Raps Brave Warrior–Chill E.B.

Chill EB cover

Chill E.B. Rocks the World with Message of Truth–An Exclusive Interview

–By Bruce Edwin

To those who say that music is unimportant to life, let them try live without out it. Music touches the soul. It is the heart of a nation, a city, a scene, or an individual. Nations have ‘National Anthems’ that lift up countries in efforts at patriotism. The most important landmarks of life or the remembrance of life are commemorated with music at marriages, funerals, peace marches and victory parades. Music can bridge colors, races, creeds and lands.

It can lift up the soul and bring happiness like few art forms can. Music is the heart of worship among countless religions, the bond that binds groups in unity, victory, and love. Music is not merely important to life, music ‘is’ life, and without it, life itself would be near meaningless; a mute player, yearning to sing, stumbling through a silent land of light and shadows.

The Power of Rap

One of music’s greatest powers is the power of change through the message of ‘the word.’ The musical genre known as rap gave rise to its greatest stars when its artists were the bravest, speaking out against racism, poverty, discrimination, police brutality, slavery, and more. Of the small handful of rap pioneers that escaped the underpinnings of drugs, gang violence, and misogyny in their lyrics or life, perhaps only three such acts remain; Public Enemy, M.I.A., and Chill E.B.

FRANCESCA

Dropping on the world a myriad of powerful new singles with a unified message, Chill E.B. infuses politics, social commentary, and human rights into his message to help galvanize a new generation to seek better education, take direct action, and institute positive change.

Human Rights Activist

Chill EB. The Hollywood Sentinel

Trailblazing rap artist, actor, humanitarian, community activist and youth advocate, Chill E.B. has the unique gift that a select few artists have; a powerful, galvanizing voice, a strong, poetic, lyrical creation, and a musical mastery of the songwriting field. With this unstoppable combination, he has been jet setting around the world, literally, for the past several years, tearing up stage after stage, in front of hundreds of thousands with his message of truth and hope.

Born in Jacksonville, North Carolina, Chill E.B. spent the majority of his early childhood in Germany. Just following high school, he served in the U.S. Army. At an intimidating 6 foot 5 inches tall, the United States Veteran later received a basketball scholarship to Lon Morris Junior College and East Texas State University, which he accepted.

Prove It!

While attending university, he had a role in a theatrical play called “Judgement Of The Troublemakers.” Screen legend James Earl Jones who was in attendance, and was moved by Chill E.B.’s performance. Mr. Jones encouraged him to continue to pursue the arts further, which he wisely did.

After a few semesters Chill E.B. moved to California. Soon after, he released his first single “Freedom” on an independent label. He received national attention in 1992 with his video “Menace To Society”, which was played on rotation across American television screens (BET, Video JukeBox and California Music Channel).

Menace to Society

Chill E.B. was inspired to write his defiant song “Menace To Society,” when he heard a tragic story about a 13 year old boy who dealt drugs to help feed his mother and sister. In the year 1993, Punk rock legend Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedy’s heard Chill E.B. at a gig Chill E.B. played at. Jello soon thereafter released Chill E.B.’s 1st EP, entitled “Born Suspicious,” on Alternative Tentacles Records. Chill E.B.’s songs were also placed in motion picture films and T.V. shows including “NBC movie of the week Father & Son,” “Dangerous Relations,” “Nash Bridges,” and “Harts of the West” on CBS, among more.

Chill E.B, also an accomplished voice over talent and screen actor, then recorded the theme song for the Golden State Warriors “Don’t Stop The Noise.” He appeared in the Warner Brothers movie “Mad City,” and on National commercials including those for Sega Genesis, The San Francisco Giants, Partnership For Drug Free America, Nike, Nickelodeon, and the National Basketball Association, (NBA), among more. He most recently was hired to create the hit “Oakland Raiders Theme Song,” titled ‘Raider Nation,” for the 2015-2016 season.

Y’all Busted!

In 1994, Chill E.B. took a break from recording to start a family, returning later, with a fury. In 2008, he created his own record label; Kathartic Music Group, and in 2010, he dropped on the world his controversial single titled “Y’all Busted,” a damning indictment of the psychiatric industries greed, corruption, and abuse.

