The legend Styles P on the suicide of his daughter and the value of life.

Styles P (aka The Ghost), one third of legendary rap group The LOX, lost a daughter to suicide recently. It’s sad but trust, the wisdom he shares on the instagram post is worth reading, so positive and inspiring. He speaks on the true value of life over material things. This is some of realest talk […]

The King of Hip-Hop

There is no king of Hip-Hop. In my humble opinion there can’t be a king of Hip-Hop. “Why can’t there be a king of Hip-Hop…?” because music is a matter of opinion, it’s a subjective thing. Nothing determines the king. The best selling artist might be trash – Vanilla Ice sold ALOT of music in […]

Black Steel In the Age of An@rchy

Inspired by Chuck D, Public Enemy and current Hip-hop media… I remember when Hip-hop culture was revolutionary / now all these rap websites have ads for the military / house negroes like “hey master, hey massa, hey boss” / while I still bump ‘Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos’ / like “I got a […]

Too many rappers, not enough poets #hiphop #poetry

2Pac wrote poems. Just saying. hmmm… Too many rappers, not enough poets, that’s how I felt about Hip-Hop culture til recently, too much TURN UP, TURN UP and not enough “I sip the Dom P watching Gandhi til I’m charged…” but I’m content without the competition. But in the past two years I dare say […]

I noticed both Styles P and Method Man were using Audiomack and thought, well if it’s good enough for those legends […]

#2pac and #Biggie ( #realhiphop )

They’re still trying to be 2pac and Biggie / but oh no, only know All Eyez On Me and Mackaveli. Who me? / I’m still feeling Keep ya Head Up, Brenda’s got a Baby, Dear Momma, and Holla if ya Hear Me, / who me? I’m still trying to be Run DMC meets Chuck D, […]

WISE with WISDOM (the truth is we strive to be wise)

Went from raw food vegan, not even eggs or goats cheese Back to meaty sarnies and Jamaican chicken rotis Went from rolling cheese with baccy from pavement rollies to ganja in the juicer to no buds let alone no stems and no seeds I went from raves with junglist gurners even though I took no […]

Dilla Time (Listening to J Dilla)

(Just chillin) In Winchmore Hill listening to Dilla, playing DOTA, planning like Corleone and Sosa But not to kill or sell no coke, naw, just pay bills, n not be broke, Or to have no bills, but firewood, fireplace, and best tings at my place. Big tings a gwan in my life and the best […]
