If I may be so bold as to as to ask... for a donation
I hear it. Don’t think that I don’t. The sound of your wallets clapping shut and being shoved back into your pocket. Oh, it’s a tricky, silent sound. But a sound nonetheless, and I hear all things.
Before I explain what the donation is, exactly, please take the time to read the following.
I have been on this site for I think a little over a year now, surmassing nearly 20,000 IQ points through 989 explanations, and I have added 88 songs to the site, and I have done my best to try and avoid trolling. The reason I am telling you this is to let you know that I, in whats most likely a small way, have contributed to this site that I love and visit every day. I love it, I really do. This site has done an unbelivable job with opening up my ears to fantastic, versatile music. I am not active that much in chat, and I tend to try and avoid commenting in threads (most of the time), and the reason why is because no matter how long I’ve been on the internet, I’ve never grasped it’s language, despite having a few rare moments of flawlesss interaction. I will be the first to admit just how irrelevant I am… or “irrelish” or whatever the fuck the term is. I’m an awkward person who is good at neither witty comebacks or successful trolling.
If you recognized me at all, it’s mostly because I have been oddly active as of late in the comments (and me blowing up on PioZon (sorry)).
Anyway, my point is, I’ve tried to help participate in this sites growth and tried to stay true to it’s purpose of explaining lyrics and I have tried getting into new RG artists, be it artists that are talented and unique, or the more-often-than-not terrible 13 year old who got his hands on a mic (not a subliminal at anyone).
I’ve tried to become a member of the community, and I have realized that my place is in it’s shadows, just editing and explaining lyrics and fixing songs. I’m okay with that.
You guys may also recognize me as the one who makes seemingly thousands of threads on Danimal Lector. I have introduced his music time and time again onto this site, and unfortunately it seems like no interest is shown. I understand, I get it. Not everyone likes the same thing.
Everything that I listed above, I listed to show you that no, I am not just some random member making a spam thread about this dope new artist (although I admit, I once was that kind of user). I have “credentials”, as I have noticed that’s what many of the complaints are of these days: Too many people with basically 0 IQ spamming us with their music. I get it, I know it’s annoying.
But now, it seems, unfortunately, I really do have to beg of your help. Before, I was merely attemping to get you into his music.
Before I get to where I’m going here, let me once again link you to his works:
Those are his musical projects, if you’d like to check them out.
Now to the main purpose of this thread. Right now he is currently working on two projects: Bars Attacks, and Hookahs and Machetes, both are which discussed in this video here
Bars Attacks is a mixtape, Hookahs and Machetes is an EP (both with dope features). I won’t talk too much about them (one, because I’ve already created a thread about it and two, the video really does provide all the information).
The problem is, these two projects have spent him all out. He’s got zilch. Nada.
So he’s currently doing a fundraiser, trying to raise at least $2,000. As explained in the video, the money raised would not go to his pocket at all. Instead, the money will go into tours, merchandise, albums, features, shit like that.
So far we (his fanbase) have achieved $1,052 at the time of this posting, myself donating $200 out of that thousand.
This is a guy who’s very passionate about his work. The very epitome of what you here on rapgenius crave: maybe not in the kind of talent or subject matter you’re looking for, but the absolute 100% real attitude we’ve all wished to be back in hip hop.
So here I am, asking you to contribute by donating to this mans fundraiser. If you feel the need to be motivated to do it, click the links to his mixtapes and realize “Holy fuck… I need more of this”.
This is an artist trying to achieve his dream and support his family. You don’t need to donate a lot — but if you were to donate anything at all, it would be appreciated beyond measure, especially by D. Lector.
This is your chance to actually support the artist, not the record label the artist is signed too.
Oh and, it’s not mentioned in the video because it happened after the videos posting, but he does have a feature with Jarren Benton for one of the projects (I’m hoping it’s Hookahs and Machetes).
Anyway, if you listen to his music and like his shit, his artist page is here.
Thank you if you decide to donate or check his music out, and thank you for reading all the way through.
You’re right, this is a really great way to support an artist in the way we WANT to support them!
Oh and the fundraiser ends on the 28th. Fellow RG users I’m asking you… please.
You like Rick Ross, so you’re awesome. I might just donate
I would, I swear to god I would, but at this point I got nothin' in this world but the 20 in my pocket. Bump to support a guy who clearly loves Hip Hop!
I might be able to scrape together some money, how do I donate if I manage to get the money?
Nas loves hip hop too I didnt buy any of his CD’s.
$2000 isnt really a lot these days… tell him to get a job. a real job, not rapping
I too would usually donate a couple of bucks to help a man out however i have real life bills i need to pay (1000$ for a damn consultation + travelling expenses across the world)
I rather donate to a better cause.
I donate as much I have ability. But when I donate for something I have to know the proper purpose. without knowing the purpose no one can’t give anything to anyone.
@richforever It really would be great if you did… and yes, Rick Ross is awesome
@Nepeta thanks for the bump!
@Krypt You need to have an Amazon account or a credit/debit card… If you donate, thank you so much!
@SDVG He does have a job, but like everyone else, he has bills. Like I said in the post, this money goes directly into funding his projects and tours. Nas is also a millionaire and doesn’t need your money.
@pjd Perfectly understandable!
@DoctorStrange I understand, also, I hope there are no hard feelings about our talk in the other thread! Perhaps I just misunderstood your sarcasm or tried to take advantage over a flaw I saw, I dunno. But I do apologize.
@thebraintrust Alright! Thank you for taking the time to read the thread, though!
@Luck If you click the blue fundraiser word, it takes you to a video and page explaining the purpose of the fundraiser and where your donation will go… if you decide to donate, thank you!
@Beanhead thanks for the bump!
Would definitely if I could, but I’m broke as well so all I can give is support
Good luck though!
