What if you could be anyone in the world for a day...? Who would you be? Would you choose to be a King of your own country, a war hero, a famous gangster? How about a saint, great musician or activist? Maybe you would want to be all of those or perhaps none at all. Maybe you would just want to be... YOU! Well, A.L.I.A.S., the latest underground hip-hop lyricist sensation, has changed many faces throughout his lifetime. Like a nomad, he has traveled since birth to many different places and like a chameleon has always adapted to his environment. Now he has come to share those travels and his story with the world! "The World Ain't Ready! Chapter I: Rise to Power" is the first album in a 5-part series and is his premier debut! This is a story of worldly ambition versus spiritual enlightenment!
A.L.I.A.S. is an acronym for "Another Life Is Another Story." The meaning behind the name is a metaphor for the many walks of life that A.L.I.A.S. has experienced. Everything from being born and raised in the ghetto of the South Bronx, McKinley Projects to the once racial suburbs of Miami; from hustling, robbery and a life of crime to straight "A" student graduating Salutatorian; from the hood life to obtaining a Bachelor's Degree and being a Naval Officer; from conscientious-slumber to spiritual-awakening; all display the complexity of this artist and the many conflicting personas of his life.
A.L.I.A.S. essentially means that you should never judge a book by its cover. Each of us in life have our own paths & journeys to travel. Never question the next man's life unless you've walked in his shoes. We are all "works in progress!" A.L.I.A.S. has tread many paths but has not yet reached his destination. Some stars are made... some stars are born! Is it free-will or destiny? Do we chose or are we chosen? This is a question that can not be simply answered. But when you have the yearning inside those who feel it are compelled to answer! Next up to the mic is A.L.I.A.S.! We hope that you enjoy listening to the beginning of a saga. Time will tell where it takes us. "The World Ain't Ready! Chapter I: Rise to Power" is the commencement ceremony of a masterpiece culmination of a lifetime of experiences set to urban music. There is something for everyone to relate to. Sit back and enjoy the ride! The world ain't ready... Are you?
