Bc 2-tone 2010 Hip Hop Awards

Producer of the year:
Ski Beatz.

His work with various artists including Joel Ortiz, Jay Electronica, Jean Grae and more in 24 Hour Karate School gave an old school new school feel and represented real hip hop. His work with the majority of Pilot Talk 1 & 2 gave real smooth beats and nice sounds that let Curren$y's work shine with the unique style.

Wiz Khalifa.

This young man did it on his own. He made the right moves. Worked with the right people and let his personality/gimmick come into play to strike interest into many fans that are "taylored".

BC2tone and hip hop

Hip hop doesnt have to stand for anything specific. Take it for what it means to you. Half the ppl are ignorant to it and only listen to the radio anyways. Why does hip hop need to stand for something specific anyways. Radio pop has been around and I never heard a complaint.

Hip Hop stands for so much more than most can comprehend

Lesson of the week. Happy 100th Post.

Do as much good things in this world because you do not live here forever. Try new things. Be happy. Work hard, but don't stress too much.

Poetry - BC 2tone

I love poetry. I love the different styles, subjects, layouts that can be used. I love when it is recited and love when I hear or read something new. I will be reciting some of my poetry in New Brunswick next Tuesday. I will be putting on for my latino culture, my family, my friends, and my city. My favorite songs that I have recored have a poetic style (Cloud Surfing 1 and pt 2). I am an English major and really appreciate the art.

Did you know?: During high school I recited a rap on Broadway NY to open up for the play Rent? Bright spot light. Something I wasn't use to. I still see that light to this day, that's how bright it was. It was a great experience. Over 1000 in the audience. Standing ovation. I killed that performance even with my nervousness lol.

Come to Rutgers New Brunswick. Tuesday 7 PM. See me open up the show for a lot of great performances that will take place. If you can't make it... we'll be sure to post video footage on Youtube for you. Thanks.

Monday, November 1, 2010

I pulled a no show.

Mixtape didn't release. Well, this is because I had a sound engineer go ghost on me. Luckily, I found someone else to help record me. This Friday RonTheDon and I are hitting the studio to get some tracks done, including our "Cloud Surfing 2" collaboration. I've been practicing sound stuff and flows at my house but I want to give some quality tracks for the mixtape. I promise that this tape will either have a track (s) that will inspire you, impress you, make you think, or make you bop your head to.

"The Adventures of Tarzan"

Better late then never

PS New music video coming with the tape.

Newark, NJ on the rise.

Watching the game opener for NJ Nets at Prudential Center.. well on th YES network allowed me to see that Newark is on the move to have a positive reputation. Newark will be hosting the 2011 NBA Draft. This is big news for the city I live and grew up in. I'm just hoping they don't wipe out all the poor people because this city is going to become an attraction city in years to come.

Overall, I love my city. A lot of stuff I hate too, but it made me who I am. I feel like I am a strong person because of pushing through the struggles and refusing to becoming a statistic. From the time of the Newark riots in 1967 to now a lot of progress has been made. I just think we need to have our good stores back like Macy's and Bamberger's. My mom said those were the days...

Newark also has a lot of talent. A lot of artistic people in this city. Hopefully they'll get the exposure they deserve.

Peace. I <3 Newark.

Class time.

I'm living to help positively shape the minds of kids. Everyday I am mentoring kids on the block and I have seen a lot of good progress.



Lessons learned for future shows:
1. have the beat on loud enough to feel bass and get energy
2. Make sure you are able to hear your adlibs
3. Don't get nervous. Even if it is not your typical element
4. Engrave the lyrics to your soul for no slippage

of course.. this one had to be subtle for a classroom lol

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Free.

I have a dream to truly be free... To have nothing to hold me back. To not be stuck in this environment. To not be stuck in a stand still. To see new things. Make new things. And finally be happy.

[I am especially tired of dumb local detectives asking me silly questions and having a poor portrayal of who I am. It felt so good to show them my college university ID. Hopefully they can stop harassing me. I live in the hood, isn't that bad enough? Let me live. Urban clothes, long hair, baby face, and I look like I am taking care of myself. Is that a reason to bother me? I get bothered less in the suburbs now, that's sad. And no I am not cutting my hair. Guess they are all mad because I am already at a higher level of education then them and I confidence everywhere I go. Guess they are a little threatened by how free I try to live.]

Writer stuff.

This was an opening paragraph to a paper I wrote in response to a poetry session I went to at Rutgers. It relates to how personal life and writing life can create conflict, but should it?

