Gossip, Gossip, Gossip by @queentheprophet

Gossip is defined as casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other people, typically involving details that are not confirmed as being true. Nine times out of ten, gossip starts with what one person thinks, feels, or perceives then passes it on. Have you ever played the telephone game? You tell the person next to you something and they whisper it to the person next to them and by the time it gets to the last person the message is something else entirely. Many of us (myself included) have either participated in or been a victim of gossip. Although there are folks in this world that have become rich & famous just because they spread gossip.

Gossip is one of the most destructive forces in the universe. You’re probably wondering, “if it’s so destructive then why do so many people do it?” Well, it’s like anything else. Just because a lot of people do or say something doesn’t make it right. Cigarettes are legal although they’re known to cause cancer, alcohol is legal to be served at most dining establishments although drinking and driving is illegal and the list goes on. It really boils down to personal choice and morals. What kind of person are you? What kind of person do you want to be? Do you want to be a person that lifts others up or tears people down? “A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue. A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret” (Proverbs 11:12-13). The Bible tells us that “a perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends” (Proverbs 16:28).

Fam, we have got to be more careful. We can think we have the facts on any given situation and still not have the truth. We live in a day and age of the “screen shot” and “copy & paste” (which means people can alter information before you see it by only showing you parts of a conversation) so the truth of the matter is? Unless you were there personally? You really don’t know the truth and nine times out of ten? It’s not even your business or a matter that you should even be speaking on unless you’re praying because not only can you hurt someone but you may also end up loosing friendships or other relationships due to assumptions made from gossip. I remember when I was in school, gossip normally came to you because somebody told you. In today’s day, you normally find out about a rumor because somebody posted it on the internet.  Have you ever heard the saying “misery loves company”? Well it’s absolutely true. When one person is miserable, they tend to attract other people desiring to also be miserable.

You’ve also got to protect yourself. Your eyes and your ears are the windows to your soul. What comes out of you will only ever be what you put in. There is a whole lot of garbage that flies around our eyes and ears, especially on the internet. Sometimes even if it’s not posted by someone that you know personally, having a mutual person in common may cause some utter trash to fly through your timeline. Believe me, I know. I recently deleted my personal Facebook page (my artist page is still in tact for business purposes) simply because I was sick and tired of all the garbage my eyes had to pass to even get to what I was on for in the first place. The truth of the matter is, the sinful nature of the human being always first sizes up “better than, less than”. It makes people feel better about themselves to deflect what’s wrong with them, if they’re busy pointing out what they think is wrong with you. If they can get enough fingers to point at you? They feel much safer about their deeds, personal insecurities, and flaws becoming exposed. Every single person walking this earth has deeds, insecurities, and flaws the only difference is, some of us have learned to accept the fact that we have an all loving creator that even on our worst day, loves us unconditionally anyway. Once we get secure in this truth? We can start working on ourselves and are okay with being a constant work in progress no matter what other people may say or think. The problem with most people is they’re scared to look at their own flaws and imperfections and instead opt to just live a life explaining why someone else always did something to them and they pretty much just continue on in their miserable, depressing existences trying to discredit others so they can “feel” better about themselves.

What we have to keep in mind though, is “hurting people, hurt other people” plain and simple. No normal, emotionally stable person intentionally tries to hurt other people, that doesn’t even make any sense if you think about it. We can’t control other people, at best we can only hope to control ourselves which includes the way we respond and receive information. Anyone that is close to me and has had one of my famous “QTP lectures” can attest to my famous saying “don’t get upset when someone calls you something you’re not”. I know it can hurt, but we’ve also got to realize that we can be in control about what we actually receive into ourselves and quite honestly if the other person or people involved don’t have an actual heaven or hell to put you in? Don’t worry so much about it. They talked about Jesus, so best believe they’re going to talk about you. Guard your heart and guard your spirit and you’re not a trash can so don’t let people dump garbage on you.

Exclusive Interview with @miverson_ #GGO #RI #WitnessTheStrength 3/12/15

10991046_784959664875130_4059426231524131598_n

Since the release of “Witness the Strength” is only a few days away and it’s been about 2-years since I’ve chopped it up with Hell Razah Music, Inc. /GGO Producer Miverson, I figured we were long over due for a “sit down” (digitally speaking of course).

10292545_765890273448736_3022269934732935767_n

QTP: Boss, Boss, Boss… It’s been about 2 years since we last sat down to chop it up interview style. How have you been & what’s new in your world?
MAV: Wow, really 2 years already, time flies when your working hard. I’ve been great thank you. Just been really working on this project as well as others for 2015.
QTP: Your project “Witness the Strength” is finally ready for release and will be dropping the 12th of this month. I don’t think most people realize how long a production project can take or all the work that goes into a MXTP or Album release. You want to shed some light on the amount of work you put into this project?

