It was a week after my youngest child’s birth. A very special time birth is, a new beginning not only for the child but for all of us. Baby’s mother wanted time to bond with the little one. So we pack up some things and leave for the day.
Ahhhh... the infamous picture of me before freshman year.
I was talking to my friend, Jay Diamondz, about the crazy things that happen backstage. With the most hilariously casual tone in his voice, he told me that he once had a guy dress up as a busboy to get backstage in order to meet him.
Urban Tales Volume Two is the second installment in the trilogy. Volume One dealt with growing up in the inner city with stand out stories like "Grandma's House" and "Life Like." The trilogy of Urban Tales is Artcha's mature take on life and growing through generations, culture, politics, education, and relationships. Volume Three is due in the last quarter of 2019 and there are plans to turn all of the musical stories into a theatre production at the top of 2020. Urban Tales Volume Two is accompanied by a short film by Artcha @artchatec Directed by @LDN.Creative and starring @jodyvleigh and @himalsoul. The film places the classic Romeo and Juliet scenario into modern context. How far has society changed when it comes to mixed relationships? In fact, this film opens the debate to relationships in general and the fundamental differences between men and women, addiction and restraint, the poor and the rich, the educated and the ignorant. Artcha has taken the roots of his second album, in the trilogy Urban Tales, to synthesize these ideas and broaden the horizon of what classic hip-hop storytelling can really do.
Music is my muse, as well as my cultural common denominator and ever-evolving language. I am 68 years old and have worked as a journalist and author, but my supreme passion has been writing and playing music. The creative process used in pursuit of my art provides a direct link to my spirituality; it is my spirituality: When I write or play music, I feel connected to all things, understand most things, and take the greatest succor in being human.
My thumbs were thumping against the steering wheel, head swaying gently, following the addictive beat of the song coming from my speakers.
