Lately I’ve been reaching out to local promoters via facebook so I can book show. My efforts have gotten me nowhere. Instead of messaging local promoters and venues, I’m just going to show the fuck up to their door and request a gig. This city sets up events for all sorts of aspiring artist and I’m finding it hard to get a show going.
Either A. I’m not trying hard enough or B. They really don’t wanna fuck with me.
Regardless, I have to get my voice heard because I made the realization that failure cannot be a real option. I don’t consider it real because everyone listens to music. If every human damn near listens to music, then my chances of success are greater than my doubts.
As a side note, shout out to homie with the blond hair at Heine Bros for hooking me up with a cup of coffee. I checked my bank account earlier and noticed I spent almost $60 on coffee last month. I’m not sure if this is an addiction of mine or if it’s because I really like this one chick who works behind the counter. Anywho, kudos to the homie.
Besides the free coffee, I want to do 50 performances this year throughout the Louisville Area. If anyone would like to help please let me know.

Growing older is such a weird thing. I sometimes think back to when I was in Middle school and how simple life was. Now I’m 24 with a job and a rap career that I’m trying to take to new heights and it all doesn’t seem real.
I know for sure a lot of us walk around questioning the purpose of life. Although I don’t have the answer to it, my solution is this.
Let’s all show love and compassion towards one another.
I really didn’t like writing that.
I swear I didn’t.
It’s too cliche and states the obvious here on earth, we’re all evil and suck at being a human. Everywhere I go it seems like we’re all caught up in being the Individual. What I mean by that is we are all tuned into living this life as a human, but more so the ego that drives us. We’re focused on what others think of us, view us, or what they even do to us. The end result causes us to mentally break down and feel alone in this daunting world.
Social media even cuts in to fuck our brains up even more with people taking to instagram to flaunt their joyous lives while some of us sit in a 4 cornered room in the ghetto. Our social fabric is terrible sewn together and all we’re doing is making the situation worse by not learning about one another.
People want world peace and an end to racism but don’t apply the effort to begin the revolution. I mean like what the hell is Black Lives Matter doing other than causing traffic jams? The KKK out here storming the streets beating people. The Police are killing black people like flies. We all talk about these issues but what in the FUCK are we doing?

I must say, this is very inspiring for an artist like me. He has no major label backing him, yet he has a large fanbase and a business model that is currently being tried and tested. I myself have this same goal in mind, being independent and not relying on a major label to push my across the globe as an artist. If Chance can do it why can’t I?
So as I write this I want everyone to know that I, Afrodamus will become the hip-hop mogul that this industry needs. I will become the very root of where inspiration and changing lives will thrive from. I will succeed no matter what and I will make my dream come into fruition and be of this reality.