Being aware of what is shared is always going on in my mind when I am writing my poetry. I feel it does restrict my writing, but does give the appropriate censorship. Some things are better left unsaid for personal reasons and because sometimes you could be writing feelings that were only there for that moment while writing. I feel like words that are written by someone will stay with that person forever and it would be best to leave out feelings of hatred towards someone specific or something else that you want private. For one, that person can be someone you actually love and what if they pass away? Their last thoughts of your feelings on them would be hate and you would regret it because those weren’t your true feelings. Then secondly, you could be revealing something that would get you to lose your job because of how controversial or unmoral it might seem. Personally, I write a lot of my feelings and do release a lot to the public, but every so often I must know when I am saying a little bit too much.

Speech recited at end of song

I can see emotion but I can't feel it
I am probably a robot made to detect who is the realest
What is the purpose to be on this Earth? and is everything an illusion?
Was everything setup to be this way to bring everyone to no conclusion?
Are we in relationships to feel like we are something special?
When were just a number in this world, man it's all a mess yo
Do we have have kids to continue a legacy that doesn't exist?
Just to make us think we last forever but really wash away in mist
As I see her cry when I tell her this
I comfort her because I was programmed to know how a feeling is
This is not a good way to think and this is called depression
I overcame that nonsense. Love can teach you a lesson

[Prisoner of my Mind: But I found you]

Monday, October 4, 2010

Now who would I wanna work with. New School.

Charles Hamilton - Has his own sound and is really one with his music. Great producer. Great story to his identity. Listen to the album "This Perfect Life"

Kid Cudi - His flow, arrogance and subject matter go hand in hand to create something that can be called "Dat New New"

Curren$y - He eats tracks in a indescribable but vicious way. Cool guy. Dope Style.

Wiz Khalifa - Great for hooks and making a feel good song about some fun subject matters.

Asher Roth - Dude is cool, smart, and starting a revolution. Don't sleep on him.

Jay Electronica - A sound that Nas even wanted. Let this man tell a story and eat a track up and make it look easy. He'll leave you thinking.

Yelawolf - Alabama crazy style. Flow is dope and is with that new school.

J. Cole - A chick could learn a lot about an intelligent dude from the hood from this guy.

Nipsey Hu$$le - Keeps it real. Smooth snoop type flow and you can see he has a lot of respect for people and all types of rappers.

"blur"

Well, for one thing I know that will go well before the end of the year is a good semester. I am confident that I'll get at least a 3.5. Another thing that might go well is the results of the mixtape, especially looking forward to shooting a video for "Cloud Surfing 2".

As far as happiness. I can say I am happy to be alive, happy my friends are alive, and happy to see that my family and friends are pushing for success. It's never good to be in a stand still.

I've kind of lost some of my emotions lately. Love can do that to you. Right now I am in search of finding love for myself before I can devote all my love to.. well her.

Everything is influencing my music right now in this time of "blur" now that things are changing like a season. Wish I can be like the rest of the world and be oblivious to what happens in life. Sad thing is I think too much.

Regardless of what happens in this journey... I want all my friends know I love them. All of my dudes that are down to chill and talk, I appreciate it. To the girl that gives me most of my headaches, I appreciate you too because it let's me know someone cares. I want to thank my family for never giving up on me even through our most distant times. I want to thank everyone for their support in what I do and who I am.

Thank you.

City Council meeting was an experience. Here's footage of the rally



It felt like a movie. People will come in chanting and demanding. Sad thing is that it may go in one ear and out the other for the councilmen. Hopefully I can be proven wrong. Hopefully there will be positive change. It's a team effort.

School Poem

Where I’m From
I am from a land of make believe
A reality I want but fail to see
I am from a place where I surpassed those struggles
Through working out a plan like a football huddle
I am from a game where I might “Guess who” then monopolize and get into “Trouble”
Learn from mistakes and happiness will pop like a bubble

I am from cop sirens, baby screams, and people fighting
I’m from a polluted atmosphere with people dying
I’m from a place where we need a shift in direction
To regain hope and expand maybe get reborn overseas. Call it a sea section

I’m from the city of bricks
Building a foundation without hay or sticks
So the bad wolf cannot blow down where I’m from
Because I’m from where our one pound might feel like a ton
I still carry my roots on my back
Determined to blossom in life and stay on track
Soon to make hospitals and schools where lies liquor stores and chicken shacks
I’m from a place where you have to think positive to make it
Because you’ll still have your mind even if robbed naked

Leaked two tracks

I leaked two tracks on facebook today until 12 AM.
"Smoking Sunshine Love"
and "East Coast Connection" FT. G-Talk

I will be dropping the full tape when I reach 1000 likes for this facebook page that you see on the right>>

Also will be dropping a music video and interview upon release.

