Why are you here???

It’s a simple question that has many complex answers. Some people are here just for the entertainment. Some just like the beats. Others come for the display of skills from the emcees and dj’s. While others have no real idea what is really going on and are only here to follow trends. So I ask you….

WHY ARE YOU HERE?

I grew up in El Paso Texas a place on the map that is sectioned off and isolated from the rest of the country. A place that is over two thousand miles from the birthplace of Hip Hop and the everyday struggle that gave birth to a new and exciting culture. Yet because of the circumstances of the place I’m from I still feel a deep connection with the art form.

A culture and artform that has arisen from poverty and oppression. Many people now view hip hop as just rap music ignoring the true original four elements of what was there in the beginning. For those that don’t know or care to remember those four elements that came together to forge the beginning are the Emcee. The DJ. The Graffiti artist. And the Break dancer (bboy).

These four elements came together as one to provide outlets for boredom, expression, and the delivering of a message. Kids would take over the parks and HipHop to survive. For many of them it was the most important thing they had in their lives.

So pretty much to answer my own question, why am I here? I’m here because Hip Hop is my survival method in a world that is designed against the common man. Its a tool that I use prominently in the battle against tyranny and oppression.

In other words I am here for “the message.”

If you make music without heartfelt feelings and emotions, if your not speaking up and standing up for those who can’t for themselves then what’s the point? When hip hop was in its infant stages most didn’t understand the impact it could have. Most don’t understand it to be the beginning of a revolution.

A revolution that we must fight for change. A revolution that must lead to equality and justice. So ask yourself again, why are you here. Is it just to be entertained? Or are you only here to take away from the endgame.

Having said all that I figured that I’d leave you with a new track called:

PRIME INCENTIVE

BY

SUPREME ALLAH MAGNETIC FT. CRUX MOTTOLO WITH PRODUCTION FROM ANONYMUS BEATS.

As u listen to the track think to yourself what message is being conveyed and what is actually being delivered.

  1. I don’t know who or if it’s been said , but I like to say there is a 5th element, KNOWLEDGE!! I’m sure I have heard that said before , but it’s always stuck with me . I’m hear cause at 7 year’s old my Bboy , and graph writer brother left a case of tapes . In there was the stuff that got me hooked for what I know will be my life time . 31 years , and have never stopped . Love watching this art form evolve, and have a theory it’s entering a exciting period , coming from what some would say is a dark age.
