THANK YOU!

Before I beg for your money… let me start off by saying how thankful i am for what’s happened so far. the crazy shit i’ve seen and done, all the people famous and not that i’ve met, all the nerds, all the juggalos, all the hackers, all the burn outs, and neck beards, all the nerdcore rappers. i love all of these people. mc chris started as a party trick in college that helped me survive the night. hip hop bragging gave me confidence when i was feeling alone in a big city, feeling suicidal.

in the beginning, i wanted to just say my name a lot over beats that sampled classic rock. i came up around punk rockers who taught me everything about being a band, having fans, writing songs, touring, merch, everything. later on, i somehow got my dream job of working at cartoon network. it turned out to be an amazing opportunity that introduced me to an entire generation. we met back in 2001 and since then there have been countless cartoons, albums, and live shows.

it’s been an amazing experience, one that’s lasted longer than some of my favorite bands and that’s all thanks to a couple of things. im not in a band so i never had to break up. i’m not on a label so i never got dropped. and my fans. i’ve been supported by my fans for almost twenty years. that’s amazing. and they keep wanting more albums, more skits, more videos, more mc. and to think there was a time when i was “mc chris” just to survive parties in college.

so much has changed. so many of my fans have grown up. so many have come to the edge and they stayed w us bc of the music. so many folks have struggled, w war and cynicism always in the background of their adolescence. and mc chris music has been there for them, a soundtrack to fight back the dark thoughts. the timeline we are currently on has only gotten darker for many and mc chris music is more important than ever.

there’s always been this untapped potential. what if mc had more time to focus on the cartoon? what if mc worried less month to month? or night to night? what if mc felt like charging forward instead of closing up? you can help.

WHY PATREON MAKES THE BEST SENSE RIGHT NOW.

after much reluctance, i see how patreon is the key to keeping the mc chris experience as dependable as ever. keeping the albums, the songs, the tours, the skits, all of it going. and if things go well, we could evolve the entire experience and shoot for bigger things like a music video, a band, a comic, a book, a cartoon. this literally could go anywhere. your contributions would help me pay my bills. and it would help me lose money less when i make music. maybe even make a profit.

i hate to get real here but i’m in 60K in debt. 30 is personal and 30 is business debt. most of that business debt is a 20K tax payment from last year. the rest went into making foes, campground and the new marvel album. i lost my booking agent and didnt get to headline my own tour in 2017. so nothing got paid off as usual. and things were getting complex at home.

my wife was diagnosed with bi-polar last fall. her hospital stay, dr. fees, along w uncontrolled spending (a sympton of the illness) has resulted in a huge debt. i’m ok w chipping away at all of it for the rest of my life, but american express has sold my debt to a collector that wants 15K by end of summer or we go to court. not good. 

so not only do we have to survive we have to avoid being punished for surviving. i’m holding a huge garage/ebay sale and selling as many possesions as i can part w. im sure a gofundme of some sort will pop up. we are doing our best to budget and cut back and my wife is no longer spending like before, thanks to the right meds, she’s doing much better. you can see how all of this would be stressful. having some monthly supporters will bring much needed sunshine on the situtation.

your support would not only help with bills and medical expense but help me make sure everyone is getting paid. I have a huge team of people that invoice me and right now everyone has taken a pay cut. I have a web guy, a producer, a booking agent, a pr firm, a merch company, and an assistant that works for free. i'd love for her to have a salary. id like to pay the merch company what i owe them, or the booking agent. your contributions will help me settle up. and your support will also help w gear expenses, maybe better gear, better mics, better headphones, better mic stands. maybe even instruments and the latest versions of audio programs. we’ve always been barebones in a bedroom, and I'd like to see what happens if we upgrade. i’m learning more and more about sound and would love to give u the best sound i can. ur help would also go towards rehearsal spaces, studio spaces, travel expenses and this all makes for better music, the core of the mc chris experience.

IS THIS RIGHT FOR YOU?

now i know this is all pretty intense but i do not want you to feel obligated to contribute. i’ve always been for file sharing and the music getting out there by any means because i truly believe it enriches the lives of those that listen. i want everyone to hear it. u shouldn’t have to pay for it if you can’t. i always have said support me when u can. and that goes for this as well. i know many of you have it much harder than me so again don’t feel obligated or stressed out by this.

but if u r so down w mc and have been for a long time and you want a way to lock in more mc chris stuff and help mc grow and evolve faster, then this is a great way to contribute.

there are so many things i want to do. so many albums i want to make. so many new things i want to try. i’ve already started livecasting, doing movie reviews on youtube and experimenting w twitch. i want to do a podcast, a comic, a cartoon, a lyrics book. i also still want to make tv and movies. i have concepts for apps, video games and even a hologram live show. we could take mc chris to amazing places.

and if you want to be more practical, how about more music, faster? there wont be new songs here. but you will help me keep making songs for everybody for years to come and at a faster rate. and that’s cool.

and of course here come the rewards. we’re gonna do it up right.
