Need a gift for a gifted musician?
IntraVknows is a radical emcee from Indiana whose primary focus is to elevate the writing and lyrical standards in hip hop. Hip Hop is a cultural pillar for many of us, but the artform has never received the respect it deserves from the music establishment despite the fact that many emcees are brilliant storytellers and writers. Now hip hop is more popular than ever, but unfortunately it has been commercialized and bastardized to such an extent that it is no longer appreciated as having been a form of soul music. The art was once synonymous with activism now it's all about commercialism. Everybody's tryin' to make money, of course, which is easy, but ain't nobody tryin to make a change, not in themselves and definitely not in the world. This is where I come in. I'm doin' this for the love. I'm not lookin' to be signed. I don't need the money. I took care of that. I do need the freedom, however, which has a cost, and I pay everyday, but my mind ain't caged and my soul ain't enslaved. Ya dig? IntraVknows "Vknow" Enjoy. Thanks for the love. The songs I have on soundcloud.com are mostly promotional but at least a third of the proceeds from the songs I release commercially will be donated to various charities such as childhood leukemia, the multiple sclerosis foundation, and special olympics to name a few. Some of the funds will also be used to support a humanitarian/academic scholarship fund that I've already established. Thanks Peace.