2-tone is now gone!

PS
The track Sunshine was written to show the constant up and downs in a relationship. Almost like a sunny day that changes back and forth to rainy. Sunshine is the hope and love. Thought that should be shared, in case the verses gave confusion. It was intended to confuse as well ;)

Another Lyrics preview

Should I hit em with the punchlines wordplay stories
Hit them with the conscious shit people say that its boring
fine let me talk about how the money is pouring
Lie to the audience say that the guns are storing
How I rock shoes and only if they Jordan
Rock a big a big a chain just to go to the store then
have like 10 bitches and I'm swimming in their organs
Never gonna wife them. never hear the organ.. play
Push like a kilo day
Shoot a hero today
Be the villain tomorrow
Average hip hop life man I see that sorrow
Brick City is the Jungle and life is never borrowed

Lyrics Preview for Mixtape..

I'm in the bricks like a car with wheels stolen
My boy in the pin he struck out no bowling
That's me on your screen and that shit is frozen
You don't want a shit a face then don't stick your nose in
Explosion with the motion like Wii controling
I pray on my trees so I'm smoking all the souls in
Forever living like my nigga Gary Coleman
Switching up the flow cuz I'm not an old man
Not afraid of change. Unless it's falling from the sky about to hit my head
The Rap game needs a shape up and im Edward Scissors hands
IM spitting my bullets and my shit go blam
If Im your son then I am son of Sam
You are pushing on the cart and I and I am giving you a can
your crossing the street your holding on my hand
Your girl tweet about me now you hating on my jam
It's like you speak another language I dont comprehend
How people dont understand common sense
I'm on my lazy ass flow cuz I been a lil too tense
I been rapping since 9 in a lil ass tent
Watching mtv had my mind bent
My momma thought I was crazy and I probably am
Cuz i was writing words while kids were playing with crayons
I've always been respectful but Imma bout to jam
Analyze my lyrics and I'll have me a fan
Your judgment could be wrong but that's a part of the plan
I don't trust much people cuz they turn like a fan
Giving gifts to prove a message
posted shit online but for you to get the message
I say the same word twice cuz I don't know where I'm headed
This beat is my L and I'mma go and dead it
People in jealousy and it's so fucking pathetic
I'm growing up in life without getting taller
I'm not heading the same route. I'm in a helicopter
You in a traffic jam stuck with busienss men cops and doctors
And they a lil shady
Just like the subject matter niggas is rapping like ladies
Im walking down the block I cross her eye Mcgrady
Yall snack wraps getting sold for a dollar
Super Size me im fat like an oprah..
Singer
but I do not sing.
ooh laa laa do rae me
You could rate me as the worse
Until someone says he spit a hot verse
changing your mind
Your word is your bond but I'll let you rewind
Easily influenced dudes are an easy target
Bout to burn a cd heading to target
Eat at a diner knowing that im the hardest
Low confidence shouts arrogance screams
cool calm collective and I am still making a scene
My dude told me 70 percent of communication is for manipulation
Heard my verse were you manipulated?

Tarzzzzzzzan

3 years ago I was first called Tarzan by IDK who and it spread. 3 years later I am climbing over people in a overcrowded Rutgers NB bus and they cheer TARZAN! TARZAN! Epic.

Going to quote some of my recent facebook statuses.

" Common sense and common knowledge as well as having an analytical mind that can view things at different angles represent a true potential genius. Applying those things might even make you know too much and eventually unsatisfied. Its hard being a genius."

" This is plan Hob-B. "

"I know I will probably never make it BIG. One thing that I do know though is that I am making it... Making this music... Whether 1 person listens or 1 million listen. If I touch at least one person's heart or mind with it I feel like my job is complete. Mission Accomplished. Thank You for the support."

Ordinary day. Ordinary interview


Watch it. Nothing fancy. Hit me up on twitter @tweet2tone and tell me what you think.
Shout out to Alphaa Omega Films for hooking up the video and interview.

Friday, I am going to post an interview just done recently and it captured a lot that I want you to see. Posting new pics and the rough draft of the track list to "The Adventures of Tarzan" Mixtape.

Happy Birthday and Happy Super Bowl

Special weekend just passed for my family my older brother turned 24 on Saturday.
My little brother turned 13 on Sunday. And of course we celebrated what is probably
my family's most happiest holiday which was the SUPER BOWL. Super Bowl is special to me because back in the day it would be the day we know my father would come home early from work. All the super bowls from what I remember had a good story to them as far as my family for the exception of one day when a lot of chaos happened. But I guess good times and bad times make a day special.

