the 🔑is to create
- the Product -
HIP HOP is WRITTEN it is FREESTYLED, it can be inspired by a Girl, or the streets...we are products of our environments. Our songs are products of us. The process of creating a song can happen in the studio or on the bus. You might become inspired at a 9-5 job or on the corners hustlin'.... Whatever you do, how ever the feeling becomes you to create, just remember one thing, it is all about the energy in the RECORD. It is about the presentation, if you don't like the song , chances are no one will. Stay focused and keep pushing, QUALITY is more important than QUANTITY remember that.
“If skills sold, truth be told, I’d probably be lyrically, Talib Kweli/ Truthfully I wanna rhyme like Common Sense/ But I did five mill’ I ain’t been rhymin like Common since.” – Jay-z
Lacing up-tempo tracks with social commentary, Chuck D, Professor Griff, Terminator X, Flavor Flav, and Bill Stephenney collectively known as Public Enemy, helped introduce revolution-on-wax with their debut, Yo! Bum Rush The Show. But it wasn't until the explosive follow-up, It Takes A Nation of Millions... that hip-hop fans started to grasp the concept of a socially conscious, hardcore sound. Chuck challenged everything that challenged the upliftment of black people: police brutality, racial profiling, stereotypes, negligence, etc. A definitive hip-hop essential by one of the greatest groups of all time.
