The current state of hip-hop has been decided by the numerous forms of social media available to all at the click of a button. The internet has become saturated with unprofessionally created works which exhaust a fans willingness to listen to something unheard of. This creates a problem because the new age “listener” no longer pays attention to the message within a song (or lack there of). The driving message behind “2000wHATevER: Timeless Music” is that the lyrics have substance and should be listened to. Merely releasing the album on a regular scale could potentially be a failed effort especially when going up against mainstream funded productions of the “unprofessionally created works”.
Our outlook on how we will get people to listen to us can be compared to the function of a children’s book containing intriguing/carefully designed artwork to catch the eyes of the viewer (reader). The project, “2000wHATevER: Timeless Music”, contains 12 high quality audio recordings that will be reinforced by 12 high quality music videos (Coming soon). These videos will tell the story of the songs meaning causing viewers to subliminally listen to the lyrical content of the album. This will build a sense of appreciation for what is being viewed and display a visual picture for those who lack imagination.
