Here is more info taken from Irv’s Myspace:
When’s the last time you went to see your favorite artist live and left like “damn, that stage show was the truth”, or “wow his vocals are actually better in person!”? Now weigh it against the times you’ve left saying “I can’t believe I paid 60 dollars 2 watch him hold his nuts and yell for an hour.” That’s just disrespectful to the fans. What happened 2 giving quality product? It all boils down to quality customer service. Im a fan myself so from the albums 2 the stage, I give them that same quality that I would expect. – IRV DA PHENOM’
Soooo, I do music, but im sure u knew that when the song kicked in soon as my page loaded. Yes I rap. Yes I sing as well. No I am not old enough 2 buy liquor yet. I am also a writer…I grew up listening 2 a range of music. The first tape that I purchased was the n*sync single “drive me crazy”. Lol. I then ventured into the world of hip-hop with twista, the wutang clan, and my mentor TECH N9NE. These and many other artists ranging from heavy metal 2 old school soul (it would take me like 12 pages 2 list them all) have molded what I know as GOOD music. My whole outlook on music is called “HUMAN” so when im put in a genre I would prefer that it’s “HUMAN” as apposed 2 hip-hop, soul, or R&B….all of which are a part of human music.
WHAT THE @*% IS “HUMAN MUSIC”?
All right check it out, I think of every thing in terms of music. So during every day of my life, there is a soundtrack going on in my head depending on the situation. So say you just got a raise on the job, which would call for something real victorious, Say queen’s we are the champions, or say your with your lady friend…and trying 2 set the mood, nothing better than some Marvin Gaye. Ok now you have on your new all white kicks at the club and some d-bag blatantly steps on them. Im sure this is a lil john or even heavy metal situation..lol the whole point is as a human being life is bigger than just one sound of music. No thug is a thug all of the time, you cant play ice cube 2 set the mood with your date..Lol! Im also pretty positive that if I where 2 touch al.b.sure’s curl back in the day, he wouldn’t have been so R&Bish So I do them all, and that’s human music.
Ok, I hail from Kansas city, also referred to as killa city (u can guess why) so wit that, there where a lot of opportunities 2 get myself killed or in jail b4 I graduated, but thank god for music, and common sense. Remember the kid back in high school who used 2 sell every known product known 2 man out of his backpack? I mean from honey buns, 2 electronics, even the occasional illegal substances, Yea, well that was me so I guess u could say im something like a hustler. I dropped my 1st cd entitled “U AINT HEARD?” in high school and bought my very first car off of the proceeds. Growing up ive never seen my pops work for anyone…so I guess you can blame him for my work ethic, I had my first job workin wit my pops @ the tire shop movin rims…lol, and im the oldest of 5 kids. So you could also say ive never really had it super gravy…but still I know ive been blessed. All of these things are the reason that I can never, EVER work a normal job, so here I am making this music 4 you.
LOL! Remember on blackplanet when you shouted everybody out?…we should get back 2 that..Lol……………
