WELCOME

to my Patreon page! Thanks to my Patrons and VIPs, you can buy parts of my album each month. So instead of waiting for the mainstream to make one of my songs a hit, YOU get to see me release verses every week, and decide for YOURSELF if my Rap verses should be considered as valuable as the verses in your book store's Poetry section...

About my lyrics:

You can play these Poetic Rap Verses, even at your job, cause they never have curses. I make the kind of music I wanted to hear when I was living in poverty, lacking a positive role model. I know hearing a good song is like talking to a mentor who loves you. I make the music I wanted to hear when I was still in college, separated from intelligent images of my people and culture. I make the music I wanted to hear when I was in an office where coworkers were clueless about the positive value of HipHop. I make the music I wanted to hear when I was driving my children to school, hoping to start their day with confidence and compassion, as a loving parent does!

WHY

I write and record so you can wake up to positive messages, energize your space, and start the day with empowering lyrics your coworkers, family, and friends ask you to turn up, instead of turn off.

The music that fills your car, workplace, and home catches people's attention, just like art framed on your walls, except... we can't look away from music. My songs help you set the tone, so those around you are surrounded by the soulful sounds of positive music and conscious lyrics.

If you're tired of arguing with those who don't know Hip-Hop's true potential, it's time to expose them to bars that put the spotlight on WHO YOU ARE, instead of on what you bought! All of the verses are clean, so you don't have to turn them off around curious kids or critical clients. Please become a patron today. Your support helps me reach people in need of hearing positive rap lyrics, now.

WHO I AM

I've been featured in the NY Times and NPR, lectured at Yale, rocked the International Hip-Hop Fest, hit #2 on the Indie Hip-Hop Top 40 radio chart, and am a 2017 State Slam Poetry finalist. I'm also a freestyle rap champion, event host, inspirational keynote speaker, and socially conscious business advertiser (My latest commission raised awareness of a revolutionary way to upgrade solar power sourcing, resulting in praise from 50 Cent, XXL, Essence, and others.)... But I'm not a pop music artist - so I'm indebted to the  patronage and VIP membership of real people like YOU to keep this Positive RapOetry movement growing!

Tell me more...

Okay, I've been recognized by President Obama's Champions of Change and featured in the New York Times for developing programs that use Hip-Hop as a positive tool of engagement to erode stereotypes, deepen dialogue, and foster the expression of difficult, emotional thoughts in a healthy, safe, and positive way.

I'm currently a 2017 statewide poetry Slam Finalist, as well as a freestyle champion, MC, host, visiting college lecturer, stage diver, and crowd surfer! I've lectured\t Yale University, Trinity College, and several other institutions of higher learning.


Recently became a 2017 Statewide Poetry SLAM Finalist


Crowd surfing at the International Hip-Hop Festival

I was discovered on the NYC Hip-Hop scene by  Billboard Charting MC, Talib Kweli, who booked me for repeat performances in Brooklyn. That led to being booked by award winning Poet, Jessica Care Moore, who mentored me until I was offered a production deal by Def Jam, which I turned down to go to college (my father passed away, and his generation struggled for equal access to education).

Ironically after Jay-Z stepped down from being Def Jam President, he signed an artist named J Cole to his new label Roc Nation, and I recorded an underground classic album with J Cole's engineer, Juro Mez Davis, produced by Royce Music Group's Young Cee. Our record, "Manhattan Night" rose to #2 and #3 on the Indie Hip-Hop Top 40 radio charts, and #1 on the Reverb Nation regional chart.

Now

With your help, I'm releasing my first solo album, "Self Control", in 2018. Not only is this the first solo album, it also semi-autobiographically describes the struggles many creative people go through to realize their True Purpose. From total poverty, shame, and confusion; to accountability, trustworthiness, and focus, each track sees the protagonist overcome his own defeatist mindset in a journey of increasing Self Control.

Even though it's a fictional Hip-Hop story, based on challenges I've confronted in real life, the lyrics are full of conscious insight for parents who want to enjoy authentic bangin' beats and liquid lyrics, without exposing their seeds to the vulgarity and stupidity of Hip Pop... Give them the soulful, powerful gift of real, conscious Hip-Hop verses.

Written & Performed by Self Suffice the RapOet
Produced & Arranged by King Solomon of Alien Religion
Recorded, Mixed, & Mastered by Ghazi G Dot O
