My Articles & INTERVIEWS

An article that mentions me and features my lyrics

pillowcake.jpg

Swwweeet Dreams.
  Knock yourself dead, with this mouth watering, to die for, treat. Made by Ms. Netty; BKA, Antoinette redwine based out of Riverdale Georgia, who sais she just does this for a hobby. "I enjoy making cakes because you get to be expressive and creative. My cakes start at $40. It depends on how many people you want to feed and how much detail is on the cake".  Creating  so many delicious nouns, you would think this was a full time practice. Ms.Netty, better coined as "The cake boss of Georgia", Specializes in cakes with more incredibly artistic themes however. Careful not to tell you her secrets, she does confess, when questioned about baking two cake mixes  "the extra moist cakes don't support the fondant so I don't use them." One of her latest projects was creating a cake shaped as a european pillow; and it comes in three tiers. With great reviews. "just made me want to eat and then take a nap", sais Czap Nannette, a critic on her face book page. Nettys cakes are certainly a success.

"The key stylers"... Confessions of a teenaged battle king
In 2001, HIP hop had discovered something new. I entered the world of online cyphering, where emcees would go head to head on the mic/ on the NET. Much like cyber sex this was a form of rapping without being in someones face. It had yet to be discovered by the public, and still, it is a very rare practice. I call it Key styling and I take claim to that staple. It all started when I was in computer class in school trying to take advantage of the world wide web, and learn how to type. (LOL, I still cant type) But I learned alot about abbreviations, like OMG and all that. We used to call them URL's and now they are commonly known as blogs. So I entered a URL under the Alias "sTyLeZ"... and I put alot of these internet thugs to shame, because they were really nerds in discuise but it was a ganster that they were putting on. I was able to identify easily who was really from the streets by their conversation, and who was really a geek by their vocabulary. I embarrased the thugs and put shame to many of the intellectuals who took pride in being witty. OFTEN posting statements really abnoxious for the attention, and using statements that were previously posted that contradict who they say thay are... I took it to the extreme of copying and pasting tags, with the hyperlink to the original message.. I was a beast. I then created my own forum RYME TYME NEWS, which competed with the mother board "infamous freestyle", but my forum at first was created to dig the dirt on other cyber emcees, so I can have access to their IP address and really see what they were about and expose them. I found out alot of these guys were white, and some of them were even 13 years old. There was a black guy who used to battle be everyday and I wondered why he was so nice-[meaning lyrically inclined]; turned out he was 40 something and in prison. As my name began to circulate as "the owner" of Ryme tymes forum, I had to change it a couple times becoming ADONIS, and The rest is history (I still cant let these names go sometime). Eventually RYME TYME NEWS was terminated by Network 54 because someone (propably a white kid) used the word nigger on the web page, which is a violation of their policy. I vowed to never let a website get that popular again, without my full control over it.  This played a critical part in why I am both a forum editor, and web designer today, as well as a rapper. And one day I'll write a book on it. Since then I have re- created the URL.. but the traffic is not the same.

She is the QUEEN of the MTA and the GOD mother of soul. Although she is so modest she would never agree. I had once quoted that she made Aretha Frankin sound like a leaking faucet. A true testament to the UNDERGROUND ARTS, she has been on NYC theater stages, and has had a tremendous amount of work in the musical arts. Despite all of her success she is always compelled to come right back into the train system and sing for those who love her most. Often attracting tourists and stragglers who will hang around for hours to see her perform. "God put me here" she often sais when she is asked why she has turned down so many "great" offers in music and entertainment. She finds a unique kindred with the people of the streets, frequenting Herald Square on 34th street, many times she has performed miracles in the form of a voice. And till this very day is the only artist I will BOW down to when I am in her presence. She is Alice Tan Ridley, the Greatest street performer in the history of all time.

