am embarking on a new project and I really need your help. My brother and I have been doing music as Raiderz of the Lost since 1999. We released “Prepare for the Spillage” in October of 99 while signed with CMN Records. At that time, Aaron "Messenger 777” Warner was the third member of the group as well. Since then, the Messenger has gone on to do other things including opening a clothing shop in South Jersey, while my brother Sirrico “Dialect” Whitfield endured 2 bouts with cancer. Through all of that, we maintained the calling on our life to infiltrate the rap industry with lyrics that glorify God AND maintained the appeal that rap fans love. We released “The Music Makers” and “The Bailout” while unsigned, and now, in this new chapter, I am releasing a solo album currently titled “Ridiculous.” In this album, I have returned to elements that most fans have known me for, primarily speaking of witty punchlines and clever lyrics. This project is a great marriage between clean, wholesome, Christ-centric lyrics and funny, creative, witty content. From the inspiring and encouraging song called “Heaven” where I rap about the place promised for those who put their trust in Christ, where we will see our loved ones again who have passed away, to the powerful anthem “Get Your Hands Up” where I desire to lead you in worship as we lift our hands up in honor and worship of the King of Kings, this album will provide something for both fans and non-fans of rap. My goal for this album is to provide my brothers and sisters in Christ with a solid product that they LOVE and can be proud of while introducing the rest of the world to the concept of HOT rap music that does not consist of drugs, money, guns, violence and sex.
Your pledges, should I reach my goal, will allow me to pay for production (the beats), recording, mixing, and mastering (the process of recording and mixing to ensure that the finished product is at the best audio levels), and reproduction (burning copies of the album, and artwork). $6000 is my goal, which may sound like it’s a lot, but when it comes to everything that it takes to put out a quality product, it’s really well under budget. However, I believe I can pull this off with your help, and it will be an amazing album.
I have already recorded about 5 songs, but your financial support will allow me to record the rest of this project quickly and it should be out by July. I take this very seriously, and I don’t waste time in the studio. I am a good steward of the finances that God has blessed me with, and I believe everyone of you will be part of an answer to my prayer of this album being completed.
Thank you in advance for supporting my vision, and trusting me with your heart. I pray my music blesses your heart and feeds your spirit. God Bless, and lets do it!!!
