Lets talk for a minute about the Geechee culture and my city Charleston. I want to know why the people in my city and state for that matter believe that they can't make it by sounding like them. Talking to young people on the daily about music and their careers I hear the same message being said over and over again "we can't be GEECHEE!" My question is why not?
Listen I understand that some people talk to the point that you can't understand them, those people have to tone it down. But for the people who actually speak and are easily understood why wouldn't you be you and accept and fully promote your culture. A lot of people have worked hard to try and educate the world about this language and culture so why would you abandon it's influence?
We now have artist like Rick Ross and Wale totally stealing our culture and our styles and putting it into their music to bring a fresh look to their game. If you didn't notice it watch the video above and you will understand. They are coming to our cities and taking from our culture and making plenty of money from it, while we believe we have to sound like someone else to get in the game.
Geechee artist stop thinking you can't make it by being you and believe that you can make it because it's possible. The impossible is considered to be something that hasn't been accomplished yet. So we have to accomplish it. Lets start now and stop letting people steal everything you have for their own personal gain!