Define Better

His next searing hit single, “Define Better,” continued his theme of confronting crooks, con artists, and killers in the psychiatric industry head on, challenging the billion dollar industry to explain mental labels and their so-called ‘cures,’ that are created anew each year. The undeniably great song commanded headlines around the world. A-List stars John Travolta and Kelly Preston even showed their support by putting Chill EB’s video on their websites. A flurry of newspapers around the country and world courted controversy, by covering Chill E.B’s daring new work, with slants of sensationalism.

www.chilleb.com

On a massive international world tour since 2010, Chill E.B. has impressively injected his music into the hearts and minds of countless crowds in over 25 countries, and growing. Due to his staunch activism to spread the truth and confront evil head on, he has received a growing list of commendations and humanitarian awards, including;

-Proclamation from the Mayor of Jacksonville, NC proclaiming August 14 as Chill E.B. Day

-California Peace Award, presented by The California Wellness Foundation, and

-CCHR Human Rights Award, for his “outstanding contribution through music to raising awareness about a child’s right to be label and drug free,” among more.

It doesn’t get much better than that when it comes to making the world a better place, through the art of music. And with that, we are very pleased to bring you here our second rare, exclusive interview with rap star Chill E.B.

CHILD ABUSE REPORT: KEEPING KIDS SAFE IN HOLLYWOOD

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/walking-prey-holly-austin-smith/1115892493?ean=9781137278739

The Hollywood Sentinel is the now weekly online entertainment site, found at www.HollywoodSentinel.com (back issues are now at www.TheHollywoodSentinel.com) that features ONLY the good news, and is read by some of the top VIP’s in Hollywood. It now provides special Breaking News Daily Editions by e-mail to select VIP’s in the entertainment world.

Keeping Kids Safe In Hollywood

Some of this information has been published by us before, however, it needs repeated over and over so that we maximize every opportunity we have to reach as many parents and kids as possible with this hugely valuable and crucially important information.

While the Hollywood Sentinel reports ‘only the good news,’ we also believe in being realists, and confronting the greatest form of evil on the planet–child sex abuse. The GOOD news is, we can get the word out there, we can stand up to the abusers, and we can help prevent more children from falling prey to these perpetrators.

The Hollywood Sentinel’s Bruce Edwin has had the pleasure to meet both Evan Henzi and Corey Feldman as seen in the clip below. We applaud them both for their strength and bravery in coming forward to do something to help put a stop to the disgusting travesty of child sex abuse in Hollywood.

Corporate Prophet Ad

Protecting Children

We are pleased about the news of pedophile and child rapist Jared Fogle getting 15 and a half years  in a federal prison.  While we can think of a far more fitting justice for Fogle, at least some justice is being served. He will reportedly serve around 13 years of this sentence. Thank you to federal prosecutors who did not relent in this manner. Former Subway spokesman Fogle engaged in the statutory rape  of two children, and contributed to the creation of child porn of 12 other child sex victims by drugging them and getting them drunk, and also failing to report the creation of child porn he knew about and used.

FRANCESCA

Child Trafficking Prevention

The cause of child sex trafficking prevention is slowly and gradually starting to become more newsworthy and more a cause of celebrities.

FACT: The majority of child trafficking cases are not reported, or are largely under-reported, ignored, or buried by mainstream media.

WHY?

1) Subject matter. Many are too afraid or not willing to confront what is truly the most evil, ugly subject matter on the planet.

2) Fighting trafficking is a dangerous job. Many traffickers at the top level up the chain are connected to gangs, organized crime, drug traffickers and militia groups, and yes– at times politicians, heads of state, and other top persons in positions of power and public attention. Most mainstream media are unwilling to confront top power avenues, particularly if their lives or jobs are at stake for naming names.

3) When fighters of trafficking are found out, or engage in direct confrontation, they are often met with death threats, covert attempts on their life, or armed attack. Some are murdered.

ISSUES:

Some so called independent media  which advertise alcohol, pot, pills, porn, and prostitution, have the audacity to run lying articles stating that the problem of child trafficking is not as big as certain groups state. Wrong, it is BIGGER.

