When you think of Kansas City, MO... you think BBQ, fountains, jazz, and Nego Leagues Baseball. If you are familiar with KC rap and hip-hop, it is often violent, littered with stolen styles, borrowed production, and almost always lacks talent. It's time for change... and that time is now!

Biography

In an industry that has seen its share of fly-by-night acts, Austin “Opie Tailor Made” Mathis is the REAL DEAL! He exudes RAW talent! As a current and active member of Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), Austin Mathis has taken on the executive role of operating his own production company, FlyBoy Music Group, in addition to establishing a superb street team.

During the past 15 years, Opie Tailor Made has written, produced, and performed for the Hip-Hop music community of his hometown – Kansas City, Missouri. With the recent release of I Support My City - Volume 02, his own exclusive mixtape series, Opie Tailor Made is now seeking to acquire the next ‘cream of the crop’ talent to be featured in the third installment of the series.

Several fascinating facts about Opie Tailor Made include the vision he made into reality, and the concept of collaborating with local artists in manifesting his compilations. Artists were personally invited to work with Opie on an advanced level of studio production. Artists were given the opportunity to experience the entire scope of the production, including time to write and listen to the composed compilations, from the introduction to the final track. This is simply Opie’s way of giving back to the community – in a “You have to give respect, to get respect” kind of way.

The following quotes are from Opie Tailor Made in his You Tube smash hit, “All I Got” – “Just brush it off, don’t quit! Keep pressin’ your luck! Because the only ones that fail, don’t try. . . I gotta give it all I got!”

When asked what advice he would give to beginning artists, he replied simply, “If you don’t love music, chances are you’re getting into the business for all the wrong reasons. It takes years of courage, dedication, determination, and hard work to make a living as a musician. . . It starts with a passion for music. If you don’t have that, you either need to find it or forget about it!!”

:: VERSE 01 ::
I'm starin' out the window, they wonder what I'm thinkin',
Last night, up late, sittin' around drinkin',
Reflectin' on life, reminiscin' a bit,
Thinkin' what if I could take it all back,
Forget about all the bad times, erase stormy weather,
If I could do it all again, wouldn't it be better,
I could say I had it all, no I never felt pain,
Never had to hang my head, no I never felt shame,
Never struggled to fit in, never thought I wasn't perfect,
I'd prolly sell my soul to do it, wouldn't it be worth it?
I could right all of my wrongs,
Just like when I'm sittin' in the studio, writin' all my songs.
Now run it back, let me get that one more time,
Okay, play it from the top, now let me punch that line.
But this is life, it don't work like that,
So I just gotta' take a break, yeah, I'll be right back!

:: HOOK ::
I gotta' give it all I got!
It gotta' be a reason that I can't let go,
I gotta' give it all I got!
When you fall then you better get off that flo',
I gotta' give it all I got!
I'm knockin' at the door please let me in,
I gotta' give it all I got!
Volume 02, K.C., we back again!!!

:: VERSE 02 ::
Prolly thought that I was finished after the first, right?
Truth is, I'm just gettin' started, it's gon' be a long night!
'Cause man, this is all I got!
I put up from half court, yeah I took a long shot,
Half my fans, never expected I'd make it,
The other half see my dream, but won't chase it,
Get that one chance, got to take it,
Never look back, 'cause the past, man I bet you can't face it!
Live to regret, that's how we learn,
Love to the end, fan that flame, just let it burn!
You gotta' fall, so you can get back up,
Just brush it off, don't quit, keep pressin' your luck,
Because the only ones who fail, don't try,
And anybody try to tell you different, they a mua' fuckin' lie!
That's why they call it real life, it gets like that,
Just take a break, man, and come right back!

:: HOOK ::
I gotta' give it all I got!
It gotta' be a reason that I can't let go,
I gotta' give it all I got!
When you fall then you better get off that flo',
I gotta' give it all I got!
I'm knockin' at the door please let me in,
I gotta' give it all I got!
Volume 02, K.C., we back again!!!

:: VERSE 03 ::
Maybe could have been you, instead it's me,
Standin' in this spotlight, lookin' like its meant to be,
You'll get here eventually! That's what they tell you, huh?
It doesn't happen overnight, nothin' ever does,
Nothin's like it ever was, before the ever after,
'Cause a book isn't complete without the final chapter!
Question is, who can finish first?
Second place is second best, and third's worse!
You never hear the story of a quitter, that's a man without a name,
And to think you get ahead without a struggle is insane,
So I'm fightin' tooth and nail, gotta' separate myself,
From these other starvin' artists' CD's sittin' on the shelf,
See me out here givin' help, I'm gon' lend a helpin' hand,
No matter what I'm up against, I give it all I can,
'Cause I Support My City - Volume 02 this is a wrap,
And if I don't get 'em with this one... you know I'm comin' right back!

:: HOOK ::
I gotta' give it all I got!
It gotta' be a reason that I can't let go,
I gotta' give it all I got!
When you fall then you better get off that flo',
I gotta' give it all I got!
I'm knockin' at the door please let me in,
I gotta' give it all I got!
Volume 02, K.C., we back again!!!

I gotta' give it all I got!

I gotta' give it all I got!

I gotta' give it all I got!

I gotta' give it all I got!

I gotta' give it all I got!