If you thought you were impressed by the creations of the REAL ADONIS, wait until you see what his little sister has in store for the world.. HER life, Her Legacy, coming soon to POLYSTYLEZ.com 2015

The Brilliantly, Bizarre, Baptist, BOMB SHELL!!
Her storm, Her test

 There's something about Shelle!
I met Shelle (pronounced SHELLY) when I was a sophmore in Highschool. People would always talk about her so she was quite infamous; but not as popular as I thought. any one who knows me well knows that I always look for something odd about you before I find a "liking", and I absolutely hated people who were a part of a team or club. We met in a mutual class after school where I began to question her with a line of judgments. It was only after she divulged her conviction to the lord and how she was remaining a virgin that she became a subject of interest to me. I laughed so hard, not because of my distain for "christians" but because we went to a school where you could catch an STD from conversation..I thought "this girl is either crazy, or a bold faced liar". Turns out she was crazy. Over the months to come I had realized that we lived in the same neighbor hood, and quite like myself, Nobody liked her. Eventually we  started catching the same bus to school. We sat all the way in the back every afternoon on the way home, and spent most of that ride picking at any and everything we were not fond of. Everyday was "happy hour" on the way home and we could always find something to talk about. Noone objected our conversations. Noone contested. Bus #551 belonged to us. But Shelle was often haunted by something I never had to deal with; Her battles with pleasing others and it became a true testament to who she is today. Shelle was dating, possibly one of the most handsome boys in school. Tall, brown, athletic, friendly and popular. I used to regurgitate when she said they would get married. "Shelle he is not in to you", I said before the book came out. As it turned out, he was totally in to her when they were together and totally in to every one else when they were not. When she finally told me about their break up a year later I was proud to know that I WAS RIGHT....and that she was strong enough to break it off. But that wouldn't be the end of her battles with approval. During my senior year at the beginning of the school year everyone was voting for who they wanted to be home coming king and queen. Shelle insisted that I vote for her as the junior queen, claiming she deserved it. As disappointed as I was to know that she cared, I figured it made sense, because everybody knew who she was. As I sat back and thought of all the funny people to nominate... I could just hear the popular names fly by. Shelles name never came up. and I knew that no matter how many times she was nominated, she could never win because she just wasn't liked enough. Shelle and I spent time conversing about our interest in music back when I thought I was going to be signed with SONY records...LOL We came up with a hot song idea and I began the writing process. Soon she started hanging with uperclass men and people who were amused by her individuality and spunk, but chose to break her down negatively. Every day she was getting in confrontations, and fights. I would often ask "Where is the sweet little christian shelle I used to know that had such a bold take on challenging the norm"?. She was gone. Shelle had become the norm. Often we would get in arguments where I had to remind her who her true friends were. Chosing to stick it out with the friends that would constantly betray her. She had to learn the hard way. When I discovered Shelles dark side, that her environment had created, I wrote one of her first songs to channel her anger through. It became one of the biggest hits on her first Gospel album that she had recorded and been performing live since 2003. And with every storm, quiets the rain. She has now found herself in a comfortable place, with a real husband, family and friends.

 
   

