“You Got To” by Firan “4RON” Chisolm

Hello Friends:


You Got To by Firan “4RON” Chisolm is the sixth song to be featured on my Blog as part of my mission to provide you with inspiration through songs that have been performed by musicians on Alive with Clive over the past couple of years.


4RON performed You Got To during his interview on Alive with Clive on June 27, 2008.


As mentioned in his Bio on his My Space page, artist, songwriter, arranger and engineer, 4RON is from the Crotona Park section of the Bronx.  He has appeared alongside hip hop legends Busy Bee and Poor Righteous Teachers for Hurricane Katrina relief at the Maya Angelou Charter School in Washington, D.C.; at the Apollo Theater; and at various venues in and around New York City, including Joe’s Pub and The Knitting Factory.


I met 4RON at one of Cassandra Kubinski’s concerts.  4RON met Cassandra when she performed at Rivington House for an organization known as LIFEBeat, which has created a program called Hearts & Voices. 


LIFEbeat’s Hearts & Voices program brings the gift of live music to thousands of people living with AIDS at facilities throughout New York City including hospitals, hospices, residential facilities and treatment centers.  Every week, talented musicians from all musical genres volunteer their time to play shows for this most appreciative of audiences.  Because most people in these facilities are not able to go out to enjoy live music and entertainment, Hearts & Voices brings the beat of the city to them.  For more information about LIFEbeat, click here.  For more information and to see a moving short video clip about LIFEbeat’s Hearts & Voices program, click here.


During his interview on Alive with Clive, 4RON also performed a fabulous duet with Cassandra called She’s Worth It.

When discussing his song, You Got To, on Alive with Clive, 4RON had these inspiring words to say:


Basically [You Got To is] talking about how you’ve got to keep it moving.  You’re going to go through different things in life and you can’t let it stop you.  Everything is fleeting.  Life is fleeting.  Anything you go through in life is temporary.  The good, the bad.  You’ve got to take it all the same, because it’s never going to be permanent.  The only thing permanent is death.  So anything in life is temporary.  So keep it moving because what we do as people sometimes is we tend to go through bad times sometimes and we let that stop us.  But the blessing is right there.  All you’ve got to do is keep moving to it.  If you let the bad thing stop you before you get there, you never reach it and you’ll be thinking:  “What if?  I should have done this.  I should have done that.”  (Emphasis added.)


And in one of the verses of the song, he says:


I’ve been paying my dues longer than ever

Must have done me some good

Because your boy is stronger than ever

Learning costs, the lesson’s free

You should get the most from

Whatever you’re destined to be.
