(Patreon video explaining everything coming really soon but until then):

I come from a state that thinks access
is a casino-chip reserved only for the most privileged

I come from a culture where content is king 
meanwhile a 1000 middleman dictate your castle for you

I come from a job where passion is high
but hours are low & so ideas can't afford the rent

It gets tired. You either think this is the way it has to be, or you look for another way out
And as my grandfather used to say
I done  woke up now, I done  come to

I come to flip the table, jack the chips
redefine what access can mean for us

I come to build my own castle outside 
the predetermined walls, make my own nation

I come to get free on my own
terms - fxck the rent

If you're down for that as well, then welcome potential CHILLUMINATI
You're Invited.

My name is Chace Morris // Mic Write. I am a poet/emcee/performer/teaching artist from Detroit. And I'm asking for a monthly investment of whatever comfortably fits your budget ($1/$5/$10/$30) & in exchange I will give you no less than an army of ohmygod coolness & a level of access to it that no one besides your fellow CHILLUMINATI will have.

What is Patreon? Think Kickstarter meets Spotify- where instead of supporting just one project, you can support the artist over an extended period of time & in return get laced with rare based goodies.  AND it allows you to adjust your investment higher or lower at ANY time.

At this point you may be saying "Okay...sounds nice enough. But what kinda quality are we talking here?"- which is fair because we've all had our share of mixtapes & such we've turned into coasters or Post-It notes. Totally understandable. Check the technique.

The Resume:
  • 2016 Alain Locke Award Recipient
  • 2015 Knight Arts Challenge Winner
  • 2013 Kresge Literary Fellow
  • 2-time Rustbelt Slam Midwest Champion
  • 2010 Detroit slam champion
  • nominated for a Pushcart Poetry Prize (Loaded - 2015)
  • nominated for Best Of The Net anthology (Blast/oma - 2015)
  • featured performer at TedXDetroit last year
  • Work featured on Muzzle & Radius Poetry Journals, NPR, Mother Jones, The Griot, Smoking Section, Fashionably Early, & more

To see just how deep the rabbit hole goes, I encourage you to red pill into this fly shxt.
I am very very amped over the potential of what we can accomplish together.
Hope to see you in the feed-

THE CHILLUMINATI

CHILLUMINATI- n. - secret society of the patient but potent visionaries laying sleeper-cell among us- composed largely of creators, thinkers, organizers, avid gamers, blerds, Saiyans, Cam Newton, Beyonce' & the video for Formation, Kendrick Lamar's 2016 Grammy performance, Ryan Coogler, Adonis Creed, good sweet tea, Saturdays - and hopefully you

This levels inducts you into the All Seeing Chill, granting you access to not only 1st looks at new content, but also super-exclusive material that only you & fellow members will ever have access to- increasing your ability to stunt on your friends and enemies by 175%.

QWERTY-THIRTY

For those willing to get deeper into The Code. This level grants you access to all previous awards + a really really cool quarterly perk I like to call RAM (Random Accessed Memories). Think Birchbox- except instead of beauty products you get hyper-rare items from not only me, but other artist friends in my collective such as secret EPs, handwritten lyrics/notes, limited edition merch & Detroit-positive gems to enhance your steez. To sweeten the deal- this also grants you free access into every show me & squad throw this year (including the summer festival we're planning for August)

CODEBREAKER

The motherlode of support- to be forever cemented in the gentle fabric of history!

To celebrate this monument of generosity & belief in what I aim to bring- you will receive ALL of the previous rewards (count 'em, ALL) in addition to a 2-hour private E-performance/workshop for you & 7 friends of your choosing this year! This can manifest however you want: live unplugged musical performance & Q/A? Yep. Live YCWM band performance & Q&A? Sure! Online poetry workshop & reading where we can all vibe? Absolutely. This is your investment, your time, so we'll communicate to tailor the experience as best we can & supply you with something truly individualized & special!
Goals
$1 of $1,500 per month
FIRST GOAL:  Operation Complete My Knight Arts Challenge:

You're Coming With Me is a response to what is happening within my city- Detroit- & many others like it. It is poetry, Hip-Hop, live music & jam session. It is a counterpunch from feeling as if I & the city I've come to know/love is being attacked/compromised/erased.

So far I've privately raised $2200 of my $7500 goal for YCWM.  Very bangerang. I am now enlisting help from you- the CHILLUMINATI - to finish what I've started. $2500/month for the next two months allows me to complete my goal by summer so I can freak the show all the way out, bring it all to you in the form a travelling performance series, provide you with super exclusive merch & produce a limited edition vinyl of the live recordings (to be released this fall/winter)!


[Other] Dope Projects Your Support  Will Directly Affect:
  • finally finishing my EP of new music #C0D3R3D
  • finishing a trilogy of visuals for my songs HUDS, Pledge Of Allegiance, & Wait/Weight
  • attending the Callaloo Writing Workshop at Brown University this summer
  • increase in quality & frequency of new/exclusive music & merch

Dope Rewards You Get In Return (FULL REWARDS LIST BELOW):
  • 1st dibs on new singles & videos
  • Super-super exclusive jams for Patrons only
  • limited edition membership shirt upon entry into The Chilluminati
  • Quarterly subscription boxes of rare items [RAM] from me & other artist friends
  • Free entry into all of the self-produced shows this year

I am deadass about building
One Nation Under Squad.
I know we can do some ill things together

And who do I mean by "we" you ask? Well...
