Exhibit A – JAY-Z and JAY ELECTRONICA, ‘We Made It’ Freestyle.

Jay-Electronica-Jay-Z_320 (1)

Jay-Z and Jay Electronica drop 5% knowledge and black history on the theme “we made it from slavery.” Jay Electronica is known for having deep, poetic lyrics but Jay-Z is known more for being a gangster lyricist, ex-crack dealing, board-room walking businessman married to Beyonce. Most people don’t know he had his period of 5% teachings prior to his fame. Also interesting to note that the Masons seem to have stolen alot of knowledge from Egypt which was according to some black culture anyway (investigate the Kingdom of Kush and the Moorish Kingdom for the hidden history of black kings), so maybe there’s another source for the pyramid imagery beyond the Illuminati accusations. I’ve never been a big fan of Jay-Z, I like Can I Live and Broklyn’s Finest but my favourite Jay-Z tracks either have a Nas verse, or a Biggie verse on it. Now there’s one with a Jay Electronica verse on it cos they both kill this track AND drop knowledge. Respect due.

The devil, the haters, the bloggers, the papers, the labels, they labeled me
But they can’t relate to our struggle, my nigga, we came up from slavery

Exhibit B – AB-SOUL and JOEY BADA$$, ‘Enter The Void’

joey absoul

Ab-Soul and Joey Bada$$ have been talking about chakras in rhymes for a couple of years (not as long as I have though http://www.kpkevthepoet.bandcamp.com ) but here they have a call for spiritual awareness in the chorus that is so unashamedly ironically gangsta but aware, only these two could get away with saying…

Keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your mouth shut and keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your all seeing eye open)

 

 

Full Lyrics for both (via http://www.rapgenius.com – check em out.)

Jay Z – We Made It Freestyle Lyrics

[Verse 1: Jay Electronica]

The devil, the haters, the bloggers, the papers, the labels, they labeled me
But they can’t relate to our struggle, my nigga, we came up from slavery

Apologies go out to all of my fans cause they waited so patiently
This one is for all of the lost and forgotten black angels that prayed for me
A milli, a milli, niggas love me cause I’m ill
The greatest story ever told, niggas in the field
From Solomon to Sambo to Django, it’s fact

I’m the Farrakhan of rap and I get it from the wheel
The son of WD, who hung around in the D
Who ran around in the three
The trap gods raised me
Face all on the Sphinx
Story all in the wall of the pyramids
Niggas know the Black God saved me
You can blow the nose off, that won’t change it
Obamacare won’t heal all that anguish
We came a long way from the bottom of the boat
All praise to the Mahdi, we found our language
Gold necklace, middle finger erected
God tribe of Shabazz stylin’ on the record
Lost sons of Muhammad, we wildin’ in the wreckage
Asha du illah illaha is the message

All these niggas, I got to fight one
All these devils, I got to strike some
All these rebels just waitin’ on the war cry
Mama said: “son, you got to strike drum”

Roc Nation, celebration
Motivation, elevation

Nigga we made it from slaves on a slaveship
Live from the cotton fields, straight to the spaceship


[Interlude: Kenny Powers]
Kinda makes me wonder why the hell so many people are tryna tell me to slow down. Seems like motherfuckers should be shuttin’ the hell up and enjoyin’ the show


[Verse 2: Jay Z]
Hop off the slave ship
Popped off my chain and took it to Jacob, I got it gold plated
Walked in that bitch like “Nigga we made it!”

I own my own masters, you know I ain’t missin’ no royalty statements
I can’t be rated (God, God), damn Hov stunt on them haters
Sorry Mrs. Drizzy for so much art talk
Silly me rappin’ ’bout shit that I really bought

While these rappers rap about guns they ain’t shot
And a bunch of other silly shit that they ain’t got

I’m on my Lupita Nyong’o
Stuntin’ on stage, after 12 Years A Slave
This Ace of Spades look like an Oscar

Black tux, look like a mobster
Don’t make me RRRRAA yah, nigga watch your tone
I come to court with black boxers on
Y’all hella jealous of my melatonin
I could black out at any given moment

I’m God, G is the seventh letter made
So when my arms & feet shackled I still get paid
All praises due
I’m ready to chase the Yakub back into caves

