"This is the ballad of the so-called Menace/ The Emperor’s Apprentice / The Good Kid from a Mad City like he Kendrick" - Point Ash "L.O.M.B."
There are literally hundreds if not thousands of hip hop songs that retell gritty stories of crime, struggle, violence and death in Urban communities around the globe. The narrator is normally the hero & the villain by his own admission; not so in the Land of Make Believe. Point Ash rides a haunting melody while injecting heart and humanity into images of people normally “forgotten” by the world around them. This record addresses the issues of today that plague our Inner City youth and calls for a long gaze into the mirror by everyone. There are no heroes…but plenty of room for a true Savior in The Land of Make Believe.
"Miss Gary Indiana stay on my mind/ From breakfast to suppa time/ Our connection so divine / She so hard, but
she so fine/ This is where I learn to Follow Christ me and my Wife"
These are the endearing words of hip hop artist PointAsh, written as a "hood love song" to his hometown city of Gary Indiana. Gary is normally thought of as a wasteland, filled with violence, crime and poverty; so PointAsh and his brother The Sir chose not to highlight any of those very real attributes. What Miss Gary Indiana does, is take the listener on a picturesque journey of laid back 70's funk, blended with soul singers, heavy bass, southern inspired flows and a ready for summertime type of feeling. The purpose of this record is to introduce a beautiful side of Miss Gary and her babies, seldom talked about and rarely seen. This is the home of the King of Pop, This is the Steel City, This is Miss Gary Indiana.
