The future f hip hop is in or hands my friend. My friend is a hip hop artist named Yannik, hes doing pretty well and all his lyrics are to do with the elite and what they do.
I have started a small company called LeedsIsLive - basically still on the table, but when completed we will be going round schools, colleges, youth centers and near abouts anywhere we can to try let them see what commercial music is doing to youths attitudes.
We'll be doing thing like showing lyrics of Katy Perry's, Rhiana and all them big commercial names and askign what positive message can be brought out of any of them lyrics and if they can see that listening to that garbage would influence anything they do. Then we would go onto showing them Lyrics from AKALA, Immortal Technique, Jessy J, Pink, Lowkey, Lupe Fiasco etc and ask them to find something positive, and whether the lyrics have influenced them to think different. Then hopefully we would go onto why we need to stop listening to music thats chucked down our throats - the likes of Rhaiana - how she will grind on a man and sleep with anybody, or like Katy perry who will kiss a girl and like it, or like 50cent who will shoot a niga and take all his money etc. Hopefully after the hour we have, we will have shown them that music has a major part of how they live their youth, and that they can change their own environment. Rant over.
Keep up the good work, never change your game - people will only be listening to the likes of you pretty soon.