These are the last days, but do I seem fazed?
Showed up to the last supper in some brand new J’s
I’m the true and livin’, book of Hov
New religion, 8th wonder of the world, alien, superstition

You’re blind, baby
Blind to the fact of who you are maybe

My bloodline’s crazy
Kings and queens and Michael Jordan rings

I go stupido, sucio
The flow is filthy, y’all can’t kill me

I’ve been inoculated from the snakes and the fakes
The corny handshakes, cock sucker we made it

 

Joey BADA$$ – Enter the Void Lyrics

Produced By: Lee Bannon
[Verse 1: Ab-Soul]
Tell my momma I’m a shaman rhymin’
Jesus Christ and Shawn Carter are my only idols
No, Jesus Christ and Shawn Carter are my only rivals
I’m the Messiah of rap, my catalog’s the Bible
To the new generation of lost souls
Student loans, iPhones, reality TV shows

It shows a host of wise, but blind drones
Post Babylonia, so I’m told
It could be bologna, so I don’t hold it to be fact
Just tryna put the pieces together, puzzled by this madness
If that dollar crashes, niggas gone panic
What we gonna do? How we gon eat? Don’t even know how to
Grow fruit,
 detached from your roots, nigga, me too
I’m doing drugs, fornicating and eating fast food

But I know I got three eyes cause I’m looking past you

[Hook: Joey Bada$$ & Ab-Soul]
Enter the void
This for my hundred dollar billers to destroy
Spreading word of knowledge to through decoys
People realize that it’s time to deploy
Stay on point – open your third eye, boy
(And keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your mouth shut and keep your motherfucking Chakras open
Keep your all seeing eye open)


[Verse 2: Joey Bada$$]
Had to escape nest, told Moms I’m Apex
And plus I lay checks, I bust in the latex
So it’s nothing stopping the kid if you get where I come from

Busting conundrums on nuns and condoms
Don’t want no problems, It’s the number one solver
Can’t see me with these sentences, get your bars up
I’m close to the pen, I depend on this shit

Ain’t tryna be dead bent, I’ll ascend off this spliff
You can’t pretend with this shit
See, I know what’s real and what isn’t

Ain’t shit obscured with my vision, plus the herbs that I’m hittin’
Allow me to observe what is hidden

Could have been a cherry-pickin’ nigga, if I ain’t make jams and bury niggas
Used to be the sweetest ’til life handed me the lemons, nigga
Now everyday I see the sour patches
The flower of life devoured into ashes

[Hook]

Easter, 4/20 and Christ Consciousness (yes, all three.)

Easter – it is what it is. Christ’s return turns to chocolate binge. Data. Religion – source of morals, hope and faith or source of lies, deception and fear? Positive or negative? Just data?

4/20 – it is what it is. The illegality means that most so-called straight people ignore the medicinal benefits or even the recreational benefits, but the recreational benefits mean that stoners ignore the financial detriment and the possible psychological detriment. Positive or negative? Just more data?

The fact that I ask difficult questions generally ostracises me from groups. I grew to love that but that perception of fierce independence just made it appear more difficult for me to integrate into the few groups that are not based on out-dated modes of thinking. That’s fine, that’s just an appearance. A currently slightly annoying one to be honest, but I’m getting better at living with being slightly annoyed. According to at least one prophecy “the time of the Lone Wolf is over”. If my connections to a group don’t grow organically they won’t grow at all. As well they shouldn’t. They are growing.

I don’t have answers, just questions. Sometimes just knowing that other people are asking similar questions is a benefit. Sometimes asking questions just starts arguments. I’m a philosopher, I guess risking an argument is my preference.

I could go further off the reservation. We could go into the ins and outs of raw chocolate vs cooked chocolate in milk and sugar, we could go into raw herb vs smoked herb. We could go into Christ-consciousness, could it be the consciousness that does not judge? I judge, alot more than I like to admit to myself. But that’s okay too, all is well. But could it be the consciousness that does not judge?

Well if Christ-consciousness is a thing it’s probably a thing we should re-name cos anything associated with religion upsets some people and just irritates others. For now I am calling it evolution. Others might call it the Era of Great Benefit.

Whatever, couldn’t leave Easter Sunday’s 4/20 without saying something philosophical about both. Well actually I could, but I didn’t.

