My Fellow Citizens:
During these turbulent times in which we presently live it's good to know we can take comfort and solace in things that bring us peace. The most common past-time we universally enjoy is music and since the beginning of time it has proven to be without borders and limitations, transcending all language and age. For billions of us music everyday remains the perfectly consistent go-to escape. It takes just one song, three minutes and thirty seconds for our worries and troubles to become a mere memory.
Over the last two decades music and it's many genres has devolved. It has devolved into overwhelming amounts of unintelligible, mumbling, overly synthetic manufactured beats combined with predictable plots, gimmicks and subject matter. I and many citizens recall a time when music had a deeper meaning and understanding. It was a simple era where lyrics stood the test of time and no ridiculous dance was required for children to learn for a particular song to be considered “hot”. This is unacceptable. Purposeless music has no place for our minds and musical evolution must take place.
We live in a time where the onslaught of police shootings, crime, blind hatred, fear and bigotry are designed to pry us apart thus creating the time for us to come together and unite! I, a determined man, Titus Styles, am running for the position in office to make hip hop great again!!! I believe and know music feeds our thoughts and ideas and I respectfully say "we are severely musically mal-nourished”. So, with your support I will bring forth the changes needed, right the musical wrongs of my opponents and I will once again bring the art-form of hip hop the love and respect it rightfully needs and deserves.
My name is Titus Styles, and I approve this message.
Versatile, traditional, and talented are just a few words to describe Titus Styles. This Detroit native is a master of puns, punch-lines and wordplay. With such an arsenal of skills, Titus has made a name for himself as a talented comedian, rapper and live stage performer.
As a rapper, Titus is passionate about the preservation of rap not only as a genre of music but also as an artform. Titus is a stickler for lyrical content, meaning and impact on his listeners. He delivers lyrics and styles that appeal to both young and old listeners.
Growing tired of the same predictable ideas and subjects, Titus sought out inspiration. Nothing was more inspiring than the 2016 election. Hearing the rhetoric of Donald Trump claiming to "Make America Great Again". Knowing that America was already great, Titus turned his attention to music.
In the summer of 2016, Titus began working on his latest masterpiece "Make Hip-Hop Great Again". The album gives a taste of all things current and from the past. The ladies will enjoy the classic yet unique take on the slow jam "Let's Chill", while songs like "High on You" and "Get em' Hotter" gets everybody bobbing their heads.
