[MUSIC] @AntoineEdmonson – ‘#PUTINWORK’ (Prod By Geoh for Chef Music)

In the past year, as I’ve been sharing my weight loss journey with friends and strangers alike, I’ve received a lot of feedback about people being inspired by my progress. However, a good friend of mine was so inspired that he decided to make a song about it. Antoine Edmonson recorded “#PUTINWORK” to tell the story of hard work and the benefits that come along with it. This song will be the feature track from my upcoming mixtape “By Any Dreams Necessary.” Check it out below, and read what he had to say after.

The phenomenon that is Instagram has done two things: 1. Helped a lot of people become famous for their outer appearance and 2. Helped a lot of people work hard to change their outer appearance because of the people who have become famous as a result of their outer appearance.

I am one of those people who is changing their outer appearance. I have two friends, one is a youth pastor at my church, the other is a DJ. Both of them have lost close to 200lbs. They both have accomplished this feat independent of organized health plans.

This morning I weighed in at 182.6lbs. My goal is to be around the 165-170lb mark. I barely have to lose a fraction of what they have lost. They inspire me to not be lazy and fight for my fitness goals like I fight for everything else.

I wrote this song to inspire anyone else who needs a reminder to go hard everyday. Whether it’s the gym, music, sports, or building a family, we won’t see results until we #PUTINWORK.

I hope you live before you die,

Antoine J. Edmonson

Check out this joint from the homie Antoine Edmonson featuring Jasmine Jordan called “Passport” 

December 2012, I went to purchase my first passport. Upon purchase, I realized that it only cost $140. That price point was far less than I had imagined. Had I researched the price earlier, I would have realized that a passport, my ticket to see the world, was $10 less than Jordan’s were when I was a teenager. My grandmother used to gift me $150 three times a year. She would send me to Footlocker to brave the lines synonymous with sneakerhead culture, to buy the latest pair of Michael Jordan tennis shoes. But these weren’t just shoes, these were my life. I placed my life in the hands of inanimate objects. What if my grandmother said “no” whenever I asked for ‘the shoes,’ and saved the money and gifted me with a passport and plane ticket to a foreign country for graduation? What kind of person would I be today?

‘Our Kids Deserve Better Music’ Campaign Presented By @AntoineEdmonson

It’s refreshing to see rappers with a positive message in their music. The artform has been corrupted by the media, as the pursuit of fame and fortune has caused Hip Hop artists everywhere to create whatever it takes to sell records. Antoine Edmonson is fighting to change that, to save the children and give them the positive influence they need. The ‘Our Kids Deserve Better Music’ campaign is to make an ‘album that will create a clean, safe, healthy music industry for our youth.’ Here’s an excerpt from his website:

“Once I came to my senses as a young adult, I decided to be the change that I want to see for the next generation of recording artists and consumers. For the past 6 months, I have been working the album that will create a clean, safe, healthy music industry for our youth. As an independent artist, I finance every aspect of my music career. I have been able to record 44 songs (click here to hear a song I have finished) with money that I saved while working as a campus aide at an elementary school. However, I don’t have enough to put the finishing touches on it that are necessary for it to be a presented in a professional way. So today, I’m asking for your help in financing the remainder of the project.”

Check out the website at http://www.ourkidsdeservebettermusic.com/ to read about his mission, contribute to his album, and/or buy tickets to the show in Los Angeles Sunday, November 17th 2013. Our kids definitely deserve better music, don’t you agree? Leave a comment below!

[MUSIC] @AntoineEdmonson is ‘GOING POSTAL’ and Needs Your Help!

Screen Shot 2013-03-07 at 8.50.11 PM

Ohio’s own Antoine Edmonson launched a kickstarter this week to raise money to fund his next album and needs our help! Check out the passage below, taken from www.imgoingpostal.com or hurry and click the link to make a contribution!

Going Postal: Memoirs of Middle America

As a teenager living in Englewood, Ohio, I did not want to be from the suburbs. I wanted to be like my favorite rappers on television glorifying the life as a drug dealer in the hood; the girls and the money were the most appealing to me. As I matured, I learned that most of those stories were fabricated, but the damage had already been done. I spent 10 years of my life  chasing a lie. So when I picked up the microphone, I made a conscious decision to break this cycle for the next generation.

This Kickstarter will inspire many people.

I’ve been performing throughout the greater Los Angeles area for the past two years and I have met a lot of talented artists who are passionate about creating a music industry where integrity means more than money, but they feel discouraged about the possibilities of their music traveling farther than LA. They feel that there are not people who will support music with a positive message anymore, but not me. I don’t believe that to be true.

Or else, why would you be here right now?!

To some people $114,100 may sound like a lot of money, but it is a relatively small budget when it comes to making a professional album that will touch millions of people. Since we are making this album together, I wanted to be transparent about where the money is going:

Financial Breakdown:

  • Music Video Production- $25,000
  • Music Production (Beats)- $19,000
  • Lodging- $18,000
  • Studio- $14,000
  • T- Shirts- $7,600
  • Graphic Design- $5,000
  • Website Design- $5,000
  • Equipment- $4,350
  • Marketing – $3,000 
  • Campus Events Planning Conference – 2,350
  • Communication Expenses- $1,800
  • Physical copies of album- $1,800
  • Mixing & Mastering- $1,400
  • Buttons & Stickers- $350
  • 5% that Kickstarter takes when you meet your goal : $5,415

Since you have chosen to be generous with your resources, I wanted to make sure that I gave you more of me! I could never express to you how much your support means to me, but I tried my best in thinking of rewards for all the people who make this happen! Some of the rewards available include:

  • EP of 4 songs in which I will collaborate with you on. Taking  your ideas and turning them into music.
  • Spend 24 hours in LA with me
  • I’ll perform a concert in your home + shoot a music video there
  • Private listening party
  • Be a guest hype man at one of my shows
  • Going Postal T Shirt
  • Be a part of the album artwork
  • Behind the scenes footage of the making of the album
  • Free copy of Going Postal: Memoirs of Middle America

We don’t need a record label, or the radio. We need each other! Ten years from now, people will look back and say that this Kickstarter sparked the flame that trailblazed a new generation of artists into the music industry. The youth of tomorrow will be empowered by the fact that they can exist in a world who encourages them to be honest. Gone will be the days when people impersonating artists will rule the radio, and that day starts now!

Please share this effort with EVERYONE you know on every social network that you have! Also, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

I hope you live before you die,

Antoine Edmonson”