Drag Link/Photos Here!

I like writing things. Terence Mckenna said “create your own media” and the internet allows us to do this. However when we create our own media through coporations we do not own, such as facebook, or even WordPress, we are playing their game by their rules and they can change those rules at any time.

I started writing a paper Newsletter / Zine under an alias just to get things off my chest. I stopped because it wasn’t exalted positivity but cathartic whinging for the most part I can see how it was beneficial for me to get the ideas off my chest but I’m not sure it was entirely beneficial for people to read. It had it’s benefits, it made some people laugh, and it may have satisfied other people just to know that people shared their perceptions. But if those perceptions were not making me happy all I was doing was reinforcing a belief that was not making me happy.

Anyway, I don’t know where to draw the line between self expression and reification, which means making something real out of something that is not real. For example we talk about our emotions as if they’re things that can control us or hurt us. But they are abstract concepts, they can only do what we think they can do. I’m not even sure if they can do that much.

Give me time, this will all make sense eventually 🙂 x

Near Death Experience (of a friend.)

My friend died. She was rescuscitated. She was aware between life and life, and she remembers what she experienced. According to her she learned 3 important lesons.

 

These are the words of someone that died.

1 – it’s not where you’re from but what you do. It’s your deeds not your creed that matters.

2 – judgment comes from within, but you can’t escape yourself or your own judgment. When you die your ‘Hell’ if you have one is your own judgment.

3 – we take nothing with us. Nothing. Not even our bodies. Not our cars, homes, money, nothing. Not even our bodies.

 

That was her experience.

All we have is now. One moment at a time, one day at a time. Share love.

All is well.

stop thinking part 3

Synchronous links… mystic moments,
May these synchronous days keep on flowing,

relaxation… easing tension…
acceptance of the lessons… leading to ascension,

Allowing things to happen with synchronous timing…
stars aligning, inspiring rhyming,

heart to heart relating, contemplating, meditating,
destined fates n chakras aligned, spinning round and radiating.

Releasing attachment to perceived meaning and beaming,
Facing inner demons with a smile n bein best friends when we’re leavin’!

A simple choice to rest in the face of tests, Every day fresh.
Give thanks, cos even with challenges – every day blessed. URGH!

Stop thinking… And relax body and mind completely
The Matrix can’t delete me… cos these Agents can’t defeat me!

We ARE the architect, we’re all the oracle, we’re Neo.
We are the Matrix itself, when I say so it lets me go.

X2 …we’re even the Agents, there’s still no enemy for me though.

Sometimes I write raps, sometimes I write spells that rhyme
And give the blessed meek in hellish times a little help to shine

Sometimes I write poems, sometimes I write spells that rhyme
So cool that they could even freeze over Hell in times of arma-

Gideon’s Bible study… with Rocket Racoon
…Armed with lyrics like a US rocket platoon

But armed with seed bombs of hemp, cos I’m a Rainbow Warrior
In service of mother Earth, yes “so that’s why nothin’s stopping ya!”

But prophecy’s just another story, even outshine that data,
Living for the benefit of all, not for glory or paper.

Isn’t that a story too? That’s just how the Tao does do,
Reality’s apparently an infinitely fractal jigsaw puzzle!

You either live with it or you bought the farm,
I’d rather live a life in love than avoiding harm.

The sun always shines behind the clouds so what’s the point of drama?
We’re all allowed to freak out, I just prefer responding calmer.

xxx xxxxx xxxxxxxx

Stop thinking… And relax body and mind completely
The Matrix can’t delete me… cos these Agents can’t defeat me!

We are the architect, we’re all the oracle, we’re Neo.
We are the Matrix itself, when I say so it lets me go.

X2 …we’re even the Agents,  there’s still no enemy for me though.

Our personal connections to infinite consciousness’s obviously
…more than enough to manifest love, abundance and property.

To manifest love, hemp and ‘Free Energy’. The prophecy’s
a sustainABLE enlightened way of life, cos it’s gotta be  x

Cos anything less than… sustainable….
Is by definition… Unsustainable.

The new world orders goals are… unattainable,
But there are Infinite ‘novos ordo seclorums’ available.

Our personal connections to infinite consciousness’s obviously

To manifest love, balance and harmony. The prophecy’s
a sustainABLE enlightened way of life… cos it’s gotta be!

