"Inside Tha Jackals Head W/Rawboss" on PSN Radio

Tonight I go over some of the latest headlines in hip hop, and movies. Talked about the current Suge Knight murder trial, and how I think he should not spend another day in prison. That’s right I said it. Listen to the first half hour of the show, and listen in to my thoughts on what happened, and how while he’s not a good dude in this current situation he shouldn’t be sent to prison. I know this will be controversial to some! Also Beastie Boys go Diamond, Shock G of Digital Underground who recently in an article gave us an inside on what he thinks Tupac was feeling as he left the world, and Drake gets into trouble, and faces a possible lawsuit! The guest of the night! RAWBOSS! Born March 26, 1986 in Longview TX, raised by a single mother and living with two brothers, rapper Rawboss born Christopher Ford, would get his name at the age of 13 from his street affiliation. He started out freestyling, battle rapping & self recording himself on cassette tapes as his first taste of the hip-hop culture. Rawboss raps about the world and changes he wishes would happen while trying to shake the street life that he can’t seem to escape. His goal is to be able to promote a positive message and spark minds both young and old as a social activist, along with having people fall in love with hip-hop all over again. He raps with every intention of becoming a household name and to someday be looked at as a role model in society.

We $hare Crowd Funding / 2015 Project Releases

Hip-Hop Artist Rawboss First and foremost, I want to individually thank you for taking the time to hear me out. I am an unsigned hip-hop artist who does everything himself up to this point. I market, promote, advertise, produce, and put in the blood, sweat & tears all alone. Not because I'm a selfish person, but because these days...everybody raps and that's destroyed teammanship. So to speak. I want to let you know that I am as dedicated as they come. On my own I have managed to rise to the #2 Hip-Hop Artist Worldwide on Reverbnation (Home of over 3 Million Artists). I recently had my 1st ever music video done "Pieces (ft. Jael Johnson)", and it has received 2 Silver A&R Awards from Beat100. I have it on my very own VEVO channel (Rawboss VEVO) along with my YouTube Channel (The Official Rawboss). It has debuted on Indi Music TV's Top 21 Countdown at #11 (February 24, 2015), and will be on National Television through 3 TV Shows (TalentWatchTV, Poze TV, & The Chubb Show). I will be paying out of my own pocket to submit the video to MTV within the next week with hopes that Viacom accepts it. The music video is from a single on my album "Rawbaghdad : Dictator of the Nation", which I plan on releasing this spring. Hopefully in March. The video can be viewed here http://youtu.be/2_5ozT8Q_xE. My music is on several online radio stations across the world. XRP Radio, The Quinn Spinn, KSXR XSite Radio Los Angeles, 106.3 Mobile Radio and more. I speak with the host of most of these shows and they help me develop as an artist. I've reached out to so many like minded artist and have featured them to be on my album. You really have to potential to contribute to a great project that has had so much time invested into it. I'm a registered member of BMI and have my songs registered with them. I ilke to do my homework. The things I am saving up for that I will need your help in include : FM Radio Play Campaign ($500) 1200 stations worldwide, 1,000 CD's professionally pressed with 4pg Booklet Inserts $1,000, 25 Project Reviews $500, Marketing through Global Status Music Group $45, 2 Digital Releases + 2 Lifetime Barcodes $100, 2 Music Videos $525 & Custom Clothing $500. This is where you come in. I am really self-investing all I can and at this rate I will not be able to release my EP & Album until the end of the year. I have a job, but it does not pay me enough to invest the way I know can get real results. I am not declaring myself a know it all. I have studied my profession deep enough and developed the connections over a 5 year period to know who to do business with to get heard. Countless people have told me to keep doing what I am doing. Music is my life and more than anything I want to tour the world bringing hope to everyone. I want to be an inspiration to others and get people on the right track. If you need to hear some of my music to be convinced, feel free to go to my website www.officialrawboss.com. Trust me when I say I do not forget where I come from. I plan on keeping my word and making real hip-hop music to restore it where it once was as a respected culture. I hope you can understand me. Thank you for your time & I hope for any contribution Hip-Hop Artist Rawboss Christopher L. Ford If you have any further questions, or simply want to chat my email is rawbigad@gmail.com

First Dedicated Real Music Xchange (FDRMX) Music Video Review

Rawboss speaks the truth in this gut-wrenching music video for “Pieces.” “It is what it is… Life can get the best of you at times, so you gotta take hold of it” are the first words we hear in the video. Jael Johnson delivers solid vocals as she sings “the pieces are falling down.” The color grading of the video gives off a cold and raw feeling. It’s a dark day in Texas, and Rawness begins to rap about issues that we can all relate to: a bleak future, life’s surprises, and the need to change things for the better. There is so much honesty in his lyrics, especially when he raps, “And I’m not doin’ well / I’m going through a spell / I’m not talkin’ witchcraft / I’m talkin’ more like hell.” Rawboss’ talent is both refreshing and pure. While there is so much greed in the world and desire to become filthy rich, the rapper finds that his music and music in general is what life and love are all about. In the end, one just has to let life lead itself. While you take hold of it, prepare for the worst because if you don’t, you won’t be able to get back up. It’s a well-executed video that conveys the message loud and clear not only to the ears, but to the heart and soul.
