Calling all Hip-Hopper’s,
We, meaning those of us that occupy ghettos, slums, villages, inner cities, and small towns gathered in groups with similar faces currently live in an illusion in which the mystique of being an “EMCEE” is exaggerated by fairy tales of after tax take home and net worth that confuses hood rich with future generations sustained by accumulated wealth not even allowed in a style of music that seldom sees a 20 year career and no one performs as long as the Rolling Stones or Aerosmith, not even Run DMC because “Rap Music” is a young mans “game”!
Game, a perfect name and a shame because that is what it has become.
Something2Say Communications in Association with S R Junior Period Publishing – ASCAP / IQ Productions, Kitchen Radio, and the Universal Zulu Nation Present Samssun Featuring AyCE International in what will soon be known as a Classic Underground independent “True-school” album that you owe it to yourself to have in your collection entitled “Community Service”! With Darren Quinlan working the boards and many of the instruments and cameo’s by skillful emcees, singers, and poets like the Darksyde Poets, Darlene De Loney, Amén Patron, AtLas, Janet DeJesus, Christopher Addison, Jesaka Sekmet Auset aka Saylove, MC K~Swift, Glorious Quan, Black U.N., O-man, and even the artists’ wife and mother who allow us to peek threw the personal windows of his body of work in order to truly appreciate the culmination of one Ahki’s effort to bring the past to the present and prove “all good things come back around truly make this a humble and honest experience.
Why Community Service? Because currently it is being denied and its methods of functioning forgotten! The people are no longer receiving material that they can relate too and are being force fed synthetic materialism demanding we keep up with the Jones’ rather than notices that the Jones’ are no longer among us! We have forgotten that for a community to function and flourish, each one is to teach one, and we are to barter to help grow both what we have and that which we intend to have we must cultivate in unison! There is a lot of good Hip-Hop out there on the underground, just check shows like Zulu Radio, Zulu Tribe Radio, Offthecorner.net, Visual Caffeine, Zulu Beats, and so many others! To find… you must first seek! Where better than the first family of Hip-Hop? This artist does indeed carry on the Zulu Legacy that of Afrika Bambaataa, Red Alert, the Jungle Brothers, ATCQ, etc and waves the Red, Black, and Green Flag high!
It is often said by “fans” of rap music, “Hip-hop is dying, there is nothing out there! People between the ages 35 to 40 or better have nothing current to listen to!” Unfortunately many rappers DO refuse to grow up, but that is one of the many things that sets them apart from Emcees. Emcees are world reporters, truth spreaders, and artist rather than flavors of the month motivated by 15 minutes of fame! The pleasant thing in discovering Samssun Featuring AyCE International (A young Creative Entrepreneur), both of these men are over 35 and comprehend the mechanics of the industry, the art form, the culture, and their demographic. Their target audience is the 1,000,000 or more with similar taste and a hunger for a more pure “Hip-Hop sound” (break beats, samples, loops, snares, live bass-lines, live instruments, less hand claps)! I have had the privilege of bumping this missing link master piece of 20 songs and truly recommend it for your listening pleasure! This is some good stuff! Pick it up as soon as its available in Early 2014, peace!
