You cannot accurately judge any book by its cover. I've been rhyming/rapping/emceeing since the mid-1980s growing up in Queens, New York City. Back then, I engaged in many street battles, opened shows at tri-state area venues for successful recording artists, and dreamed of some day making it "big." Ironically, it was only long after I had set that dream aside and moved on to pursue business & family that....about a decade and a half since my last studio demo, hip-hop legend Krs-One (one of my own childhood heroes!) would "discover" me through an unexpected series of events and immediately decide to take me under his wing as an "apprentice"; mentoring me as an emcee, producing my first full-length CD, and having me open for him at various shows for tough hip-hop audiences. Any true hip-hop artist knows that having the blessing of Krs-One is tantamount to having already earned the respect of the culture itself. I am extremely proud of this accomplishment -- You can download the full "It's All Good" CD by Greenie (my emcee name) and Krs-One on Itunes and/or watch the "Real Terrorism" video below (briefly banned on Youtube for being too "controversial" --before numerous renegade Youtube users spoke out and began re-posting it!)
Are the stories on my CD true? For the most part, yes: They are all based on actual events that occurred in my life. However, some of them have been changed to make them more succinct or relevant--i.e. different events that happened at different times may be presented as happening all at once as part of the same story. I recorded "It's ALL Good" after several years of writing and delivering inspirational speeches and the techniques I used to write those same speeches became apparent in the writing of my songs...albeit with a definite hip-hop twist.
