It ain’t easy for the Game Changers (Artists). On the real, the Game Changers go through much struggle & sacrifice for the upliftment they bring the people, the inspiration they bring the people, & the knowledge they bring to the people. Big money ain’t thrown behind that. For clearer terms, the Game Changers must be called Mental & Inspirational Freedom Fighters. The Peoples Artists. That is what True Artists Role is suppose to be, an institution for the people.
Songs are created & sung by Artists, even before children go to school. Artists paint, shape and mold art for generations. They make songs that do the same. From the blues singers, to Jazz with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, and others, on up to the 60’s & 70’s with Curtis Mayfield, Gil Scott-Heron, The Last Poets to Today with Rap MC’s like KRS One, Rakim’ Nas, Lauryn Hill, Dead Prez, Killah Priest, Immortal Technique, and others.
There is struggle, sacrifice, commitment, dedication. You don’t see them with Big Houses, Big Contracts, Big Money. Their Art is not trivial. So there is much struggle. We have to support our Real Artists better. They work hard for our upliftment in many ways.
