i’ve always felt that i was meant for so much more, among my peers
i would speak on the world’s problems but get called crazy because “black people didn’t do that”
, i’ve always wanted to change the world & it’s been like this for as long as i can remember. i started writing raps young but got serious about it in 7th grade when i started writing poetry for a class project (a few people thought i was actually good), fast forward to 2007 & my lyrics got deeper, jump ahead to 2009-10 & i was at the lowest point in my life, so i wrote everything that was in my head & it saved me from going down a bad road somehow; i felt the need to share my stories /art with the world. whether it’s with pen or a lens, over a beat or spoken word, my artistry speaks. artists have a duty to the world not to be selfish with their gifts because the world needs artists to force truths upon them when they’re in bed with lies, to inject medicine when they’re high on the ills of the world & comfort them when that same world gets too much to bear. i have a severe hatred hatred for normalcy & the mundane & get so tired of the
“you already know who it is, “it’s ya boy Lil Gwap Getta 12 killa, reppin -Murda Yo Whole Block, Sell Crack to the Kids, Shake Yo Ass Bitch- records, MYWBSCKSYAB its a movement!!!”
noise that pollutes people minds & does absolutely NOTHING to progression the art that is rap or do anything good in the world.
indieTHI3VES™ was created because i got tired of begging people to let me get on a song, record something or listen to what i had to say, & in the rare instance that they did listen they didn’t understand it because i refuse to make dumb, unintelligible noise. being a tech kid & child of the digital age, i knew creating a digital presence that could & would transform into a real force for mental elevation would not be hard,only tedious. coming up i can remember having some type of recorder with me all the time, whether it was a camera or a voice recorder or a notepad…i wanted to hold memories forever because i don’t have too many of them that are worth holding onto. in school i’m a Mass Communications major learning how to more effectively tell stories because i believe the stories & art of indieTHI3VES™ can & will change the world. if the mass media can promote violence, death destruction, idiocracy & hard drug lifestyle’s (whether you want to admit it or not, the media controls everything you see, hear, touch, think and ultimately feel) maybe just maybe indieTHI3VES™ can get in there & bring light to the darkness showing people that even though the world ain’t so beautiful all the time,
the beauty that is still here is immeasurable & has power in the vibrations of LOVE, BEAUTY & ART
