""Reclaiming The Music:A Comm't On Rap's Rage""

To an extent, I agree with Stacey Jones' perspective ("Rap's Rage" article). Even though industry standards are not up to par in terms of hip-hop's "depiction of black life in general and women in particular," I believe that the hip-hop genre should be embraced. Why? While the trend has been to protest hip-hop or the people who endorse it, a common voice should be directed to harnessing the power hip-hop has and steering it in a productive direction.

Currently, Essence magazine is promoting a Take Back the Music campaign, which calls for programming executives, producers, and artists, to raise the standard in music especially as it relates to the "depiction of black women" (July 2005). Related grassroots efforts sparked within local communities is having an affect nationwide.

While challenging change in lyrical and video content is appropriate, it is not a panacea. Saying "No" to content without simultaneously providing a feasible alternative can prove counterproductive.

Even though not yet a majority, Kay Bizzy, Canton Jones, T-Bone--even Eddie Velez (hip-hop syndicate host) and Coco brother (radio personality)--are among a growing number of hip-hop entertainers who make hip-hop appealing without being detrimental. These entertainers use their skills and talents to uplift, encourage, and entertain less profanity and misogyny. Artist's beats, rhythms, and hooks are as equally tantalizing as their messages are inspiring. Collectively, these entertainers give hip-hop enthusiasts and other artists a template to work from for improving the standard while increasing consumer demand for hip-hop alternatives.

"So Legendary"

Twice nominated by Gospel Choice Music Awards for “Gospel Hip-Hop Artist of the Year,” Kay Bizzy is making a mark in this generation beyond the words he speaks. Among his credentials, the show-stopping 20-year-old Atlanta native is an opening act favorite for two-time Grammy nominee, Canton Jones. When he is not on the mic, Bizzy can be found joking with members of Inline Student Ministries where he volunteers as both a young adult leader and a “minister” of music.

Unique to his sound is Bizzy’s ability to speak about purity, integrity, respect, as well as “haters,” life, and teen issues in an appealing way. In addition to being sincere, Bizzy’s music is high-energy and contagiously hot. One example is the “Give Him Some Praise” track from his album, The Choice. Released in July 2005, Bizzy’s Crunkfest2 project and the Legendary Mix Tape provide listeners with the same level of energy. Crunkfest2 features [Who Doin It Big, The title song “Godlova” (feat Kay Bizzy) and Da Fam’s “Jump if You Crunk”] The Legendary Mix Tape album features 19 hip-hop tracks including fan favorites: “Make Way,” “Stomp,” and “You Ain’t Crunk.”

Even though encouraging his peers to maintain a standard while having fun is not the norm, Bizzy agrees that it’s cool to sing about God, dance, get things crunk, and have fun. After all, fun is what young people do in a big way so why stop it? “That’s basically what it is. We’re just trying to party and have fun …still keep Christ in our lives and…hold it down. Crunk is what we do….” Bizzy said.

Clearly, Bizzy’s take on life is simple. In his eyes, young people should be able to enjoy themselves without giving into the pressures that often lead to destructive behavior--a message Bizzy voices through his music. Singing about God may seem boring, corny or what was once called sacrilegious but Bizzy, among other holy hip-hop artists, make a seamless transition and provide balance between beats, style, and lyrical content. Proof-in-the pudding’ is the way audiences flood the stage and dance to his songs.

Also known as Mr. Milliyon$, Kay Bizzy, was among the feature artists during Holy Hip-Hop Music Week in Atlanta. Even though his songs are clearly hip-hop, Bizzy sets a different tone—even flips the script—by having a level head and sporting a clean school boy look. Although Bizzy’s music is gospel in theme, it is as “crunker-than-crunk-crunker-than-crunk” (see single: Look at Me) as it is so legendary. IE

Bio

A gifted rapper, writer, producer, and minister, Milliyon aka Kay BIzzy (born, Keenen Browne), first stepped onto the Hip Hop scene seven years ago as the manager and lead artist for the group, Holy Ghost Rydaz. Instrumental in securing the group’s first public appearance at Be Made Whole--a music conference held at the Atlanta Civic Center. It is this experience that Milliyon credits for leading him to “bigger opportunities and greater spiritual growth.”

Determined to fulfill the call to be a minister of music, he emerged as a solo-artist in 2002 under Eternal Fava Management where he was the company’s headliner for two years. A striking example of an artist called by God to witness to the unsaved world, today, Milliyon travels to schools, churches, block parties, and even clubs, declaring the “praises of him who called [us] out of darkness into his marvelous light” (I Peter 2:9).

At 21, Mr. Milliyon$ aspires to be a role model to youth and young adults. Quoting I Timothy 4:12, Milliyon says he “[lets] no man despise his youth, but [is] an example of believers in word, conversation, charity, faith, and in purity.”

From Bishop T. D. Jakes’ MegaFest and New Birth Missionary Baptist Church’s Re-Present Youth Conference, to Miami SpringFest, the Atlantis Music Conference, and Radio One’s Dirty Awards, Milliyon unashamedly shares his passion for music and love for God with the masses. Among his accomplishments, the Gospel Choice Music Awards twice nominated him for “Gospel Hip Hop Artist of the Year” (2004 and 2005). In 2006, Milliyon began sharing the stage with Christian and mainstream artists: Rick Ross, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, Dottie Peoples, Deitric Haddon, Ty Tribbett,, T-pain, and, Young Joc.

Despite maintaining an extensive schedule, Milliyon has not lost sight of the vital need to be connected to a ministry. His church home is World Changers Church International where he receives sound Biblical instruction under pastors Creflo and Taffi Dollar. A member since age 10, Milliyon attributes his understanding of God’s word and the ability to teach through music to his pastors.

With each venue he gains access to, he expects to “win countless souls for Christ by being an outlet for the Lord to minister to a hurting world.” When he feels led to quit, he simply recalls how love compelled Jesus to die on the cross for the lost.

In October 2007, Milliyon signed to Major label, CAJO International. Currently, he is on the Who Doin’ It Big tour with R&P sensation and label mate, Canton Jones.
