With all the Hook Filled Songs & Trivial Singers & Rappers Out there on The Radio…We Still got Some Artists Laying down Profound Lyrics & Music.

As long as these Djelis/Griots/Oral Historians/Timeless Lyricists Remain/We won’t go Insane/–d Slavemaster thought we was 100% cut off/–dude done lost his brain/–Mother Africa’s children, breaking ball & chain.

Listen to John Legend & The Roots version of “Little Ghetto Boy.”
*(Original Version–Donny Hathaway–1970’s)

Listen to Black Thought of The Roots drop them bars/–putting healing balm on scars, kicking down mental bars, we getting ours/–QuestLove, on d Drums, hitting wt Power, Rhythm, Freedom/–pulling minds 4rm slums/–John Legend, coming in wt harmony in his voice/–Break Free Little Ghetto Boy, No Choice/–Mother Africa Ain’t Forgot You/–Lyrical Freedom Fighters Coming after You.

Music in My Life

Music in My Life

I’m back to d music/–never should have left it/–but d daily grind of life hard/–music 1 of my passions/–not so much d beats/–but d stories they tell/–they make my mind swell/–light in a dark world/–words manipulated to make people feel low/–light, postive/–dark, negative, break positive flow/–what kind of crap is that/–language, distorts facts/–now, we must readjust our racks (minds), get in time wt d time/–living in hard times of nickels & dimes/–Music, real music, bout breaking out man-made confines/–lyrics of substance, elevate minds/–Jewels for The Minds.
