I was sitting down watching a Bruce Lee documentary and while watching it, it hit me on what to write about. First off, Bruce Lee was an amazing human being in which for many years to come, his philosophy will be looked at and used in many ways. Right now I am using his philosophy in a hip hop form. In martial arts there are many styles of fighting from Chinese Boxing, Japanese Boxing, German, and so on.
After watching the documentary, I pulled out some of my Bruce Lee movies and watched THE WAY OF THE DRAGON, in which Bruce Lee fought Chuck Norris. In the movie, there were many fighters swearing up and down their style were better then other styles, but it was the line that Bruce Lee projected that made me think, “WHY SHOULD THE FIGHTING STYLE MATTER, IF IT CAN BE USED IN A FIGHT AND YOU KNOW HOW TO USE IT THEN USE IT!”
That’s what Hip Hop Cincinnati styles are different. So why can’t we respect one another style? Because of ignorance, everybody saying that they are the king but still nothing has happened. Most promoters in Cincinnati who have artist under their promotion company also help fuel this fire of ignorance, which in long term separates us because of rigging competition and other events to make their artist more superior then us. When I say “I am 513 GREATEST” it’s because I do it all. I know music changes everyday so I do comedy, act, film, edit, I do it all and I am damn good at at it! When it comes to my Hip Hop, no, I won’t pretend to be a thug, despise violence but don’t test me because I am a full believer of put your hands on me, I will put my hands on you HARDER. I stand for the truth and I am never satisfy with opinions, just facts. A man that uses a gun to fight is a coward! Hip Hop should be what you live and not what you pretend!
That is my style and I use it very well, and for anyone to say that another man’s style is whack or garbage is just like the villain in the movie and you don’t realize until the end that your ignorance and ego will cause you to lose. Even though most of you are not as real as your bars, I have a respect for you, never forget that. Start respecting the craft and style just like BRUCE LEE would if he was alive!
