The purpose of life is to be. Everything has its place in life, from cows to rakes. But you'd be hard pressed to find a cow that is equally efficient in raking your leaves. I wouldn't ask a cook to paint or a painter to cook, just like I wouldn't draw with a spoon or cook with a pencil. But people are more complex. So the question isn't what's your purpose in life, but rather ask yourself what are you naturally drawn to. What is your duty in life, the legacy that you will forever be remembered for? And you might have more than one answer. Represent- what do you stand for? If you stand for nothing, you'II fall for anything. So many people either stand for nothing, or don't know what they stand for, and just as with currency and anything else in life, the more of something there is, the less value it has. Knowing what you represent is a great way to not only add value to your own life, but to the lives of others as well. So what will your legacy be? What will you be remembered for? As I said before, everything in life has its place. Fortunately, you have the freedom to decide where that will be. The purpose of the human being is in the name itself, to be human. It is outside of our capacity to do otherwise. All you can do is you. And that's something that no one can tell you how to do. I am One who May Ascend, and you can expect me to do just that.
One who May Ascend explains how he got his name and what it means to be "One who May Ascend".
One who May Ascend describes the influence of the Phoenix on his new project, the Fire Mixtape.
As Elevated Mindz, our very aura says something about who we are as individuals – whether you are introspective, kind-natured, fun to be around, wealthy, ambitious, high-spirited etc.
What does yours say about you?
This doesn’t have to be a serious exercise, feel free to answer with jokes, or quirky responses, as long as they’re truthful! I’m just curious to know what people say about you!
Some of you expressed interest in buying a poster of me as depicted below. In agreement, I have decided to comply with your wishes. However, as the development of my brand continues, it has come to my attention that I am in need of a logo, especially in the case of branding the poster. As a result, I have decided to host a logo-making-contest. Third, second, and first place winners with the logo that best represent my image (with respects to the music, as well as simplicity, intrigue, and professionalism) will receive a cash prize, and the grand prize winner will also win some free merch, not to exceed $100, and a free signed poster when created.
Criteria for the contest are as follows:
-Submission must include either "OMA" , the fully title "One who May Ascend" or both
-Key colors can be (but do not necessarily need to include) black, white, gray, and red.
-ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED to firstname.lastname@example.org with title "OMA Logo Submission" & name BY 9 PM SUNDAY, JUNE 29TH, 2014. Winners will be announced the following day.
Everybody represents something, and as I grow and develop as an artist, it is up to me to decide what I stand for.
It was proposed to me that I need a "Rap Crew" name, a clique, or a brand name to show what I represent. After a little brainstorming, I became fond of the idea. From the classic Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Wu-Tang Clan, NWA, A Tribe Called Quest, D-12, Black Sheep, De La Soul, Black Street, The Jungle Brothers, Das EFX, Lords of the Underground, Biggie's "Junior M.A.F.I.A.", Jay-Z's "The Roc", EPMD's "The Hit Squad", Nas' "Queensbridge Militia", Ja Rule's "Murder Inc.", DMX's "Ruff Riders", 50 cent's "G-Unit", Black Moon, The Universal Zulu Nation, The Native Tongues, The Juice Crew, to New School's Cash Money Millionaires, Lil Wayne's "Young Money", Soulja Boy Tell 'em, DJ Khaled's "We The Best", Wiz Khalifa's "Taylor Gang", Tyler the Creator's "Wolf Gang"...etc. The list goes on.
So the question is:
What would be a good "Rap Crew" brand name that would give an accurate description of what we represent?
