Young Brotha Tray

Only post I’m making about the Trayvon situation. The young brotha didn’t have to die. End of story.

There is audio from the 911 call where they specifically told Zimmerman to stay away from the kid; they will handle it from there. It could have ended there. He took it upon himself to continue following him. Now if this dude ran up on him and Trayvon felt the need to react, then isn’t that self defense? But then Zimmerman felt the need to shoot and kill him. He was specifically told to leave the situation alone. But he didn’t. You kill someone, you serve time. Yet he’s off.

They can try to corrupt the system and this world, but ultimately we all have to face God. There’s no avoiding that. No money in the world can change your fate.

I wrote and recorded a song when the killing occurred.

Listen to the song and read what I wrote about it back then:

With this particular series, I wanted to talk about the Trayvon Martin situation. I’ve always been fueled to write when certain situations of injustice occur, I just never make it a point to make it so straight forward. The day after the Oscar Grant shooting, I wrote the intro to The Manifesto EP. From the lyrics I penned to the angst in my voice, the whole intro was fueled by the incident. I sometimes feel that too many artist discredit the actual incident by somewhat capitalizing on a current event; but the artist in me also understands that we have the responsibility to be the voice of the people. Some of the greatest music came from a dark place, but it gave a sense of hope and power. I want to give myself that opportunity to make music like that. I’m not going to stop myself from creating just because I feel some artist may be doing it for the wrong reasons, and I don’t want to be seen in the same light by others. Yet, who am I to judge from what place other artists art came from? Nobody. So I did what I’ve always done; followed my instinct and made the music I wanted to create. This is a genuine piece on my behalf. And I hope you receive it as just that.

It’s Been One Helluva Year … 2012

2012 was personally one of my toughest years in life. I went through a lot, but thankfully learned a great deal. I am grateful for the lessons which have prepared me for what’s ahead. I appreciate those who have helped me mentally and spiritually; you all have made a big change in who I am becoming. My art is created by what I live, and this year I lived a lot. The very good and the very bad. Regardless, I am grateful for it all and plan on executing these teachings, not only in 2013, but from here on out.

For the past couple of years I do a quick recap of what my year was like musically and share it with all my people.

This year we continue tradition.

This is just an overview, there’s a lot of details and moments I can’t capture, but I’ll try my best to go through what went down in 2012.

We started off the year where we left off 2011, which was a video recap of my 2011 release part for Life That I Chose.

1. We released Life That I Chose at the end of 2011 and had a great release party at Akin which was captured by my homie Sense Hernandez.

2. DJ Scend, Slot-A and I had a dope interview over at Chicago’s very own The Hip-Hop Project radio show in regards to the Life That I Chose EP.

You can catch the interview interview by CLICKING HERE.

3. We also started off the year with a very dope show at Double Door as we opened up for Pharoah Monch. Below you can catch some footage of us doing what we do.

NEW MUSIC: Scheme – The Sun Is Out (produced by Analyst)

Update: Scheme x Analyst EP & The Sun Is Out NOW AVAILABLE on iTunes

There’s Nothing like Summer Time Chi.

A couple of days ago we had a taste of Summer in Chicago which sparked the creative process for this joint. SRNC producer Analyst had released this beat as his 40th beat in his “40 Beats In 40 Days” Series and Scheme was quick to get dibs on it. A couple of hours later, The Sun Is Out was written and recorded.

This is the first joint let lose from an upcoming EP Scheme & The Analyst are working on. The project is still in the early stages, but expect some great music to come from it. This here is the first taste. Check it out below.