New Monetary System

(unfinished, I’ve since made the lyrics less judgmental and more open intelligence inspired but it’s saved on my phone)

We look for solutions not for victims or villains
We want a new monetary system!

We want more… sustainable ways of livin!
We want a new monetary system!

We want an upgrade from capitalisms cannibalism
We want a new monetary system!

If these bankers are villains we could choose to forgive em but
We want a new monetary system!

***
They’re running out of oil, they’re running out of gold,
Their ways are out of order, their ways are simply old.

These banksters are villains, we see through them with wisdom
We want a new monetary system!

We have a new system, it’s called sharing.
The new systems an old but open source system, sharing is caring.

We have a new system, it’s called sharing.
The new is old but open source, sharing is caring.

<CHORUS>

We look for solutions not for victims or villains
We want a new monetary system!

We want more… sustainable ways of livin!
We want a new monetary system!

We want an upgrade from capitalisms cannibalism
We want a new monetary system!

If these bankers are villains we could choose to forgive em but
We want a new monetary system!

_

We have a new system, it’s called sharing.
The new systems an old but open source system, sharing is caring.

We have a new system, it’s called sharing.
The new is old but open source, sharing is caring.

We look for solutions, not for villains or victims, but
We want a new monetary system!

We want more… sustainable ways of livin!
We want a new monetary system!

We want an upgrade from capitalisms cannibalism
We want a new monetary system!

If these banksters are villains, we see could choose to forgive them
We want a new monetary system!

We have a new system, it’s called sharing.
The new systems an old but open source system, sharing is caring.

We have a new system, it’s called sharing.
The new is old but open source, sharing is caring.

My bredrin Little King said “it’s like a game of Monopoly
and the bankers cheating” so let’s play new games properly

My bredrin Natty Lee said “we have a new system
It’s called sharing,” so let’s replace isms with livin

My bredrin Ali said we need a new mission,
Tom the Dancing fool suggested the monetary system…

We look for solutions, not for villains or victims, but…

maybe…

WE DON’T NEED NO MONETARY SYSTEM!

Prose – Edging God Out

“let go the ego. You don’t have to show.
“” “” everyone already know.”

Once I was walking through St Pauls, Bristol and I heard two guys talking, and one of them said to the other,
“Ego. E. G. O. Edging God Out.”
This depends on your definition of ego and your definition of God. But Edging Nature Out and Edging The Universe Out does not spell Ego so they’re just not as user-friendly.
There is nothing wrong with high self-esteem, I recommend cultivating high self esteem. However I have learned that self esteem outshines depression more consistently when self esteem comes from appreciating your strengths, gifts and talents as one with nature and the universe rather than as a disconnected individual. Individually we can fall in and out of favour depending on perception but as one with nature and the universe we are all always perfect but never better than anyone else.

We all have dreams. But loving yourself is not about putting yourself above others, it’s about loving everybody. If you hold back and let others shine you can shine your light as bright as you like when it’s your time to shine.

Let short moments of clarity,
i-wareness and open source telepathically
networked intelligence
be your prescription and yer medicine.

Then you will know when to shine
your strengths, gifts and talents
For the benefit of all…
And maintain balance.

You Are Mother Nature!

<CHORUS>
In my observation of vibration many of us, if not most of us,
have suffered enough due to not loving ourselves enough,

either depending on someone else for that love or not loving ourselves enough
…to believe that someone else could love us.. And that’s just not just, trust! x2

<Verse 1?>
(I myself have suffered both in the past, sometimes at the sane time).
But the past is the past, the now is all that matters if that was a lame time.

But we are nature itself, and nature is deserving of love and awe,
Exaltation, reverence and more.

we are completely natural including our insecurities
which are evidence of our experience and empathic abilities

and it is hardly surprising when we are surrounded by media which preys on our insecurities to sell us things we’re not needing, yeah

We are not alone with insecurities, we are far from alone, shelve your…
worries. perhaps most of us could learn to love ourselves more.

But you are an expression of nature itself, Mother earth raised ya.
And nothing’s more worthy of love than mother nature,

and that’s each and every one of us including you. When life frustrates ya…
Remember… You are mother nature. X2

You are mother nature. X4
