Don’t be a Victim..


This past Tuesday Dec 1st, 2009 was world AIDS day, anyone who knows me or is somewhat familiar with my work knows that I am a HUGE advocate for HIV/AIDS awareness. I’ve been involved in many projects related to that topic such as a play that I wrote What Comes Around Goes Around which was featured on an online radio show was even about to hit a real stage (that part is still on hold) I’ve also written several short stories and poems on the topic. Well anyways I’ve always wanted to direct a photoshoot of some sort so in the summer of ’09 I decided to start a photo shoot called Don’t be a Victim to bring more awareness to HIV/AIDS. The response I got from people who wanted to be involved was overwhelming and great! Currently I am still taking pictures but hope to release this collection soon in some form whether that be via a myspace/facebook page, blog/site or what have you (not sure exactly what I want to do with it yet) but I am open to suggestions so if you have any ideas please let me know in the comments 🙂 on a side note I’m currently involved in another project dealing with HIV/AIDS but I’ll give you more info on that when the time comes I promise 🙂 below are a few sneak peak shots from the Don’t be a Victim collection please tell me what you think your feedback is needed! thanks

Preformances: Now Thats How You Really Let The Beat Build!!!

Its rare when I can watch a whole music video and love everything about it, but thats exactly what happened when I first saw this clip. The video is by Nyle and the song is his own version of Lil Wayne’s song “Let the beat build.” What I love most about the video was how they used live singers and a live band to recreate the beat instead of using Wayne’s instrumental. Everyone on the video brought their A game especially the artist himself Nyle who is an up and coming singer from the NYC area. I think this is one of those tracks that everyone can enjoy even if you dont listen to rap/hip-hop and although some stans out there may try to disagree Nyle’s version gives Wayne’s a run for his money. But don’t just take my word for it peep the video below and let me know what you think. Also if you know of any live preformances or music videos you enjoy please email them to me at spokenrap@gmail.com
