MOTIVATION MONDAY: TEE SWAIN

TEE SWAIN 1

A Lyricists main focus is to illustrate a message in their lyrics. Rap lyrics is a form of street poetry that focus on many different things, depending on who is speaking about the harsh realities of the streets. The good times in life or personal situations. Chicago rapper Tee Swain is in his prime, but he will also prove his point between these crossroads in his music.

One question I always  like to ask artist is, Where are they from? I want to know where do they consider home is. Tee Swain was born on June 28, 1991 and raised on the West side of Chicago. “Out west is home so you know I’ve been out here my whole life”.

The meaning of motivation is the reason one has for acting or behaving in a particular way. It is a desire and energy that pushes people to move forward while succeeding. “The reason behind Motivation Music, it was just a time of my life where things got hectic and it just kept building and building, sitting heavy on my mind and my heart was just like you have to let some of this out”.

I asked Tee Swain what was his motivation in life and he stated, “My biggest motivation in life is my son, he keeps me going, he keeps me focused, while trying to keep myself up to make a better life for him”. Swain is so in tune with himself and believes that his music will go far into the masses because of his ambition for his son.  Tee wants to bless his son with a lifestyle that he never had growing up. He would like to share experiences together with his son and steer him in the right direction in life, and raise him in better environment.

Tee Swain is influenced by himself (not to be cocky) and also music artist  J. Cole. “It’s like listening to yourself , then listening to yourself… I listen to myself then apply it to the world it’s just like I don’t know myself but I’m picking up who Tee Swain really is and he’s really spitting some true stuff about life”. He respects that Cole touches on subjects that relate to himself in life. It inspires Swain to want to do the same thing as being a rapper who is a deep thinker.

What’s up Next for Tee Swain

Tee is currently organizing his moves for 2016. This past summer has been successful  for him as he performed at events, networked and let people know in these streets who Tee Swain really is. Swain Session III will be released some time next year. Tee is taking time and effort by locking himself in studio, writing and coming up with new ideas for his career. Tee really appreciates his fans that he has gained thus far so stay tuned. Tee said we all will be more shocked and surprised at whats coming, I can’t wait to hear it!

WHO? RIO SCOOB

SCOOB 4

“I do Everything, I edit my own pics, Make my own beats, Mix and master my own songs, I’m my own manager”. – Rio Scoob

Independent artist are musicians that have total control over everything they want to display, we all know that nothing great was built in a day. When you listen to an artist’s music what is it that draws a person in? The Engagement, The Experience, The Lyrics, The Movement. Meet Rio Scoob.

Scoob was born June 28, 1992 and raised on the southside of Chicago. In his early Teens he moved in with his sister “second mom” and lived the suburban life in Plano,IL. He went to Yorkville High School, lived in Oak Park, graduated from Oak Park River Forest High School, chilled on the West Side, downtown, he’s been everywhere, Chicago is his city.

“My life was crazy, so I’m quite sure everybody else’s life is crazy, we all go through things”

Something we all can relate to with Scoob is that he has had a life that is crazy and sweet at the same time. In the midst of it all he was an average kid who really liked to play games. While having a conversation with him I believe I’ve heard him mention Pokemon, so he may be devotee.

“I didn’t really listen to music like that when I was growing up as a kid, growing up and shit I was into games and just being a weird child (laughs)”.

Around the age of 11 years old, Scoob was introduced to hip hop after he was questioned one day by a guy, if he ever heard of 50 cent?  Scoob mistakenly thought the guy was asking for money but he was talking about the rapper. From that day forward Scoob got curious, he started listening to the radio more, researching artist, while starting to rap and make beats of his own at the same time. He is grown man now, doing major things as his career progresses. Have a look-see at his Elevator freestyle above which dropped a couple a weeks ago. It has 3,000 views.

Having relationship issues? Rio Scoob just released a song last week “Ain’t Love” which also has 3,000 plays. His motivation behind the song was from his real life feelings and bad vibes that he and his present girlfriend go through, just as all of us do when in a relationship. “This is about people feeling single in a relationship in a way, it’s always someone getting their heart broke, everybody has a breakup story”.

What’s up Next for Rio Scoob

2016 is approaching fast, Rio Scoob is just getting started. He’s been performing many places such as the Music Garage and SubT. He is currently gearing up for the  releases of his LP The Scoobert Brenaman project and The RioGrandDay project. He calls his music (projects) instead of mixtapes. He will be delivering real life stories and events about his own life. When it is released he is open for honest critique, whether it’s good or bad pull him to the side if you meet him or DM him, he wants the feedback. Follow him on social media below and Stay Tuned!
