KWABAD IS Warlord Da Flame Throwa (D.F.T.) The lack of substance and integrity in Hip Hop has become the norm. Weak to Sub-standard lyrics couched in tightly constructed tracks help to pass these offerings as songs. This, combined with unoriginal concepts and images has taken the culture to the level of being a gun clapping, material worshipping, art demising shell. What's missing is it's SOUL! Enter 'THE COMING!' the debut project from Kwabad. With this project, Kwabad combines diverse concepts with captivating tracks that reconnect the listener to the Soul of Hip Hop. Kwabad's formula, if you will, emanates from his attribute Da Flame Throwa (D.F.T.) (Water to Earth, Earth to Wind, Wind to Fire)! Drawing from all of Nature's elements that make up the human vehicle, Kwabad strives to bring forth completeness. 'Lord (as he's affectionately known as by his peers) understands that people are not singular in being, but have different aspects to their personalities. Through the arts of observation and communication, Kwabad has learned that one must be in tune with the hearts and minds of his audience in order to effectively pen flows that headz like and learn to love. He puts this knowledge to use through his music, which tends to spark and vibrate one's various moods. The attribute of Flame, or Fire is fitting of Kwabad, for Fire can be used to Warm: In terms of making listeners feel good about themselves and have fun. Purify: Bring or add more integrity and substance to the culture he lives-Hip Hop. Destroy: The over abundance of lyrically challenged MCs! In creating THE COMING! Kwabad is helping to bring back the essence of the kulture, Spoken Word combined with the flava of tight beats and rhymes introducing his version of HIP HOP SOUL! It's purpose is to provide a substantive balance to the over saturation of unimaginative expressions. The quality of Hip Hop has been taken a beating and has been left scarred and unbalanced. Fortunately, there are signs that it has begun to rise again like a beautiful fiery, no pun intended, Phoenix, showing that it has endurance and staying power. Leading the way are a combination of veteran and new headz that are representin all facets of the culture to the fullest, not just the over exposed one. Part of that Lyric Dream Team is the 'Lord of War - Kwabad D.F.T.!!!
