Portrait of TITANBLACK
I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT THIS SONG. FOR, YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT THE COMPETITION IS FIERCE. THEN WHY WOULD YOU STEP UP TO THE PLATE WITH SOMETHING AS WEAK AS THIS? IF IT'S THE BEST YOU CAN DO, I HAVE TO RESPECT THAT: BUT IT'S STRAIGHT WEAK. NO ONLY THAT, BUT IT'S PROMOTING THE VERY THINGS THAT WE ARE TRYING TO WEED OUT OF THE GAME; BUT I'M GOING TO LET YOU FIGURE THAT ONE OUT. ALL I CAN SAY IS: STEP UP YOUR GAME OR GO HOME; AND I WON'T SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN HOT! BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO NEED, TO GO UP AGAINST THE HEAVY-WEIGHTS OF THE INDUSTRY. HIP HOP IS A MOVEMENT; AND WE ARE THE VOICES TO THIS MOVEMENT. THEREFORE, DON'T GIVE YOUR VOICE AWAY FOR CRUMBS, THINKING THAT TALKING ABOUT KILLING EVERYTHING THAT MOVES, IS GOING TO GET YOU A RECORD DEAL: AND EVEN IF IT DOES, YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT YOU ARE HELPING THE INDUSTRY PROMOTE THE VERY THING THAT KILLING OFF AND INCARCERATING MILLIONS OF OUR YOUTH; AND THAT'S STUPIDITY. THE MARK OF THE GENIUS IS ONE WHO HAS THE HEART ENOUGH TO GO AGAINST THE GRAIN; AND ACTUALLY BE HIMSELF, NOT CARING IF PEOPLE THINK HE OR SHE IS A WEIRDO. IN THIS CATAGORY I HAVE A TRACK CALLED THE "CITY OF LOS ANGELS", WHICH TELL ABOUT THE PROBLEMS OF OUR PEOPLE ON THE STREETS OF L.A.(WHERE I AM ORIGINALLY FROM). IT TELLS ABOUT YOU CAN KILL OR BE KILLED ALONG WITH THE REPERCUSSIONS OF IT ALL. FOR, WE CAN'T HAVE OUR YOUTH THINKING THAT IS COOL TO KILL AND GO TO PRISON: BECAUSE, WHEN IT'S ALL SAID AND DONE AND THE SMOKE CLEARS, IT BIGGER THAN HIP HOP IN THE EYE'S OF THE OPPRESSOR. THE ONE'S WHO ARE LOOKING FROM THE OUTSIDE INTO OUR WORLD(GHETTO), AND STUDYING US, LIKE WE ARE SCIENCE PROJECTS. SETTING UP CONDITIONS, TO THE POINT WHERE WE ARE FORCED TO ACT LIKE SAVAGES. IF YOU WENT TO L.A., YOU WOULD FIND OUT THAT MOST GANG-MEMBERS ARE TRYING TO GET INTO RELIGION(ISLAM OR CHRISTIANITY), AND THIS IS BECAUSE SO MANY OF OUR SOLDIERS AND WARRIORS HAVE AND ARE DROPPING LIKE FLIES; AND WHEN YOU EVERY WEEKEND CONSIST OF GOING TO FUNERALS YOUR PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE STARTS TO CHANGE. THEREFORE, LET'S NOT CONFIRM THEIR STEREO-TYPES ABOUT US. LET'S SHOCK THE WORLD BY TAKING HIP HOP BACK TO IT'S TRUEST ESSENCE, WITHIN IT'S ORIGINAL FORM. STAND UP FOR SOMETHING, AND YOU WON'T FALL FOR JUST ANYTHING. SO, WE MUST AT LEAST TRY TO STAND UP AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR YOUTH; BECAUSE RIGHT NOW THEY HAVE NO-ONE TO REALLY LOOK UP TO; AND THIS IS WHAT GIVES THEM THE "F#@K THE WORLD" MENTALITY. AND IF WE DO THIS HIP HOP WILL LIVE FOR EVER!
