Fueling Forever: Devine Carama Pushes The Power of Words Through Generations

devinecarama2

With album titles like No Child Left Behind, The Dream Walker, and his upcoming project, Believing in Foreverit’s easy to tell that Devine Carama’s music stands for more than simply putting slick metaphors together. But when you get to not only listen to his compositions, but also watch his actions, you realize that when he stands for something, he moves for it too.

Representing Lexington, Kentucky, Carama, in between releasing The Dream Walker in January and his upcoming effort in October, set up a not-for-profit foundation called “Believing In Forever” with the goal of providing positive outlets for children. Last week he gave away two separate $250 back-to-school scholarships to two middle school students who won his “Stop The Violence” essay contest, and this week Carama delivered a barrage of bars in “Nicest MC You Never Heard About,” the first single off of the project bearing the same name as his foundation.

Carama is a busy man with two 12-year-old daughters, and also organizes several long-running events in Kentucky, but he took the time out to talk to me about the goal and themes behind the “Believing In Forever” organization and album, Worldstar Hip Hop, violence in Chicago, and more.

After premiering the track on the BBC 1xtra radio show, Devine Carama liberates his The Dream Walker single to the world. The message in this one is meeting every situation with love, even when it’s most difficult to do so. The Dream Walker project is dropping at the end of the month.

Devine Carama: “Martin Didn’t Die For This” (Prod. By Raddiculous Productions)

 

Kentucky spitter Devine Carama thinks that while no doubt progress has been made since Martin Luther King Jr.’s death in 1968, there’s still a lot left to be unsatisfied about, and much of it now isn’t just what’s being done to black people, but what black people do to themselves. Check out the video for Carama’s latest installment in his “Music Monday” series, leading up to his The Dream Walker EP, coming next month.

Devine Carama: “Cold Winter Night” (Prod. Sir Flywalker)

Kentucky representer Devine Carama is known to lyrically murder instrumentals and apparently from time to time opposition in a battle as well, but here he smooths it on “Cold Winter Night.” This Sir Flywalker-produced joint is the first in a weekly series that will see Carama drop a track every Monday leading up to his Dream Walker EP dropping late February. Dream Walker will feature production from J57, Well Blended and more.

Devine Carama: “16 Bars In A Clip” (Prod. J-Ideas)

Devine Carama has bars and he also actually has something to say too. As he has in the past, The Kentucky representer speaks out against violence and instead loads the bullets into the mic for this leak off of The Hood, The Holler, which is a compilation of music from Kentucky artists. The compilation will raise money to  fight against mountain top removal in the Appalachia area of Kentucky.

Devine Carama: “Astound Cake”

I don’t usually like to hear a bunch of people rhyme over the time’s most popular instrumentals, and I’d sure heard enough “Pound Cake” freestyles, so I was skeptical about Devine Carama’s “Astound Cake.” Knowing the dope original material he has made me wonder even more why he felt the need to contribute his own freestyle to Drake’s single, and when I hit play I figured out that it was because this beat was meant all along for Carama to absolutely murder this instrumental for over 4:00. Enjoy as I did.
