Bye Bye 2012....What's Good 2013
This year has really had it's Ups & Downs. We witnessed history & tragedy. Madness ran amuck through the our city & our country. Somewhere, we as the people, have found comfort and peace within the music. As always, music creates the soundtrack for our lives. Good or bad, you can find common peace with music. So for the year of 2012, we were able to witness what may as well be a future icon of this generation in Kendrick Lamar. 3 Stacks gave us one of the most memorable verses (and possibly a insight on the future of Outkast) this year. As for my city & state, I've been able to see growth. It's amazing to see what the climate of Hip-Hop & R&B has emerge into today. Acts like Big K.R.I.T., 7even Thirty, 5th Child, Hollywood Luck, Slimm Pusha, Kerry Thomas & Calico Panache has given us a glimpse of what we can do in Mississippi. Producer Got Koke making big with major placements with major players (Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, & Meek Mill do the research). There are so many artists & producers that I have come encountered with in the past year. Which makes me believe that 2013 will be a great year for Mississippi!!! In conclusion, I challenge every artist & producer to push the envelope. Don't compromise and stay true to you!!! The stage is set for us to make our mark. What you choose to do is all up to you!!! Thank God for supporters like Q Bobby who is an avid supporter of everything in City of Jackson!!! (We all Thank You) Much Love to Charlie Braxton, theLSHERIEalert, & The OG Kamikaze aka Mr. Franklin for helping artists find a platform. We all play apart in helping us grow. We need no jealousy nor animosity towards each other. We our behind because we hold each other back. So for 2013, let's make great music, support each other, & give em' no choice but to shine the light on us!! We have that power!!! Happy New Year!! Peace & Love!!
