Hello friends. As many of you know, I have been very busy at work for the past few weeks, months, years, trying to step up my game and get my music career to the next level. Thanks to all the hard work I've put into this, and the dedication of my friends, fans, & fam, a lot of blessings have come my way.
- My band, Pedro el Poeta, has been selected to open up for the legendary Rap/Hip-Hop icons, Cypress Hill @ the historic Cuban Club in Tampa on 11/16/2012. Performing with me will be, Matthew Bistok w/ Fall on Purpose, Shadcore, & those in my band: ANomalYE, Lucky Starr, and DJ Vague. Doors open at 8 p.m. Hopefully I will see a lot of familiar faces in the crowd. Get at me for tickets.
- My upcoming album, "Bigger Than This," produced by multi-platinum producer Lance Quinn (Bon Jovi, Talking Heads, etc.), is in the final stages of production w/ a soft release in the works by the end of the year. Look out for it soon.
- At the beginning of the year, I was number 300 something on the Reverb Nation charts for Hip-Hop/Rap in Tampa Bay. Slowly, I have been hustling hard and climbed my way up to number 4! With your help and support, I can make it to number 1 locally, then beyond.
Please add me to your social networks, "like" my band page, download my FREE songs, etc. All of your efforts will be greatly appreciated, and if you're an artist, reciprocated. Thank you. More exciting updates coming soon!
Pedro el Poeta has been on a writing frenzy this past couple of weeks. Be on the lookout for a few hot new tracks to be recorded in the upcoming week or two. "Occupy Consciousness" is coming out as strong as I imagined it. The el Poeta & ANomalYE duo "EmCee Genocide" is one of the most energetic songs in the el Poeta arsenal, also to be recorded soon. "Drowning" is done and ready to be released soon. Stay tuned... www.pedroelpoeta.com
The arts are the backbone of culture. Constantly attacked by the vultures that want our youth in courts or in courts, when the arts make more money than sports. No one wants to invest in anything without bling or fake breasts. They can take our funding, but never our need to express. They can cut it from our schools, but never from our chests. Arts are vital.
Pedro el Poeta and Fall on Purpose will be opening for Funk Legend/Hall-of-Famer George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelics on 11/11/11 at the Venue in Clearwater, FL. This is a huge show for us, please come out, support, and enjoy an incredible show at an awesome spot.
