February Futures Volume 10: Fate, Al-D Words, & Milk-Crates

 

The goal of February Futures Series is to kick a steel-toed hole in walled-in minds that don’t see the beauty all around them. The leadership opportunities surrounding us in 2018 are multifarious and limitless! Can you dig it? I mean CAN you dig it?!

Nashville Recording Artist and Activist, Al-D Words – Meant For The Milk-Crates 2017

Hip-hop has touched every corner of this round blue and green ball and the turquoise dust clouds are mushrooming and perfuming our universe with the illest of sounds in 2018. Even the most snobbish of music snobs have to realize their current angst with Grammys, Oscars, and other rusty music institutions is only because of the onslaught of incredibly good music! It’s safe to say the frequency has shifted and at least today’s hip-hop is more reminiscent of the Golden Era than the last 2 decades.

s-l225    What happened to the moans and groans of music not being the same anymore and nothing good being on the radio? They were replaced with complaints about our favorite artists not receiving recognition from institutions that have historically devalued creativity that isn’t… beige. But since when has Hip-hop not taken care of its own?

AL-D (by Chris Scruggs)Albeit, the Source Awards were a tad violent, but it was also a shining example of how we can honor our own. CNN rapper, Nore, created Drink Champs for that specific purpose and others are championing the way alongside him and co-host, DJ EFN.

Nashville recording artist and activist, Al-D Words keeps the tradition of facilitating healthy environments for heads to polly, party, and pay homage to hip-hop heroes. Nashville, Tennessee isn’t the most frequented hip-hop destination on the map which is why Meant For The Milk Crate is fated and necessary. A monthly emcee fellowship with a healthy presence from dynamic DJ Vamp, Meant For The Milk Crate, has become a quaint staple in Nashville’s music fabric.

“I’m a creative because I love music.  The power of words and sounds to change the way people feel is fascinating to me,” says Nashville true MC Al-D Words in a recent exclusive TBFS interview.

He continued, “If it wasn’t for hip-hop, then I wouldn’t have found all the other music that I discovered exploring the original songs that were sampled by hip-hop producers or the songs that I later discovered looking for samples when I was producing my own beats.”

aldad     We couldn’t agree more which is why Al-D Words is featured here in the 2nd annual February Futures series for his initiatives to not only safely house hip-hop but provide a haven for gifted artists to explore their craft. Al-D, along with rapper E.T. Got Soul, also host the weekly Fringe Radio Show on WRKN in Nashville. Tune in every monday at 6pm Central on 103.7 FM WRKN.

“I’m all about enjoying life.  If you are too focussed on being “successful” in creative pursuits, then you can lose sight of their true purpose,” concluded Al D. Follow Al-D’s leadership journey through the links below and keep tuned for more February Futures series 2018!
