Episode 129 with Abebe Lewis
Airing Thursday, November 28th, 2019, at 6:00 PM ET
We’re on Uncreative Radio with Abebe Lewis and he’s predicting a new era for Miami.
There is great power in the spoken word. The right voice, the right message, the right delivery can change history. We’ve seen it happen time and again on platforms as prestigious as the political stage to those as unexpected as the performance stage. And that is what we’re here to talk about today.
We invited Abebe Lewis to the studio to discuss the power of music and the responsibility that too many artists are ignoring.
Turn on the radio and listen to popular music. It’s unfortunate that so many of the artists that are thriving often take their voice and their platform for granted. They prioritize the fast track — a road derived from mimicking a shallow, inauthentic formula — so that they can get rich quickly. In many songs, the lyrics are meaningless, reduced to incoherent rumblings, random obscenities, and other hype-centric maneuvers. Are they fun to listen to? Sure. But what are they trying to achieve?
Abebe Lewis remembers a time when rappers and hip hop artists created music to bring about positive change. He remembers that music was a movement; that lyrics mirrored society; that enlightenment was their architect. He remembers these times. He recalls the artists who led the charge. Hell, he grew up looking up to them; learning from them. His family’s recording studio, Circle House Studios, has dominated Miami’s music scene for four decades. They originated countless hit productions, like the 1987 theme song to Cops and the Bad Boys franchise.
Abebe Lewis was there. His father and his uncle taught him. Music is his life… and the future he sees is getting us excited.
Abebe Lewis is certainly qualified to discuss music and the artists carving out a piece for themselves. So, on this episode of Uncreative Radio, we’re being treated to an unscripted, insider’s look into the contemporary hip hop scene. The world is on the verge of a musical revolution and its origins very well may be Miami.
Join us and Abebe Lewis this Thursday, November 28th at 6 PM to find out what the future may bring.
