We wanted to bring you all something really special for CMX Summit 2021: Rise. A piece of art that we can all gather around, feel inspired by, and experience together. Written by CMX Summit speaker, and incredible artist, Ramel Wallace.


This is CMX in Harmony

100% of people come from communities

From infancy to eulogy, you and me are u-n-i-t-y (Shout out to the Queen)

Communities are neighbors that change the way you think

And diversity will always makes communities unique

Community is an opportunity to build a pathWith fellow CMXers that is strong enough to last

So rise, thrive look each other in the eyes

Work together to be better and we can access the sky


The community is innovation

We just need an opportunity because it’s quicker than some litigation

We ain’t patient but we been waiting

Waking up in Hade every day, we have been fighting Satan

Saging, tryna find that sensation chasing the feeling of creation

Have you ever had a dream or a thought

that you transformed into an art, and it kept you from falling apart?

This is that this not just rap, this is bigger than any other vision that I had in the past

and I just want to pass that feelin’ into your cognition from the CMX into the ceiling

to the sentient beings in the building

to the young men, women and children

Welcome to our colosseum, we were invisible, and now you see him


Communities a part of me

humans are my arteries

this is CMX in harmony


Communities a part of me

The internet’s an artery

this is CMX in harmony
