BandHip HopR&B

I consider my music "The New Midwest." Its futuristic, energetic, and hypnotizing at times. I think my sound is right on time, I'm just what the industry called for to finally bring the Sound to the North.

Biography

Not just a name, Politico is a way of life for this rising Midwest Super-Producer/Artist.

"I'd rather be creating the solutions, than talking or rapping about them." Like Shakir Stewart of Universal, Politico also notices the changing hand of Hip Hop across the U.S. which for him, first fostered anger, but now reflects resolve.

"It started in the Eastcoast, turned into a G in the West, and is now dominated by the South. I think naturally the Midwest is next on deck, and when we rise, I plan on counting myself among the Jay-Zs and P. Diddys of the Midwest." In a bid to consolidate the midwest and prepare it for the future reign in Hip Hop Politico is ready to use military precision savvy and leadership to unify a fragmented community plagued with gold-teeth, ATL caps, and 4XL white tees, into a totally unique economic, cultural, and political power house.

"Some Day I will transcend the aspirations of kings and become the kingmaker himself."

Despite of what you see I'm still the Twin Cities King, dominator on the streets, innovator on the beats, voted mayor by my peeps hater slayin pistol sprayin maintain it complicated introduce us to the nation through the northern sound click and them boys syndakit droppin platinum hits stackin gold bricks stackin mo chips, time piece frozen, dime piece rollin taken sudafed cuz my pockets so swollen.

Ain't nobody stoppin me but plenty try to copy me I'm settin the pace in this race train em like socrates, predictions of winnin that keeps me in it and no endin to this militant vision the midwest on a mission.

I'mma natural born leader, I'mma star on the map, from Italy to Korea people know I'm the champ, my mindset never change, I'm in it to win, gettin my stripes in the field while you bought'em for ten the same fakers wearin dog tags claimin they troops but when the guns start bussin see ya shakin in boots, ya heart beatin like a drum palms sweaty and numb; overstated purpetratin I'm keepin it platinum.

I got the engineering chops tight beats gifted lyrically, half a million dollar spot sit on Minnetonka Beach, smoked out Lexus with the gold platin on tha keys, personal assistant keepin track of my activities. My presence command attention intentions on stackin riches enrichin my closest kin and exposin them hypocrites who pretendin they representin the places where I be chillin more concerned about blingin grills than perfectin they rap skills.

I'm on the level with several certified elite, it's time to lace it up, stretch it out, fly and compete, put the city on the globe so the game can change, southside murdapp doin significant thangs. I'm on the front page headlinin cleancut keep it shinin, interviewers askin why I spent a million on a island, when I humbiliy reply, look the camera in the eye women faintin haters haten on my millenium yacht. Ain't gone mention all the upgrades in it exotic women erotic vision playin with ya senses, gone see it from the bottom to the maximun, I done passed up bronze and gold, I'm keepin it platinum.

They take heavy losses with no endin in sight we on da hill raisin flags a wars bein won tonite.

A Wars bein won tonite.

Change

Written By: Politico

Things gone change wait and see Im royalty gold throne for my seat, rope hang to my knees, from the TC streets spittin heat on tha beat bangin Southside P to Colonge Germany, the Lex stop frequently wit tha spinnas on tha ride fire hydrant outside cuz ya boy so hot, take ya woman for a ride just to show her what its like to have 3D playa in a world of cheap lines. Bringin home big bags and a story for her guy, you don't wanna act suprised well I'll be seein her tonight I'll have er home by ten so I can kick it wit her friends send a text message ask her if we doin it again. I'mma king piece in dis chessboard called life you can see me makin moves all day and at night, aint no key to my destiny I keep it on lock duece sevens' where my footprints stompin on da block. The old grind never change tryin to stratify my name taken gold from the market since I started in the game, the lil piece that remain I'll have it sowed in a day I'm up 57 floors wit a map plottin change.

How they gone act when they see me on top? get mad make a diss track just to see it flop? Mr. Get Bad in da pad full of rent-a-cops keep his spot so quite you can hear a pen drop. I aint gotta shoot words we'll keep it on da block flip floppin on ya words when ya see me pull tha glock, seen speakin in tha booth but I'm known in tha field, leave em stretched near death, they world stand still. I'mma keep on movin to ya see me on stage, writin 16-bars and a hook to fill a page, while ya fade into history death a mystery, all the fame that you thought you had; it went to me my flaw free strategy keep my foes on they feet, got em nervous just to eat thinkin poison in they meet, I don't mean to be vain, I think I should explain why ya keep seein visions of ya boy makin change.