This weekend I saw how my little brother is growing up. I saw how my family tries to make the best out of what we have since we don't have much. My little brother is finally starting to think he is cooler than me and he is starting to care about his appearence a lot. My older brother is finally in a good paying stable job trying to help the family as much as possible and it is much appreciated. I want to thank my family for everything and wish my brothers happy birthday. You can follow the little one on twitter (@antzone2) and the older (@chrisLNieves)

(just got back from ballin up.. actin a fool on the court but playin good..) lol

Up and Coming Rapper Tips .. BC 2-Tone!! lol

Some people use controversy to get known, as for myself I want to get known for talent. Controversy will come regardless if I get big so I do not want to feed it.

Some people do not understand rap or they just look for any little thing to judge you.
Therefore I am giving all upcoming rappers a tip on some words to never say in a song or at least not until you believe you can get away with anything or just don't care anymore. Remember people take a lot of things into offense!

1. Do not overuse the use of murder, and violence (and remember its not cool to claim something that is false.

2. The use of Bitch or Hoe or disrespecting females should be limited or eliminated.

3. Just don't say gay or fag. (There is even a south park episode about it season 13)

Other tips

- Don't dis for no reason! and don't get mad and let it show too much in a song
- Leave some things to the imagination. (Do not be TOO literal)
- Don't be afraid to be different in anyway
- Be yourself! and your personality will shine
- If you sound too much like a famous rapper. Change up...
- .. It's okay to have influences!
- Remember being different is not easy CONSIDERING everyone is trying to be different

PS: My Mixtape will be available Feb 26, 2009. Most of the Leaks on http://bc2tonedownload.blogspot.com will be deleted Feb 4th So grab them now!

Wow the things that makes us say stuff is crazy + News + Thank You

I was writing a rap to a KRS one beat and there are random words being shouted in the background. As I am writing I am just focusing on writing and flowing to the beat. I play back the beat and the words or adlibs being shouted within the beat are the certain words I am writing. Sick! I just thought it's crazy how our subconcious mind works. It is 5:27 AM and I am already working on writing and recording. ADDICTED. Then I got real work at the school library at noon. Ugh..

Some News:

Hotnewhiphop.com finally sent me an email. I was "noticed" so that's what's up.! Hard work that I put in for Recording and promotions are paying off.

Cory Booker said in regards to my work efforts in school and music on twitter that he is "proud and grateful". Pretty dope to hear those words from a mayor.

Music has been recorded and I am working on making the Download Links and Youtube Videos so they will be posted shortly.

CONTACT ME! VIA email if you are an artist from the Jersey area that is interested in working with me. I am working on a a project that will involve a lot of features!

--Special Thanks!

I want to thank everyone including family, friends, girlfriend, fans, and others for their support! Shout out to Brick Set.

It really feels good to get possitive feedback because I dedicate a lot of time and hard work into everything that I do!

Whatever everyone calls it these days. lol I remember Queen Latifah saying that back in the day I forgot where.. I was like 6 years old. Remember that but I can't remember that I turned a shower on and then think my mom is inside. lol

PS. Thanks for the support from those who repost my videos and etc. Just know that when it comes to a song it comes from the heart. Everything that is put in a song has personal meaning and man.. the music making process for me is crazy! When someone interviews me which wont be for a while your gonna be like damn! when I answer the question of what my music making process is. Pce.

World is a messed up place... well sometimes lol.. serious mode now.

I feel like I am a dying breed. I do not live to be a jerk, to be selfish, to use people. People, be careful who you trust. People speak the truth and they turn heartless. I think... How can you even think like that in the first place. Damn.. it sucks cuz now I feel like I have to turn into your breed in order to feel satisfied. It will never end. This is dedicated to a number of people. Do not feel famous. nor infamous nor nothing. I mean feel how you want but F**k your feelings.

PS: As far as music no more hard curses will be allowed to come out from my mouth on tracks. Gotta be aware that kids may listen to my stuff and that is not a good look.

Brick Set Documentary Postponed.. for a very long time.

Group is going through a lot. A lot of personal things that I cannot discuss to the public. Nothing life threatening tho so for those that do care please don't worry. So instead of posting the funny ass Brick Set documentary January 18th I will be posting a short compilation of my life. Still gonna be great since.. well it's about about me! sike...

Posting 2 songs later on January 6th. So check back. Brickss..

PS: anyone looking to do music and cannot find the right person (s) to work with or if any advice is need you can email me at bc2tone973@yahoo.com. I am looking to help people with potential and talent because it'll only make the both of us better. Working together is important. Unite.
