MOTIVATION


...Sumthin that i dont have alot of these days. I guess it happens when u choose 2 do sumthin that used 2 b a hobby as work. I didnt "work" on any music 2day...not yet at least. I feel a cold comin on. Im behind on a few projects at the moment. Usually when i procrastinate i still get whatever im workin on done in time...


I dont know... Im think im just tired of workin on stuff and not gettin paid(or gettin paid but not gettin what I deserve 2 get paid)4 it. Its crazy how many hours go into a lil 3 minute song. Its weird. Even the record labels are tryin 2 get sumthin 4 nuthin now.

I plan on puttin out my next project out 4 free in response 2 all the folks that have been bootleggin my stuff over the few short years om my "career". I guess thats my way of "fighting fire with fire". Well, I'd rather put my own stuff out 4 free than have a record label rebuild their name off of mine. Im kinda ramblin off subject now. Strange...not just music either.

I need 2 b more self motivated in just about every area of my life. Dag... The time I spent typin this I probably coulda been doin sumthin "productive" instead of sittin in front of the computer,eatin a bowl of cereal...bloggin. I need 2 get my life 2gether...

i always wondered what the deal behind this song?
it was on that mixtape & then it turned up on that violin bidge's album with production credited to 'p-nut' or something...

i know how that is and i dont know how that is. I know becuz my life is music. I write about hip hop for a living but I barely get by. I've worked with record labels for a couple years, and they pay shit. It's hard work. I'm over qualified for everything i do yet I see a fraction of what i feel I deserve.

At the same time you're Kev Brown. You're among the most respected indie musicians on the planet, of any genre.

I wish I could motivate you. I'm just waiting for the Exclusive Joints I just ordered on your Myspace, prolly bumpin I Do What I Do until then, lol.

Whatever u choose to do i understand. It isn't your fault the industry is dying a painful death

Yo Kev, my motivation is up partially because of you. Stuck in a job that I don't like, trying to make something out of my passion and listening to your unique vibes til 4AM everyday in Switzo-land. Keep on feeding me with your funk, I will promise to buy two copies of every joint you produce. You're like an ordinary hero to me, so gifted but at the same time so accessible, 3 minutes takes a lot of work I agree, but dont think it's wasted as it spreads and conveys over a piece of a lifetime of others. Today I was dancing with my 2 year old daugher on Life's a gamble remix, once, twice, three times, she liked it and that moment will remain in my memory forever...and that is priceless...god bless the soul. Peace. PrinceO

Well, at least as long as you want to suffer that you will have people listening carefully what you are playing.

kwv, i definitely feel you. i gotta be honest....you've motivated me on the next level and i'm glad you continue to make the moves that you have made. and great things will be coming your way. just be patient and it'll work out.

yo Kev! This comes in from Estonia - just trying to show you that your music is respected worldwide! Man i don`t take this for granted. Each time i put on any of your albums or joints you`ve created i think how much time you must`ve spent on it to make it sound so perfect...rather innovational. You found a new level or aspect of producing music whether you yourself acknowledge it or not..plus your lyrical delivery is what i`m looking for each and every track also. So sincere-that`s the onliest phrase i can say to describe it...You touch people with your music...The struggle will always be there and i know about it also, but the fact is, if you don`t find the motivation the the love will direct you, cause truly believe that love in the deepest form for something will never disappear even if the thing turns into just "work". Give it some time and it`ll talk to you again just as it used to...one love!

Do what you love. Love what you do. Or, in your case, just Do What You Do because What You Do is some of the best goddamn shit out there.

You familiar with People Under The Stairs? "When the stress burns my brain just like acid rain drops Kev Brown is the only thing that makes my pain stop."

Your music keeps me chill when I'm going through hard times. Keep it up man, and cheer up, 'cause it's mad dumb for someone like you to not feel great about the music they make.

For what it's worth and I hope it's worth something; you're the future, man. I wouldn't say that unless I thought it truth so there it is. Get yours when you need it. Never say you're sorry or settle for less.

Phonesay said...

yo Kev, I feel that shit, but don't stop! You said it right "i do what i do". And that's what I love.. These beats just flowin.. Cant stop to listen to your stuff..
I don't know how to motivate you, but one thing I know is that your stuff is going up!
Keep on doin that real shit!
Peace from Germany

it hurts to see a good brother and such a esteemed musician going through this...a producer who is already mentioned beside dj premier, pete rock, j dilla, diamond d (thats what my ears tell me not the source magazine).....your much bigger than you give yourself credit for my dude...you claim u dont got motivation but you yourself are "motivation" and give people motivation on some real shit..

when people are suffering everyday going to the slave ships broke in the crib with hardly any groceries...cats will throw on a k.b. joint and just for thoose 3mins feel wealthy at least in the soul...you uplift, ease, and motivate them and show the listeners that everyones got trials ..."strugglas theme" 'alone again" countless music my brother...its timeless....you dont have motivation but remember you are "thee motivation" for thousands of people worldwide in places you never even knew existed....all from your home studio..in palmer park to holland...

May allah make it easy for you k.b. and grant you motivation, ease all your hardships, and provide sustenance in abundance to you my brother and reward you for your efforts

Stop crying like a bitch? who said the man was crying? you got that new cybervision modoem in south africa?

first off, check yourself! ..DO NOT...i mean DO NOT! violate someone and show some disrespect like that..."crying like a little bitch" you need to learn some respect for your elders and esteemed people...even if you mean well...thats not the way to talk to talk to people..he was kicking real talk from a humans point of view...the dude doesnt eat the "mpc" or his "4 track" for lunch ...hes a human ...not your music making slave house nigga...you feel me? what you said was equivalent to a supervisor telling them sweatshop immigrants "keep making thoose shoes and stop bitching about you lost feeling in your hands or if your back hurts for $1 an hr"

i bet your one of those clowns that downloads all his music...your a fucking user....hip hop is dead because people like you want more and download all...it costs to make music dickhead...if you dont make money back on your shit...its not very easy to make an album...

dont disrespect the man that brought you music that will last forever....and do not reply to me on this and disrespect kev browns blog he made for ungrateful little freeloaders like you

if you got a problem and wanna e-fight...holla
