HIP HOP CULTURE PLAYS A HUGE ROLE, IN MY CIGAR JOURNEY

Posted on June 26 2018

 

 

HIP HOP CULTURE PLAYED A VITAL ROLE IN HELPING ME DISCOVER THE ARTIST INSIDE.  EACH OF YOU READING THIS POST HAS AN ARTIST INSIDE YOU TOO.  I BELIEVE THIS TO BE TRUE, AND WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERY PERSON TO SEEK IT OUT.  WHY?  BECAUSE THE FEELING OF CREATING IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!  ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN.

 

HISTORICALLY, THE ELEMENTS OF HIP HOP ARE: B-BOYING, MCING, DJING AND GRAFFITI.  FRANKLY, I SUCK AT ALL OF THESE PRECIOUS ART-FORMS.  HOWEVER, I FEEL THE CULTURE, AS DEEPLY AS ANYONE GIFTED WITH THOSE TALENTS.  THIS CULTURE HAS HAD, AND CONTINUES TO HAVE, A PROFOUND EFFECT ON MY LIFE.  IT EFFECTS ALL OUR OUR LIVES, DAILY.  

 

OVER TIME, I BEGAN TO REALIZE THAT WITHOUT HIP HOP PIONEERS, FOCUSED ON THE BUSINESS SIDE, WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT MANY OF THOSE GREAT ARTISTS WE APPRECIATE TODAY.  SO, I BEGAN TO STUDY THE PEOPLE BEHIND OUR FAVORITE ARTISTS.  FOLKS LIKE:  QUEEN LATIFAHRUSSELL SIMMONS AND RICK RUBIN, J-PRINCE, DIDDY, MASTER P, RZA, JIMMY IOVINESILVIA ROBINSON, KARL KANI, DAME DASH, MISSY ELLIOTTDAYMOND JOHN, MARC EKCO AND TONY DRAPER.

 

TO ME, THIS SUBJECT MATTER BECAME AS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND AS THE LYRICISTS WE SO DEEPLY APPRECIATE, TO THIS DAY.  STUDYING THE STRATEGIES USED BY THESE GREATS, APPLIED TO MY CHOSEN INDUSTRY, GAVE ME A "LIGHT BLUEPRINT" TO USE, IN AN AREA I HAD ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE OR CONTACTS IN.

 

MUCH OF WHAT YOU SEE DISPLAYED ON THIS WEBSITE, CAME TO BE, DUE TO LESSONS I LEARNED FROM THE LATER ADDED ELEMENT, "KNOWLEDGE" OF HIP HOP CULTURE.  THIS IS THE ELEMENT, THE ART-FORM, I GRAVITATE TO IN DISPLAYING MY LOVE FOR THE CULTURE.  FOR ME, HIP HOP CULTURE IS THE FOUNDATIONAL REFERENCE OF MY APPROACH.  I AM CONTRIBUTING TO CIGAR CULTURE, MY WAY.

 

MY SUGGESTION, FOR EACH OF YOU, IS TO IDENTIFY AN AREA OF YOUR LIFE YOU LOVE.  USE IT TO FIND THE ARTIST INSIDE YOU.  WE ARE ALL ARTISTS!  FINDING IT, DEPENDS ON HOW BADLY YOU WANT TO BECOME THE CREATOR YOU SEE INSIDE YOU HEAD.

 

I WISH YOU MUCH SUCCESS AND LOVE, ALONG YOUR PATH!

 

PEACE AND NAMASTE.