Super Bowl Trafficking:  Sites including ‘snopes’ attempts to report that there is no significant increased incidents of child trafficking during and at cities which host the Super Bowl. Our contacts prove that so called myth de-bunking a LIE. The stats DO rise.

Many conservative laws treat pimped children as criminals. Traffickers often use this fact to scare children further into reporting them, with the kids fearing that they will be arrested for prostitution if they go to try get help or get away.

(Note: We do thank the City of Los Angeles for their recent change of laws concerning no longer treating child victims of sex abuse as criminals or prostitutes).

Stopping Child Trafficking Entails Five Main Areas:

1, Self Esteem: The more self esteem a child has, the better chance they have at not being a victim.

This entails how the media portrays women and children in the media, which play a big role in how young girls and boys view themselves and treat others. When for example, a U.S. presidential candidate repeats vulgar obscenities describing female body parts, to be used as a degrading insult to attack an opponent (language once only found in ‘R’ rated films, and when media repeats such obscenities over and over, it not only degrades culture, it lowers the value placed on women and young girls.

Teach Self Worth

Teach your child that they are valuable, and they their self worth has nothing to do with sex or their body. The self esteem of far too many women and girls, especially those in Hollywood or aspiring to ‘make it’ in Hollywood, succumb to the wrong idea that they are only valuable to the degree that they are wanted sexually or romantically by a man. This is false, and is a ploy that pedophiles often use as a tool to manipulate young women and children. Teach your children self esteem, and that they have immense value as a human being, which can not be taken away by anyone, even if they are hurt, or told otherwise. Teach your children to be strong and powerful–NOT victims.

Do NOT let your kids give out their personal info. to anyone that you do not know and trust.

2, Education: Kids need educated as to how traffickers work, what they do, and how to spot them and prevent being abused. Don’t scare your kids. Teach them the fact that most of society is safe, and that people ‘are’ basically good. But do teach them the reality of child trafficking and child abduction and abuse, and how they can prevent being a victim of it.

3, Rescue: Finding and Locating Traffickers and Rescuing Children: With the exception of a few, most anti-child sex trafficking groups do not even find or locate abusers and bust them, or rescue children. Most merely serve as a so called ‘safe house’ to indoctrinate kids with their political or religious agenda, when they are most vulnerable, after they are rescued. More groups need to be formed that actually locate abusers and kids, and rescue them, bringing abusers to justice.

4, Housing: Taking Care of Kids after they have been rescued, providing them a safe place, and making sure that they do not repeat the cycle.  At this stage, kids don’t need preached to or made to feel wrong, or required to listen to indoctrination or coerced to sign up for anything. Also, they should not be put on pills or other drugs which will further dehumanize and control them.

5, Promotion: Letting the public know about the reality of trafficking and how they can also help us stop it.

Be there with your child every minute at any meeting, casting, audition, go-see, class, job, or interview for an agent, manager, casting director, or the like. Be there. You have a right to be. If they don’t like it, or say you can’t, walk out, and call ME and I will deal with them for you personally.

There is much, much more we need to discuss concerning this topic, but this is a start.  I hope this has helped many of you.

WALKING PREY

Today, two cultural forces are converging to make America’s youth easy targets for sex traffickers. Younger and younger girls are engaging in adult sexual attitudes and practices, and the pressure to conform means thousands have little self-worth and are vulnerable to exploitation. At the same time, thanks to social media, texting, and chatting services, predators are able to ferret out their victims more easily than ever before. In Walking Prey, advocate and former victim Holly Austin Smith shows how middle class suburban communities are fast becoming the new epicenter of sex trafficking in America. Smith speaks from experience: Without consistent positive guidance or engagement, Holly was ripe for exploitation at age fourteen. A chance encounter with an older man led her to run away from home, and she soon found herself on the streets of Atlantic City. Her experience led her, two decades later, to become one of the foremost advocates for trafficking victims. Smith argues that these young women should be treated as victims by law enforcement, but that too often the criminal justice system lacks the resources and training to prevent the vicious cycle of prostitution. This is a clarion call to take a sharp look at one of the most striking human rights abuses, and one that is going on in our own backyard.