HECTIC "Da backpacka" ONE
The RISE of an EMPIRE; CCS productions

www.polystylez.com

If there is anyone in the game more deserving of HIP HOP recognition It is Joe COX, the infamous HECTIC one, better known as Da Back packa... and if enough isn't said, just explore my website for his music beats. Some of my best collaborations were recorded, produced, mixed , and lyrically featuring HECTIC one (da back packa). RIFF RAFF productions is the name that speaks for his instrumental EMPIRE.
In 2003 I went through a state of homelesness, In and out of rooming houses and low paying jobs, I stayed true to my music, keeping a journal with me at all times. The day I met the infamous Hectic ONE, I was on the MARTA Train system, helping a woman who was sick, move to the front of the cart, to get the attention of the train conductor. I illegally walked her through the train doors of each car until I stummbled across a group of black hippies, (Joe was one of them) "you do music"? he asked. I said "what makes you say that"? He pointed to my note book with art work sketched on it. We exchanged information and I spent about 3 weeks trying to follow up. Finally he called me back and we scheduled our first collaboration which I was hesitant to do, after all of the loop holes I had to go through. he was living with family at the time and I was on the streets, but I never told him about my quality of life issues. My first thought was to not take him serious after he walked me through a crowded neighborhood of people to get to his small studio apartment in north Atlanta. I tried to hold back the laughter when he showed me a key board and a kitchen table as his work space. He told me that he had been doing music since he was 19 --and I had just turned 19. Just as soon as I began to look at my watch, I heard these voises chanting, and a beat booming, and a set of drumps drilling in my ears, and then a melody dropped, and so did my jaw. I was standing in front of the best producer I would have ever known to that day. Instantly i knew that I could make money off of his talent, and fund my career at the same time. We freestyled a song "NOBODY to LISTEN" where he lyrically anhialated me, after being inspired by a conversation about our similar starving artist life styles. From one day to another, we bonded. I began bringing him customers, as I had already been working for Sound Quest studios where I was promoting for the owner and collecting on free studio time; I thought, why not give that business to JOE, who had not yet become "the back packa" he is now. I began creating generic flyers advertising "affordable studio time", and passing them out at the local colleges, so he can make enough money to claim his independence. I didn't ask for anything in return because I had bigger plans for his talent.One day some girl scheduled an appointment and during one of her follow up visits tried to  develop a relationship with him knowing he had a girl friend; then the girl began to call his crib and stalk him. That's when I knew that no matter how talented he was ... Noone would respect his situation because of how he was living. One day I took him to see my friend ALI, who had the studio apartment that I had been promoting for in doraville. I brought Ali alot of customers and he was grateful; but he was about to be replaced by HECTIC one. Ali used to work with Bairut productions and had began to manage a succesful business from home with his wife and 3 year old daughter. I wanted Joe to see how it was done, before I exposed to him my plans for his future. That day we recorded "Hip hop investigation" in Ali's studio (soundquest) a two verse song where Hectic anhilated me on the beat once again. To me everything was about business and to him it was about the love of the music.  That formula made us  $800 a week when we opened up our own studio in Alpharetta on a $99 dollar deposit into a luxury apt. But first i had to convince him it was right. One day I was back at his crib playing Dragon ballZ, and eating pizza, when I broke the news to him. "I WANT TO OPEN UP A STUDIO, AND I WANT YOU TO DO THE BEATS"...  On the first night we celebrated our success with the popular song "Don't make me rob you", from a beat he drummed up in like 10 minutes. We called it CCS sound labs, and Over time we created a medley of super HITs that would never be digitally released until today. With our main focus being the studio and it's clients, we came up with a list of simple rules that would ensure our success (NO furniture, no food, NO friends, no Free-bes, no fun, and NO GIRLS) We broke every rule! CCS is still in existence today, THANKS TO ME! And I still ask Joe about it some times. Over all, it has been the best time of my life and some of the wildest memories... details when I write my first book!! LOL. To contact CCS recordings visit HECTICS music page at RIF RAFF productions, on Life as the Real ADONIS and be on the look out for our collaboration album coming soon!!

I love this guy, its real hip hop with no additives. You know he is talking about some real shit when you listen. And the beats are on another level. Although he doesnt produce every track, you would think he demanded to work with nothing but the best. His name is J. nolan and you can expect a whole lot more from this break through artist.

PROFILES & Biographies

Charlie Mac recorded one of my first demo projects including "LOVE CHAMPION", which was dope but never finished...(it was sung to the rocky theme song-beat) the "POLYSTYLEZ anthem" which was then known as a song called "Verbal rabidity", a freestyle comparing how sick I was, to the disparity of a dead rodent (words have changed over time); And Some of my more controversial tracks "The Truth", and  "Sarah Syphilis" came later along, when he moved his studio from an art garage to a more homely environment, where I felt more comfortable with unleashing my inner strengths. It was then, I was honored to shake hands with professor Griff, whom I was told later appreciated my lyrical skills. although most of those tracks are now hard to find, Charley Mac keeps a tough archive. And even though he never produced a track for me, his production inspired me to evolve my style from ordinary to abstract, reinforcing my title as POLYstylez.

