I started The God Degree 33 days ago.
I wanted to release my instrumental album “Found” commemorating the second anniversary of the passing of my son. Essentially this all is another form of tribute to the Young God,
I chose to brand as The God Degree, brain food of the highest pedigree because for those who know. The God Degree is the food. The healthy food. Thus being stated we provide the healthy food for the brain.
Swallow this murder one verse like God DegreeGhostface Killah – Criminology
The older Gods put me on. That’s no surprise kid. Maintain 360 God live prosperous. I’m a child of the Wu. Their music as a child influenced me in many ways.
In thinking of a name to brand the site as I started rapping Wu Tang lyrics when it hit me! I dialed up “Criminology” and there it was.
I had envisioned a website curated from the Black male perspective with writings that people would ingest. At first thought to call it simply “The Food.” That didn’t ring too much though.
And when I heard Ghostface spit the bars “swallow this murder one verse like God Degree” there it was. The God Degree, the food. Brain food of the highest pedigree.
I represent those young, Black and Latinos in the inner cities who have been at the will of society. Guys who everyday don’t have the time to sit and think to type out the realities of their daily existence because the realities of their existences are chaotic. A life I too have lived and know all too well.
Whenever there is a story written about us it is never factually right or even put into proper context. Our voices are never properly represented in popular media. We need a say so.
I feel, for us, with this platform, I can articulate our struggles and present them to the world in an organized fashion.
Peace to the Gods
