First I would like to thank Jesus. Ironpillar born and raised in the streets of N.Y.C. I Started my music career with rapping in Junior High School with my class mates and got positive feedback. I Kept emceeing and djing through out high school. After graduating from H.S. I attended college and studied Music Business. In 2002 I did odds and ends jobs and bought studio equiptment. My first drum machine was a Rowland sp808ex. I eventually went digital when I purchased my first copy of FlStudio 3. I made lots of beats but I started getting better when I studyed to the Alchemist. The way he flips his samples are rediculious, he performes surgury on his chops before sequencing. Yo Alc! Thanks for signing my ASR 10 with Havoc.
In 2008 I started Ironpillar Multimedia. Mobb deep opened up a music studio in my neighborhood and I meet their engineer HiTech. Ever since then I've been recording.
In January 2011 I recorded my debut album "Bread For The Masses", which represents "making diciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19). About six months later I recorded my second album "Illegal Doe" which represents "Such is the end of all who go after ill-gotten gain" (Proverbs 1:19). I am presently recording my new album titled "Pillarz Of Fire".
In May 2015 I produced the "Belly Intro" for Jermin Costor for Billionz Entertainment.
I'm always tring to improve my flow and make new beats. My advise for those who are new to rapping is to "be your self". People will respect you if you don't lie about stuff that you don't do. "Keep it real". Also if you feel that where you came from had an influence on you then "give back to the hood". Give a free "charity" show or invest money back into your neighborhood (who else will). "Give props to the vets", if it wasn't for them we wouldn't be here today. "Be original", if someone did it already then don't bite. Try something new. "Don't be afraid to do you", make your mark.
Like Emenim said "Loose your self in the music". "Be creative", be lyrical and flip crazy metaphores, similies and rhyme schemes. And most importantly "stay away from beefing with fellow rappers", we are all God's children. We're supposed to be living in unity together praying for each other and loving each other, overlook offences and "love your neighbor as yourself".
R.I.P. Biggie and 2Pac and Jam Master Jay etc. etc..
I want to give a shout out to HiTech for helping mold my image and for countless hours of listening to anything and everything that I create and have created. I'd also like to thank my parents for their support and good advise. "The fear of The Lord is the begining of knowledge" Proverbs 1:7, 9:10. To my church family for thier support and prayers. I would also like to thank all my fans for their love and loyal support. I appreciate it. Again I would love to thank my Heavenly Father to whom my songs are made for. Yahohn 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life".
God bless you all, -Ironpillar.
