First Rap Video on STEEMIT "INTRODUCE YOURSELF" Hugo The Poet

in #steemit4 years ago (edited)

Hey, Steemsters

Hugo The Poet here. I was delighted with the results of my text Steem-troduction post, and I couldn't wait to get stuck in and create some more blog/vlog type posts for you guys.

But I kind of felt I had to wait, and do a proper introduction to my art style for this platform, before beginning to hit you guys up with my albums/back catalogue of videos, and my random thoughts in text form.

So, I had some slivers of time - and stayed up waaaaay too late several nights on the trot - to make this song and video. It's a little rap about me as an artist, and the little that I know about Steem, Steemit, and what makes this social media platform different, and so freaking special.

I really hope you guys enjoy it!

Here's the YouTube link if you prefer (D.Tube seems slow to load... for anyone else?)

Now that this is out, I'm going to commit to regularly blogging and vlogging on this Steemit/D.Tube channel, re-releasing my existing content, as well as launching my future material here before everywhere else online (except Patreon - I'll still preview release it there first of all!)

Thanks so much for your very kind welcome so far. Looking forward to creating more content for you legends.

Much love and (imo the most crucial commodity in human existence)... PEACE!
Hugo The Poet

Very nice.
It shows the power of #steem is for something.
Beat is great and I found a way now to say #steem
S T double E to the M.
Keep on steemin'

ha! nice, man! good way for noobs like me to remember the spelling!

Wonderful video .. well done
Your influence on the community will be through your work regardless of your personality
awesome words thank you for the advices‏..

thanks, sir! much appreciated

To all you discovering Hugo for the first time, I'm proud to not only be a fan but a friend of Hugo. If you liked this, you have no idea what lies in store for you.
If your soul craves intellectual stimulation in the form of rap, you won't be able to get enough of his back catalog. which you can buy here in a non-decentralized way at I suggest starting with the Illusions mixtape and The Glorious Revolution which are unprecedented but don't miss his Science Friction, Unarmed Forces or Medici EPs.
Let these games bring nutrition to your brains.
And because no one else outed him as the formerly the star of Juice Rap News 2009-2015, which is another 35 brilliant performances of timeless current events as characters such as Robert Foster, Terrence Moonseed and General Baxter.
Elevate this dude. We need him!

Ah, brother Ben! Thanks for the super kind words! Much love good sir! Great to know that you're here in this space too! xx

Wonderful video, you kill it. Keep it up

Dude rap about voluntaryism, I wish to see what you can talk about this topic! Great topic! :D

Can you link me to a good article explaining it? Thanks!

We seek governance without government (no double standards or special protections for some) and rules without rulers. Voluntaryists believe in the NAP (Non-aggression Principle) or "Golden Rule" as some call it. You treat others as you would want to be treated, and you never use violence other than in defense. Everything is voluntary and consensual, or it is unethical.

big fan of that Golden Rule. What are examples of this system put into practice? What does it have to say about the existence of nations and national borders? are they an example of defense?

The existence of traditional nations is the antithesis of voluntaryism, as traditional governments are inherently involuntary. Any system of governance that is entirely voluntary can't really be called a government.

I'm sure you've heard of "anarcho-capitalists" before. Ancaps and Voluntaryists are one and the same; Voluntaryist is just a less edgy word and has gained a lot more traction. National borders cannot exist without nations, and nations cannot exist voluntarily. Private property borders, however, would exist and would be able to be defended.

@adamkokesh has a lot of videos on DTube and YouTube covering the ideas of Voluntaryism and is running for the Libertarian Nomination for President in 2020 on the sole platform of dissolving the Federal Government. If you'd like to learn more about voluntaryism, his videos are a great start.

He's trolling people. Even if he got elected, which is a joke by itself, the Office of the President has no authority to dissolve the federal government.

Rulers setup nation states on purpose to maintain their power as an oligarchy. There is no example of a voluntaryist state because no such thing would or should ever exist. Perhaps there will be something similar to a trade free zone or a "city state" for voluntaryists, but it would all be private and without special protections or double standards for some over others.

thank you nice topic

Great intro!! This is so epic!!! Looking forward to seeing what you bring out next.

Thanks! Feeling good about this platform, for sure. Steem on, indeed!

Fucking awesome mate .. what more can I say!

Ah, thanks so much! Mad appreciate you checking it out!

Oh heck yeah @hugothepoet!! That is one way to intro yourself to the Steemians.. woot!! This platform have no idea about the talents & incredible creations you have instore for them! Soo looking forward to seeing you do so well here! Big love, xx

ha ha thanks, Maryse, you legend. Much love to you and youses. looking forward to seeing you soon xxx

Very cool! Welcome to SteemIt. I gave you an upvote and a resteem.

ah, bam! Thanks! That's a huge deal to resteem something, I'm learning. So, huge appreciation! H

Great message, Hugo. Love the lyrics!
Now put some Swagger on it ;)
Greetings from Berlin

ha ha ha! pretty much swag-free zone over here, bro! Much love to Berlin from Melberlin!

