Breath taking lyrics.. Bob Dylan - Make you feel my love

not to many songs make the world around me stop but this guy has those lyrics that hit straight to the soul. Amazing.. True Musical Genius:

Make You Feel My Love

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
There's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin' sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love

Current moves this year.. For the People not the industry

So we are seeing a phenomenon in the music industry right now. A lot of it may be because of the current state of deep recession that our country is in but more than ever right now BULLSHIT just isn't flying. When I say that I mean the industry can force feed us acts that we don't want to hear, get them to the top of the charts, but then they sell 30,000 first week. I don't know if we've ever seen it like this before. The only artists really selling are those with an already established fan base or those that are pretty legit music wise. I am not mad at it right now but the thing I don't get is why does the industry still chase singles when it seems obvious when someone will or will not go to the store for something?? It seems like an artist with potential and longevity is much more wise of an investment than the ringtone artist.. I don't know.. Just thinking out loud.. So I am coming out of the holidays in between studio spaces and finally am seeing stuff start to pan together.. I should be in a new spot really soon working around a great group of people. I am also very excited because I might finally be starting to get to the place where I can get a lot of talented young musicians I know involved in what I am doing. Ending last year I was really starting to feel like the vibe in Atlanta is stagnant and over saturated. Honestly, it was the first time I've ever said that in my whole life(being the true ATLIEN that I am), but since the top of this year I've started seeing the stagnation as an opportunity for some of us to shake this shit up! I carry with myself a moral obligation with music. I believe that as you grow and get more successful and influential you have a moral responsibility if you are a true musician to follow what you believe in creatively. Although there are some producers that maintain that passion in their music once they get big, most now a days end up falling comfortable in the system and let the money control them. I don't believe there is anything wrong with making a lot of money with music. I love to see musicians get money but once you get the money you should be the one controlling it not letting it control you. Kanye is a producer that definitely doesn't let it control him. He can have anything he wants money wise but still maintain his artistry at the same time. He is what we should all aspire to be. Not like him or sound like him but give back like him. As cocky or as arrogant as he may be he does more than most of these more humble producers that will sell their souls on a record for a dollar. And that is my problem with Atlanta. I feel like we have some of the most talented producers and writers in the game right now.. shit, they are the most commercially successful but I don't think most (not all) are helping the state of music right now. They are regurgitating the same material to the point where it isn't just someone's personal sound it is a sound, a formula, and basically a factory like approach to something that has the potential to be so pure and powerful. Anyway, my only goal besides dropping several classic albums is to better music and not just by making it higher quality but by helping others get involved that have talent and dedication, making people aware of the classics, and always fighting for what I believe in is right.

Damn another leaked record Yung Joc - Poppin (tonight) produced by b jabr

damn this record isn't mastered or anything but it is out there now so go ahead and spread it around and make it a single!!


Pharrell getting philosophical

I really fuck with Pharrell.. The Neptunes were the first producers that inspired me to produce when I was in highschool and at the time they really made me believe that radio pop music CAN be innovative. They maintain elements of the classics and a strong appreciation for live music and sounds. On top of that, Pharrell and Chad seem like some of the coolest dudes in the industry. They have never been on that cock diesel ego status but just always have been lovers of music and true appreciators of art.
