Introducing Mr.Wondz, one of the dopest up and coming producers on the UK urban music scence, had the pleasure of creating this mural style peice. Based on his indentity and his energy , mr wonds is a colorful creative, but i find a lot of his work to be more than what just hits the surface. I wanted to create a painting that demanded a second look for the producers whos beats demand a second listen!
heres a track he produced for grime artist cadet in 2015 called ‘slut’
“We are all here for a reason on a particular path You don’t need a curriculum to know that you’re apart of the math Cats think I’m delirious but I’m so damn serious That’s why I expose my soul to the globe; the world I’m tryin’ to make it better for these little boys and girls I’m not just another individual My spirit is a part of this, that’s why it’s spiritual But I get my hymns from him So it’s not me, it’s he, that’s lyrical I’m not a miracle, I’m a heaven sent instrument My rhythmatic regiment navigates melodic notes For your soul and your mental That’s why I’m instrumental, vibrations is what I’m into Yeah I need my loot by rent day But that ain’t what gives me the heart of Kunta Kinte I’m tryin’ to give us us free like Sinke I can’t stop, that’s why I’m hot Determination, dedication, motivation I’m talking to you of my many inspirations When I say I can’t let you or self down If I were on the highest cliff, on the highest riff And if you slipped off the side, and clinched on to your life, In my grip. I would never ever let you down And when these words are found Let it be known that God’s penmanship has been signed With a language called love That’s why my breath is felt by the death And while my words are heard and confined to the ears of the blind I too dream in color and in rhyme
So I guess I’m one of a kind in a full house Cause whenever I open my heart, my soul or my mouth A touch of god reigns out.”
This poem by j. Ivy. was recorded on the track “never let you down” on kanye wests graduation album in 2004 .
“the finest emotion of which we are capable is the mystic emotion. Herein lies the germ of all art and all true science. Anyone to whom this feeling is alien, who is no longer capable of wonderment, and lives in a state of fear, is a dead man. To know that what is impenetrable for us really exists, and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, whose gross forms alone are intelligible to our poor faculties – this knowledge, this feeling … that is the core of the true religious sentiment. In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself among profoundly religious men.”-Albert Einstein
Every member of this universe is enrolled in the same life long course, consciously or subconsciously. Their challenge is to perceive their reality,to try make sense of what they can and can’t see. Whether via science, spirituality or etc.
Religion, like education, is merely a form of revision, and a guide to wiser decisions, not a reason for division.
How you live your life is the test. Try your best. If you’re smart, it’ll get easier, before your final destination.
