Me -Miself- i
In a brief interview with Me -Miself- i regarding his place in the rap game, he quickly let us know that “I’ve been judged, scrutinized, & misunderstood all my life for being Miself. So this music shit is sweet in comparison to everything I’ve been through. If people Love my music or not it doesn’t matter to me because it wasn’t intended for them in the first place. I don’t create music for anyone & I don’t release music for anyone. I only make music for Me & my mom. Meaning if we both Love the song(s), mission accomplished. Why do you think that I’ve been holding on to all of my music since 2018 type shit.”
He continued by adding that ”As a creative I use rap as one of my many mediums. I am not a rapper or a singer, I am a creative. I use melodies & bars as the mediums to express Miself creatively in rap & music in general. The only reason I am releasing my music is because it’s going to be used in a positive direction & hopefully help my people. Double Eye Mag reached out to me & wanted to use it as the soundtrack for their TV show called Celebrity Thrift Störe. Therefore, I am blessed & humbled to know that God allowed me to be in the position to have my music serve a positive purpose & impact people around the world. Lastly, the only reason I snuck in the industry is because I created my own lane through “Neo Melodic Rap” (New Age Melodic Rap). Sneaking in & creating my own lane was the only option I had because I refuse to do some corny shit like copy someone else’s sound/wave to secure deals with labels. Thankfully it worked & I am here to stay, Love.”

What We Created
Instead of disrespectful titles like “Mumble Rap”, we created a title that accurately describes the current state of rap. In terms of the popular use of autotune, 808’s, & rappers who focus more on melodies/singing rather than lyricism/bars. According to Döuble.Eye.Records (D.E.R) the founder/creator of “Neo Melodic Rap (New Age Melodic Rap)” is Wu Tang’s very own Ol' Dirty Bastard (ODB). Ason Unique had no father to his style, hence the name Ol' Dirty Bastard (ODB).
