Yo! How have y’all been? I hope all is well. As I get back into the swing of things and back to business, I want to to talk about some of the things that have happened, while I been on hiatus. One thing that was noticed was another “Behind The Rhyme” brand. This all happened in 2017 and featured Kool Moe Dee as the creator/curator of the content. His lead content piece was a conversation with Chuck D. It’s dope and I didn’t even watch all of it yet. It reminded me of the conversation I had with Kwame a few years ago.
First, I want to say the fact that I had the same idea as hip-hop pioneer is super dope! Let’s me know that this really is something special and I really need to keep on with this and never stop. That fact that I was 5 years ahead of his idea was even better!
With me going through a little spell of anxiety and uncertainty I had to unplug before I did something that I regret. I almost sold BTR. That’s how done I thought I was. However, a conversation just yesterday, let me know that I got a lot more to do and I can’t kill off what I’ve created. I got 5 solid years in this. I’m not giving up.
To stay on topic, I want to make it clear that I would love to connect and create with Kool Moe Dee under the Behind The Rhyme Brand name. I think it’s a great opportunity for two black men who love and grew up in this culture to get together and do something special. I made this platform to be a fan as well as a voice of the culture. I believe Kool Moe Dee had that on his mind as well when he first picked up the mic. I want to come in peace, show respect as well as love as I attempt to reach out and create with someone who’s very much apart of my childhood and hip-hop nurturing.
I’ve reached out on on IG and will try on YouTube as well unless I find an email. I may even post the Chuck D conversation here. Just know on my end there is no smoke, malice or beef on that situation. I’ll chalk it up to great minds thinking alike. Hopefully, great minds can work together in 2019. In fact, it’s more of a wake up call that still enough people do not know about Behind The Rhyme and what it represents. So it’s time to go to work! Shout to Kool Moe Dee!
