LYRICAL LIZZO

LIZZO 2

Lizzo is here to take off where older female musicians have left off in music. Not only is she a rapper she is a singer too. Her genres consist of hip-hop and alternative but she mostly delivers Feel Good music with bare beats. Lizzo just dropped her latest album Big GRRRL Small World in December 2015. She is here to teach us all about loving yourself, chilling with your friends and engaging daily life moods. She can definitely spit with the best of them in the rap game, then turn around and make you get all in your feelings.

Lizzo not only talks about self confidence in her music, she also expresses her concerns about being stereotyped and racism. “My blackness is my largest assumed ‘accessory.’ Not my gender, religion or wealth. Because of it, I’ve experienced countless misconceptions from people— neck rolls and gratuitous gestures, overt southern dialects superimposed onto my own voice, perceived “ghetto-ness.” I laugh it off because it’s seemingly harmless, but when we think about where this originates it’s actually poisonous”. All black women are not ghetto, mean and uneducated.

To humanize is to make something friendlier to humans. Humanizing makes things more cultured, delicate, and acceptable. This video is translation of making women with robotic features (guard up) when it comes to themselves and love. Then this guy comes along, who seems to has good intentions, helps this women he is interested in become free (guard down). Listen closely as she also states the words human eyes which sounds close to humanize as well.

Lizzo is fearless, confident, strong, a beautiful BBW and independent. Young girls are being taught to change themselves to look a certain way for validation. Lizzo is inspiring women to be true to who they are. Slap them thighs and smile at those stretch marks! You will be loved as long as you love yourself first!

Lizzo will be at our very own Chicago’s Subterranean in Wicker Park on February 18, 2016 at 8:00pm. Definitely check her out and ask to take a picture.

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!