Cecil
I met Cecil weeks before I was to leave to north Carolina in the fall of 2010. Cecil is very friendly and social.... But personal and work oriented, as it shows in his passion for detail. Working in the studio with him is like a vacation on the Bermuda triangle. (when you get back home it feels like eons have passed by) We met while I was cashing a check from the Guitar Center, after trading in my classic baby blue fender, known as the Evis. given to me by Anthony Valez. He told me where I should go to get more money but I was in a time crisis, and I knew the Guitar center would let me buy my guitar back.-----> It sold the next day. (one of my first mistakes he warned me on) The next week I bought a cheap guitar to replace the old one and was passing by 6th ave as he was conversating with another producer about music and he noticed my guitar and remembered me from the check cashing center. Being an expert he wanted to know all kinds of stuff I couldn't answer, like what the model number was and how it was tuned...LOL. After I finished listening to him go over my head with knowlege about everything industry related, as we sat in the park vibing about old school...It began to get cooler and seemed like it was going to rain. he advised me about the wood in the guuitar, and suggested I should puty it up. I told him I didn't care about a little rain or how the weather is good for the wood or not...(second mistake) he just grinned like a psychologist would do to a patient after he left the room) I walked away feeling like I had aged seven years. (Bermuda again..) We agreed to working on an E.P. together which consisted of 3 of my newer songs at that time, not even copy written, but more than eons would have to pass by before we recorded because my new Guitar broke the very next day. (That was one of the last times I would ignore his advice) Finally we managed to link up and record 3 songs in one day. He tried his best to give me true production, even suggesting the morachas...LOL but I was stubborn about the sound that I wanted which was a pure vocal and acoustic combination. I didnt want drums or anything...I wanted this to sound just as my fans have heard it in the train, Just Me and the guitar. I had no idea how much time could actually be focused on mixing vocals; I guess that was all he had to focus on since I only wanted a one track folk album. The better my voice sounded as he mixed that one song in 45 minutes and I had to beg him to stop, or we would never go the next song. After listening to me strumming and abrubtly ending a formerly untitled track, he then said to me "You kind of end this song unresolved" ...and instantly he had named the song for me because coincidentally, the lyrics were about a relationship unresolved. It was perfect- and I wasn't going to let another one of his omens pass by. All of these occurences happened in less than a month before I went to North Carolina but it felt like years in the making. It was really a spiritual experience. (Cecil is a true Perfectionist and he takes pride in his work)...And for the record he was also right about the instrumentation because everyone sais it needed a drum line or something. Contact me for his RESUME if you need real engineering. (serious inquiries only).

 WHO is Tela Hubbard ?
by: BE., Steffan Sylvers (The real Adonis)
I met Tela when I was around 20 years old (im still 20...lol) , she would always be doing art work outside of lenox mall in Atlanta. I stopped sometimes to give her a few dollars and she would just look at me with a soft but uninviting smile. This is when I realized she was NOT homeless,  but just passionate. And clearly she did not want to be bothered. Their would be droves of people passing by this corner on lenox, going to work or shopping. Some people would just stand around and watch her finish a piece; it was amazing, but noone would have a conversation. One day I begged her to come to an art show that I had hosted at the Atrium. It was like pulling teeth to get her to say "okay". It was on a tuesday night and promoted very poorly, so the audience was slim. Tela wasted no time gathering her things and going back to the prominent Buckhead, Atlanta location she was so comfortable with. Obviously she got more attention on the streets than in this quiet  little hole in the wall. But the location was not important. what you thought of her wasn't important. It was merely the comfortability of her environment as an artist that made her decisions and nothing can compromise that. More than 5 years later I would discover this myself being a street performer in New york city; what an artist was. Tela is still on the underground art scene somewhere but she is not crazy about your attention.

This is YURBY

yurby.jpg

Yurby actually discovered me on the train in the summer of  2011, while I was singing one of my folk songs on 14th street. She left me one of her business cards after listening to a few of my songs and i was not able to get in contact with her one way or another. So I posted her business information on my blog which reaches close to 1ooo subscribers. I consider it my gift to all the people who listen to me on the train. About a week later I ran into her at The Guitar center of all places, and she's like "you never called me". we shared info again and this time I stumbled across her information on my face book -blog, that I had posted weeks before. Now I have discovered she is a SKETCH ARTIST and painter. One of my favorite forms of ART, in addition to being a musician herself, and she modestly speaks. Visit her web site, read some of her lyrics and view some of her paintings.. a true prodigy and another part of my Bizzarre collection of favorites.
