VIRTUAL REALITY (NO, REALLY….)

Sup People, long time no talk to! Ya boy has been busy dealing with life and all it’s wonderful interruptions. Honestly, I took some time off to kick it with family and friends, something I was failing at, miserably. We tend to get caught up in the rat race and forget the things (people) that are REALLY important. In the ...

TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR

People always ask me “what was 2pac like?” I usually tell em “We don’t have enough time to really do him any justice, So…” Then they usually give me a look like…”Whatever, asshole…” (LOL!) It’s not that I’m trying to be rude, but it’s such a broad question, that for me to really answer it, truthfully, I would have to ...

Gay Marriage, Obama And The Bible

I have friends and family that are gay as the day is long. Some in the open some in the “closet”. It was never a big deal to me. In Most cases we all knew from a pretty early age who and what they were. I remember hearing the ol heads saying things like “Yeah, that one got a lil ...

B.I.G

Their names will forever be synonymous, intertwined, linked and associated with each other. Tupac and Biggie. HipHops great gods from the 90’s, our artforms greatest era, in my opinion. Christopher Wallace burst on the scene in 1993. I remember hearing “Party and Bullshit” from the “Who’s the Man” soundtrack and thinking “who the fuck is that?!?” The dude was dope ...

WTF??? (Why we don’t ask any real questions.)

I recall back when we were working on the MAKAVELI album, we were reading all types of shit. One day Pac came home with a bunch of books and began handing them out. Everything from “Blood In my Eye” by George Jackson, to “how to make home made bombs.”(!) Anyway, the shit we were reading eventually led to some serious ...

BLACK LEADRERSHIP IN 2012

TheKing (Martin Luther not T.I) was a hopeless dreamer. If he really did have that “dream”, as he so eloquently stated in the seminal speech he gave some 40 somthin years ago, then it was more than likely a nightmare in my opinion. Why did we feel the need to have to eat with whites, go to school, work, live ...

Ok, so 2012 is right around the corner, or by the time some of you read this it will already be here. Are you excited? I always look forward to a new year, well, because I hate anything old. I’m an impatient dude sometimes, and I’m usually done with a year after July! Lol. Knowledge ruined Thanksgiving and Christmas for ...

ALITY T.V. (What’s Real Got to Do With It?)

In the 70’s Bill Loud and his wife allowed PBS and its cameras to follow his family for a Documentary called “An American Family”. It’s considered to be the template for todays “reality T.V.” shows. In their present form, they are a huge TV cash cow with milk to spare. It seems a new one pops up every season. I ...
