Paid My Dues Just Like Everyone Else!

man thru hoop of fire






I put the same effort into pursuing my career as I do now with my plight for justice…



so its not just a matter of pointing fingers or expecting someone to hand me something!



I WORKED, WORKED AND WORKED…JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE! 



Paid My Dues



Those in the industry know ‘the game’ and 



how to manipulate situations
so when you 



refuse to dehumanize yourself, they label 



you as trouble. Like animals circling its prey, 



victims are surrounded,
stalked, studied and 



set-up. 



I jumped through all of your fiery hoops but…

NO MORE!


Lovelace grew up in a little house in Detroit, MI

(isolated, separated, under siege and surveiled)













Lovelace graduated from 
Henry Ford High School

 

Although Lovelace was already fighting a system which did not recognize her, she was active in the community. She provided lyrics and vocals for Campaign to encourage supporting local small businesses.



I guess everyone was just there to get what they could on promises because there was no payment provided as agreed. 



Lovelace performed at many talent shows and won.

 

 

 

 

 
 
Lovelace was quoted saying, “The avenues for Detroit area artist aspiring to a professional recording career are changing…”
 
WHO KNEW?

 

I put the same effort into pursuing my career as I do now with my plight for justice…



so its not just a matter of pointing fingers or expecting someone to hand me something!



I WORKED, WORKED AND WORKED…JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE! 

 

 

THEN, I WORKED, WORKED AND WORKED SOME MORE…JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!



I jumped through all of your fiery hoops but…

NO MORE!


When you don’t allow them to take
everything; they label you as trouble. I refer to this as ‘Painting a picture,’
because that is what is done to display you as the culprit. The Deception – It
is definitely an art form.
As the artist, who
you choose to or not choose to deal with determines whether they say that you
are ‘burning bridges.’ This simple phrase is used to justify the artist works
being (figuratively) ‘gutted.’
Anyone who is in a
position can point and say whatever they want about you.
This book
demonstrated the process through the eyes of an Artist suffering from carrying
the weight of the anger and pressure from the world of music. Not everyone
buckles under pressure, not everyone goes insane…some just write a book about
it!

 

I decided that since
I don’t have an army of people behind me and because every door (seemingly) has
been blocked because people have been lying and manipulating, I felt that this
was the only way to defend myself and my actions after twenty years of carrying
the blame. 
 
NO ARMY, JUST ARMED WITH TRUTH!