Do your thing, Hugo! Respect.
But don't copy & paste Jay-Z anymore, your content is better than that...
So allow yourself to reintroduce the "reintroduce" lyrics ;)

ha ha well, man, I pretty often put in references to other rap lyrics that I like - try and recontextualise whole songs, even. There's a Kanye one in this very song too. So I can't promise there won't be more JayZ... cos he's one of my all-time heroes! But, I appreciate the candour, and I hope you'll always hit me back with more critiques

Your content is worth the attention & it
will be my pleasure ;)
Looking forward to whats next, maybe
i scratch your lyrics one day... who knows ;)
Have a blessed day

Now that's what I call a proper introduction !
Good luck finding your place here on Steemit hugothepoet

Hi, Hugo...very impressed. Awesoooome..Enjoy your time in Steemit.

so far, so awesome! thanks, man!

Awesome! You have such a cool introduction. Great job @hugothepoet.

Glad you dug it, sir!

Nice to meet you. Life imitates art. This platform is a brilliant start needed to bring art back to the hands of people who care. Not this bullshit we see in mainstream that's brainwashing everyone. Real artists are needed here not controlled ones, that's all mainstream has to offer. I look forward to following your work in the future.

Thanks so much for tuning in! Well, yeah, I'm impressed with this platform so far. I think most artists would do very well here, and I'm encouraging all my friends to get involved, for exactly the reasons you say.

We are definitely on the same page. I also encourage people to come here as much as I can. It's a perfect platform for artists.

Very, very nice mate!

I caught it way back when @ausbitbank secured this account for you and checked some of your stuff on YouTube, but I'm so blessed to see you show up here! Excellent song too, you rocked it!

ah, bam! thanks so much! good to finally be engaging properly with this epic platform

ah, thanks so much! stoked you dug it!

This is awesome! So unique - I love it. I also did something a little different for my introduction that you might like to try as well. Check out #twelvequestions

That was awsome! A star in the making. I love rappers. I love eminem. You sing like him too. Simple setup you for these but very effective almost like a pro! I'll resteemit ok?

Please do, sir! as for being a star in the making - I'm very much over the hill... but there's some steem in the old engine yet! And thanks for mentioning Em - one of the all-time greats of the artform!

(Lekker = understood in all 11 languages as Good/Nice!)

This was actually really good! I'll use it to introduce peeps to steemit :)

It is a cool rap. I like hiphop music. I thought that it would be interesting for Japanese steemian to introduce themselves by rap.

I resteemed thsi article. Thank you.

Well done, and welcome to the community!

Not a big fan of rap though, but i need to commend the creativity behind this song and the video. The energy, the lyric and the delivery is super awesome. Believe me i think you might actually spit some bars than Eminem lol. More content bro. HugotheLyricist. I'm a big fan thou

Steem ST EE to M!!! I love it @hugothepoet. You've got some dope flow in your arsenal. I really love that you're not trying. Just giving it! Shoutout homez. Thanks for keeping it real stunner!!

Nice piece, bro.

That's awesome how you tailored your video to the post. You've got a pretty nice shed! @hugothepoet

In one word: "Revolutionary!" You kinda reminds me of Eminem. But, of course your rap is original. Love the colorful steemworks and flashes (get it? STEEM-works, ha ha!). Keep up the good work, @hugothepoet. Thumb-up, bro -- Peace, out!

Nice work mate!

Welcome to Steemit!!!

Bienvenido a Steemit Compañero!

Bless up @hugothepoet! dope intro post btw! we've kicked off a Hip Hop Blockchain initiative.. check out @hhtb :)

doooood that was siiiiick!

Man i loved the rap...completely dope ... make some more raps about cryptocurrencies (request)

WOW!!! I missed your intro post, but WELCOME TO STEEM!! You are the BOMB!!!!!!! Loved the song!!! (going to check you out on youtube now cause I totally recognize your voice and I need to know whyyyy!!).

That was so badass. Yeah, dtube can be a bit of a coont at times (hope I don't get lynched for saying that) but DLive has never failed me once! You don't have to be live, it's a regular uploading site as well as live.

ah, great tip! thanks! So, is there any sacrifice of quality or anything using DLive? Less/More spread? anything else to know? Really appreciate your help!

It is like dtube, you sign in the same way, when you have loaded your video and post it, it goes directly here to your blog.

A lot of people switch it up and use dlive sometimes, and dtube other times. Other people are loyal to one or the other, so it's completely up to you what you choose to do. Both have a lot of steem power and upvote content creators that use their apps.

Also I found where I know you...I had never seen under the disguises before! Wow, a real celebrity of the truth community is here, we are so lucky to have you with us. Thank you for this gift. The song really rocks I've been sharing it everywhere.

Thanks so much for sharing, and this DLive advice! Much appreciated. Happy to be here with you guys! H

Yes, Dlive is the go, and definitely my preference, but seeings as dTube upvoted you so handsomely stick with them (as frustrating as they can be) as they’ll likely keep doing that for a while. Just make sure your YouTube link is included just the way you’ve done it.

You can upload this to Dlive as well, but maybe wait until this post has been paid out. Dlive also give great rewards for content creators that they like.
