Hello Everyone, 

     I Just wanted to share an experience I had with a Local Detroit "rapper" named A.K.Ace Knives. He made constant sexual advances, which were refused, and when they were refused he turned very disrespectful. His music isn't necessarily "his". I have personally seen him listen to songs and write lyrics down and just reword them so it seems as though his lyrics are original. These type of type of individuals should not be allowed to produce music for the community because they are unsafe to be around in general. Several of my friends have also had the same experiences with him and to be quite honest it is a little scary. I have been around these kind of people before and they are not to be trusted. 

He also acts very unprofessional when prompted to talk about business or anything of that nature. Things related to his "rap career" seem important until he doesn't get the exact type of offer he wants and then  once again becomes disrespectful. I have met multiple individuals like this throughout my career as agent, but this man is by far the worst. I would suggest any producers/agents to steer clear of him because there is no telling how disrespectful he can get. The way professionals should act hasn't changed or anything over the years. You have to respect your agents. You have to respect your producers. Maintain positive business relationships to be known as an exceptional person and musician.  

I hope this article was helpful to anyone who has had the same ecounter with A.K.Ace Knives that I did or has had the same encounter with any other so called proessionals in the music community. Also, if anyone else has dealt with clients or potential clients that have been like Knives has, please report them or take a little bit of action to let others know that they may be unstable. To any musicians who happen to be reading this, please try and be an upstanding member of society. It will really help you in the long run. Thanks for reading and good luck out there to all the upcoming musicians.

Every douchebag who... I can't even say speak English, because most of these morons can't even speak English. Every douchebag who can manage to fumble out some incoherent words from his mouth thinks he is some big shot rapper these days. This guy is just another among the masses in an urban environment thinking that because they can count to five that they are some sort of voice of their generation. Really all they do is mumble and spit vulgarities about women and promote drug use and a less than satisfactory life-style... Despite usually not living said lifestyle themselves.

@Angela K., thanks for the heads up and bringing this situation to light for the community - for both the professionals who may encounter him and to bring these cautions to the community at large.

I have not explored his music and lyricism, but if this behavior is true, that is indeed not a very good example of someone who is an upstanding member of society--especially in this day and age--and in the position he is, which is something I believe should be an opportunity to be a good role model...annd, especially, as a "member" of Detroit's local hip-hop community.

Sad thing is... @Piddle. B., I don't send my judgements, but you are probably right. :/

There are too many artists that has drugs and vulgarities in their songs as it is,we dont need anymore,if anything they should come with lyrics that actually matter ON THEIR OWN,if they cant do that then they shouldnt be an artist.

I find this to be entirely disgraceful. We are supposed to trust our clients, we are supposed to trust up and coming musicians. It is really sad to see things turn out this way.