MAV: You ain’t lying. Honestly I thought I can get a few tracks and just release. That was not the case what so ever. I realized that I have a great opportunity here so I wanted to take my time putting it together. It took almost 3 years for WTS to be completed and up to my standards. Now I can finally release it and be satisfied.

QTP: Is this your first full production project that’s featuring multiple artists?

MAV: Not my first fully produced project, but its my first fully produced project featuring multiple artists.

QTP: What other projects have you done in the past year or so that features your production?

MAV: I recently released “TheyDontHearMeTho” which is a project that I fully produced featuring Fes Taylor. I also have a joint project that i fully produced with a Nebraska rapper by the name of Strive and that project is called “FeedMeMo”. You can find all my projects onwww.DatPiff.com

QTP: What’s the artist line-up look like for WTS? Who can folks expect to hear artist wise and is there a hosting DJ?

MAV: Let’s see I have Razah on the intro and a track ft. Jahmal, you QTP, Automatik,
iNTeLL(Son of U-God), Fes Taylor, Stealf Bombz, Ruthless Bastards, Stumik(of Ice-Water), Mic Check, just to name a few. I also have a few local rappers. Overall I think the line-up is great. I was thinking of having a DJ host it but It didn’t work out that way, so maybe next time.

QTP: Now that the project is release ready, are you happy with the end result?

MAV: Happy is an under statement! I am really excited, ecstatic and nervous.

QTP: Is there any significance in the chosen release date?

MAV: Well I had a few dates to choose from and the date that stood out of course was my Birthday. So as a gift to myself and my fan base I picked March 12th. Can’t get any better then that!

QTP: Where will the project be available for download?

MAV: It will be available on Www.DatPiff.com for free download.

QTP: Are there anymore projects that you’re working on? What’s next?

MAV: Yes I have a few projects lined up. I have a project with Automatik Greatness (InfoWarz), the project that you and I are working on (No title yet) and if WTS does well I might have Volumes of it.

QTP: I have to say for me  personally, the chemistry that you and I bring together on tracks is something that I know I don’t experience with every producer. Every track we have released so far has been received well by the listeners, and as an Artist I know there is just such a significant difference in the music when a producer is sending you beats versus the beats a producer makes for you specifically. Our last release “Q.T.P.” I remember I didn’t even like the beat at first until you told me to listen to it again because the beat sounded like it was saying “QTP”. What is it like for you as a producer? I know you have great chemistry with Automatik Greatness, but do you get to experience that every time you work with someone or is each person different?

MAV: Yes you and I have been putting out that FUEGO lol. Chemistry is definitely there. As for other artist chemistry is there as well, I have a hand full of artist that I have an idea what they like so it makes it easier on both parts. Like Fes Taylor, you mentioned Automatik and iNTeLL (Son of U-God) & yourself.

QTP: What is the most challenging part about working with artists?

MAV: I would have to say time. Everybody lives their seprate lives so I can’t always expect someone to drop what their doing to do a track for me. Other then that I think I’m pretty good shape when it comes to collaborations. I am a very patient person so that helps with my music.

QTP: What is the most challenging thing you’ve done as a producer thus far?

MAV: Getting Witness The Strength where it is now. I’ve come a long way Queen, I remember sitting there making music for fun then one day it all turned around in a blink of an eye. Now I’m sitting here waiting for a release on a project that features artists like Razah, Fes, QTP etc. Its truly a blessing.

QTP: If you could work with anyone in the world (living or deceased) who would it be and why?

MAV: Damn, I’m stumped. I would say RZA only because he is the reason I produce. So to have him on a track produced by Miverson would be sick. Of course GZA, Masta Killa, iNS, and a few other cats from my era. Nas, Jay-Z, if Big L was alive him as well. I’m willing to work with anyone though, I don’t discriminate.

QTP: Boss, where can folks find you on your social media handles?

MAV: -Instagram @MiversonMav
-Twitter @Miverson_
-YouTube @Miverson27
-Facebook @Miverson27
-SoundCloud @Miverson

QTP: Is there anything else you want folks to know?

MAV: Just a quick thank you to all the artists that helped me put this together. It wasnt easy but its DONE! Also be on the look out for more Miverson production in the near future. With that being said, Queen I appreciate you taking time out of your busy life to sit and have an interview with me. I also want to thank you for all the support you have giving me throughout the year. You have helped in so many ways. Peace & Wingz Up!
